If you don't want pizza there a quite extensive menu to choose from. Picasso is not far from the centre of town. I've eaten here on quite a few... read more

We were taken here by our local partners and it is a really great spot. Not modern or glossy but has an old world charm. The owner left East Africa and lived in UK for a number of years but he decided to come home and has brought an interesting mix of food and ambience. The staff are very friendly.... More

Lovely, friendly and so unpretentious, Picasso is charming in its own way. The food is very good, by Arusha's standards it's excellent. We went several times and had many different choices from the menu. The king prawns was my favourite! Large, fresh and grilled perfectly! I also enjoyed All their "side" vegetables, they all appear to be organic and extremely... More

If I want a good meal I always go to Picasso cuz I know I will never be disappointed. This is the only place in town where I feel secured to eat fish (the grilled Tuna and the sushis are so good !). Picasso is also the best place in town to have pizza, salads, fresh passion juice, cheesecake... actually... More

I absolutely love Picasso! The food is amazing and I love that they have lots of variety on the menu- if I lived in Arusha I'd go there every day. Give the sushi and pizzas a go- you won't regret it.

Great people that run the place. Food is ridiculously awesome. You would have thunk that primo sushi would be in Arusha!? I didn't...oh, but I am so happy as I live here now and will eat it every time I visit Arusha. Cool outdoor seating as well. Portions are HUGE - great value - you could share an entree easily....
