I was amazed to find this place in manali..its a nice garden cafe with comforting ambience and the food here is just outstanding. I love the trout here and enjoyed all the dishes i tried, the pizzas here are really good too.
Great place with good music to have food in Manali.

“Manali's Must-Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

Every meal in Manali should be eaten here!
The fresh trout, the wood-oven baked pizzas, the apple toddy, the apple & riccola salad, the soups, aaaaah! It's all freshly cooked, served with a dash of cheer and is simply divine on the good ol' taste buds!
And just to make sure you're close to this gastric nirvana - check into Jimmy Johnson's Lodge that shares the same compound.
A family-run establishment - the Johnsons really know their hospitality fundas and will have you returning for more & more!

“The one palce to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

Sweet little place with a nice ambiance. A big relief from the tacky market in town.
The locally caught baked trout was unbelievable and I have never had a better apple crumble anywhere else in the world. ( incidentally they grow their own apples).
