After refreshing sacred dip in Holy Ganges,we went to this charming restaurant. Located on the banks of the flowing river,at an elevated place, overlooking iconic Laxman Jhoola, this is a fantastic place to explore variety of cuisine,freshly made by dedicated chef, natural hospitality, youthful ambience,...free from crowds. The pastries and fruit punch is added attraction. Not to be missed by those who want to enjoy solitude and serenity of this Himalayan temple town.More

Superb food, ordered the hummus sandwich, pakora platter, pizza and coffee. Pakora platter is a must try. Visited this cafe with family in feb 2022. It wasn't too crowded so got a good table with a beautiful view of the river ganga & lakshman jhula....Thoroughly enjoyed the meal !More

The food and place is amazing. Quaint cafe with quality and yummy food. No complaints. Service was great because there weren't many people. However beware since they're bit short-staffed if there's alot of people expect a delay in service. Our server Gopi ji were very...attentive and kind. We had Chinese, the Buddha bowl, paneer bhurji, burgers - and everything was top-notchMore

We were searching for a nice place to have food with great views and one of our friends suggested this place. It turned out to be an amazing place in terms of sunset views and we were thralled to be there. We got the first...table, across the Ganges and views from here were to die for. We felt like sitting in Europe with river views. For first 30 minutes we just devoured the sunset views and could not resist clicking best of the pictures. The food we ordered was undoubtedly very tasty, especially the Falafel platter. The decor was nice and relaxing. Generally people tend to go to the right side, after crossing Laxman Jhula but this Cafe is towards the left side and much better that other Hyped cafes like in terms of views, service and food. A must visit place !!More

We went here as this place has good views of the river, but once we ordered the first course, which was a hot and sour soup, things turned bad. This place uses AJINOMOTO (MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE) or better known as MSG. They also boasted that they...use this in all chinese dishes,& customers just want taste and do not care about health. Ajinomoto is a slow poison & banned in India. Maggi was banned for sometime due to Ajinomoto content. So eat somewhere else and live healthy and live long.More

Had once of the best meals here in Rishikesh! The food is way more better than some of those super popular cafes!! We had ordered for a pizza, chickpea veg cheese burger, pasta, tomato &cheese open grilled toast, very sandwich, cappuccino and Crunchy frappe. All...the food and the drinks were very delicious! Highly recommend going to this cafe for lunch/dinner plus the view!More

You have to visit Ganga View Cafe! The white washed walls, minimalist and classy decor will make you turn your camera on. There are three tables facing the river and getting those would be ideal. The cafe is usualy less crowded that it's competitor Freedom...cafe and so ideal for a visit. they play great music (usualy bwood soft songs) and have great food. I have tried their tofu gravy with rice, hummus pita and budha bowl salad, all excellent. Also, it is the best Cappuccino I have had in Rishikesh!More
