On our way to the beach one morning while in San Pancho my wife and I decided to sit down for breakfast. I had a Mocaccino which was wonderful and she had an excellent Chai Tea. We both had the Juevos Rancheros which we very tasty and elegantly presented. The waitress also happened to be the owner and she was... More

After touring through busy Sayulita we arrived in San Pancho and discovered Cecilia and her Cafe Arte. She is a charming hostess who served us a delicious lunch. Her husband is an incredible artist so we were entertained, wined and dined surrounded by his amazing work. Thanks so much!

Thank you Cafe Arte for a fabulous lunch! It was nice to take a drive from Punta Mita, grab coffee’s in Sayulita, swim, surf, and then go up to San Franciso for the afternoon (what a cute little town). Café Arte offered amazing lunch options, and we enjoyed relaxing on the sidewalk late afternoon. We stayed so long we also... More

We go about 30 minutes just to sit and have a cold beer and wonderful food! My husband says it's the best pasta he's ever had. We enjoy the owners, the food and the atmosphere.. Doug and Ellaine Spivak Los Ayala Nayarit

We celebrated a 50th birthday of a friend with a paella dinner prepared and served by the engaging, talented and quirky owners at the Cafe Arte. Everything from the freshly baked bread to the complex and tasty paella was terrific. It was a great evening, in the perfect setting. This is our second visit to San Panco and our second... More

The friend however is now sorry she suggested this restaurant to us. The owner who was also the waiter was disinterested in taking our drink orders or our... More

We had the misfortune of wasting our time at this establishment recently. Having just come from the San Pancho music festival, we were hungry and thirsty and looking for something to satisfy. This was the WRONG place to pick. We came with a large group of eleven and decided to sit outside at first. We soon discovered this was a... More

Cafe Arte Started doing Paella on Saturdays and it's awesome!! I've never had anything bad at this restaurant...they scored with another addition to their menu...Paella! It has Crab claws, Muscles, Shrimp, peas, carrots and a bunch of other stuff, but it tastes great...no wait, another culinary climax!! Check out the pic!

We were invited into Cafe Arte by a small group of people sitting at a table outside, who told us this establishment had "the best food." What followed was such exaggerated sales pressure it was nearly comical. My friend had ordered a drink and a then asked for a snack (my friend reported the latter was average) from an older... More
