We enjoyed a great and unhurried meal here watching the sea and the crowds along the seafront. A thoroughly memorable evening with good food

ALERT! If you have any sort of foot or legs pain, avoid Lighthouse Pondicherry. The place is for those who appreciate the beauty of the city that Pondicherryis. Avoid dresses because its super windy up there. Good for panaromic clicks.

This restaurant on the roof of the Promenade hotel is now called Bay of Buddha. It overlooks the seaside Promenade and has the best view on offer. Seating takes time and you should order a drink and wait regardless of how long the staff says the waiting time might be. The food was good and the staff are friendly and... More

It is one of the attraction in Pondicherry and it is on the beach road. Visit there once to know about it from the historical point of view.

Lighthouse bar is on the rooftop of the promenade hotel. This is now called the bay of Buddha restaurant. Get here to enjoy some drinks with the view of the promenade. It is a great view and feel of the breeze. They have happy hours from 5 to 7. Please Make reservations for a table. They are booked mostly.

Delicious seafood and beautiful ambience. The quantity is not so good. Prices are little bit on the higher side, but overall experience is good.The boutique in the hotel is good for some shopping.

We went to this restaurant for dinner and tried the seafood. The staff were friendly and made the dish as per our preference. But rather than the food, it is the view that justifies the value. One can experience a beautiful view of the sea while having food. I would recommend people to go to this place by sunset time.... More
