We eat there all the time, well used to. Never really had anything to complain about. Until 2 of my friends fell ill with food poisoning and were rushed to a hospital after what we thought was a pleasant dinner. Artcaffe Oval opened and I thought to give the new place a chance, once again we were greatly disappointed to... More

Artcaffe has a very good ambience setting. Their coffee is one of the best. Not much for kids to do so if you have a family with small children they will be bored here.

Best Chicken Schnitzel I have ever had. Great ambiance. Look forward to trying out the new location at The Oval.

Maybe I should give 5**** It is close. I found it a bit expensive but I am not used to Nairobi prices yet. Spinach ricotta lasagna was delicious, loved the ginger lemon tea and apple danish. Good wifi and fine service. Wine was served properly. Good place and no complaints!

Recently ate at Artcaffe Galleria. Food was good and reasonably priced. The service was somewhat questionable. The first waitress was excellent and then her replacement forgot about us. It has a very nice atmosphere.

Breakfast for a couple on Saturday 27 Sep 2014, at the ArtCaffe Crossroads. 1 x Eggs Benedict, 1 x Florentine. Egg yolks were almost white in colour, Hollandaise Sauce was weak and insipid, kind of just like a bit of runny butter, and the "toast" was merely warmed up bread. Complete lack of flavour, presentation, or approximation of what one... More

Artcaffe is our favorite hangout since we have been here, which is slightly over a year. Whether you are at Junction or Village Market or now at the Oval, they offer a very relaxing, comfortable and classy ambiance. The staff is very friendly and effecient, the food is very good and reliable- each visit would give you the same taste... More
