Food was nice with many options to order. Ambience was nothing great, bit hot in the afternoons and overall it was not a good experience with so many smokers around!

We stumbled upon this roof top restaurant, and it was an interesting experience. Loud music in the middle of quiet French town was surprising. The bright and open air ambiance was refreshing. They charged cover charges as we did not make reservation, but it got recovered in no time :) The food menu had limited options though, which was a... More

Perhaps because it was quiet and we were the only table in the restaurant, there was no atmosphere. The service was incredibly slow and the waiters seemed inexperienced and clumsy. It took forever for the drinks to be delivered and then they came in dribs and drabs. The menu was quite varied and the food was tasty.

Rendezvouz restaurant was an iconic restaurant in Pondicherry when Vincent Mathias was running it. It was a place for great food and fantastic service. Today the upstart who runs this place has ruined the place. The fish my wife was absolutely rotten and would have ended up in a hospital. On top of that the absolutely rude of the manager... More

The rooftop cafe-bar has a very posh feeling especially due to the bouncer/security guard at the gate on the ground floor. The cafe-bar itself has fluidic and classy furniture all in white. It has live music till 10pm. And one can sing along due to the projection of the lyrics like karaoke. The food is awesome. Though i wouldn't recommend... More

A place that I have heard has great ambience and good food and was on my to do list on my first trip to Pondicherry was actually met with disappointment twice in two days..I wish that the management read this review to understand that their staff who was managing the main door for entrance didn't let us in for no...

Sorry about the disappointment. We are extremely busy on weekends. It is just a 100 cover restaurant. The place gets filled up within the first hour of opening the doors to our dear customers. It is purely first come ...first serve basis, and we do not take reservations on weekends. Once the restaurant is full, we close the front gates,... More
