“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Art Cafe Westgate :( was my favourite place in Nairobi, but now that it is not there any more :( I wish to say that all other Art Cafes are equally good. The food is always very good - they follow the same standards and I have never been unpleasantly surprised there. Their coffee is also very good; staff are pleasant and friendly. Art Cafe is by far the best value for money in Nairobi. Highly recommended to all long and short time stayers... I have been their regular guest - family visit, with friends even solo - and one does not feel awkward sitting there all by him/her self.

“Art Cafe is the Place in West Gate Mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Art Cafe IS the place to have a fantastic evening having delicious western food and enjoy the crowd too on the West Gate Mall.

Haunted by Europeans and Indians this is a great place to spend your evenings.

“Delicious Food, Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We went to the location at the Village Market in Gigiri on a Friday night. The restaurant was definitely crowded but we were seated almost immediately. Our waiter was very attentive and yet, not 'in your face' and our food arrived promptly. The ambiance of the place is extremely relaxing and the drinks and food are reasonable priced. There is something for everyone which makes choosing what to eat both a little confusing at times and also a lot of fun.

The best part of our visit was that we weren't rushed at all. We finished our meal early but lingered for over an hour and a half over dessert and not once did we get the impression that we were wanted out. Definitely a good place to try out.

“Outstanding Place for Everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Excellent location for meeting friends, family, business partners etc.. It will be tough not having this place due to the random act of madness that occurred at WestGate.
