“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

The pizzas were fantastic, and good value too. There were more flies walking in than anywhere else I've ever eaten though which was nearly enough to put us off, but i'm glad we stayed! Avoid the toilet if possible, it was worse than the ones on the trains!

“My #1 reasons for coming to Benares”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

When in Benares eat Pizza and Apple Pie. Honestly, this little place on a quiet ghat is the perfect setting for what is possibly the best pizza in the sub-continent and definitely THE best apple pie this side of the Suez Canal. And the bill will make you want to cry. It's criminal that such good food costs so little

“Great place to watch Assi Ghat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

We ate at Vaatika Cafe twice during our short stay in Varanasi. The pizza was good and a nice break from Indian fare, and the apple pie was delicious! The cafe overlooks Assi Ghat, and is a good place to sit and watch the activity on the Ganges. The service was great as was the value!

“Great pizza... Even better apple pie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We ate here twice in Varanasi. The pizza was nice, the base is thin style and the sauce is the closest I have had to pizza sauce from home!

The apple pie with ice cream is definitely the highlight!!

Note: It is quite noisy at the restaurant- due to the ceremony taking place at the Assi Gaht down stairs.
