La Plage

French in Manali

This decadent summer-only outpost of a chic Goan eatery serves French standards, like onion soup or mushroom quiche. You can also try specialities like overnight-cooked lamb, smoked trout, broccoli-and-courgette lasagne and an indulgent chocolate thali as dessert. Decent Indian and international wines, too.

It's in a peaceful spot, 1km from Old Manali bridge, surrounded by apple orchards.
