“French food in French Governer's House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

We went to this hotel for dinner. Although, we were quite late, there were a few couples having dinner that time.
While asking about the food and the hotel's history, the waiting staff told us that the chef himself is a European and brings with him a 15 year rich experience in cooking. (Since we were not aware of many dishes written in the menu, i asked the waiter to get best one of each Veg and NonVeg dish.
Had a couple of authentic French dishes with Soup what he served us as their best. They were quite good and we were quite happy with overall presentation and taste of food.
(If you like spicy indianized kind of food, you might not be able to appreciate it much).

About the history of the place, Its a Heritage Hotel (it was French Governer's house till Independence which was later turned into Hotel). You can feel this as soon as you enter the hotel. The staff can tell you more about this(although they themselves arent much aware it, help yourself with Wiki).

Overall, it was a good experience of Nice food in an old historic place.

“Great place, great service, tremendous atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stayed there. It is not 5 star, very old world. A 300 year old bungalow cleverly restored, clean and simple. Good food and great service. They go that extra mile and so centrally located. Loved eating on their terrace cafe under the mango tree.

“The best restaurant in Pondi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We heard from friends about this wonderful restaurant nestled amidst mango trees and we decided to try it out. The place is magical. The continental food, wonderful, the ambience perfect and the best manager we have encountered in any restaurant here. Mr Raja went out of his way to accommodate us and his ever smiling face and very helpful demeanor made the dinner even more perfect for us. The service is not at all rushed here. But when the food arrived, it was worth the wait. Strongly strongly recommended. ( Veg Meal for two - Rs 500)

“Lovely Location and Great Ambience”

This one is for the traveller who would like to experience the old world charm of the town. It's located right near the governor's bungalow. Food is pretty much pleasing.
