The restaurant "looked" great & had the French colony feel, so we thought of trying it out for dinner. The ambience was nice & wasn't too crowded. We ordered just 2 dishes & it took them forever to come. We asked the waiter several times...More

Great place to try creole food. The french dishes on the menu are a must try. Lemon chicken in pancakes is truly amazing. The candle light ambience at night is really wonderful.

Topping my list of favourites in Pondicherry would be the HOTEL DE L'ORIENT on Rue Romain Rolland, which remains true to its Neemrana non-hotel ethic in its sublimely atmospheric CARTE BLANCHE courtyard restaurant. I honestly couldn't decide which I liked more - the soup glacee aux concombres et amandes, a truly light and delicious cold soup made with cucumber and almonds or the equally refreshing figues sechees aromatisees a l'eau de rose (oranges, dates and dry figs in a salad dressed with rose water).
