Where to have a lunch in Jaipur after your cycle tour with Cyclin'Jaipur?
As a tourist in Jaipur, it can be hard to find a place for lunch that meets your expectations. The most popular restaurants mentioned in tourist guidebooks are not necessarily the best.
As we are Indian food lovers, but also French nostalgic of our cuisine, we have been trying a lot of places and here are the 6 we have selected for you to enjoy a lovely time and delicious meals at reasonable price:
1. OTH - On the House
Price range : ₹180 - ₹550 | Open from 8.30 am to 23 pm (alcoholic beverages not available)
This restaurant-brasserie is situated in the calm district of C-Scheme. It is one of the new places opening in Jaipur inspired by the western cuisine and way of life. Young workers, couples and families are found of this place and you will also meet some foreigners living in Jaipur who like to find their fresh baguettes and croissants.
We like the warm ambiance, the refined decoration, the terrace and the big sofas inside, on which you can spend hours sipping expresso coffees. Plug your computer, connect it to their wifi for free and order some pastries. They propose a large range of cakes (nutella cheese cake, carrot cake, opera, lemon tart, walnut tart... and so many treats that you must taste!). For your lunch you will find some fresh vegetarian and non-vegetarian products, delicious salads, pizzas (even with bacon!), pastas and many other marvels (take a look at the menu on their website).
(Approximate cost of a rickshaw drive from City Palace to OTH : ₹150)
2. Anokhi Cafe
Price range : ₹190 - ₹500 | Open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm (alcoholic beverages not available)
This cafe became an institution in Jaipur. It offers healthy and tasty fresh food made from seasonal organic produce grown locally at Anokhi farm. Don't miss the salads and the mascarpone cheesecake! That stop gives you also the opportunity to do some shopping in the Anokhi store that perpetuates the Rajasthan's tradition of hand block-printing.
3. Jaipur Modern Kitchen - Mediterranean and multicuisine
Price range : ₹444 - ₹761 | open from 11 am to 11 pm (alcoholic beverages not available)
Associated with organic farming initiatives, this is an Italian restaurant is doing proper Italian food. A joy for the travellers who miss the tastes of the true Italian cuisine. Pizzas, lasagnas and pastas are highly recommanded, special mention for the quinoa steak, a must try! Don't forget to visit the shop next door in which you can find the creations of Indian fashion designers: jewels, bags, scarves, clothes, wallets...

4. Bar Palladio

Considered as one of the best designed restaurants in India in the recent issue of Architectural Digest India, this bar restaurant is the best place to be for the traveller looking for a real break and some peace in Jaipur. The food is Italian and the cocktails are delightful. After lunch, in summertime, offer yourself a relaxing afternoon in the swimming pool of the in the Hotel Narain Niwas (entrance fees only ₹250!), and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the park, listening to the chant of the peacocks... Aaaaah, trust us, Jaipur would not be the same city without this oasis of peace and beauty...
Price range : ₹600 - ₹700 | Open for lunch and dinner (reservation is required)
Having a lunch on the roof top terrace of the Mosaic's guesthouse in Amber is an experience in itself. Book your table in advance and order your veg meal (about ₹600) or non-veg (about ₹700) and get a generous fresh lunch prepared by a skillful chef.
The menu depends on the products of the season and you will be offered several different Indian dishes cooked for the western palates : not spicy, not oily... A genuine delight! The guesthouse is located in the countryside of Amber, with a view on the fort, in the middle of the hills...
Price range : ₹100 - ₹400 | Open for lunch and dinner (alcoholic beverages not available)
This restaurant makes typical Mughal food. It is situated on the main road between Jaipur and Amber, almost opposite to the Jal Mahal. It is an ideal stop for lunch after a visit of the Fort of Amber.
The service and ambiance are correct and the quality of the food is unquestionable. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes are equally fantastic. Don't miss the chicken lababdar and the tandoori chicken. The pricing is also a very good reason to stop there.
