The cafe was amazing. food was delicious and the the excellent ambience. Clean n neat rooftop, which deserves your visit and trust me you will be very happy . House made refreshing drinks were awesome. I have been here twice and i loved the food...each time. A place you shouldn't miss if you love to eat (food lovers).More

We visited Cafe Veloute on Feb 14 & our experience was simply amazing.. The ambience was classy & tidy.. The staffs were so courteous.. They serve a wide variety of dishes rooted from French cuisine & if u prefer to have South Indian or North...Indian cuisine, they serve that too.. If u are a gourmet of food.., then it s a must visit dine in place to please ur taste buds.. We enjoyed dishes like grilled polento & fish platter.. On the whole it was a memorable experience with Cafe Veloute ✨Thanks to the whole team.. Best wishes 💐More

We went there after reading good reviews online but frankly, I wasn't impressed. The seating is fine, it's a roof top cafe, walking distance from the promenade beach, it's a small place, the service is quick but the food lacks the appeal. We tried the...Braised chicken breast ( served with mashed potato and a mushroom sauce) - chicken vindali ( chicken cooked in traditional Pondicherry style and served with beer batter dosa) The portions are very small, sufficient for only one person and the prices are steep. The food is not even tasty. There are much better eating places around so Frankly this can be given a miss.More

We stumbled upon this place by accident and wow were we happily surprised. My husband and I both had salads- my Greek salad was a PROPER Greek salad! We both had fish dishes and the fish was fresh and well cooked. The ambience of the...roof top was really chill and inviting. Trip advisor should have this place in the top ten!More
