The service was exemplary not sure if it's because it was a Sunday evening....The food is great and is served in good quantity. The ambience is good though we were seated right at the door since we were 4 and we preferred indoor seating. Overall,I loved it.

Real good milk shakes, breakfast was good. Variety of dishes, we enjoyed the desserts; took home Black Forest Cake which was delicious. The blueberry cheesecake was just okay.

The atmosphere is good, and coffee is not overpriced, although quality is just OK. The cappuccino cake is good.

There are many seats both outside and inside. The staff behaves in a service minded way. The food tastes good and the atmosphere makes you want to come back.

The staff here are well trained and friendly. The menu is well thought out a little pricey when compared to competitors. The chicken Shawarma wrap was a little on the oily side, even if it was Olive oil that much is a no no. The great staff though gave me an overall great experience.

Not so family friendly, you really have to be careful on selection because what you see is not what you may get. Good salads but limited choice on steaks. The cuisine is mixed which is a plus. If you are meeting for business then this is ideal

You find Art caffe on many different places in Nairobi, I have been to this one and the one in Westgate. The menu is the same, but I found the vibe more relaxed and laid back at this one. Overall, the food was the same as at Westgate...Maybe a bit better!? Good food to reasonable prices.

The service at this particular Artcaffe isn't the best. The waitress didn't get the order right, and it took longer than necessary to get the right order. Tea was cold by the time they brought it out. The waitress wasn't attentive enough to refill or enquire as to how the meal was going.

Thank fdarboe
