A decent restaurant - Clubby?. Not yet.

This was my second visit to the Le Club in two years. Like the first time, I came in with high expectations and ended up rationalizing those expectations. Le Club is at a great location and you can walk in after a strolling along the Promenade. I liked the ambiance but felt that the... read more

We had Buffalo steak (beautifully tender) the first night & pizza the second. Food was excellent - best pizza in India so far, but the price of a Kingfisher an extortionate 220 rupees, then they add 10% service & tax on top. Sula wine was a shocking 2200 rupees + tax & service (Goa only 1100 rupees) & if you... More

We were advised to have at least one meal here, as it is considered to be an institution in Pondy. The casual ambience is pleasant and the food quite enjoyable and good value. The menu is extensive -- Indian, French Italian etc. Good quality and presentation., attentive service. Extensive drinks and wine list too , with some excellent choices. I'm... More

The ambience was good but pricewise the food quality and quantity was not sufficient. Also, the sitting arrangement was not planned I felt and the chairs were lower than usual in comparison with the tables.

A very nice restaurant and bar in a lovely garden setting. Tasty and surprisingly tender steak with bernaise sauce. Extensive drinks menu and delightful service. Recommended.

Revisiting in March 2015 I was glad to find that Le Club is as good as ever. The vibrant and relaxing atmosphere, the delightful range of foods and drinks were excellent, alongside thoughtful and quick service. This time I had the main course grilled prawns; succulent and richly prepared in garlic ghee sauce these were some of the best I... More

The restaurant is pretty vibrant and offers good food and drinks. We stayed in the hotel and they never agreed to deliver stuff to the room so we had to walk out and place our order everytime we had to have a meal. The pizza here was one of the best pizzas I ever had. As a vegetarian, I would... More
