“What a great place to meet and eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The surroundings: the old stables of a Rana Palace (the whole elegant complex is called Barbar Mahal) with excellent (if a tad pricey) shops, Chez Caroline is a great place to meet for business, have coffee, chat, or eat. For vistors to Kathmandu who want to do some shopping in somewhere that isn't Thamel (wonderful as it is) and grab some lunch, Chez Caroline is the place to go. French spoken, free wi-fi, great ambiance. Unique in Kathmandu.

“Lovely Location & Great Food Too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Set inside a restored rana palace Chez Caroline is one of the nicest places to eat in Kathmandu. It's a little pricier than other restaurants I've visited, but compared to what you'd pay for the same quality of food and ambience in Europe or the US it's pretty reasonable. To get to the restaurant you wander through tiny courtyards, passing some rather nice boutique shops on the way, perfect if you fancy a little retail therapy.

The staff are friendly, helpful and do their best to make your dining experience enjoyable, and if someone in your party has a birthday, do let them know.

Try the warm camembert, walnut and cabbage salad. It's delicious, as is the chicken moussaka, and make sure you leave room for dessert. When you've been in country for a while this oasis of tranquility is well worth a visit.
