Good view of the lake, though no boating yet
on Oct 6, 2017
The restaurant has an excellent view of the lake Pavana which is now at full capacity after the monsoon. There is the peacock and turkey in the property who move freely around the visitors. The restaurant which serves snacks is simple and is crowded over the weekend. The area is too small for a large crowd especially when the water level is high/ lake is full. The bad road from Lonavala has deteriorated further with the rains as usual and after last year there is no boating as the license was revoked after accidents while swimming. There is a small island in the lake which is accessible by foot when the lake is dry. But without boating it's just good for a view and a long trip on a bad road.
Pre-monsoon Pleasant Evening at Pawna Lake

If you want to spend half a day or an evening viewing the lake with a drizzle of rain this a perfect gateway for Punekars!
In June month the water level in the dam is such that you can soak into the lake to enjoy the cool water. We left at 2.30 from Chinchwad at reached the dam at 3.45pm. There is a restaurant inside the boat club where we had mix bhajis and noodles. Here everything is available right from Punjabi dishes to Chinese but is comparatively costly. Water sports are available most of the time. You can also enjoy horse riding.
If you visit in the end of rainy season, the dam is almost full and you are not allowed to enter the water. The water sports are open only if there is no heavy rain. This is also a good experience with waterfalls and lush green view on the way.
It is very breezy and you will enjoy the view a lot.
Good place even to spend time with family.
An afternoon and sunset by the lake.. Amazing

On a random bike ride, we wanted to bike around the lake and we landed at this surprise place located just besides the lake. The place is beautiful with some amazing views. The seating arrangement is at a good height, giving it a perfect place to sit and chomp on some food. Access to the lake is just a few stairs below and can stay till you can! We had planned for lunch but we spent time till sunset - this place is amazing all credits to its location.

A friend recommended this place, I had no idea what it be, but to my surprise it was just awesome, situated jst along the lake, they have some fine seatings overlooking the lake. Food is good. Best if u want to relax and unwind. A walk with your loved one alongside the lake is just memorable.
This place can be busy at times and u hv to wait but the wait is worth.
They serve some good chicken dishes.

Bang on Pavna lake, it's like an oasis in the middle of nowhere... Standard fare, made better by the awesome location.... The prices will pop your eyes a bit, but considering there's nothing else a few kilometers in any direction.... You'll settle.... Pasta & Bhaji tried and recommended...
