Always consistent and never disappointing

We have enjoyed dining at the Café Des Artistes on many occasions and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. This is our third Trip Advisor review and we have nothing to really add to our previous reviews other than repeat - Café Des Artistes continues to be a great place... read more

What an amazing restaurant! An absolute must visit for amazing food. Call ahead and reserve a table in the garden atrium for a romantic setting. We had a large group, and were seated under the hanging glass drops inside the restaurant, not the atrium -- but it was still spectacular! The only complaint was the red wines they were suggesting...

We ate dinner there last evening ( March 25th, 2015 ) expecting a wonderful experience. It was horrible ! One of our two waiters was rude, the sea bass was over cooked. I did ask for a replacement. It came out about 40 minutes after my request. My partner was so through dinner by then; I had it packaged for... More

Café des Artistes is a most unusual restaurant. The setting is unique. I think it is a converted patio on a hillside, with tables at different levels. Tropical trees abound. In fact, while dining, we occasionally had leaves falling from above. The quality of the food is extremely good and the service is impeccable. Like all high-end Puerto Vallarta restaurants,... More

The food is obviously amazing here, but so is the ambience. Whether you sit inside or outside in the garden, you will be impressed. I think the outside is a little more special because you eat under vines and trees. An amazing violin player came around and played for us. The food was obviously amazing, too. So you can't really...

I guess it shouldnt have surpised us to experience such outstanding servce in a resarant owned by a French chef, but really we didn't expect a dining experience equal to a fine French restaurant in Mexio. The garden setting was beautiful, and the food was spectacular. Based on a reccomendation we arrived before 6:30 and asked for the Early Bird... More

This is a long standing top rated restaurant in PV. We had not been there in 5 years, but as in all high quality restaurants, it has not lost its way. Quality food and outstanding service. (We had Jaime and Rangel as our waiters and they were well trained, courteous and attentive) Prices are still reasonable, but on the higher... More

The setting is lovely and unique. The food doesn't live up to the setting. Fancy dishes, but ordinary taste. Go to look over the place once.

We went as a family for my fathers birthday. The Gardens were spectacular, and the food was to die for!!! Our servers Luis A & Luis E were very attentive but never intrusive. Would highly recommend the Cafe Des Artistes!

My friends and I traveled to Puerto Vallarta for spring break, and we decided to splurge on a nice meal for our last night in town. The atmosphere at Cafe des Artistes was very special--complete with live piano and violin! I highly recommend the Argentine steak with Mezquite sauce, though you can't go wrong with any item on the menu.... More
