Really a great place to have that special celebration - real wood everywhere, great big mango tree...good food. Expensive - sure. But then its not an everyday kind of place. Sea food is good. Cocktails were bit weak.

We head here for a good lunch since we were in Pondicherry. Manage to order our dishes, and we waited for our food. One by one dishes were coming out mainly the... More

This is a part of the hotel Le Dupleix and this place had great food to offer. This is one place where you could just stay calm and sip as many drinks you want since you know that the staff is capable of handling you and taking care of you. This is a relatively a small place and this offers... More

Delicious food in a beautiful setting. With a warm breeze wafting across the area, the open courtyard setting was quite lovely on a Feb evening. The staff were quietly attentive, going about the tasks of providing lovely food without intruding on our conversations etc.. All the courses were reasonably price and after the joyful hustle and bustle of most of... More

This place was wonderful. The hotel itself was beautiful. Lovely running water in the courtyard area with big... More

i was amazed as i walked into Le Dupliex for the first time. The large doors open into a beautiful courtyard shaded by this huge mango tree. I loved their service and attention to detail. I had planned for a dinner for two and they helped us select the wine, our order and recommended what we should look at. You... More

In Indian terms, this is an expensive place for dinner but the food is good. Service is excellent. You can choose from Indian or European dishes - I cannot comment on the European as why come to India to not eat Indian. One unusual opportunity is the chance to try Indian wine - quite good actually. Dinner with wine for... More
