Where to eat European food in Pondicherry: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 29, 2019 Leida Jutras

Discover Restaurants offering the best European food in Pondicherry, Union Territory of Pondicherry, India. Pondicherry’s bougainvilleas, crumbling cathedrals and leafy boulevards might occasionally make you wonder if you’re in the south of France instead of a former French colony. But it's also unmistakably Indian, with colorful festivals, the famous monument of Aayi Mandapam, and the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Quiet beaches stretch north and south from town, good for swimming and sunrise strolls.

DisDis & Co

Reviewed By Akshaya S

DisDis & Co is very close to Dupleix statue - nearly the heart of Pondicherry tourist map. The place is nicely setup in a courtyard with sitting at different zones - outsize, half covered and fully A/C area. But the food lack a bit of variety. Actually, it was more of regular food offering nothing too unique. Food taste was good though - we tried sizzlers. Service was courteous and prompt.

Nice place to have dinner with family. Ambiance and preparations were good. Only thing one should be careful in ordering north Indian dishes, we experienced that the Mughlai Chicken was no where near a Mughlai dish. Rest dishes were prepared and served well.

Cafe des Arts

Reviewed By slowtrav

The ambiance is the biggest attraction - seating is spread throughout the rooms of an old colonial home and garden. There are also clothing and slippers and accessories for sale. Croissants were quite good, eggs were unimpressive as was the coffee. They also have a non dairy soy milk option for coffee.

New Banana Cafe &Restaurant

Reviewed By KarenOn

We came here for brunch. They have a kind of hippy/rasta vibe. If you like your coffee strong, I would advise against the coffee as we found it a bit weak. Maybe going for a tea would be a better idea! We took a basil lemonade and a ginger and lemon juice and both were divine. They have a real fresh feel to them! We had two brocolli quiches as well which were AMAZING. For dessert we shared a banana and cinnamon crepe which was also lovely. If you feel like having a healthy brunch I would highly recommend this place. The service is a little on the slow side so don't come with expectations that you will receive your food very quickly. The staff are all lovely and very attentive.

Coromandel Cafe

Situated in a quaint old building in the heart of the French Town, Coromandel Cafe serves continental food, high tea and freshly baked pastries and desserts. The space has both indoor and outdoor seating, a bar and a CMYK Book Store.

Reviewed By ademontbel

After everything we heard about this place, nothing was special about it... Although the food was good, there was nothing unique and it was pricier than other newer spots, service was good but too slow, ...There is a lot of competition in Pondi now and we felt this one has to raise the bar to stay and live up to its marks.

Late evening dinner. Ordered Cesar salad, Steak with Red wine sauce and a plate of Momos. Nice salad with juicy chicken. Soft tender steak with good tasting sauce and perfect French fries. The momos was not like Delhi style momos, but stil nice tasting. All topped up with very friendly staff that made you feel more than welcome.

Reviewed By Jshanghai

We had dinner at la Villa Shanti earlier this week. While the location is a nice court yard setting - the courtyard has been redone in modern style. Service was helpful and attentionate, menu and food was reasonably good - but not exceptional (see posting on La Villa). Prices as everywhere in Pondichery were very reasonable.

Crepe in Touch

It's a Café/Crêperie/Boutique with a kids area (books, games). We serve sweet and savoury crêpes, quiches, big salads, cakes, hot and cold drinks.

Reviewed By 530abhishekp

The food at Crepe in Touch is simply amazing! We had a savory (Ouessant) and a sweet (Salted Butter Caramel) crepe, both of which were really good. But the surprising highlight was the Carantec salad. This was probably the freshest and one of the best salads we’ve ever had. It looks like any run of the mill salad dish but tastes awesome. The ambiance is lovely and laid back. The host and staff are friendly as well. This was without doubt the best café that we visited during our short trip. A must visit for any food lover!Thank you so much!

LA VILLA

Reviewed By ademontbel

Everything was delicious, as expected, but the crab soup was just amazing yet simple. Also tried the snapper and the slow cooked lamb leg, both fabulous dishes. Book in advance for this place which deserves to be the number 1 (authentic) French restaurant in Pondi , from the quality of the food to the service and atmosphere. One of my two fav places in town actually. The other one is just around the corner (Shanti) for lunch. Keep Villa for diner and Shanti for lunch... enjoy
