Lovely garden, delicious drinks

Lovely garden, delicious drinks. Seating in this terrace full of trees is a refreshing experience after a day spent in the outside heat.

An awesome place for a meal or coffee. This place has a lareg and airy open air seating area which you would love. Plus there is also a store attached to it where you can shop for tastefully curated stuff. Try their oriental salad and their fish. You wont regret!

We were in Pondicherry for 4 days with lunch and dinner at different restaurants all over the french side. Found the food here least interesting , the cook seems to have lost the passion for cooking and the person waiting the tables was brusque , impatient to the point of being rude. The food that followed was not up to... More

Good menu, good food, very prompt service and all in a lovely garden where you can relax and enjoy the ambience of Ponty. The food is great value and the quite a lot of the menu to chose from. Worth a visit.

We came back here three times in three days, it was far better than anything else we tried. we ate bland food at seagulls (with a maggot in the soup) and mediocre food at Le Club, this food was so much better than those other two recommended venues. the mozarella starter and steak main were particularly great, but the fish...

We were visiting Pondi on a lazy weekend and were looking for a place for lunch and beer. We came across this place with an exotic looking entrance. The restaurant is set a little inside the building and the hustle and bustle of the street is totally cordoned off. Be careful they close for the afternoon around 2:30-3 pm and... More

Situated in the midst of greenery, the ambience is lush and peaceful. I had the crazy oriental salad with semolina and goats cheese which was fresh and delicious. I usually don't like too many vegetables in my salad, but this was an exception. Highly recommend this place if you're looking for a cozy and artsy cafe in Pondicherry!

Hotels with an outdoor seating steal the show for me even before I've visited the place and this place does complete justice to the same. Dim lit, just enough music, it is located close to Beach Road. Just the correct Pondi flavours to the food, it is a must visit. Perfect place for a brunch!

Lovely looking restaurant and interesting menu. However unfortunately the experience didn't live up to the promise. The food was average in preparation and presentation. Not worth the money and compared to the alternatives available,not recommended
