“Excellent food but overrated facility”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Pizza and sandwiches at Mapro Garden were excellent but ambience and cleanilness was not so good. Location is very convenient as it is on the way when travelling from Pune to Mahabaleshwar. Hospitality of the staff is ok. Bit overpriced for what they offer.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

So many things that you would like here.....
Do make it a point to try the strawberry and cream with ice cream...the portions are super huge....call it a meal by itself...:)
The pizzas and sandwiches are also very good.....! :)
Try everything once at least. :)

“A popular hence crowded place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

A fairly large area including strawberry fields, a fish pond, a landscaped garden, two restaurants (one partly open, another in a hot house like structure), a chocolate factory, outlets selling Mapro's products (including the Mazanna chocolates), it is popular place indeed- especially with large groups and school children.

Over the weekends, school holidays and other popular holidays, the restaurants have a tough time catering to the orders. Sometimes get mixed up or delayed inordinately. So do follow up.

For the open air dining area, you have to buy coupons first - the coupon counter right near the entry gate is very crowded because not many realise there is another counter on the other end (near the chocolate factory end). The menu is fairly extensive, food items a tad costly (Corn Pizza @ Rs 399), classic sandwich @Rs 144; we got a bottle of water free with our order) but the portions are large. So do order in moderation, you can always order for more later. As anybody will say, the fresh cream and strawberry' combo is the biggest hit.

“Its about the place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I started going to Mapro couple of years back. I say started, because i go there mostly with family, couple of time in a month. or atleast once a month. Food tests same as i went for the first time when i was in college, 4/5 years ago. And my opinion has never changed since; its a average food sold at very high price. The club sandwich, served with fries is good, pizza is average. A large pizza and sandwich would cost you 700/- rs; which is a lot. We finish our brunch with hot-brownie which is again tastes like any other place.

The best part which makes me want to go there is the atmosphere, cool breeze, smell of freshly backed pizza and ghat (pasarani ghat) which leads to Mapro. Although there is nothing for kids to play around apart from a small size trampoline. But still even my kid enjoys being there. Place has a Mapro shop selling all kinds of jelly's, crush & lots of things which Mapro makes. The restaurant is extended through the back of this shop facing a pond which might have lotuses sometime in past. But its good, specially it doesn't spread bad odor & mosquitoes.

The place is worth visiting once, following trips, if any would solely depend upon your taste.

“Excellent but way too OVERPRICED”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

A nice place and the food is pretty decent, but a tad overpriced for a fast food joint. Straweberries is what defines this place and they serve amazing ice creams. They also have their own oven baked pizzas which were decent. If in Mahabaleshwar one meal has to be taken here.
