the restaurant has a great ambience. Love the food a lot. Great variety of tasty food such as pizzas, fish and chips, salad, and chicken shnitzel. Would recommend sitting outside, drink beer, and order some amazing food. Only problem is the staff isnt that friendly.

Artcaffe is the place for good food, great coffee, and free wifi! Many times I've taken work and sat for hours getting stuff done. The staff is friendly and doesn't rush me off, providing good service the whole time I'm there. Definitely a favorite here in Nairobi, and I'm so glad it's here!

An ok place to relax after shopping...how wrong can you go, sipping coffee at a great mall? The problem is, the latte was not very good, too weak, lacking espresso flavor.My friends had non-coffee frappe type vanilla drinks, which they loved, but my need for a yummy tasting caffeine "high" was not satisfied!

You have a choice of unique items from the food menu. Not your typical hang out. Like the outdoor feel at both Galleria and Westage. The food is fresh and sumptuous.
