Visited during a solo trip and spent a very relaxing couple of hours enjoying the 7-course tasting menu for dinner. Really high quality food, beautifully presented, nice chilled surroundings and staff were attentive but also friendly and relaxed. Highly recommend!

If you are in Pondicherry and would love have a serene quite dinner in a beautiful ambiance with unparalleled food (we are vegetarians). We had our anniversary dinner while we were vacationing. The lighting was perfect. Outdoor weather was nice. Staff was v welcoming. Food...was amazingly fresh. The salad ( walnut ricotta) and the soup ( gazpacho) were amazing. The coconut curry served in a fresh coconut was unique. Highly recommended.More

Enjoyed a light and relaxing lunch in the tranquil garden. Had a moringa soup, a refreshing cucumber juice and a sweet apple tart.

We were here for lunch. While we were late for tasting menu, we were still served with full explanation and details of all dishes. The plating was MasterChef style and food was excellent.

We had lunch in this beautiful and quiet restaurant very nicely located. The 7 courses set menu was a great gastronomic journey, an outstanding experience which I recommend to anyone who would like to taste and enjoy the French Art de Vivre.

This restaurant was in the most romantic setting, the 7 course taster meal was top quality, the use of flavours were put together expertly, I cannot fault anything. Wonderful staff, it’s a must visit if you are in the area.

Absolutely delicious. If you are in Pondicherry give Chef Michel and Server Bruno a visit. You must reserve. Try and reserve before you arrive to the city. It fills up fast. You will NOT regret it. The best meal I have had in awhile. Chapeau...Michel et l’équipe de La Villa.More

Indians should avoid. Refused to seat us not just today but they were “entirely booked” for tomorrow as well. Not for the two Caucasian ladies though. Immediate seating for them. All this when we can see empty tables. Exactly there kind of place which should...b avoided.More

Dear Madam/Sir, The majority of our guests are Indians so the description you made is not appropriate. Yes the open garden tables were empty and not used during these last 6 days due to heavy rains in Pondicherry. We are sorry of that Regards Team...More

What a lovely calm setting for amazing food. I had the same thing twice - both times for lunch. It is simple foods done exceptionally well. The staff is kind and lovely. Recommending it and coming back for more hopefully :)

We came for the 7 course taster menu. The food was good, although some courses were a little too experimental for my taste (eg cauliflower ice cream). However it was all very beautifully presented and cooked well. La Villa is a beautiful building with friendly...and efficient staff. I would visit again but maybe choose the a la carte.More
