While it isn't all that bad, the Vaatika cafe is definitely not worth the glowing review LP gave it. My boyfriend and I stopped in for lunch in late November 2011 and ordered a pizza each, fresh juices and a piece of the apple pie....More

Excellent outdoor cafe with attentive service. We enjoyed the thin crust pizza very much. Make sure you save room for the apple pie, was wonderful!

After reading reviews on TA and Rough Guide decided to try this restaurant right at Assi Ghat. Great location, that's about it. Pizza was very disappointing and other food was average. Haifa Restaurant was a much better option.

If you do nothing else in Varanasi then you must come here. The best pizza I have had since Italy 40 years ago. The apple pie and ice cream were well worth a repeat visit. We had to keep going back because there were so...More
