Very nice and very clean Restraunt, very professional staff.. INDIAN food may need lot of improvement as the food was very bland with no flavours. However if the Restraunt has classified itself to be a French or an Italian gourmet kitchen the. It's better to give up serving Indian food as it misleads the Indian cuisine big time.

We visited for a cocktail in one of the few hotel bars in Pondicherry that had some atmosphere and a bit of life about it. We ended up staying for dinner and were not disappointed. The service was excellent.
