The dishes also we had - pizza and lasagna and hot chocolate were also not great. So we went with lot of expectations but it dint turn out to be that... More

I saw the good reviews and visited the place in my recent stay in old Manali. Ambience is no doubt excellent with river side view, but somehow I was not able to connect to other users views about the food.

Cafe 1947 is less about being just a restaurant that serves you good food, but more of an experience that'll make you come here over and over again. Good food, good people, good vibes.

If you are hoping to chill with your friends and have a good talk this is your place. It is an upbeat place and food is nice. I however was looking for a quiet place in Manali. And was taken off by the noise. Go for the food though!
