“Simply amazing..nothing like this in Manali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I absolutely loved this place..the soft rock and jazz music..the crowd..the service..and not to forget, the food..everything was so perfect that we ended up here EVERY night during our 3 day Manali stay.. Its extremely close 3-4 min walk from the main market area..The pizza is extremely yummy, and one of the very rare places wherein the pizza crust is just perfectly thin..its cost about INR340 and was sufficient for 2 people..I also loved the vegetable au gratin and the pastas here..Amazing service, and very polite and amenable waiters..What i particularly liked was that I was able to customize my pizza toppings and add loads of veggies to my pasta at no extra charge! :)
Do visit during your Manali stay..

“Best trout ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Lovely food - the trout here in any form is the best trout I have ever had. I recommend the spicy masala trout or the tandoori trout here, along with some chilled beer or the wide variety of cocktails they have to offer.
Lovely ambience, and excellent food - do not miss

“Coziest place in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We choose this place for our first anniversary outing and we were not disappointed at all. The place is awesome. The rooms are spacious; food is good...they know how to make Italian stuff and most importantly the staff is cozy and makes you feel at home. Adding to list is a nice garden in-front of the hotel....gives a resort type feel. Not the forget is the BAR which is nice and warm.

“Outstanding food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Excellent trout dishes (we tried five or six from the menu), fresh, healthy salads and good wine selection. Very cozy ambience. We ate four out of five dinners here during our stay in Manali and missed the restaurant after returning home to Delhi.
