The hotel provided us with local cuisine and hearty breakfasts every day. They also made us a fantastic lasagna on our last night in Bhaktapur. The food was always fantastic and we all fell in love with the green chili sauce!

Very average food (not bad, but nothing really special). Probably, we just expected too much from the place run by Italian and being ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. The prices are on the high side (mains ab Rs400 + tax). Nice interior and garden inside the...More
