All the food was really excellent but I feel like writing poetry in praise of the naans! And the Himalayan rainbow trout was very gentle cooked in a manner which brings out the flavours. The outside seating is lovely!

I would have given it a zero star if there was an option to do so..i visited with my family and the experience was awful ..the food tasted so bad and felt like I was an eating from a cheap roadside joint..no ambience just overhyped..the...biggest letdown was the service. The staff there seemed like they are doing you favours by bringing food to your table..i ordered two dishes which were to be eaten simultaneously but they brought them separately after 15 mins when the first one had gone cold ..taste was awful ..never go there..there areuch better options in manaliMore

This is easily one of the best places in Manali to dine at. The burger is to die for and the ambience is better than any place. It's perfect for an intimate family outing or a romantic dinner. Do visit!

We had a wonderful lunch here. I especially enjoyed their baked zucchini dish. It is simply superb. Their pastas are also good and they have a wood fired oven for pizzas also

Have visited with family with high expectation reading loads of reviews and my review as follows Ambience: Very pleasant Drinks: Very expensive Food: Expensive and taste below average. I don't think it's worth visiting if you are looking for good tasty Italian food with price...at par please visit adjoining restaurant Johnson Cafe instead.More

Extremely beautiful ambience & vibes. The staff present, especially sushil & sonam, provided smooth hospitality. Not a day of regret during my 2 months of stay in Manali. Would definitely love to visit again 🥂
