Great view of the Ganges and Laxman Jhula. The ambience created is too good. Good soulful music. Hats off to the Dais and other boys who work there. Very humble, unlike other cafes in Manali, Kasol, Goa etc.. The food was very good, special mention...to the presentation of each and every dish. We tried, Italian- Pasta and Gnocchi. Chinese- Black Mushroom Noodles and American Chopsey Continental- Sizzler, Burger and Pancake. Everything was up to the mark. Will surely visit again.More

It’s not easy to locate this place - so ask around as Google maps can be misleading. When you climb the stairs and enter this place the first thought is - was it worth driving so much ? Howver as you are seated and you...start enjoying the view and the vibe of this place you feel it was worth it. The food was fine - nothing to shout out . We loved the momos and the veggies pizza . Sizzler was okay . Service was good and staff was friendly and courteous. Music was very good. Overall we had a good time. When you do have the time the chill come here for lunch or a sundowner.More

This place is amazing when it comes t view. Everything else is jus beneath below average. Ambience is super dark, bad lighting. The service is as bad as u can imagine it to be. We were served soup and starter within fifteen minutes. Both was...cold. The food, one plate of sizzler took 50 minutes to arrive after that. On asking multiple times the status this is what the staff had to stay “if u can’t wait, leave.” Not exaggerating, this is what was told to us. So we shut up and sat and had an overrated sizzler and left. Avoid this cafe. Try the one to next to it, to the right. Same view, courteous staff and the food five stars ⭐️More

Only veg options are there, thats a bit disappointing, however, taste is awsome, momos were great, little on a expensive side but worth the experience.

Love the staff's hospitality and view from this cafe. Though its a little tricky getting seats but its worth the wait.

With all the amazinnng reviews online, I was kind if disappointed with this place. The asthetics are average, a simple raw shack looking place with a long window (rather than an open space) views of Ganga and laxman julha. Again only three tables that get...the view, so if you don't grab one of them, there is nothing special about the place. I called for an avocado on toast which was okay. The guac was not seasoned and it was served on a this fat hot dog bread with fries and unseasoned salad. Juice was great and while the Cappuccino looked fine, it was very thin and the foam disappeared within minutes making it a filter coffee. Given cafes like Freedom cafe and Ganga view cafe in the same vicinity, you can give this a miss.More

One of the most spectacularly located dining place full of life, wind, good food and music banked on the ganges near Laxman jhoola. Not to miss at night! Prebook the table at the end of the cafe for ganga view and fresh air !!!

I had to leave after having seated when I asked the waiter if they accepted UPI or cards. I find it difficult to believe that such a busy place doesn't have the capability to handle digital payments. I thought I would let the manager/owner know...if the staffs were doing anything shady behind their back.More

I don't know on what basis it got so any stars. Food was terrible. Entire place is so cramped that there is no place to sit comfortably. They have table fans with wires going everywhere and waiters move around like a two wheeler in south...Delhi traffic. Every order comes after 40-45 mins, that too if they go beyond serving the rickety foreigners. Then, we got a sizzler which was not sizzling, a honey chilly potato which was nether crunchy not had a teste other than the sauce, the famous Falafel was another nonsense, only the hummus wasn't aged like other stuff on the plate. Then we tried some Indian items, which were a shade better though I can make better dal in my house then they did. The entire place is hot as hell and washrooms are stinking. So please save yourself from this place.More

Do have an open mind when ordering from the cafes/restaurants as at times they have their version... ask if you must. Menu selection will be the same for most restaurants too and ALL VEGETARIAN. This cafe has a good view... More
