“average food - how can someone mess uo pasta?”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

the food was very average. they completely messed up three different types of pastas - over-cooking them - and compensating quality with quantity.

even some of the veg options were average. the only dish we really liked was a seafood sizzler - that was cooked to perfection.

all in all - okay to skip.

“Rendezvous serves the best food in town”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We visited a lot of restaurants in Pondicherry, but the one we loved the most and went back to often was Rendezvous. Lovely food, hearty meals, value for money and a lovely ambiance. The restaurant has few tables and can get full quite fast , so you might have to wait sometimes to get a table. Everything we tried from the menu was yummy, filling and had the best prices. If you are a seafood lover, you have to have to try their seafood harvest. Its reasonably priced and has a variety of seafood. including oysters, mussels and squid.
We also enjoyed the pork spare ribs. Succulent and tender, with a wonderful sauce. Couldn't get enough of it. So don't think twice before stopping here for a meal.
Service is just ok, not the quickest and friendliest maybe, but good enough not to put you off. And yes honest to tell you if you are ordering too much.:)
However, I'm not too sure if the vegeterrians have the best choice here.

“Relaxing place”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The ambience of the cafe is really relaxing and give you complete feel of a beach destination . The food out here is amazing but if your are a steak lover you will be disappointed . The alcohol is a bit pricy as compared to other places in pondi .
But over all its a must go food joint at pondi

“Great place for breakfast and chilling with a beer!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

After searching for a good place for breakfast we landed up at Rendevous not knowing what to expect and hoping to get a good continental breakfast with eggs, bacon et al. Voila! we did get exactly what we wanted. The breakfast was fantastic with crepes and banana and honey, the breakfast platter with choice of eggs, bacon, toast, roasted pineapple slices, banana.. We loved it. Its a place where you can visit with family, couples, friends and anyone you want to. The service was not that great but not bad either. The waiter din't know what was on the platter and what choice of drinks they had and other things like that but the food made it up for all that. So go on and have a great time at Rendevous..

“Great seafood, just ok service”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

The food is great. Esp the seafood. Also it is reasonable priced. However the service is very much wanting. There were long delays for our food.
The ambiance is nice. It is a small place and so you may have to wait a bit for a table exp if you are in a large group. Sometimes if you call ahead they will accommodate your request.
