“Average food, spotty service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food at artcaffe isn't terrible, but neither is it anything special. The service can be either really good or really poor. I think it just depends on your luck.

They do have free wifi though and it's a nice place to work if you're looking for a cafe setting.

“Perfect experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The food and ambience was excellent. I actually set up my laptop and worked all day while listening to a jazz band that played later in the day.

“Very good place for lunch or to work with you computer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I often to the one at Nakumatt Junction. I like the outdoor seating, but it also has a very nice indoor. By the way, the one at the Tribe Village is really really nice, but just further away.
Food: I sincerely had one the best pizzas ever in this place. The rest of the food is between ok and good. I did not like the Nicoise salad at all, but that was the only thing I avoid carefully now.
Other than that, it's an excellent place to go if you need to work on your laptop, as there is wi-fi internet and power sockets everywhere, indoor and outdoor.

“Avoid the so called "Creme Brulee" Dessert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I ordered a creme brulee , got one, but after i already swallowed 50% of the bowl, I just noticed strange tiny black dot in the cream (like fungus). We spent 20 minutes with 2 managers and 1 waiter giving me 3 different versions... Personally , I think the cream was kept for more than 3 days (creme brulee cannot be used after 3 days even if kept in the fridge) and was almost spoiled... So disappointing when that place was recommended by more that 3 colleagues and the atmosphere is cool...
