Lovely interesting place to visit worth going out of your way. Lovely and warm, plenty of seats, Good food and beverages, great turnover of people, lots of original artwork on display in the little shop to purchase. Very exciting place to see.

We visited the place on saturday, had lunch. Cafe was very busy and vibrant. We found some interesting artworks and took photo... it was more than a cafe, but foods there were not that special. My egg bene was not good as expected... looks ok, disappointed at taste... especially texture of potato. Coffee was good.

Enjoyed the pieces on display and will return every few years to see the changes as it is a work in progress.

L'Arte was recommended by a friend and we were so glad to get this recommendation. It offers a neat location just out from Acacia Bay and the art work / sculptures are delightful. Food is wholesome and good servings along with being fresh - very impressive.
