Firstly, spotted it on my map, saw cafe, thought coffee went there, doesn't open until 6pm. Not entirely their fault.

Went back at 7 having read reviews here. Don't know if it was an off night but had the following experience:

We only have pasta or ravioli tonight, from an already small menu. We weren't going to open, I was told. Fine, we'll both have the ravioli. Hang on, went to kitchen, there is only one ravioli portion, but we can do the Arabian platter. Ok, one ravioli and one Arabian platter. We were first of 3 people in there to order, it somehow came out last and an hour after ordering it. The ravioli was good, but don't know how it took an hour. My wife's Arabian platter came out minus the main event humus, yeah we didn't have humus, I'll give you a discount. Had she known, she would have ordered pasta. Again, struggle to see how it took an hour for a pita bread, a fried egg (burned somehow) and a chopped onion salad to come out.

To top it off, when we tried to leave it seems we'd been locked in, gate padlocked. I assume they'd sold all of the food they had left and decided to close anyway- with us still in the bar!

Nice looking bar, recommend going for a beer, nice looking venue, good music. Entertaining if nothing else!

Gatty's Café is a small informal place where travellers from various parts of the world come over to catch up on their fellow mates. It offers some great views, music & food. The only thing is the place really warms up a bit late in the evening so best advise is to drop in after 7

A small cool place in central Darjeeling. I came here for a beer. It has a cool vibe and a good place to hang out.

I visited this cafe on a cold December evening. I was the first customer and they were still setting up. The owner was very nice and had an amazing playlist. Guests arrived through the night and left. The design of the place allows for interaction with other travelers. The food was up to the mark. Music and ambience are to die for.

Visited here with Chris, Elaine and the Irish crew that travelled here on motorcycles from. Siliguri, fab atmosphere and service from the staff including Catherine and Gatty, spotlessly clean and great music.
