The best thing about Cafe Arte is the service: The woman who served us was friendly and obviously enthusiastic about her job. Terrific! The food, though, was really nothing special and, seeing as this is Mexico, very expensive.

I had mussels cooked with onions. The onions kind of overwhelmed the flavour of the mussels, but the dish was fine.

My partner had gnocchi with a creamy tomato sauce. The gnocchi were hard and tasteless (really poor quality), while the sauce looked like the cream had curdled. The dish didn't look good or taste good. It was really very poor.

Together with a drink each and one coffee, the bill came to 430 pesos. That's remarkably expensive for Mexico and very expensive for what we ate.

although it is owned by a friend of mine, I fell in love with it's food before we were acquainted.
I love the homemade pastas, the deserts, and beer and wine selection.
many cerebral board games are available for use, which prompts you to meet more nice people.
the multi lingual staff is quite exceptional, and new culinary wonders are abound.
the music, when it happens is delightful, the atmosphere forever leaving you with a happy heart.
gracias Humberto y Cecilia, mucho te amo!

HI, we love this place. The food and service are outstanding. The owners are great folks and we visit with them when we are there. Can't say enough for the pizza and pasta. Need to try this if you are in the area.

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!

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.
