My colleague and i ended a work trip in Kangra by debriefing at Cliffy's. Just entering the place made us pause and take notice of the beauty around. There is something inviting about the way it has been designed/ set up. Nestled away but accessible....Natural yet modern. Only positive vibes all around. Above this, the food and drinks were delicious :) and at reasonable prices for the location. All in all, came away satisfied, happy and inspired ! :)More

Mouthwatering food, amazing service, excellent ambience. Very beautifully done up inside. Outdoor seating is amidst pine trees on log benches. You can spend hours enjoying the food and beverages.

Was excited given its amongst the top rated on trip advisor. But was a let down: 1. The South Indian was very average. Sambhar could have been more authentic, chutney hardly had coconut and was just water, the dosas and utthpam were 9on the raw...side. The fried idles which are supposed to crisp were made soggy and dowsed onion tomato garnish. The utthapam had hardly any onion despite explicitly for the same. Pasta was horrendous!! I guess, the reason this is popular is because of lack of choice in a hill station. Avoidable unless one wants a change of taste to someone that tasted a little like south india .More

The ambience of this place is awesome - it is a rustic, pretty place located amidst lush green surroundings in Palampur. It is a bit away from the main crowded area and hence is much better. It has a lovely books and music corner with...guitar & a couple other things. We had dosas, panniyaram, cold coffee, filter coffee and brownie with ice-cream. Everything was good. Service was pretty quick. Overall lovely experience and would highly recommend thisMore

A super cosy place with authentic South Indian fare! The food was superlative. Everything we ordered was fresh, very tasteful, and was served piping hot. The South Indian items were authentic. The place was buzzing with light banter from a bunch of friends at one...corner, the breezy music playing in the background, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, some authentic food… everything that gives you a positive vibe! We decided to sit outside and enjoy the crisp mountain air. We were suitably hungry. I ordered a couple of sides and a couple of things from the South Indian choices. Umang decided to go with only South Indian. The chicken popcorn was crisp, juicy, and had the perfect seasoning. The dosas, podis, idlis, sambhars and most of all the chutneys were perfect. The best however was the Kheema Dosa - a must eat at Cliffy’s. I simply loved the whole peppercorn in the filling. It elevated the flavours and the texture to another level. The husband - wife duo who own the place and we had the opportunity to interact with them briefly, bring that right dash of intimacy to the place.More

Nestled in dense greenery this beautiful mountain cafe is a gem of a find! Surrounded by a well maintained garden, the cozy cafe offers good food, ambiance and books. One may choose to sit either indoors or outdoors, electing to read, work or just unwind....The washroom is blessedly clean and the owner/staff very courteous. Palampur may not have much to offer, but those who find themselves here, this place is a wonderful refuge. Must visit!More
