They forgot my order and my food came as my two friends finished their food. They were not apologetic as well.I asked for the manager and they said there is no manager!!! I went there on... More

Our first restaurant when we arrived Pondicherry which left us a good impression. We ordered India cuisine...it rather salty for my taste although it taste good but later I found that most food in Pondicherry are rather salty to suit the local taste bud. Overall clean & nice food with alcohol served if you like some drinks with your meal.

The food was excellent. The steaks were really good and so were the sizzlers. I would recommend this place for any non -veg fan. The vegetarians too could have a bite but the choice is quite restricted. However, do be aware that the hotel has people smoking inside so do take care of the young ones. The service was excellent...

We had a great lunch here with very attentive staff and helpful in terms of some items on the menu. All three of us were eating veg and had no worries with selection. Good atmosphere of people from all places and locals as well

Likes - the view, the ambience and the dessert Think the service could be better, the food gets a lil cold by the time it reaches the terrace restaurant from the kitchen ( on the ground floor probably) Will surely go back

Charming place. Yummy food. Value for money. A little noisy, but that's because people throng teh place because it is so good! Full marks for the food! The snapper was to die for!

This place is not what you expect it to look like judging from the outside but I quite liked it. It's not fine dining but the place was packed when we visited, had a good vibe and played good music. Food was tasty and they serve beer and wine.

The place like most places of Old Pondicherry again has a good assortment of food and drinks. We visited it just when it was about to close but they were courteous enough to let us in and finish our meal. The only problem with this place is the restroom is in poor condition. And when you go out on a... More
