Our small group of travelers stayed at the Clafouti Hotel for a week, so naturally ate here on numerous occasions! Many great dishes, wonderful Nepalese staff, a relaxing, welcoming and fun venue morning til night.

The food was great and the breakfast was excellent. Good value for money. The only downside was that they used tea bags just like most places on the cliff. This is weird since kerala has its own tea growing in munnar. The Staff was great...More
