One of the best restaurants within our 23 days in Rajasthan, no doubt. Very good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. Don´t miss "Monica" if you are in Jaisalmer looking for veg and non-veg indian food. The restaurant is situated near the fort but the entrance (the staircase) is not easy to find, just ask someone.

It is located across from the textile cooperative and outside the second gate of the fort. Went with a group of 16 - we enjoyed Indian, Continental, ice cream and cold beer while enjoying the breeze and views. A great break from the craziness.

This place is conveniently situated just outside the front of the fort and easy to find. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was nice but as I say, not blown away. Also the place was lacking atmosphere, maybe because it was mid afternoon and there were no customers, no music and not much decor.

Got a Rastathanian thali which includes a variety of dishes. Some treated delicious while I find other sour, but I am glad I tried them all. Overall, a nice meal.

The food was good. Recommended by a local to come here. Not much of a view but great if all you are is hungry.

Maybe we were unlucky, but the food we had wasn't really good......both my husband and I weren't sure that what we were served was actually chicken.

We arrived in Jaisalmer late afternoon and after a bit of exploring, decided that it was time to find a bite. Monica's is near the front gate of the fort and a short distance from our hotel, so we decided to give it a try. We climbed to the third floor and took a table outside on the terrace, directly...

Since we stayed in a motel, so we were wondering as to where we can find a restaurant with good non veg food as most of the restaurants were veg in Jaisalmer...so finally somebody suggested Monica restaurant. As we went there & tasted the food it was excellent & they served beer too, so it solved both of our purposes.... More
