Ambience is good

Great food, nice ambiance and the customer service needs to be up to speed though but the staff was great and warm. Looking forward to visiting again

I visited for the first time while killing some time. Good service, pleasant staff, great to sit outside on the patio. Nice coffee and good pizza. Reasonable value too.

Other than the racist allegations being slapped on this place every now & then, everything else seems to be just perfect. The ambiance, the food, the Coffee, the drinks and most important, the cakes (not to forget the Croissant :P). Conveniently located across almost all the top malls in Nairobi, Artcaffe is arguably one of the best places to relax... More

We celebrated Lilian's 27th birthday with a dozen friends. Everyone ordered a la carte. Some bottles of wine (rose, red and sparkling red) and the triple layer chocolate cake as birthday cake - which they had prepared on the fly. We had a great time, food was excellent and served for all at once. I love the atmosphere of that... More

Had some french wine which was served nicely chilled and tasted good. I ordered the Tagliatelle with prawns which was very tasty. the staff is very firendly and effiecient, maybe a bit too efficient in emptying the bottle of wine into the glasses. Overal a big plus and will for sure eat there again

Had dinner here with friends. Sat outside on a warm night and it was great (although a tad busy). The pizza's were the best, with dessert coming in at a close second.

This is my favorite place for early breakfast till late lunch in Nairobi, both solo and with others. Good place to meet other people, both business and leisure, as well. Quality is consistent across their branches and across time. I like the pizzas, the Egg Benedict, the schnitzels, the sandwiches, the fresh mango juice, etc. Espresso is mostly of good... More

with free wifi, its a good place to stop off for a breakfast while catching up with the rest of the world. The breakfasts are great value and the pumpkin pizza is great. The staff generally leave you be, and the coffee is good. A bit on the pricey side, but you get to see the world go by on... More
