“A quaint and pleasant dining experience”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

It's hard to spot this peaceful place hidden away in the Main Road next to some Tacky Night Club.

They are famous for their Wood-Fire pizzas and Indo-Chinese as well.
They are somewhat lacking in their Indian Food section.
But the pizzas and fresh juices do make up for it.

We tried the Maize Wood Fire Pizza (Maize, Bell Peppers, Tomato, Olives, Cheese)
It was a thin crust, topping heavy, melt in your mouth pizza which was simply devoured in the next minute and a half.

Note : Do stay away from the papaya juice (Sometimes they use overly ripe fruit)

The service is quite efficient for such a small place, the waiters are very friendly and accommodating even if they are handling a big crowd.

I would recommend atleast one mandatory visit to this place if you're in Pondicherry.

“Costly but decent place to eat with your family and friends”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Had a wonderful experience when I visited this restaurant with my friends. The food is awesome. They had very delicious chinese food and pizzas. Though the staffs were a bit weird but that can be neglected once you dive into your food plate which will just not fill your stomach but your heart too.

“Pathetic!!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We stood here for 5 mins as one after the other asked us to wait for "1 min" and realised our patience was being tested.. I would probably understand if the place was overcrowded and if these so called waiters were busy running around but that wasn't even the case. They tell 1 min and then avoid seeing you so you don't ask them again, bravo, excellent start and end.

Not even that 1 star. Try your luck!!

“Yummmmmmyyyyyy!!!!”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The food here is just amazingly awesome. We make it a point to go here everytime we go to pondy. The french dishes and the Vietnamese dishes are fantastic. The entire quiet, laid back and lazy ambiance of the restaurant puts you in a really nice relaxed mood. It has a shack like appearance, but 3 star service! The waiters are quite friendly to the patrons and they help you in choosing dishes if you are new to this type of cuisine.. The best thing to have over here is the Pizza, which is made in a wooden oven and that just adds well to the taste. Make sure you have cash, cause they do not accept cards here. The entire variety of the menu is diverse, so you can take people who just want to have a fried rice and some Chinese gravy, at the same time people who want to try a new cuisine can also come! Perfect for a romantic dinner if your date is'nt too high strung but just wants to laze around with you!!

“Yummy yummy and no gippy tummy!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

La Terasse was a restaurant we visited several times during our week in Pondicherry. Everything we tried was great! Anima who owns the place is around and extremely helpful. An animal lover, it was like finding a kindred spirit! Though if this make you uneasy, I must point out you won’t find any 4-legged creatures around the place . Try the salads, which I was told were safe (no tummy bugs here) and the yummy wood oven pizzas. The week before we visited about 20 odd kids from a Mumbai school had been. The feedback from the accompanying teachers is that Anima and her staff manage the exuberant bunch so well and it is so safe to have a meal there that La Terasse is a fixture on their itinerary.
