Great courtyard restaurant

We had lunch at this french courtyard cafe/restaurant two days running. Loved the ambience, food was great, service very good. Great place for relaxing and remarkably cool compared to the streets outside. Enjoyed having a break from indian food (although we love that too!) and the menu was... read more

I visited with my family to this boutique French restaurant for lunch on recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed. The ambiance is very nice , little non-conventional with chairs and tables on an open court below trees. Since we were not much conversant with french cuisine we sought the help of the steward who helped us through the menus.... More

Beautiful ambience and nice soft music, very low light. Very French. Good continental food, although could have been better considering the price. Service was very good and made us feel welcome. They only have courtyard seating with lots of foliage around. So make sure you take your mosquito repellant with you :-) Great place to go for a drink. Not... More

We enjoyed our evening at Maison Rose. They were busy when we arrived but served us drinks in a side courtyard and soon had a table ready. We found the food imaginative; seer fish on a bed of apple with pea puree, this was well cooked and really worked. The caramalised apple and the lime mousse puds are very tasty.... More

We used to come often as the food is ok. Nothing to say about this. But the service is not worth. Last time we went, we asked for a mosquito coil and a rude waiter replied us that it was useless (which I don't think it is true but we did not say anything). At the end of the dinner... More

I had no idea about the history of Pondicherry until I arrived. Occupied and run by the French until 1954 when it joined the then relatively new Indian nation. The French have left many things behind, like street names, and cuisine. Our Indian hosts had been told about this place and we were so pleased to find it and get... More

We made the mistake of stepping into this place in spite of having heard from people that they discriminate against them. The waiters were lackadaisical in there service. We waited 15 minutes for a menu. Once we had decided on our order, they told us that they will only serve us after 1 hour. We asked why - they said... More

My wife and I went to this place as tourists in Puducherry on a saturday evening after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were sitting at a table for 5 min, when we were told by one of the staff that we were sitting in a reserved area for a private party- he did not escort us to some other... More

Set towards the back of the building in a beautiful courtyard the setting is wonderful and inviting. We started with the fresh juice, followed with the shrimp salad and the cheese plate both of were amazing. We had a veggie burger, which was ok but pretty basic. The staff were friendly and helpful, definitely worth a visit.
