Villa Helena

Continental in Puducherry (Pondicherry)

One of Pondy's favourite culinary teams heads up this fashionable Continental-Indian eatery, launched in 2016 in a dreamy, lantern-lit patio engulfed by tropical gardens and lined with white-columned corridors. The menu leaps around the globe, delivering luscious creative salads alongside beef fillets, pastas, cheese boards, Indian classics and the odd fusion invention.
