Visited here very frequently and always found it busy. Very vibrant with a great atmosphere. This was very close to the hotel I stayed in hence was very convenient. Food was good and portions generous

Had dinner at Artcaffe last week in Nairobi and thought the food was quite fine. I chose a Thau red chicken curry and the dish was quite flavourful and authentic. I would go there again when in Nairobi.

We were at art oval on Friday 6th june 2014,our drinks order took 55mins to come and food took over an hour and when it finally arrived it was cold and stale. I wouldn't recommend art oval to anyone and I think it's over rated.

If you wish to get some of "urban ambience" in Kenya - Art Caffe is THE Place to go to (in Kenya there are many garden caffes and restaurants with completely different ambience). Food has always been (in my 4 years in Kenya, and more than 100 visits to all Art Caffes in Nairobi) of the same, very good quality,... More

I was a regular visitor at the Art Caffe at the Westgate Mall and have now visited their new outlet at the Oval. I have tried the Penne Arrabiata at several restaurants in Nairobi but must say that the Penne Arrabiatta at the Art Caffe is the best I have had. Their home fries are also excellent. Overall, the restaurant... More

I've been to Art Caffe a few times to see if the next time I'll like what I ordered. I have yet to find a dish that not only sounds delicious but also tastes delicious. The menu looks great and has lots of delicious options, but their recipes are definitely not what you'd expect in a nice, supposedly French bistro...... More

We were regular patrons of the Artcaffe restaurant in Westgate Mall for over 3 years before the terrorist attack last September caused the restaurant to be closed. We particular enjoyed the jazz group that played in the restaurant on Wednesday evenings. We assumed the new Artcaffe restaurant in the Oval at Westlands was intended to replace the one in Westgate... More

Average food service not to bad, I suppose it was typical Shopping Mall stuff, the house white coffee was above average.

Great atmosphere. Good decor. Food is nice. Salads are good. Coffee drinks are very good. Desserts are nice. Good selection and everything I have tried has been tasty. Both patio and indoor seating. Cafe is on the 2nd floor so patio overlooks the entrance of Village Market. Service is good and servers are friendly and prompt. Feels like a little... More
