When the sun sets, the lakeside of Pokhara awakes, to mesmerize you in its aura. Along with the pristine scenery of Fewa Lake and the magnificent Himalayas, this lively area will surely delight you. The pubs, restaurants, discos, bars, hotels and so on are the perfect hubs to relax with the array of good music and mouthwatering delicacies.
After some adrenaline rush or exploring exotic places nestled in the lap of this idyll, I always look for a good place to relax, to release my fatigue and treat my appetite. The presented lakeside restaurants seem perfect to me for the occasion.
Pokhara Beach Club (PBC)
Sedi Height, Lakeside Road, Pokhara, Nepal
Phone No. – 9815155343
I never miss to visit this restaurant at Pokhara Beach Club & Resort, whenever I go to Pokhara. With a great and tranquil view, it is a great place in to chill. Setting is just fantastic and so is its service. The owners, Steven and Preety, are quite friendly. The dishes which you get here are of truly international standard. I am ‘the’ big fan of Boar Burgers here. Can you believe me, once, I ordered 3 Boar Burgers one after another because it was simply awesome! Besides this, other barbequed items of its menu are equally tasty.

Lakeside 6, Pokhara, Nepal
Phone No.- 061461301, 977-61-461301
I happened to visit this restaurant last year, when I went to Pokhara with my college friends. After a tiring hike to Peace Pagoda, we stopped here for the lunch. On the recommendation of the waiter, I tried Pepper Steak (the dish that is served with fries, pepper sauce and steamed veggies) and my friends tried the strange dish called Nasi Goreng Pattaya (fried rice stuffed inside omelet pouch). Both dishes were new to us but we liked them. I would love to visit this restaurant again during my next visit to Pokhara.
If you crave for Malaysian and French cuisines, do visit this restaurant. With great cuisines, you can adore the beauty of Fewa Lake and also enjoy the WIFI facilities. It has sitting arrangement both indoors and outdoors. The hospitality is simply great.

Lakeside East, Gaurighat, Pokhara, Nepal

If you want to taste Italian during your visit to Pokhara, this is the place where you should be. This is the restaurant where you can get almost all famous Italian dishes- Pizza, Pasta, Cappuccino, Pesto, Ravioli, Risotto, Bruschettas, Chicken Saltimbocca and many more. Whenever I want to take a bite of Pizza, this is the first place that comes to my mind.
Established in 1969, it is a hallmark of Lakeside. I highly recommend you to visit this place, to spend your evening with Jazz music, beside warm Patio fire and of course, how can I miss, the hot Cappuccino. Though this place is spacious, you will find it always crowded as it is quite popular. The combination of rustic features and modern design make the ambience cozy and lovely. Best place to experience Italy in Nepal!

Lanhua Chinese Restaurant
Gaurighat, Lakeside, Nepal
Phone No. – 061-463797
I got tempted to visit this place, when my friend mentioned about it in one of our conversations. So, I went there and to my pleasant surprise, I received a warm welcome. They greeted me with Ni Hao (Hello in Chinese) and I have to say, their prompt and excellent service, pretty much impressed me! Within 10 minutes of placing the order, the Nepali waiter who could speak little Chinese brought this sweet and sour pork. The delightful aroma was self sufficient to content me. Not just the service, the food was also great. Every single bite was heavenly. Two thumbs up for quick service, nice hospitality, authentic Chinese atmosphere, good value of money and of course for the super tasty food.
I highly recommend this place for Chinese food lovers. It surely seems to gain more popularity in the days to come!

Am/ Pm Organic Cafe

Phone No. 061466339
How about starting your day with hot coffee and good music when you are in Pokhara? If you like my idea, I recommend you this tiny café called AM/ PM organic café. The café is costlier than other places but the coffee and pastries you get here is damn good. They do not serve many dishes but whatever they serve is of high quality. The atmosphere over here has awesome vibe because the staffs and the owner, David, all are friendly. So, enjoy your coffee with free WIFI in the best coffee house of Pokhara!
