Khajuraho is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Madhya Pradesh. It's known for its enormous, intricately sculptured temples adorned by vignettes of passion, eroticism, dance, music and creative pursuits. It has 85 original temples, divided into three complexes. The western is the largest and best known, containing the magnificent Shaivite temple Kandariya Mahadev.

Raja's Cafe

Reviewed By SueNewDelhi_India - New Delhi, India

Nothing beats the location of this cafe as it is bang opposite the western Khajuraho temples! Infact, if you grab a seat on the Terrace then you are facing the temples and it feels like you are almost inside them!! Cuisine of the place is as authentic european as it can get and the staff is used to hosting Khajuraho enthusiasts :)

Agrasen

Reviewed By ddevarshi - Jaipur, India

This restaurant is located in a cluster ofrestaurant and hotels. On the basis of reviews on this portal I took my group to this restaurant. However, I discovered that ratings of restaurants on the basis of reviews can be deceptive or have subjectivity. The place and food did not inspire or impress us.

Bella Italia

Reviewed By hpnadig - Bengaluru, India

This place perhaps does not deserve the high rating one sees on TripAdvisor and LonelyPlanet. The place is pretty much like a Dhaba with awkwardly placed tables. There are tables outside facing the crowded street below and there are tables inside an enclosure that has poorly cladded inside that has Mickey and Minnie mouse all over (!)
Garlic Toast was pretty much a bread toast with some sort of garlic spread over it. Spaghetti was quite average. Fresh juice was okay.
I would not visit them again during our stay here.

As usual we were in Khajuraho and had several meals during our stay.
We tried home made pasta ( ravioli recommended) ravioli, fettuccine and lasagne.
All were very good.
The pizza quality is excellent too.
Restaurant is clean and food is daily fresh.
Few pictures of staff.

Maharaja Cafe & Restaurant

Reviewed By DrAtri - New Delhi, India

Very good restaurant with view of the temple. Multi cuisine and the host is fluent in Spanish and French too. Very comfortable for the budget compared to a tourist place. The cook was good and the waiters were good. Huge serving quantity so be careful while ordering so that you don't waste food.
They don't take card payment, only cash

Madras coffee house

Reviewed By Alpa_Sharma

It is one of the cheap eats in Khajuraho, but with the price the quality also is low. Do not expect anything fancy about the Seating. We ordered idly sambar chutney where the chutney was too runny to be called chutney. Coffee too was below average.

Agrawal Restaurant

Reviewed By AVIDTRAVELLER53 - Toronto, Canada

No frills, nothing fancy but good, and relatively hygienic Indian food in Khajuraho. Their normal food is rather oily and spicy so if you are not used to it, remember to tell your server to get Less Oily and Less Spicy.
Friendly staff. Apparently the owner sits at the cash.
Parking is not a problem.

We were very pleased with Mr Mutaz and his team and the chef running the restaurant . They proposed nice Indian specialities as well at breakfast as at lunch and dinner. Vegetables are grown in a private garden. Food is very fresh and very tasteful. The service is really friendly, you feel at home.
