A place that offered internet and coffee optons, plus it looked really interesting with intricate wood work inside, so we had to hop in. In one of those moods to click fotos of each other we were busy shuttering away when the guy at the counter admonished us and said no photography inside.. The coffee and tea we ordered was yum, they delayed the french toast, but then it was delicious, so we forgot about the wait! :)
Probably in the most beautifull place in Pondicherry, with a fantastic sea view terrace, you will discover the seagull. It is a government restaurant, place is amazing, service is average, and food is so spicy that you can't know what you eat. I have tried chicken byriani, and another time some fish with gravy, it came with the same chilly taste. So it is a place just to have a drink, in front of the sea.
Favorite Dish: The best dish was the kingfisher beer !
In a corner, at he first floor, you can find a ugly place, but you will eat there a very good food. It is difficult to find in south India punjabi dishes, here, you will be given some which have the north indian taste with the south indian spices. If you look only for food, go, otherwise background is dirty and noisy.
Favorite Dish: Butter Chicken
Under a hudge pandal, you can get maybe the best tiger prawns and fish of pondicherry. I often go for week end in this place. You can taste red wine by only one glass, which easier for a single person. Food is tasty, not too spicy, team is helping you in the choice. A very good address for foreigners living in India, and for everybody !!!
Favorite Dish: Tiger prawn grilled with garlic and french fries.
Malabar fish curry.
This is such a special restaurant. The raw food theme is supremely different, in context of vegetarian of course. The food is prepared almost raw, at times you know its at least half boiled. Like the cereals or healthy rice. The veges are so tasty even they're prepared mostly raw. They mimic south indian style, so they all look very south indian thali. Try their mix vege drink. Healthy choice and have great variety for alots of cure.
Favorite Dish: Mango Idli!
food is good. you get authentic chettinad dishes here. you get value for money and the ambience is very simple and understated.service is very good and prompt.prices are reasonable and a great place to visit.there is variety of dishes ..one better than the other. for any traveller to pondicherry i highly recommend this place..it should be included in their itenary
Favorite Dish: fish fry n pepper chicken fry is simply awesome!
Went to Hotel Appuchi with my family yesterday.The waiters were rude and when we asked for a seat of four ,one of them asked us to go upstairs saying there was free space.We went upstairs and found the place to be full.So when i approached him again,he rudely told me he couldnt do anything.We patiently waited for a table and when the table cleared ,a group of men who were fully drunk walked in and sat in our table.These people were fully drunk and dressed only in a vest and shorts.Soon they started creating a nuisance and the manager looked helplessly.So we decided to walk out.A place to avoid going with family.Not a decent place.
While strolling around the French Quarter, we came upon Choco-La. With a name like that, of course, we had to check it out!
There was a huge variety of chocolates in all forms - mousse, truffles, pastries, cakes, candy, etc., etc. Everything is hand-made, fresh, and so nicely presented.
We each tried about 3 different things - all were delicious. My favorites were the truffles and the little Melting Pots, which were appropriately named!
If you come across Choco-La during your wanderings, stop in for something sweet! If you love chocolate, make sure to seek out Choco-La!!
At the far (south) end of Beach Road is Ajantha. Along with rooms on offer, they have a nice restaurant. Indoor AC seating and outdoor rooftop terrace seating overlooking the Bay of Bengal are available.
We were staying a couple of doors down and arrived in town very late. The nice people at Ajantha accommodated us for dinner. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the activity and the people walking along the Promenade.
We had the reshmi kebab and butter chicken along with rice and naan. Both dishes were filling and very good.
This is a great place for dinner - get there early for outdoor seating. They also have a separate bar area.
Open 24 hours and located between the Promenade and the Bay of Bengal, this is a fantastic place to sit and enjoy a cappuccino while watching the sunset. There are only a few tables outside so you'll need to get there early and jostle for a table but it's so relaxing once you sit.
It's great for people-watching as well - all of the food stalls pop up on the beach and hawkers start selling their wares as friends and families walk along the sand. (The hawkers don't bother you at the cafe.) Tried some less than average sweets but worth a visit for the sunset! It does get very windy so bring a sweater.
