Visited this place on the Promenade . Had great expectations from this place since it has a French name. But sad to say there is nothing French left about this place except its name.
This self service restaurant is poorly maintained and looks dirty. We walked out without having anything looking at this shabby place. This place is just akin to a road side open tea stall.

It is a building on the rock beach and was part of the earlier French port . Now it is run by PDTC. So like any typical sarkari cafe it offers sarkari service. The biggest USP of this place is its location. To be seated right next to the sea and having food is something that needs to be experienced

What a waste of a place ! Located in such a nice place overlooking the ocean with breeze blowing all the time , supposed to be a 24X7 place but actually not so . Very unprofessional staff , uncourteous , arrogant with food quality which is not very standard . The place could rock if formatted appropriately with friendly staff & menu . Worth a visit though primarily for location .

Le Cafe is one of the attractions of Rock Beach . Its a miss if you are in Pondicherry but have not visited here. A walk in the evening on Rock beach will be incomplete without a coffee from Le cafe, facing the sea and enjoying its endless weaves , wide view and cool breeze . We also went there in the morning. Me and my friend both of us tried different types of breakfast . The continental type of breakfast consists of fresh fruit juice, freshly toasted breads with butter and jam, fruit salad, cheese omelette , as far as I remember these were the contents. It was more than enough for one person ! The south Indian breakfast was also filled with fresh idlys and crunchy , mouth watering vadas. price seemed to be little costly compared to other food joints of pondicherry . But the experience of sitting on a seaside cafe gives the place a foreign like feel. I guess because of this reason there were so many foreigners from different locations around the world. If its a leisure travel then a good amount of time you can spend here over breakfast or cup of coffee. We was almost for one and half hour for our breakfast . Strange thing was, even after that also we did not find it boring to be there. We would have missed a great experience if we had not beenthere .
