Reviewed 8 July 2014

Palais de Mahè is a great place not just for the food but also the ambience & the friendly staff. A good choice of Indian & continental food. Great value.

“Great ambiance and good food!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The hotel is easy to find as u ll come across it when u walk down to the beach on bussy street. The restaurant is on the second floor. The staff r very friendly and eager to help at every step. The proximity to the beach helps,as u can enjoy the cool breeze from the sea along with the excellent ambiance of the place.we had prawn tandoori for starters which was gr8. We had chicken stuffed with couscos and seafood trio which were just okay.we also had some french fish preparation that wasnt so good.For dessert we had chicku pannacotta which was just awesome. On the whole its a gr8 place for a date or a quite meal with a good friend.

“Very good”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stayed here and ate dinner one night on the terrace. The food was excellent and the ambience terrific. They have a nice selection on the menu but are also open to making something specific on request. Between us, we had pork chops, appam/stew, and pea-mint soup, all of which were really good. We also had breakfast there three days in a row without getting bored! A wide selection was available including bacon and sausages along with other regular south indian fare such as masala dosa which my companion really enjoyed.

“Good food, at premium price”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

I with my family visited this place for dinner. Food was very good.
Pros: Good ambience, and you can opt for chef's advice while ordering it. Good to check for a change.
Cons: Big no for those looking for a budget hotel and entring over here. The prices on the premium level for any menu.
