We tried all of the recommended restaurants in Pokhara and this is our favorite. The food is exceptional and the staff amazing. The bruschetta, vegetarian pad Thai, and vegetarian sample platter are to die for. Don't miss this place!

We shared a pizza for lunch. The crust was tasty and not cracker thin like so many others. Ours was topped with chicken and sun dried tomatoes. Service was prompt and polite. You can sit on the main floor, upstairs or in the back garden.

Was disappointed with the service. I ordered Penne pasta and salad. The pasta was not fresh. When I told the waiter, he argued that the pasta is alright and nothing can be done. I have to cancel the order and went to Chinese restaurant next to Olive. Rude waiter. 7.50pm March 14. 2017

We ate here twice during our 5 days in Pokhara. It's not cheap but the food is fresh and good quality. A good mix of dishes are available, veg and non veg. I had the paneer/veg kebabs cooked in a tandoor oven, served with mash potatoes and fresh vegetables!!! What a treat!! My husband had curry both times and once... More

Went here for breakfast, the coffee was very good as was the service. We had an English breakfast, my only criticism is that my sausages were cold on the inside which is a shame as everything else was pretty good.

Stayed in Pokhara for 2 months from November 2016 through to January 2017 and ate breakfast here many times, sat out front and read the complimentary newspapers whilst enjoying some really good coffee ( not always easy to get) and excellent porage (even harder to get) whilst waited on by attentive and friendly staff - one of my favourite places...
