We had our earlier meal at a french restaurant and was craving for some spicy seafood. Rendezvous was highly recommended and we got exactly what we wanted. Some spicy seafood, Indian style! The menu is very varied with food ranging from continental, indian, chinese etc. We ordered for a crab masala with shell and a jumbo prawn masala.The crab was... More

If it is Souza Lobo's for Goa, it is certainly a Rendezvous in Pondicherry. Just loved the seafood variety, the quality and the quantity of the food. Excellent stuff!

All those photos given are dated, so please don't go by them. This restaurant is obviously a victim of it's reputation and success. There was a really long queue on a Saturday evening when we arrived. People had been waiting for an hour. We were lucky to have had to wait only half an hour before being seated. Seated!! There...

We were there with children. The place is just a decorated shack offering some street food on good cutlery. The butter garlic squid was just ok. The potato mash which accompanied with the squids was not done well. There were lumps in it which were obviously uncooked. The boiled vegetables were all cut in a hurry with different sizes and...

This place is a good bett! the service is excellent and the people are very friendly. The food was given on time and servings were good. The only thing I felt that needed some improvement was to ensure the food is warm when served. There were a few dishes that could have been a little warmer.

Service is very very slow, food is good but not great, decor is very clumsy and depressing. Although they have tried to bring in an ethnic feel, it could have been made to look cleaner. The chairs are extremely uncomfortable as they are revolving but almost immobile laterally. A lot of the items mentioned on the menu are unavailable. They... More

This very popular restaurant which was quite crowded when we visited did not disappoint much. The Catch of the day fish -Hallibout- was very good. The mocktails were average. The fish sizzler was above average. In general the sea food was good although the meat dishes were not upto the mark. Also a good place to have a cool beer... More
