food was alright but could be so much better, especially the desserts; nothing to write home about. The service was okay and any problems were quickly resolved. Some of the prices,however, are quite exorbitant.

Loved the burgers and the portions were also pretty decent. Great service. Definitely loved the ambience.

I am sorry to say that the smoothie was watered down, as they put too much ice. All in all, was all worth it.

Like any other art cafe in terms of food selection. Food is good. Best bread in town. Outdoor seating is nice. Service can vary depending on how busy it is. Friday night they have a live band playing salsa music and that's when it is best. Dance floor is poorly designed, though, it is at the entrance of the only exit to the outdoor seating, meaning everyone is trying to walk through. Parking is confusing since a new road is being built it is considered city parking to park in front, therefore you can have youre car clamped which is not the best experience anyone wants to have. Ill suggest people park at their underground parking. Overall the best place to go to for coffee on a cold evening.

Really good food. A bit expensive, but well worth the price. It's also one of the only major food outlets open all night on Saturdays, so it's also got that going for it.

The roast chicken with mashed potatoes is my favourite.I always order it when I there.

Fridays are the best cause of Salsa night and my all time fav cocktail is the classic margarita.I dont order anything else :-)

I was there last Saturday for the Made of Taste Festival courtesy of Singleton and the food was amazing, I had the Kebab Lamb and some mashed potatoes on the side (The best Mashed Potatoes I've ever had!) The meal went very well with my singleton cocktails preferably the Mint tulip cocktail!!! Great food! Amazing cocktails and Perfect Ambiance! :)

I am a sucker for the bread and brownies from Art Cafe. I love the ambiance at the Oval (who doesn't) but I must admit, the services are absolutely disappointing at their Oval branch. We waited over an hour before we finally received our drinks, who is going to order a meal after that? Not me. I drank and left grumpy. I understand the crowd can be big, but one of the most important things in a restaurant (other than the food) is the customer service. But still love the bread and brownies and their Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne (which I haven't had at the oval of course).

I just love the ambience. Smooth jazz , good food and awesome service . I love their cocktail hour since you get delicious cocktails for half the price, and don't get me started on their chicken wings (slurp), they are finger- licking good.
