Love this place every time I visit manali. Beautiful location next to the river side. It is situated on the river banks. A Perfect place to mellow down and have a nice and good food. One should definitely drop by to have their awesome trout.

Cafe 1947 is the best Italian joint in manali no doubt! They serve awesome pasta, lasagne, pizza, espresso you name it. My personal favourite is their Pizza. The best spot is outside where you can sit by the river side and dine. A must visit for all the foodies out there!

The Burger of Bodom, Margarita Pizza , Tuna Sandwich, Slayer Pizza , Chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, mohito ... everything that we ordered (even the tortilla wraps) were great.. The meats used were fresh and good quality...

Liked the food and the ambience. Especially loved the grilled trout which was superbly cooked and delicious. The only negative, if you view it as such, is that small groups/solo travellers often have to share their table which I personally found uncomfortable. I like my sofa and a slow meal. Otherwise, definitely worth a visit in Manali.
