“Just Amazing....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

the place is a bit hard to find.
google maps doesnt help much.
the place is nice the interiors were well done.
so we sat down n order a couple of dishes.
CHICKEN ala kiev is a must try seriously it was one of the best dishes ever!!! perfectly done!
the garlic bread was good so was the red sauce pasta. plz avoid the salads.
a must try if u r in pondy.
head early as it gets crowded soon.

“Excellent food, great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

This was by far the best food that we had at Pondicherry. The vegetarian options are a little limited - but the food was really good and service was excellent. Could be a little on the pricier side of things, but definitely worth it.

“Everything was better in the past”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

In the case of the Cafe Rendevouz this is unfortunately true.
The Rendezvous used to be THE place in town. One of the only places at least where you could expect a decent lunch and dinner in a nice athmosphere on the roof top garden.
The roof top garden is closed. The food is normal - as you can get everywhere in Pondy and in my view there is no reason to come. This shows also in the very small number of guests who go to the restaurant. As a result you sit there alone - not very amusing.

“Should go..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have eaten here twice. Once in the roof top restaurant and once in the main restaurant. The place is crowded in weekends and holidays. The food and service is good. Another "should try" place. and the manager is a beautiful lady.

“Great food,good staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We read about this hotel somewhere while plannign this trip to pondy.Its a little difficult to find but worth the search.we had our sygic system.best way to find this place (also any place of importance in pondy) is ,as soon you land in your hotel ask for a guide book.every hotel has a guide book.we stayed at 'the mercure' and they provided us with this book.
follow the map and you will reach rendezvous.its a small place in a nice locality.clean hotel.courteous staff..going by the earlier reviews written in 2011 and all i guess they have changed a lot..
we ordered a chicken ala kiev.it was very tasty and very filling.they didnot have all the desserts in their menu so we left to another place nearby called chocola..
