We landed up at this place since we were staying at a resort close by. Since some of my friends were essentially looking for a variety of sea food for dinner, we thought this place would be ideal. The menu looked good. But when we started placing the order, we heard negative responses for most of the sea food dishes.... More

Service and cleanliness was poor. Few dishes were missing the taste for e.g crab fry had equal amount of ground crab meat, chillies, onions and garlic. Overall its average and cheap if you are considering a quick grab in pondicherry.

Ambience was really good with lots of green trees around and a small lawn for children to play. Very near to Auroville beach. Enjoyed cool breeze from sea.. Food was decent. First time when I visited, food was really good.. but second time it was good but the chicken used for dishes is not good. Sea food is really worth... More

Pathetic service, bad ambience, sad food. The other reviews are fares, don't believe them. Strongly not recommended. Don't waste your time. Skip this. All cuisine with no claim to fame On EcR road but definitely skip
