Good location, reserved parking, green lawns, artistic interiors, good music, not so crowded are few things i noticed at the first glance. Food takes some time to reach, but worth waiting for, we had masala trout (9/10), Appleade (9/10) and crispy chicken(6/10). This place is a little expensive but worth for the ambiance and good food offered. If you wish... More

This maybe not the best trout I had in Manali, I've had 4 trout so far. But I will rate the trout here very close to the trout in People Cafe which I think they are both super good. How ever the grilled vegetables here makes the whole dish perfect. super fresh and flavored. I ordered Wood oven baked trout... More

Me and my husband went to Johnson's restaurant on our last day in Manali and we had to regret about it. We felt Johnson'S is quite overrated. When you enter you get confused is it bar/pub, or cafe or restaurant? Bright light, loud live music (completely for specific taste, my ears couldn't handle it ), kids running all around, noise...just... More

We visited this place after reading a lot of reviews on tripadvisor for dinner, however the place did not live to the hype. Overall this is an average place and we didn't feel cozy or comfortable at even one single moment. The food is so so, we ordered soup and a chicken main dish, the taste and preparation is average...

Had heard a lot about Trout fish in Manali and hence headed over to Johnson's on the circuit house road. Very expensive - Had to pay 500Rs for a slice of trout (found much better value for money elsewhere). The spices were good but a tad bit disappointed overall.
