The place is average. The food is good. They need to improve on ambience. Washrooms are not clean at all.

Where do I start. Food - awesome!, service - super awesome!!, ambiance - awesome. Me and my family loved it. Pizzas, pastas, desserts, nothing on the menu that wasnt awesome, and trust me, we tried almost everything there. In fact it hands down beats some of the cafes in Bangalore.

The Cafe was a first for me. Good food and right next to the rivulet. The staff is young and eager to serve. You might have to wait for a table. Try the burgers, trout and the mousse on a cookie. Good portions and evenly priced.

I don't know what is the hype around this place. It was nothing extra ordinary. In fact the food was horrible. We asked for pasta in white sauce and they brought it in red sauce and it tasted weird and horrible. Yes the seating is nice but what good is seating without good food. The pizza was kinda nice. Overall,... More

Namaste Thanks for taking the time and it is nice to know you liked our Pizza. Because of the Pasta you gave us 1/5 stars. That doesn't make sense, right! - Well you forgot to mention that you were told not to YELL inside the Cafe. I believe you are annoyed by the fact that your buffoonery was not allowed.... More

Ate lunch here with family. Quaint place with an outdoor seating as well overlooking the Beas. Food is good and so is the service. They should maintain the outside area better.
