We ordered Chicken Tortilla Soup, Chicken Fajita and Spaghetti Al Arrabiatta. To our delight, soup was very tasty. Fajita was just an average dish. However, spaghetti was the biggest disappointment. The red sauce was extremely HOT and tasted of nothing but chillies. We could not complete even half of this dish. Definitely not value for money.

Me and my friends went to cafe sol for a bday celebration . The ambience of the place is grt bt the food was below our expectations. Me n my friends regularly visits cafe sol. The best they do have is the French onion soup,devils own and their pizzas.The staff is courteous. Overall one of the best cafes in shimla..

Great pizzas. Efficient service. Cafe sol has an exhaustive menu and offers a wide range of continental food. Their bakery is visible so makes it interesting to see how quickly they churn out baked food.

The Cafe serves ultimate Continental food, one of the best in town. It is centally located on The Mall, very close to te HPTDC Lift. They have a fully equipped bar. The cafe is always full to it's capacity, owing to the yummilicious food they serve, along with the great view.

We sent to Shimla for a holiday with friends, and on one evening visited this place. They serve excellent alcohol, they don't have sangrias on the Menu but if u ask for it, they serve excellent sangrias also.

Food was excellent along with speedy service. The ambiance is breathtaking. PS:don't order the dessert in the menu. It's not up to the mark.

Good food. Nice place to sit right on the mall. Very lively in the evenings and they have super desserts. It's also the perfect place to send a lazy weekend afternoon :)
