cosy atmosphere, pleasant evenings, just across the beach ,nice breakfast , an antique shop are the postive aspects. in the evening, troops of youngsters flock the open restaurant and fill it with songs and make teh evening worthwhile. The area is closed to traffic in late venings and upto early mornings, making it a pleasure resort where people stroll around... More

we often visit pondicherry, and make it a point to have brunch at The Promenade. The ocean view is wonderful and food is tasty. they also serve live fried or "pollichathu" fish etc; the unlimited beer is also a good attraction. the rooms are good but costly, and getting an ocean view room is very difficult.
