This is a very hyped place. It is okay nothing more than this. The staff is good, but that was not enough. We tried fried prawns which were expensive but very mediocre.

Good food, a bit unkempt place though! The waiter took 40 minutes to revert that calamari was not on menu that day! Apart from the wait and the not to great ambiance, the food was enjoyable.

We ate there the first night we were in Pondicherry and we were not disappointed. The garden setting is very relaxing, the service was very attentive and the food was good. A complete package

In the French Quarter and just around the corner from French Quarter hotels is Satsanga French and Italian Restaurant ( also with plenty of Indian dishes on the menu). It has a lovely garden setting, reasonable prices and friendly staff. The food is good, though not exceptional. A large Kingfisher beer 750 ml is 175Rs + 15% tax. The menu... More

tasteful, a bit touristy because now every one knows it's good :) The food is not too spicy. I like the terrace, it is very comfortable. I did not really enjoy the staff though, not always very friendly. I recommend it for people who just arrive and want to have a taste of India

Went there with my family for a evening meal. The seating is outdoors which though humid was bearable. What was a disappointment was the food - very badly cooked and highly priced. To make matters worse, too many cats and mosquitoes keep you company !! - Not recommended.
