Awful service. Quality and price are not related: plastic plates, paper napkins, normal food and service took 1 hour to be served. I will never recommend it.a

When I protested, the gentleman I presume was the manager came up and told me that we had received what we had ordered. I told him that I would get back to Bangalore and complain about the restaurant. His reply was... More

A nice rooftop restaurant in the adorable French quarter of Pondicherry, serving good Italian. We had spaghetti in tomato basil sauce & mushrooms baked in white sauce. Dessert was good- bread pudding drenched in whisky. The white decor is as soothing as the beautiful sea breeze wafting across.

Walked in through a back door of sorts where you can smell and see all the icky stuff happening to make you meal. No lift - so old people can forget about this place.
