It might not have been the best or cheapest meal in town but having lunch overseeing the Durbar Square is priceless. Add to this the very friendly service and you have a winning combination! Tip: order the Nepali lunch set (this is what the locals do)!

I ordered the Nepalese set meal and could barely finish it from the generous serving. While the dish's taste was good enough, I suspect I wouldn't have enjoyed it half as much had I not been hungry from a day's worth of walking and touring and missing lunch. The service was as fast as could be expected, considering the place... More

Where to begin... This was a dinner for twenty people from many different countries. We all provided our dinner selections a day in advance in order to make sure that the restaurant would be prepared. The meal was served on their roof. A nice touch, except by the time we arrived it was pitch black outside, Bhaktapur suffers with daily... More

We had breakfast here at Cafe D'Traditional and it was fabulous. What an amazing setting sitting on the roof we had a great view around Bhaktapur Square. Really tasty, authentic and good value, highly recommended.

The place is beautiful you will get to see panoramatic view of the ancient palace. We climbed up the steps and went to the medium sized cottage of the hotel. We didn't ordered much just 4 plates of chowmein and some coldrinks and frenchfries. Chowmein didn't taste so good but was fine to go with our hunger and french fries... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the fact that they have seats in a terrace overlooking the Durbar Square. After all the walking, you can sit for a while over a beer or coffee looking at Durbar Square and whats going on there while resting your tired legs. The meal was just about ok but we enjoyed the king... More

Great view over Dattatreya Square, food (Nepali set of course!) and service we're ok, BUT massively overpriced- at least twice the price you'd pay pretty much anywhere else in Nepal for a set menu! We won't be going back there- saving our precious pennies and supporting more reasonably priced vendors!

We had hired a local guide for a two hour city tour and at the end mentioned we wanted to lunch so he took us to this place which while well located, has the same (well thumbed and stained) excedingly simple menu found at trekking lodges (pancake, dal bhat, fried rice, noodle soup etc). The only difference is the price-... More

We reached Bhaktapur around lunch time so we decided to take lunch before exploring the square. This place is first on your right hand side as you enter the square. There is some open area covered on two sides with bamboo, we decided to try this place and enjoy the weather as well as view of square. We ordered nepali... More
