This is a must for some great seafood. Go early as the place is always packed and you end up waiting for an hour for space

Unfortunately we chose to spend New Year's Eve here for dinner. It was one of the only places in Pondicherry where you didn't have to pay a set price for dinner and we had read good reviews. The ambience was nice but the food was so average and overpriced. The menu was a mix of Western and Indian and we... More

They have a good variety on the menu, but we settled for a seafood platter. The platter was enough for 3 of us. The quality of the food was also very good. Nice ambience with a lot of artifacts and catchy quotes put up on the walls. As with most places in Pondy the staff were friendly and responsive. Though... More

The Rendezvous serves great vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. No prior reservations are taken and please ensure to be there early if you want to be seated at a table of your choice.

The music and ambience is nice.. like a beach side restaurant... Price on the higher side, but its ok.. once in a while. Give this a try if... More

Best moussaka ever! I had dinner here one night, and it was active, but not crowded. The menu is varied and interesting. As a single traveler, one sometimes gets overlooked, but I had good service here.

We chose to have our first dinner in Pondi at this restaurant since we had heard a lot about this place. Little did we know that though this place is in India, foreigners are more welcome here than the natives. After keeping us waiting for more than half hour, the manager happily gave a table to a bunch of foreigners... More

Having heard much about Rendezvous, we were expecting a lot, especially since we saw that the place was practically full even before lunch hour began. We were seated promptly and drinks served soon. But our wait for the food was unending - no food in sight even after one hour of ordering. Each time we asked, we were told it... More
