“Nice view overlooking the Ganges.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Refreshing drinks and a nice view, the owner comes out herself to take your order.

She is friendly.

For a real Indian experience, go at sunset to the upstairs balcony... for the swarm of buzzing insects and families of geckos that surround them. Nice place all round.

Our visit at Assi Ghat turned fruitful when we found this small cozy restaurant. The family that runs the Restaurant were very nice and sweet. The food quality served was also very good. We had a lovely time.

We would like to say thank you to Julie and Baboo for good hospitality service at The Festive Villa.
We were in Varasari for 4 days and we had meals here every days ,breakfast, lunch and dinner . We were thinking that we would like to try somewhere else but NO because The Festive have a good food, seasonable price,excellent service, free wifi and the restaurant has a beautiful view faces to Assi ghat. We would really recommended this restaurant..
