After walking around the fort for such long was nice to sit in this quaint little restaurant and enjoy their coffee and samosas. A bit pricy but for a change the ambience is very relaxing

Made inside of the gates to Ahilya Fort, this hotel is a quaint one where all rooms are unique and have their own style. Come to this place and relax for as long as you want. Live the countryside life. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to escape the city life.

Live in an old world. Classic! Tastefully done. Great food. There are rooms also available to stay. One must stay here. Next to Ahilya fort entry. Very close to ghats.

Seriously, whats the fuss about this place? They serve chai and samosa. In a garden with mosquitoes. Nothing else. Their attitude was even worse. May be that's how they treat Indians.

There are a few great rooms at this cafe, with good bathrooms, excellent showers, comfortable beds. It IS inside the fort and the ghats, the fortress and the ghat with the Shiva statues, the rental boats for the sunset cruises are all within walking distance. The staff is delightful, helpful and unintrusive. A real find in MP. DO stay here,... More

Just outside the Maheswar's Ahilya Fort, this age old structure gives that old world charm, Just sit around and have your hot tea or coffee listening to birds symphony as well as occasional noise from outside :)

Considering the fact, that there are hardly other restaurants in Maheswar, Laboos Cafe comes across as a good cafe. The food was definitely good for a small town like Maheshwar. Please don't go with "Big-City" expectations. The staff is courteous and friendly.
