During my time in Jodhpur, I made sure, to visit some of the most lovely rooftop restaurants/cafes/bars. I am listing the ones I found to be some of the best and customer friendly, for my readers to help themselves on their own trips to the beautiful blue city.
One of the best, budget friendly restaurant with a spectacular view of the blue city as well as the front portion of the Mehrangarh Fort which sits right infront of the cafe. The food is delicious and the prices are some of the most reasonable and cheapest I found in Jodhpur, making it one of the most loved rooftop restaurant/cafe in the city. It is just few meters away from the magnificent Toorji ka Jhalra Stepwell monument. It is present on the rooftop of it's parent organisation, Gopal Guest House.

A very unique, Rajasthani Architecture themed Hotel, Pal Haveli is a sight to behold. Overlooking the busy and happening hearthrob of Jodhpur City, the Ghantaghar (Girdikot Market), the marvellous hotel boasts of an equally beautiful rooftop restaurant, the Indique Restaurant which impressed me by many factors. The courtsey of the staff and management is very much to be appalauded as well as the quality and quantity of the food. I especially loved the Jodhpuri Chakki ki Sabzi, which was absolutely delicious. Although the price range of this restaurant is a bit expensive, compared to the other cafes and restaurants I visited, I can assure you, your experience here will be worth every penny you pay.
