An experience to forget. The orders came late. Not only that, the staff did not give the complete order. When I protested, the gentleman I presume was the manager came up and told me that we had received what we had ordered. I told him that I would get back to Bangalore and complain about the restaurant. His reply was... More

A nice rooftop restaurant in the adorable French quarter of Pondicherry, serving good Italian. We had spaghetti in tomato basil sauce & mushrooms baked in white sauce. Dessert was good- bread pudding drenched in whisky. The white decor is as soothing as the beautiful sea breeze wafting across.

Walked in through a back door of sorts where you can smell and see all the icky stuff happening to make you meal. No lift - so old people can forget about this place. Very indifferent service - starters came at the end, water was not given even when asked. The food itself was not bad - but given the... More

I wanted to have pork and hence ended up at this place and we didn't regret our decision. The place has a beautiful ambiance with good service. The team was ready to serve even before we could raise our hands to call them. Very few restaurants have such responsible stuff. They had a well decorated Christmas tree on the middle... More

The place is nice up on the roof and a very modern setting. The food is awful. We were 10 people and everyone of us hated our food. The mashed potatoes are vile. Most of the items are North Indian - why? and the so called French food is sad. The Fresh fish when asked to be seen comes out... More

Food was nice with many options to order. Ambience was nothing great, bit hot in the afternoons and overall it was not a good experience with so many smokers around!
