Cafe Chica has a very detailed menu but whatever we ordered was yummy! Special shout out to pasta aglio oglio peperoncino and the pea soup! And the croissants were also super. Sitting out in the sun and eating great food with great service is a...treat and it all happens at Cafe Chica!More

Cafe Chicca is set on beautiful sunny lawns serving up great spagetti alio oglio and stuffed croissants. The apple crumble is also excellent. Highly recommended!

The cafe is in a quaint area just above Nainital, and (being at a height) offers a lovely view of the area. It's got an open area that's quiet and serene, and offers brilliant continental food. The chicken roast and croissants are a must. All...in all the place gives you a great dining experience.More

People not staying are asked to stay kn corner. We had lots of expectation with the view but left without ordering because we were asked to sit in a corner allocated for those who are not staying hotel...

Perched above Nainital it is an easy 5 minute drive from the mall. Parking is available on site. Lovely garden setting with a homely atmosphere. The menu is limited but food delicious to eat. Have visited several times and in fact a perfect pit stop...for lunch when driving from Delhi to RanikhetMore

I visit Cafe Chica every time we visit Nainital. Some days I make a trip specially from Bhimtal only to have their food! The Fish, the burger, pizza, pasta and the salads are my favourites. The food is very very fresh and some ingredients come...from the trees growing in the compound itself. I have never had such fresh walnuts that were included in the salad on my last visit. The ambience is wonderful! It’s so relaxing to hear the sound of the birds and the soft wind while you enjoy the view and the food. The grass is always green and the trees around are beautiful! Sets the perfect tone for a relaxing meal. The owner and the manager both are so kind and wonderful. The service is exceptional. Do visit this place and enjoy a beautiful fresh and delicious meal or drink at this fine place! Highly recommend. Waiting to visit Cafe Chica soon againMore

The best continental food with amazing views and atmosphere in Nainital!! Totally unexpected in the hills!! It’s like having city food in a gorgeous atmosphere. Reminded us of restaurants in Scotland!

The ambience of the cafe in unbeatable. The view is just amazing. The veg burger, fries, aglio olio pasta, cheese bake are some of the best dishes among other delicious dishes. It is definitely the best outdoor cafe in Nainital.
