“Charming European-style Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We stumbled on this place aftyer looking for Zydeco, which no longer exists. My wife wanted fresh shrimp, and the owner whipped up a dish especially for her. They were huge and delicious. And the margaritas were great too!

“Best pizza (best everything) ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

Walking on "tercer mundo" street we came across this small restaurant/gallery, we never thought we were going to have such an amazing experience. the owner is such an entertaining guy and the food Oh My Good, honestly the best pizza ever. thin and crunchy. Not only the pizza but everything we ordered was supreme... even the cilantro dressing was to die for. If you are ever in San Pancho, this Restaurant is a must.
Oh and the art is also breathtaking.

“Popular, and kinda cute but not that great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Lively place, but uninteresting food. Some entrees are made up of frozen seafood items... Menu items do not reflect what's actually in stock..

“Great cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Cafe Arte has an extensive menu of mexican fovourites and others from further south. On the night we were there we enjoyed an excellent Paella with fresh mussels, clams, shrimp and chicken. The rice had an excellent saffron flavour without being overpowering. They make their own bread and serve a tasty salsa of jalapenos in olive oil with grilled home made bread. A great place to stop in and enjoy the ambience
