Satsanga: ""If you only eat once in Pondi..."" Pondicherry Restaurant Tip by tayloretc

Pondicherry Restaurants: 29 reviews and 22 photos


This place is recommended by one guidebook with ?If you only eat once in Pondicherry, make it here.? I have to agree. We went for breakfast and decided to go back for lunch (and probably would have gone back for dinner if we hadn?t had to get back). The breakfast (eggs and toast) was well done, just the right amount, and nicely presented. The lunches (one fish with hollandaise sauce, one steak with blue cheese sauce) were excellent. The waiter also recommended a very good wine.

All the seating is outside in and around a courtyard. Most of it is covered by south Indian-style, high roofs, which keep out the sun but let in the breezes.

Note that the photo was taken very early during breakfast - the place gradually filled up and it was packed for lunch.
