Reviewed yesterday NEW

At the end of a tiring day, a well prepared cocktail / drink and finely cooked cuisine helps complete a holiday well. The sangria (red wine) was really well made. The pizza and also the grilled Trout deserve a mention. Tasteful decor and good music just added to the ambience

Went to Manali to meet my friends and went to this and lace for evening drinks on there recommendation. Ambience is good, service was ok as well, but menu pricing was slightly high as compared ed to other bars in the city. We probably go back again because of the location and ambience.

This review is pending since long. I went there with friends in May 2016. I would say its a great place to taste variety of manali food. Bit pricey, maybe because of the tourists who flock Manali. open through out the day so you can drop in anytime for a fulfilling a hunger.

So we went there again on the last day of our trip to find the pricing of the same item hiked steeply! People should be AWARE of what goes on in the name of season in such places. Never saw... More
