“Great little place with lots of buzz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Firstly the picture shown above is not the restaurant, it's a coffee bar in the same mall owned by the same company.

The Artcafe is actually a restaurant/cafe. We ended up there by accident but we were glad we found it.

It has a nice atmosphere, people meeting friends or reading a book on there own - nice place for everyone. Food was good, nothing fancy but good and reasonably priced. Service was good too,

“Relaxed eating in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This has gone from a successful coffee shop and cafe style restaurant to a chain you get excited about when you see one. Free internet, reliable and good food from breakfasts right the way through to late evening dinners. I have been around the menu now and keep coming back to their pizzas.True italian style thin crisp crust that is not overcrowded with too many toppings. This time I had the Lamb Kebab- They were good. Their bakery will serve you a real croissant and their cakes tend to be a bit more on the american side. Good ambiance to either a lunch time work meeting or sitting with friends. I spent 3 hrs there utilizing their internet after my lunch and they were comfortable with that.

“Very good place to have whatever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

In the style of a cafeteria, Art cafe gives you a nice menu to select from. The prices are a little high but the food is worth it.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We were on a short trip to Nairobi, and this was my favorite place to eat! I live in Africa, so I wasn't looking for the African style meal. It was great to have some delicious meals with a taste from home!

I would say, however, that if you are American, the pizzas (which were highly praised when I read the reviews before visiting) are not likely what you are used to. They are a very thin crust, with almost no sauce. However, there are so many other great dishes to choose from, I can't complain!
