“Great ambience in the quant town of Clarens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We've had breakfast and lunch here before and both times weve been extremely satisfied with the quality of the food. Artist's Cafe have very unique food plates to order, food combinations that I would never think of ... and it works! Also when sitting inside the restaurant if it is too cold or windy, you still feel part of nature and the mountainous surroundings as they have big glass doors, so wherever you are, inside or outside the ambience is just perfect!

“A place to while the time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant is conveniently situated on a corner of the Clarens Town Square. The food is good and the service equals that. Ideal spot to do people watching while the kids paly in a safe environment on an old farm tractor. In the same complex you can find fine art galerries.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The service was amazing. The place is just laid back and cozy, we had lunch there and it was perfect, like a home cooked meal. The home made Lemonade was just as my aunt made it. One could sit there the whole day actually. Well done!!!

We had lunch elsewhere and then sauntered over to have the best pancakes in Clarens.. very generous portions, good service and vibey atmosphere. I've been many times before and have never been disappointed.

“Just one word...Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

The service was awesome...the food divine...generous portions coupled with high quality makes them a winner. Subtle finishing touches are of utmost importance. ..receiving the bill in an antique cigarette case was an absolutely creative idea and in keeping with the decor. Well done, Matthews and Brian!
