“A nice surprise !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2013

More a cafe serving food than a restaurant, but really a nice surprise.
Close to downtown is providing an interesting menu with different food culture contamination reviewed in a excellent way.
I went for lunch time and it was almost crowded, then I pass close t and I saw it was crowded also at night.
It has a cool atmosphere especially if you want to talk with people and relax.
Food quality and service is very good even if have something very easy like burger, lamb burger is really excellent;
A good place to go for spending some nice time.
Bill is on average for the area.

“Cozy and busy cafe in central Drammen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

Picasso's strength lies in it's ability to suit most purposes. Whether you're just in need of a coffee, a snack, a light meal or a proper dinner, this cafe will meet your need. Its also equally suitable both for romantic and merely friendly occasions. The food is good and the waiters are, by Norwegian standards, usually surprisingly pleasant and even funny at times. Especially the brownies can be recommended. The interior is welcoming, although the atmosphere gets quite loud and noisy at peak hours.

“Informal dining in Drammen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

Last Saturday was my first visit to Cafe Picasso. The menu had a good choise of dishes, from a reasonable price to a little more expensive. I had garlic marinated Lamb Fillet, medium done. It was perfedt. Unfortunately was the dessert-menu not experiented, but the fferent choises looked good. The atmosphere was good, informal, there were a lot of visitors, so I think it must be very popular.
What dragged down, was the localities, it was a bit noisy.
All in all I absolutely will go back, maybe the next time I am in Drammen.

“Always :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

I've been a loyal customer since Picasso opened their doors. Picasso is always a safe choice for lunch, dinner, a snack (try the mexican cheese dip!) or simply a coffee. They have a varied menu with very nice chicken dishes, meat, fish, mexican etc. Childrens meny.

Don't leave without testing the brownie!
