“Better than many”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Great service, good food. Healthy servings.
Try the Kamp coffee. I went back for more. The scones are plentiful and value for money.

“Nice setting, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

The restaurant is part of a beautiful sandstone centre offering a gallery, shoe shop, deli and decor shop which forms a really nice setting. We were recommended to try the "rooster koeke" which are basically a form of a bread roll baked on an open flame filled with your choice. We had mince and cheese. Delicious! The rest of the menu looked good but the cakes on display were really hard to resist but we were stuffed from the "rooster koeke".

“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!
