Vidi, vici, and we repeated the experience , a second time. Weekends are crowded, be prepared to wait,well worth it. We had excellent service,superb food and incredible deserts. The banana flambé was divine. Ambience 5star. Music super. Its a small place so one hopes that they will expand some day. The best two dinners we had in our five days... More

Was over to this restaurant in one of my visits to pondy. Wondeful place with good food. Refreshing people and nice lighting that makes you want to just want in more often then you think. Must try.

This is the second time I have been to the restaurant and the first after they shifted and must say that we loved the food each time. The food is very tasty and seafood is fresh and the place is a good value for money especially if you are going as a large group.

Rendezvous is located hardly 300 meters from rock beach. We visited the place without a reservation and suffered. We were told to wait for 20 minutes so we just took a stroll down the beach and came back 15 minutes later and as promised, were given a table and that too according to our liking even though it was a...

Mainly I liked the attitude a that middle age chap who requested us to wait and got us a table in 10 min. He was concerned, thou his... More

One thing that stood out was they had a lot of offer for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. They have a good collection of wines and spirits and do not miss out on happy hours from 6.30Pm to 7.30 PM everyday. Have to eat at this place when you are in Pondichery. Happy Dining!

Ate here twice. Once had Indian food ( a real Goan pork Vindaloo, not the artefact served in UK restaurants), and once a steak. (Well after 2 weeks of eating Indian food I needed a break!). Food was good. Service was good. Recommend you arrive early as it fills up quite quickly.

If you have been to Goa and spent time in cafes such as Lila, this place is exactly like that. The staff and service are phenomenal. the food and decor are so memorable. Lovely. One visit is not enough to do justice to the food. The place really is very welcoming and is in a great area.

Dear All This restaurant is in a makeshift arrangement and needs to work upon a lot. Do not try their fixed menu as it will always be the same. The shrimp salad is mediocre and garlic bread is not french.... Moreover the canteen look has to go...Not good value for money. Go only if you have no other choice. The... More
