I've been in Nepal for over two months, and just came across this hidden gem. It's truly the best restaurant I've been to in Nepal, and rivals some of the better restaurants I've been to elsewhere! The food is delicious, and the service is impeccable. The value for the food makes it even better. This place is not to be... More

A long-time Kathmandu establishment, Chez Caroline has a diverse menu of continental-style dishes. The Tournedos of beef in a Roqueforte sauce is delish, as is the seasonal grilled calamari salad (on a bed of arugula with shaved parmesan). The quiche is a great option for lunch with ample salads. The homemade basil lemongrass sorbet is a lovely way to top... More

The setting is awesome, based in an old yet completely restored building/courtyard. The menu offers a very large selection of authentic French dishes. From starters to main courses and deserts. The selection goes well beyond your standard soup/fish/sweets, and includes various quiches, cold cuts, crepes, classical deserts and the list goes on. There must have been at least 25 choices...

Chez Caroline is one of the best restaurant in town manged by French lady " Caroline" The place is beautiful, the food they serve is of high quality and tasty. I specially liked " Spinach Soup" . Its bit too pricey though as per average standard.
