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.

Took my wife and her friend for dinner, the place is tastefully done, the meals are well done, the service was awesome. The waiter assisted me in picking the right wine, he was patient after my card was declined like three times. The service is great plus it is a nice place to relax especially at the balcony.

I had a delicious Mushroom and Cheese Crepe today at the Westgate Branch. Good serving portion too (I had to take away half!) I do like the ambience in the branches I have visited. Food can be a hit or a miss. Cappuccino is consistently excellent. Service? What can I say... Rarely what you'd wish or hope for but sometimes... More
