“Over Rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Art Caffe just never seems to live up to its reputation for me! It seems to miss the mark as a resturant due to its public roadside placement. However it does not get it right as a chic trendy place to be seen either. The prices are high end and the furnishings are not, the chairs and tables are cheap and rickety. The wine list is extensive but the cellars are empty.
An expensive quick bite on the run- yes, a choice of place to stop and enjoy a pricey meal- no

“Good for a relaxing lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This nice restaurant is located in the Junction Mall near the Dagoretti Corner matatu stage. We ate there several times during our stay in Nairobi. The atmosphere is very relaxed. There is outdoor, covered seating. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The menu is quite varied with many unique selections. We had excellent salads and a nice chicken sandwich. Don't expect traditional African fare (ugali or nyama choma), but the food is good and fresh. The clientele here is a lot of expats as opposed to Africans so this would not give you a true sense of an Kenyan restaurant, but an excellent place to grab a bite.
