A view to remember

Just back from an absolute jewel of a restaurant in the city of lakes, Udaipur. Udaipur has some of the most beautiful lakes in the Rajasthan. Nestled amongst the densely packed old city on the eastern shore of Lake Pichola is the Jagat Niwas Palace, a heritage hotel. The roof top restuarant has panoromic views of the Lake Pichola, Jag Mandir and the Lake Palace Hotel. The fans of James Bond would remember that Octopussy was shot at the Lake Palace Hotel. The roof top restaurant is also in the shadows of the City Palace Museum.

We were at the Jagat Niwas roof top restaurant for dinner. Both the Jag Mandir and the Lake Palace Hotel were glistening, set against the dark waters of Lake Pichola. This certainly has to be one of the most romantic setting for a restaurant. The hotel itself is a 17th century haveli, restored to its former glory. I am sure I will be back to stay at the hotel.
