“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

I visited the place 10 years ago and returned there this week. It's still as charming and tasty as I remembered.
Thanks to its location in Baber Mahal, it's a very quiet place, you can enjoy the courtyard, without hearing the traffic which is so rare in Kathmandu !
The service is perfect, (the waiters can also take your order in French).
The food is great, the servings are generous, there's no disappointment, you get what you ordered and it tastes as you expect it to taste, meat is tender and perfectly cooked. (I really enjoyed my steak au poivre).
As per Kathmandu's standard, it's rather a place of luxury, but it's definitively one to visit and it would be perfect for a special occasion.

“Excellent food and superb service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

This is a absolute-must-visit-restaurant in Kathmandu! The food was brilliant! I almost miss Kathmandu just for "Chez caroline" ;-). We made a few visits there... I had some adorable pasta aubergine and the lamb steaks were exquisite! If you go there, be sure to order the chocolat fondant as a desert already when seated, as this desert takes them 20 minutes to make and it is really to die for! I never ever had something close to it even in France. The best chocolat fondant in the world!
