We stayed in PV for a week and although there is many restaurants in the area to choose from, Michel's was the only place that we absolutely had to make a second trip. Not only was the food incredible but the service was even better! Rafael, our server both visits, was one of the highlights of our trip, great family... More

Good location near all. Inside and outside dining. Food very average. Overcharged on the bill but apologized. I prefer some other French restaurants in Puerto Vallarta.

The staff and service was very welcoming and attentive. We were a party of four, and had a mix of entrees from the menu. We all enjoyed our dinner and cocktails very much. Location is also convenient. I would definitely recommend Michel's for a nice dinner.

We went to Michels for dinner 2nd night. Michel and his partner were our gracious host! The food was very good as was the service and the company. I had the sautéed octopus appetizer and the white fish that was seated and baked to perfection. Loved them both! Definitely recommend for a beautiful meal and evening!

This is a must stop for us when ever we are in Vallarta. Great location on the corner in the romantico zone. We never had a bad meal here! The staff are friendly and attentive. Indoor is air conditioned and atmosphere is more chic with a casual sophisticated vibe!

I so looked forward to this dinner and it was not what we remembered. We ordered 1 pasta and 1 veal to share, as we were not that hungry. We were given 2 small plates and the pasta with the bolognese sauce and the veal piccata were served in the same bowl. These sauces are not meant to be mixed... More

I've been visiting this establishment since my first visit in Spring of 2010. I've been going to PV twice a year since and this is my first choice of restaurants in the Zona Romantica. There is not a bad thing on the menu and the specials make the choices even better. My absolute favorite was removed from the menu but... More
