We decided to have a french meal after 3 weeks of Mexican food. This lovely establishment is right by the cathedral, in a beautiful neighbourhood. They make a great martini, and we had terrific Vol au vents with scallops and mushrooms. I wish we had room to try dessert, as I am sure we would not have been disappointed! The... More

This is a French/ Mexican influence bistro style restaurant popular with residents and tourists alike. Food was good, service good, and the wine list was reasonable. We were there on a slow night so the manager spent a little time with us just chatting. Very comfortable place to enjoy some wine and the company of others. Would certainly return.

Me and my friend forgot we were in Vallarta, and it is a weird feeling. The food is loyal to the best french bistrots we have... More

An authentic French bistro setting conducive for romantic liaisons or just sitting alone, enjoying a glass of wine and, perhaps, writing a short story. An ideal place for partaking of a full meal with friends, with several glasses of wine, of course. No matter, La Cigale is one of the finest dining establishments in Puerto Vallarta. Here, the view isn't... More

La Cigale is constantly excellent and that is hard at least for me to find in Puerto Vallarta.... and when... More

A very favorite of ours in PV. Food is great and true to French style. The atmosphere is very comfortable, and staff were on top of everything. Better experience then we have had at some restaurants in France.

The look is charming... the location easy to get to.. a few blocks from the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I´ve only been three times, but find the food overly rich and ultimately inedible for me. French fries greasy. Mushrooms covered in melted cheese. Waiters are friendly and attractive and service is good..Tthe little bar scene is cozy and... More

La Cigale is an absolute must when visiting Puerto Vallarta. My wife and I are "foodies," and we've travelled all over the world sampling all kinds of cuisine. This place exemplifies fantastic French cooking. The flavors are complex, but delicate, presentation is wonderful, and the service, superb. We are summering in Puerto Vallarta, and have already been to La Cigale... More
