A lovely place for a rest away from the bustle of town. Cake and drinks at mid afternoon were good. Food took a while to be served but because it was obviously freshly made to order.

The place and the sorroundings are beautiful, huge garden and the cafe is well design. We had good juices and some pasta wich was ok. If you go, you will be paying for all the extras and not just for the quality of the food.

One word - "Trout" Himalayan Trout masala with steamed rice and palak madra was memorable. Beautifully presented and delicate on the palette. Loved the ambience. Besides that, the rest was pretty average. Limited menu and variety of apple beverages to choose from. This is still the best you can expect in the sleepy hill station of Manali. In short -... More

Your visit to Manali is in complete if you have not made a trip to this cafe.. A limited menu but very specialised and caters to both continental and limited indian fare.. Variety of drinks available at affordable prices.. A must do every time I'm in Manali..

Part of the picturesque Johnson’s Hotel, this café prides itself on being the place which first started, in 1997, serving up Manali trout, fresh-caught from the Beas river. It's still a major USP of the café, so (being fond of fish), when we passed Johnson’s on our way back from the Hadimba Devi Temple, we stopped here for lunch. For... More
