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.

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

We had seen this café numerous times while walking around as it was very close to our hotel. The main door looked very inviting with its vibrant colours and I saw the time printed as 10am to 7.30pm so it was a perfect choice for a quick coffee and sandwich after leaving the hotel and before venturing out for sightseeing....

I have been visiting Pondi since 90's.Then, Maison Rose, was an old colonial house painted in Saffron.The house is now restored & renovated in lovely pink. The place is mostly open & nature-cooled. Trees / plants along the corridor & wooden furnitures recreates the colonial era. Chef is very cordial & sensitive. He is good at recommendation. Since it was... More
