During our recent stay at Abbotsford, we had the opportunity to have a couple of meals at Cafe Chica. The setting is dramatic, al fresco surrounded by the greenery of the estate, against the backdrop of the hills on all sides. The food matches in...quality and taste the expectations one has of the setting itself. We mostly tried the continental offerings and enjoyed all of what we tried. Equally enjoyable were the coffees on offer. If in Nainital, highly recommend visiting Cafe Chica for a meal- the view and the food make for a remarkable experience.More

If hospitality is the name of the game, this property is possibly the best ever. The ever helpful staff, especially Rohit, was just what we needed as we wanted to unwind in a beautiful hotel post the Covid lockdown. Infact the day i reached, i...felt a little sick due to mountain sickness but the staff just went out of its way to ensure i felt good. The lovely gardens were my daily morning meditation spots and yes the perfect morning breakfasts:)) A big thank you to all the staff for looking after us. I miss the breakfasts already!!More

I am appalled at the lack of warmth and the sheer level of how anyone can be rude in the hospitality business. After calling and making a visit, the lady in charge was a full tyrant from the word go. We were still getting off...the vehicle when she started with instructions on how the parking should be somewhere else. Mind you, we were still just opening doors. Then when my father asked to visit washroom he was told point blank that indoors were off limits. He had to walk some strange trek to go ease himself. Something that claims to encourage pets at the property, was such an eye wash. We were given a lonesome corner and told to not be on the grass. There were 2 people dining in an otherwise tiny garden anyways. We politely left. But felt small and terrible at having taken to pains to research and travel a long distance just for a cup of coffee. Seems like all other reviews are paid. Trust me, she also refused my father when he said he wanted to see rooms. We were hopeful to book on our second trip. Now, with folded hands, a big no no. In the hospitality business, if you can’t get these things right, you need to shut shopMore

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
