We didn't have to wait long for food, and the food itself was delicious. Menu has lots of choice and both the Indian and more western options are superb. Inside seating is comfortable, especially the low,... More

The outdooor seating is very romantic. It overlooks the river from a height and after dusk just the sound of the water gushing through the river adda to the ambiance of the place. The food is great too but the prices may burn a little hole in the pocket.

This place was among the best till date. What can go wrong in the ambience which is nested away in the nature. Hospitality was equally wonderful. The food was delicious. Marvellous afternoon was defined with a lunch date with this place. Oh and yes, Thanks Dev.

Good food, Good environment and good people. I went to Manali during off season and cafe 1947 and drifters were the only good cafes open during off season. It is very close to iron bridge and easily accessible.

Went to this cafe as per friends recommendation and we have a blast. The food is awesome and having shesha by the gushing river has its own tranquillity and effect. A place for relaxing and spending quality time with friends. The music is just add on for rock fans

I sat on the ground floor of the cafe, relishing the past and bruschetta, watching the Beas river flow by. It was one of the highlights of my trip. The food was excellent and was totally value for money.Definitely recommended

Reaching this place was a struggle, given the noisy traffic at rush hour, but once you're there its peaceful ! the food is awesome and we ate loads sitting next to the fast-flowing mountain river. The breeze was cool and the atmosphere very relaxing as we relished our beer with some great fish and prawn items. The pizzas are from... More
