Note spelling is 'La Terrasse' - it took ages to find it on TA with dodgy net connection in the guest house! Due to really bad wifi in most places in India and being busy since returning back to London. This review is for our visit on the evening of 1/12/16. Edited and submitted 8/2. Hopefully still relevant. We three... More

This intimate garden restaurant is located on a quiet street off the Main Drag in Rodney Bay. The food is French with an island touch, and the service is relaxed, professional and friendly. We enjoyed our calamari starter and my husband loved his hangar steak entree. I had a delicious pork tenderloin. Our desserts-house-made chocolate mousse and tropical flavored ice... More

Looks like cheap restaurant as soon as I entered inside restaurant, feels like restaurant for daily waged worker. I was there for breakfast; and I was the only customer even it took them around half hours to serve. Food was so costly and quantity is less and inferior food. My son denied to eat their lemon sugar pancake, he told... More

Four of us have visited the restaurant after seeing various reviews but all to our disappointment. Ambiance: The ambiance was average. There wasn't anyone to help you with a table or at least arrange some chairs. There were abundant presence of mosquitoes & insects. Service: It was in the worst condition. No one's bothered to give a menu card &... More

The tables are well covered by the thatch roof, but it feels al fresco, and tropical. The food turned out to be tasty and simple. Fans turn over each table. This is a pleasant low cost restaurant, without fuss.

In case you're lost about what to eat and want to settle for the mundane and without racking your brains then this is the place. Good food and good staff. Amazed by their offering of wood fire cooked pizza. Location is good too.

The restaurant serves authentic french and continental food with fresh juices. It does not have a bar. The outdoor sitting is very comfortable. Must visit.

the atmosphere is simple, but nostalgic of the early French era in Pondicherry. Food is of high quality, but prices are incredibly cheap. Smoking is allowed in the front tables. It's near to the famous Park guest house of Sri Aurobindo ashram.
