The service is soooo bad at this place. We had to hail for a waiter and when he finally brought our order it was wrong. Telling him had him walking away while I was mid sentence. And I he pawned us off to some other waiters. What always brought me back to this place is the tricolad cake but it... More

One of the most infuriating slow restaurants I've been in. There must be 50 staff "working". None with any urgency or coordination. The food itself is very good as is the atmosphere.

Although a bit pricey -- lunch for 2 is easily $35 -- the quality of the food, of the staff, and the atmosphere can't be beat. I'm a particular fan of their perfectly prepared ground lamb kebabs with tabouleh; it's perfection as are their iced lattes made with Dormans coffee. They do get busy though and inside at Westgate, the... More

Amongst few places in Nairobi that I highly recommend. Love the food and the ambience. Though service level faces a challenge during peak hours, one can live with that compromise. All in all a great venue to meet and enjoy your meals.

Had great food and enjoyed the outside seating....but service needs help!!! We dinned here (5 pax) once in December 2012 and January 2013, and the verdict was unanimous; among the best in town today but can do much better.

Food is good but service is the worst in the city. We inevitably leave upset, so we stopped going. We rather grab a loaf or two at the counter and take it home.

Artcaffe Junction has the most rude, arrogant wait staff I have ever encountered. I had to wait for approximately 10 minutes before I finally gave up and called a waiter to order a drink. As I was waiting some caucasians came in sat right next to my table and were served immediately. Unbelievable! After getting my drink I was totally... More

Dinner at Artcaffe was a last minute plan, so my husband and I called it Date night. As always I love it there their food is consistent, staff was efficient despite being busy for a Tuesday night. Food was great, we both ordered the Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna which comes with a side salad, accompanied by their home made Chilli,which... More

Loved the menu and portions. Their service is a little slow probably because they have people moving in and out all the time. But whenever asked they have given a good description of the items on their menu.
