Had tasted Burger, Kombucha, Lasagne, Finger chips with cream. Food is tasty. As the cafe is on the shore of Beach, Most of the time it is crowded. It is opened 24/7. Operated by Tourism dept. of Puducherry.

Le Cafe would have an awesome place to hangout, once upon a time in Pondicherry. Under less crowded circumstances, it offers everything that one would wish for in one's local hangout: an enviable 24x7 service, an awesome view, decent food, polite waiters - the complete package. But unfortunately, times have moved on. The place is clearly understaffed given the crowds... More

My review is totally dependent of the location of restaurant. This is amazing place to have breakfast where sea is just 2 feet away. The food is not good but if you order english breakfast then it is OK.

The best possible location. Bang in the centre. Lovely wind on the first floor as you face the sea. Food quality was decent. But service was bad....rather it is self service and one runs into language issue, multiple counters, poor signages etc. Lots of scope for improvement. Owners are sitting on a gold mine of a location.

I'm really surprised at some of the high ratings given by people to this outlet. Being a government establishment, it is the only cafe allowed on the sea front at the marina. There stop the positives. As for the rest of the review - extremely rude waiters, non-existent hygiene (if you insist on a clean table, they grab a disgusting... More

Le caf has one of the best location possible in Pondicherry. It's at the center of Promenade. The best thing about this place is its view and outdoor dining. Food is okay. It has good range of options but during peak hours most of items are sold out. You can have coffee and burger. Overall its a good place for... More

We went for breakfast but except for omelette and toast there was no option even at 11am. So except for the location, its got nothing. Rude staff. Bad service. We need to struggle to call the waiter every time. We found an insect inside the moca shake. So go at your risk..

Being an open air cafe right at the beach, it could be a bad option at the noon and times of peak sun. My visit was one such. Reaching here for a small eat at 12, I realized that it had a good variety of lasagne and gratin as well. The staff here was welcoming as well. I had ordered... More
