My wife and I had a pleasant lunch at the cafe. The Himalayan trout was fresh, and grilled just right. My wife opted for a vegetarian pasta which was professionally done. The menu range was impressive, as also the liquor list. The staff was a little lackadaisical, but the wood panelling decor and the food quality made up for it.

You don't live upto your rate card and perhaps you don't have the word "courtesy " in your dictionary. Ambience is the only reason am rating you here . Poor service . If you don't wanna spoil your trip then avoid this junk place

I would not recommend this place to solo travellers as in the people there are not welcoming and show partial treatment. I even had to pay my bill at the counter. Nobody bothers if you're solo. They look at you suspiciously.Definiyely a good place for family, foreigners and a group of friends. The cafe is of elite class.

The ambience is excellent; take my word for it. But the service is lacking and the food is not value for money either. So for me its average.
