“Favorite restaurant in UB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

We have enjoyed going to veranda for lunch or dinner in fall, winter,or spring. The ambiance is so comfortable, the wide menu, large wine list and friendly service are great. It is my favorite restaurant in UB and is conveniently located near Chinggis Khan square and State department. We go there with friends often. In the summer and fall sitting out on the veranda and looking at the view from the Monestary to the Blue sky is so relaxing and quite a juxtaposition. Well worth a stop if you are only there for a short while or staying longer.

“So charming,much a colonial expat hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Good food, gorgeous verandah overlooking one of the few remaining monastery compounds ( not sure if there are still monks there though- I think not). Service is good but can be very slow at peak times ( which seems to be most of the time - at least in the summer months). Better to book in advance or you might be seated in the enclosed verandah on the left as you come upstairs which is a bit claustrophobic. The restaurant is vey European/ California. A bit of a relief after living in gers in the countryside. Avoid the carrot bread - it really is odd.

“Nice place in central UB, with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This place has a good variety of food and drinks, both Mongolian and Western, and is handily located in central UB. Busy at lunch time with local business people, as well as a few tourists.

“Italian food....a long way from Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

You are eating Italian food in Mongolia, its not going to taste like the food in Italy. That said, Italian is an often copied cuisine and this place doesn't do a bad job of it. The Spaghetti bolognase was very tasty but the beef kebab (not Italian obviously...) was fairly average. Wait staff were excellent however.

“Lunch with atmosphere and good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Steak Milan was tender, moist and delicious. The vegetarian Panini was equally delicious. The service was good. The restaurant seemed to be a jet-setter, cosmopolitan popular spot. Well spoken, dressed, French, Germans, Mongolians and Americans.
Delicious. Easy to find South of the Blue Sky hotel.
