Average food service not to bad, I suppose it was typical Shopping Mall stuff, the house white coffee was above average.

“Love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Great atmosphere. Good decor. Food is nice. Salads are good. Coffee drinks are very good. Desserts are nice. Good selection and everything I have tried has been tasty. Both patio and indoor seating. Cafe is on the 2nd floor so patio overlooks the entrance of Village Market. Service is good and servers are friendly and prompt.

Feels like a little piece of Europe or America in the middle of Nairobi....

“Great food and delicious drinks served at a leisurely pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

I enjoyed both lunch and brunch here (at the branch at The Oval). The food at Artcaffe is some of the best European-style food I've had in Nairobi - the prawn starter is amazing and the pizzas are delicious (if you like spicy food, go for the one with the green chilies). The drinks are also excellent, with delicious fresh fruity smoothies and inventive cocktails. Unfortunately the service is best described as leisurely - it's not the place to eat when you have a meeting in the afternoon. Taking payments for larger parties is a particular issue (it took nearly 45 minutes to settle our bill). If some of the superfluous waitstaff were redeployed behind the tills to help the two people handling payments it would make a huge difference.

“Amazing food, great ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Try the prawn appetizer. Yum! Also you must have the snapper, which is great. My kids love the pizzas.
