We have visited the restaurant for dinner on Friday.. French style sea foods are very tasty. Live music played on that day which was very nice. Dont order indian style food like briyani which was sub standard and more of karam masala as we ordered for our kid. Best place for french food lovers!!!

Locals walk...

This hotel was an amazing oasis in Pondicherry. We had been traveling for weeks in southern India and really needed a quiet break from the intensity of India. This was it! We stayed for 4 days in this lovely place on a tree-lined street. The room was excellent with a fun tub/shower with bubble bath. Dining was either in a...

We stayed for 2 nights at this heritage hotel, which is a converted French colonial era building. Our room, was quiet on the second floor, with period furnishings. But the bathroom was a problem! To take a shower, you had to climb into the tub and use a hand shower, the old wooden toilet seat was old, but had cracks...

I planned for a short family vacation to Pondicherry and booked Le Dupliex. My arrival was early morning and post discussion the hotel staff facilitated for early check in and arranged a cot for the infant. The hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative.
