Good French cuisine and very nice atmosphere in the terrasse. Food is good and prices are quite okay (a bit expensive for India but you can have a "burger maison/frites" for 5 €). French managers are very nice but Indian employees are not very professional.

Great food, great drinks and great service. This place has it all, the outside and undercover areas are gorgeous, which adds to the great atmosphere and background music. Do yourself a favor and try the home made lime tart, the best I've had.

I went to this place at the suggestion of my friend that the steak is juicy and tasty. All I got was an overdone steak cut from what I can assume as a dead cow, because is was so damn hard. And the zucchini rolls, No seasoning whatsoever. Since I was there for lunch, I could see how bad the... More

A good experience, the drawback though is the cotton dust flying into your food from the tree far end of the restaurant. Some attention has to be paid to this problem.

The dinner menu presented to be very limited , but the place has a definite zing about it. Do not try the tuna is my only advise here

Ok first off I must start by carping about the quantity because being a hearty eater, one dish is not quite enough for one person....but that is the only thing against this place. A lovely wind-swept roof top, friendly waiters, and very interesting dishes make this a must visit. I am writing this review a week after my trip, so... More

Again our Tuk Tuk driver let us out at the wrong place and we struggled to find this. Great setting out under the stars in the courtyard. Fairly small menu and simple (burgers, steak etc) but nice food at good prices in a great setting with good friendly service.

I really have mixed feelings towards this place. Let me start with the positives first. The ambience is unbeatable. it is in the courtyard of a quaint French villa and as the name suggests, it's pink! While that may be ordinary in Pondicherry, but it is quite spectacular for the rest of us. Any time of the day this place... More

We had a late lunch here and had pretty bad service. It seemed like you had to be French and know the owners to get decent service. I ordered an iced coffee that came to me sweetened. When I sent it back, the guy looked at me like I had five heads. Just not a great experience.
