We ordered take away for lunch and it was delicious. There was a good selection of food and I think we ate there at least half of our trip. Definitely try it.

Artcaffe is our usual weekend hangout. The one at oval is especially happening on a Friday night with live music and dancing! The food is great! Very consistent. We have been eating there for almost 4 to 5 yrs and the food quality hasn't changed. Would recommend the chicken wings..yummy!

The food quality is fair. The menu not changed for quite sometime. Waitress won't bring you a napkin if you have a capuccino/coffee. This is common on all Art Cafe in Nairobi

Visited the Westgate branch to lunch but the chicken pesto had an indescribable bitter taste. It was then replaced with grilled chicken and mash which had such poor presentation that I had to ask for a doggie bag. I decided to have a sangria while I wait for my ride and what was presented was not only with a misery... More

Wether you want to have a business meeting, drinks with your friends or a quick coffee...they have it all. Breakfasts are amazing (their spanish style breakfast is a favourite).

A very Kenyan and Hakuna Matata attitude in this lovely venture, which is what you need, especially when you're on a holiday and/or the day out after the night before place. The only criticism is that there was hardly stock in terms of drinks that we wanted to have, they didn't have in stock, which was a little bit of... More

My best dessert is their Tricolad choclate slice. 3 layers of choclate mousse and topped up with creamy mouse. Amazing!! Litchi Martinis are also a must have. ABSOLUTELY Delicious!

Artcaffe westgate....in my view...is one of the best of these cafes.. The ambience here and service is wonderful. I recommend the lamb lasagne ...which i realised isn't served in other artcaffes.

Thank Bertina K
