“been twice- would go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

I went to this restaurant in 2010 and 2012. the little boat trip to get there is a pleasure as you see the palaces from a super vantage point. Once on the island you can have a wonder in the gardens, then sit to eat in the indoor a/c'd restaurant. The curries are super, and the indian wines very good value too. The restaurant is small, but very beautifully decorated. One would need to book so ask your concierge to do this before hand, and arrange boats times etc!

The arrival by boat at Jagmandir Island Palace at night was spectacular. However, when we got off the boat there was no one to tell us where to go and no clear signage. We wandered around until we found someone to show us where the restaurant was. The setting was attractive, but the food was mediocre. There are better places to dine in Udaipur.

it was just next to a nightmare visiting the so called jagmandir palace, udaipur.i will never ever suggest anybody to visit that place.we had the worst experience there.i with my family went for a dinner all the way from delhi, and i was expecting a lot more good things from this place.but good things are far behind.the staff there do not even know how to behave with their guests.and strictly for vegetarians i will suggest you to never choose this place for dinner because they are serving animal bone in vegetarian dishes, and when they are caught they will not apologize but they will misbehave with you, will offer a complementary dessert to insult you, and above all if you say something they will call upon the guards to throw you out from their so call well ambient hotel.but mind it this is not enough, when you will ask for manager, first they will give you excuses and then finally when the manager from somewhere like a jinn will come and instead of apologizing, he will say you are vegetarians then you should have dinner in only vegetarian hotel.it means you people should strictly mention on your site that this hotel is only meant for non-vegetarians.so people, do go on the beauty of this hotel because, its beast behind this beauty......

We had a friends daughter wedding ceremony there. a 10 minutes boat ride to the island is a retreat having few suites and a small palatial architecture and arches. The view of the fort from the island is great. I thought it to be something outstanding but it remains quiet normal except that it was a friends invitation.

Room Tip: If one has extra money it can be taken as a short stay.

This is the perfect place in Udaipur.
you can get there with a turist boat around lake Pichola. You can stop there and take any of the next boats to get back to mainland.
The Jagmandir palace is in the middle of the island and offers great view of the city and lake.

One of the characteristics of India is overcrowded places. Well this is not the case. Its a perfect place to stop for a drink or lunch, while enjoying great views offered by its exclusive location.

Also is worth walking through its gardens where you may find beautiful fountains and sculptures.

We took the boat to the Jagmandir Palace which is inside the Picchola lake at 2:00pm which is when the rates are Rs 300 per person. After 2:00pm the ticket rates shoot upto Rs 500 per person for which there is no logical reason. So if you want to save your hard earned money to should take the 2:00pm boat.
There is a very lovely restaurant by the lake, where we had our lunch. The food there is noting to harp about and you would get better quality elsewhere. We ordered some beers, a biriyani and a chicken burger, which at first came without the fries. It was brought to our table as an after thought only after being reminded about it. The chicken biriyani was just O.K- nothing royal about it considering the fact that you are in a royal hotel's restaurant. The service inside the restaurant was just O.K, I had to ask the server thrice to bring me glass for the beer.
We also had coffee outside the restaurant by the lake where a lovely breeze was blowing in the evening and really enjoyed it. Surprisingly the service here was much better and prompt.
We stayed on the premises until evening and the lights of the palace came on, it was just enchanting. Didn't want to leave the place. Wish I was a Maharaja.
