Around Durbar Square there are several restaurants, but this one maybe has the best views in all the square. Good Nepalese food, maybe a little crowded but once you get a table in the roof-top terrace you´re in heaven (even with Monsoon rain).
I will not suggest anyone to visit this place just for eating. This place is not recommended at all. It was our second day in Nepal and after visiting Patan it was 4.30 in the afternoon all of us were very hungry. We were highly tempted by the look of the Restaurant just infront of the Durbar Square, it was built in the pattern of the Royal Palace with a great view of the square. We asked the manager what we should try, pat came the reply Nepali style Rice and Chicken curry( See Photo). Well we had to struggle to find out where the chicken pieces were. Except for some shreads there was nothing. The bowl was full of gravy. We had to settle for that as we were very hungry. Then came the shock, the bill, we had to shell our Rs.950/ in Indian currency- or about USD$ 25, for this food, which normally would cost about half the price in any better restaurant in Kathmandu. We simply had the rice with gravy and a bottle of beer for about Rs225/ or USD 4. In Kathmandu you can have a sumptuous meal for less than 6-8USD per person. We felt cheated. There was also no water or soap in their toilet and it was very dirty. I will not recommend this place to anyone, neither will I visit there again.
Favorite Dish: Nothing!!
In the Durbar Square area there are a lot of restautrants and Bar.
Sometimes is very nice to take an hour just for yourself, forget about the temples and the history, and have a relax drink some cool drinks.
This is a nice and tipical backpacker activity everywhere you are, but, how can you resist then, if the place you choose allow you to have such amazing and so impressive views on the Square????
This place has tables overlooking Darbar square. We wnet here because we needed an urgent pit stop and made a great tea and snacks time out of it.
This roof-top terrace on the fifth floor allows bird’s eye views over the Patan durbar square, from is southern corner.
Favorite Dish: They also have wine, 100% drinkable!
