A very neat and tidy white rooftop resturant. You can even see the blue sea-line of Promanade beach. I enjoyed my visit and loved the food as well. I stopped here for lunch and had fish fillet with rice and veggies. Staff seemed nice and polite; helped me with the directions as I was traveling alone.

Good food accompanied by excellent music. Each night differs for the type of music and offers. Local couple take good care of all.

Atmosphere: if you like it white in white, modern, boring and sterile with awfully disturbing street notice and charts plastic music, come. Staff: ok. They come after some time If you shout at them, they might even react if they did not plan to come to your table, bit do not hesitate to shout, otherwise there is no chance to... More

Thank you for your review. I remember attending to your table and very patiently listening to all your feedback. And also offered to fix anything that you were not satisfied with. By then all four of you had "LICKED" the plates clean. It was a busy weekend and you would have noticed, we were packed. I even remember inviting you... More

The ambience of the restaurant is beautiful...all in white on the rooftop. The music is a mix and gives the place a fun feel. Probably the most happening place in Pondicherry as it can get a little dull. The food is good....enjoyed all the dishes that were served. A little pricey but the portions are large and overall the experience... More

I had been to this place, 5-6years back, can't remember the exact year but from what I remember, is that, I like the new look better. My visit now was on July 30th'16. We were visiting Pondicherry for a weekend trip & I managed to remember that we may have to call and reserve a table. Good thing, because the... More

The restaurant is taken over by the next generation of the Mathias family, the couple happily run the show ..They have renovated the place and have attempted to give a modern twist while still keeping the old school charm of erstwhile Rendezvous intact.. The place is surprisingly always packed and music flows out on the streets beckoning people to walk... More

We visited this place last weekend for dinner. It is on the rooftop and the ambience is quite lovely. One of the trendiest places in Pondicherry. Must visit. Food was delicious just that it was little pricy

As such, the appetizers were very good and the main course and dessert were a hit or miss. There are better places for food in Pondicherry, to be honest. However, I would still highly recommend the Coq du Vin (non-veg) and the Bailey's dessert (forgot the full name). What makes the place really enjoyable and unique is the ambience and... More

I visited this place with my friends. It was highly recommended by one of my friends and I must say it dint disappoint. Ambience makes it up for okayish food. Food is hit or a miss. Lasagne was strictly below average but Steak was good. Don't miss out on this restaurant whenever you are in pondi.
