The food is tasty and the service excellent. Not much in terms of ambience though, and also a bit overpriced.

We went to the restaurant without anybody's recommendation. The ambiance is good, so is the food. The staff is also very courteous.

We stayed in Richmond. So we had most of the breakfast and one lunch in Bistro. Food quality was good. And Service also excellent. But when you are in Pondi where so much variety to eat, we didn't spent much time eating here. there are lot better options in Pondi
