The french Restaurant

You probably can find better places to eat, however would they get up early to make you your favourite bread on your last day in India. Lovely people, this restaurant is basic but authentic. Thank you for making the effort for us. Mike and Valerie London

Cute and friendly little restaurant. Made a nice change having some different foods other than Indian! We love Indian food but made a nice change to have some pasta and garlic baguette!! The owner is very friendly. We enjoyed our evening here. Don't be out off by the little dirt road to the restaurant!!

My mom and I had a tasty breakfast here at this charming little restaurant, which is located down a little path off of the main road. The husband-wife team running the place do everything themselves and are very friendly and hard working. The highlight of our experience was the cooking class we took that afternoon at the owner's house, led... More

I loved the chocolate fantasy pastry and the hot chocolate but when the bill arrived I was surprised as we had to pay quite a lot for the normal things. Taste is good but not value for money. There are lot many bakeries in Thekaddy to try for. Its a nice place but there are better coffee and bakery shops... More

Don't get scared off by the narrow dirt road or the very naïf hut.. you are about to taste some delicious food made with love from the owners. The menu is a mix of indian, israeli and some european influences (name comes from the homemade baguettes). We stopped by for lunch and tasted the indian specials.. we were so happy... More

We had food at the French restaurant which has nothing french or European. A small tent with 3 tables. The juice and the food is freshly prepared. But only the juice is good. I really did not like the food out here.

This was a great find. The proprietors Reji and Subha Kumar go out of there way to make you welcome and they have a menu to cater for all tastes. This is quite simply family cooking at it's best. So good I didn't eat anywhere else !! Subha will also on request teach the fine art of Keralan cookery skills.... More

The 'French' Restaurant isn't all that French. Once you get over that mental hurdle you get a chance to taste some excellent Indian Food. The pizzas looked good as well but why on earth would you eat Western Food in India. Aloo Palak and Aloo Gobi were excellent here as was the veg curry. Food takes about 30-40 minutes as... More
