I had the good fortune to be staying just round the corner from Vesper so ate there pretty much every day for about three weeks (most days for lunch and dinner). I tried everything on the menu and found all of the meals to be tasty, freshly-prepared, and beautifully presented. The service was friendly and efficient and the young owner/managers... More

This is the nicest ambiance and best pizza/pasta I have found in Nepal.The wine is decent which means one glass costs about the same as a dish but for a treat with a friend this is the place for me. Its like stepping into a relaxed and easy European bubble for an hour or two, and off the streets of... More

The pizza , garlic spaghetti and momoms and everything tasted bland.. some improvements can be done to satisfy local tastes as... More

When you approach vesper, you really want to eat there - it looks beautiful and is a comfortable place to eat. We enjoyed two HUGE pizzas! And although they were pricey, for me it was a second meal :D They have an extensive wine list and great quality service. We enjoyed eating here.

Vesper is one of my favorite places to frequent when in Kathmandu! I've been here on a date with my husband and brought friends here as well! This is the ONLY place to have a really good burger in KTM. It is even better than gourmet burgers I've had in the States. And their fries and dipping sauce are wonderful.... More

Lovely place to catch up with old friends! Good food and wine, relaxed ambience, and nice staff. Unfortunately the kitchen was having issues the night we went, so it took quite a while for all of the orders to reach the table. A good excuse for another glass of wine!

We were there for lunch, and even though there were only 2 other tables, it took them over an hour to serve our mains. Basic pasta. Others coming after us got served before us. Not sure if I'll come back. Probably nice for drinks in the evening as good ambiance.

Thank Raanz_11
