“Enjoyable dining experience in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Artcaffes food is a good. However, I was annoyed by the fact that they ran out of burgers, burgers baps and guacamole at 8.00pm. They're one of the only places in Nairobi that you can get a Gourmet Burger.

Their Creme Brulee is to die for, unlike some other restaurants in Nairobi.

A big negative in their Westgate branch is the fact that they have poorly designed the inside seating area. It sounds like a market place . Its even worse when they grind coffee, use the coffee steamer or blend a smoothie/milkshake.

The service varies drastically with every visit.

“We are there twice a week.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We rate this place for service, we take our two yearold and always feel welcome which we really appreciate. Food is generally 3.5-4, portions can be a bit small, (especially the lasagne) and it needs to do breakfast better as I'm sick of the Spanish breakfast. However the cakes are fine and the bread is very good. Best food is the Pizza Roma.
