Its an amazing restaurant near the Hadimba Temple.. We had Lasagne, Hawaiian Pizza, Chilli Chicken... all of them were prepared very well.. service is a little slow but efficient..
Alcohol is tax free so keep the bill light..

I went to Johnsons Bar for dinner with friends this month. Firstly the watchman shouted at us - " where are you going, get out " By the way we were all dressed in good semi casuals with jackets, shoes. We still avoided and didnt wanted to spoil our mood so walked in. We called the manager (Ranjeet) who was even rude and said - stags are not allowed. We saw on 2 other tables few boys were sitting. But then i told the manager that there is certain way to say, your watchman should have some manners. We are not locals, so how do we know whether there is no entry for stags ? We are not desperate to come here and we can leave right away. Then he finally agreed and gave us a table. We placed our order and our food came 45 mins after our order and people seated net to us who came later than we arrived got their food and were done with their food. They charge 10 % service charge in the bill !!!! for insulting visiting guests and for a very bad service ? What my experience is with this place is that i will never ever go here again and i tell all my friends who visit Manali not to go here. Let their attitude serve their watchman and staff.

I had stopped here last year and again went for lunch this year. First time I had Continental food and the second time it was Indian food. Both the times the food was excellent and the service was good. The location is good and their parking also makes it an easy place to stop.

On the way to Hadimba Temple from the Mall.

Johnson's is without a doubt the best place to eat in Manali. Me and my friends went randomly on our first day in Manali, and it turned out to be one of the many trips. Everything on the menu is delicious, especially the Pizzas. The ambience is great, and both the owner and folks at the restaurant are very attentive and warm. The place even had live music on the weekend, which only added to the magic of the place. Must Have: Cherry Mint Bruschetta. Its to die for.
