the menu here offers great variety and i wish there were more of these cafe/restaurants as I would have gone more often for breakfast and other meals. we only found them in malls, which means travelling to them...unless you're there. but if you are - go. the food was simple and delicious and for example the volcano cake (hot with...

Good restaurant, excellent service, but would need to consider some policy regarding music background and volume of music which frequently too loud.

Been a regular at art caffe but recent experience left a bad taste. Husband ordered a beer which was flat but was replaced. Pizza was bland and vege burger was cold. The restaurant needs to look at the downturn of their quality and scrap some food or change their chefs.

Of course one ends up here at least once a week. The food is good and they maintain their standards; the service is always pleasant. I would suggest they improve their selection of salads though. I tend to hop over to the Tribe for a salad instead.

On balance, the staff are friendly and engaging. The coffee was okay but their pastries are always fresh and don't disappoint. On balance, my view is that this restaurant is generally overpriced.

The waitresses are very very rude and they don't really bother with the African customers because there's white people there...they pay so much attention to the white customers ...it's so pathetic ...plus their food is bad compared to other artcaffe restaurants in Nairobi .I love their chia firecracker but the one at theirs lacks taste completely...I would rather starve than...

Art Cafe is a great place to get a drink (or two) and grab a bike. Terrace is spacious and although looking at the parking lot gives a good feel. service is attentive and swift, but the music- superb collection of great tunes (at the time of our visit it was the acoustic vibe); No need to recommend, it already...

This visit took place in the evening, the mall was basically shut but Artcaffe was bustling. I indulged with a veggie pizza and chicken wings. They were succulent! The house red was really nice.
