Food quality was very poor and so was the service. The location was good and the restaurant en cashed on this.

Le Cafe has one of best gourmet of food offering triggering taste bud of all people who visit to Pondicherry. Located right on beach gives you a perfect view of sea while you gulp your drink and food.

Typical canteen style self service restaurant offers fresh and great food. Good part is this is a 24X7 hrs cafe and you can just sit around throughout the day.

Happened to meet an old pal from Guangzhouv (China) at 10 pm at Cafe and we we were there till 5 am. There was a group of 5-10 people in cafe with whom we did a music jamming session and enjoyed the night a lot.

Do not visit for Name (Le Cafe) or with high expectation -

For those who wants to visit:
In single sentence: Excellent location, Only for Relaxing, if you have time limitation – Skip it, you have many other choices! More chances, you will be disappointed in overall experience. Not worth for the Long queue, poor service, poor seating, etc.!

1. Expect Long queues!
2. Self service
3. Tables are not cleaned properly
4. Overall, poorly maintained restaurant
5. Peak Season / hours, shortage of Tables
6. Not professional Staff (Felt not tourist friendly)
7. More of continental verities

GOOD:
Excellent location – Rock beach, near Marquis Dupleix Statue (& many other monuments nearby). Easily can spend enjoyable time of couple of hours on some dishes.

#. It is said to 24 x 7 – but heard that this will be open till 2 - 3am.
#. Said to be a Part of French port – No marks at all
#. One of the oldest restaurants of French Pondi

Won’t recommend for a quick trip person; if you are a long holiday, do visit & spend long hours on some food (Avoid Sunny Hours).

Note: Many other options, at less busy shores are available in Pondi!!

It was a nice place to sit and enjoy your sip or fill your Tommy’s while seeing the beautiful seen of the sea and taking snapshots. But it needs lot of improvement in the field of sanitation.

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.
