Went with a group of friends while in PV. What a special meal! The garden setting is one of the best restaurant settings I've experienced (and we've been to a LOT of great restaurants around the world). Beautiful garden on multiple levels with great outdoor artwork. The musicians were also outstanding! Food was very good. Full disclosure - service was... More

Very nice meal. I always go here for a special treat when visiting Puerto Vallarta. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but that's good dining. And they know how to make a good martini! A perfect break from margaritas and traditional Mexican food (which I love also, don't get me wrong). Romantic date night for my boyfriend and I also.

We love Cafe des Artistes and the warm welcome we get every year from Maitre Paulo and Bar Chef Ruth, who greet us like old friends and with such a big smile! This is an exquisite restaurant in every way and our favourite place in town, but since we are both vegans we always request a special meal to be... More

Our 8th dinner in Puerto Vallarta was in the garden at the upscale restaurant. It's very beautiful & service is impeccable. While the food was fine, it cost as much to feed two of us as it's cost to feed four of us at La Palapa & Vista Grill & Trio (all superb with just as nice an atmosphere). Our... More

Could not think of a better way to say Adios to Puerto Vallarta till next December so we had a marvelous dinner in the garden at the Cafe des Artiste. The menu was extraordinary and the service by Paco and Manuel made our evening special and memorable. The ambiance was perfect as was the wine. Can't wait to come back... More

No wonder this is the #1 rated restaurant in a Puerto Vallarta! We had exceptional service from Jorge and Victor. Food was delicious and stunningly displayed. Portions were not skimpy. The Burrata salad was unbelievable. We'll be back!

We celebrated our last evening at Cafe des Artiste. Every detail seemed special. The menu choices were exquisite, the service superb, and the atmosphere was enchanting. Our servers, Israel and Paco, were very helpful, friendly and easy to converse with. I highly recommend this restaurant for all of these reasons.

Based on the tripadvisor ranking we had big expectations and we weren't disappointed. The service was great, the live music (violin & piano) were great, the decor was fantastic, the wine selection was one of the best in PV and the food was on par with what you'd expect from a high end restaurant in Canada or the USA.
