After spending ten days in Tanzania (including Dar es Salam, Zanzibar, Pemba, and Chumbe Island), I rank this restaurant the best place for lunch! You have to try their panini with bacon, avocado, and Camembert cheese. The fresh salad included my favorite, pine nuts. OK, so the server tried to multi-task, but the ambieance is wonderful--sitting outside. Too expensive for locals, so you will see lots of ex-pats

Good range of starters, mains and desserts, including some good vegetarian options. Service is generally good, and service time 10-12 minutes; food is always fresh.

Busy at lunchtimes, but a good place to meet or hang out mornings and afternoons.

In a land which grows some of the best coffee in the world, most restaurants have terrible (stale, poorly prepared) coffee, but Picasso's coffee is terrific. Owners and staff take pride in it, and use a local grower and roaster.

I have just been on Safari to Tanzania and I was amazed to find a coffee shop like Picasso in the middle of Arusha. It is really an amazing restaurant/coffee shop run by Lee and her excellent staff and should not be missed if you are in the area. The food is fresh, homemade and delicious - what more can I say - make sure you make this part of your Safari experience.
