Forget any other café/coffee house, Artcaffe's got everything: lovely ambience, friendly staff, amazing food and a therapeutic selection of music all day everyday. This establishment has a very chill vibe making it perfect for any casual meet-up with friends or business lunches/dinners with associates or colleagues. Am not a pastry kind of person and haven't tried any of the baked... More

The best thing about Artcaffe is the bread on sale just outside the entrance to the restaurants (it's hard to get good, fresh bread in Nairobi) and the free wifi inside. Food is okay but overpriced. Decent enough chain of cafes although I've never been back to the Westgate branch since the terror attack a few years ago. Many people... More

Start with the best thing there. The tricolade! This dessert is amazing. Other dish of note is the prawns swimming in butter. Love it. Otherwise the food generally is ok. The bread however, looks great but is at best, diabolical. Venue is decent. Service, along with the rest of Kenya, is poor.

There was an apology which i thought was good, but I wouldn't expect poor service at a place like this especially given the prices you pay at... More

The location and the ambiance was great but can't say the same for the food. The service was quick and didn't get to wait long to get our food, had the salmon bagel which was terrible. I might visit one more time and maybe try something else from the menu before I write this place off.
