The food and the service was upto the mark. We had trout, lamb and spaghetti. The location and the ambience is very optimum. The staff is young and eager to serve. A must visit place for a relaxed and delicious meal.

This is such a well maintained property which lies on the Hadimba temple road. The beauty of the hotel will draw you inside. Nice place to catch up on a couple of pegs. Not very cheap though, but the place is worth it. Nice food and good service
