The "chicken" burger contained no chicken, the chips were so chewy they bounced, all three of them, and the service was appalling. Give it a miss, don't feed these cretin's greed.

Food is overpriced. It's on the shore of rock beach. People like to visit this place for the view. First floor of the cafe is open only after evenings. It's one time visit kind of cafe.

We had a quick lunch here our first day in Pondicherry and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The lasagne was great and so was the view. Pay at the wicket, take your receipt and order your food. Not impressive at first glance but it was a good experience. The price was right, that's for certain....worth a try!

Just an average cafeteria. The location is excellent...just on the seafront..but the owner has not really developed the property. The preparations are OK type. Not really clean place. Needs improvement and upgradation

Firstly, it may take you ages to get a reservation here; and if you finally get it, the service will be slow and slightly careless to a point where you may want to change your order to something far simpler and quicker to fetch.
