I went to Cafe des Arts in the evening on the day that I arrived in Pondicherry, The place has such a relaxing aura! And the food was amazing, and the people were really kind. Also, if you're a dog person, you'll love this place.

Love the interiors, the french lady who owns it and the food was very nice. The place is very well located, has a beautiful small shop with very interesting designs. Kids loved being there because of Lili the DOG.

I wish I could give a lower rating. They literally asked us to empty the table while we were eating, moved us to small bar chair and took away our food. I have never faced such inhumane behaviour anywhere else.More
