A must dining experience in Puerto Vallarta!

For our 35th Anniversary trip to Puerto Vallarta, we had the most meal at Cafe Des Artiste that we went back several days later. We were fortunate enough to have Israel as our waiter both times. Atmosphere was exquisite! (We ate upstairs in the gardens) Service was excellent! Food was... read more

We visited Café des Artistes two years ago on an anniversary trip and knew we would go back. Did so this time with two other couples and had a fantastic evening. Dinner, Service, Presentation and atmosphere were all superb. Outdoor seating in the garden so peaceful and the anniversary desert they brought to the table was a real treat. Thank... More

What a great experience and beautiful space! Had the pleasure of having Israel and Santos as my waiters....and they were informative, kind hosts. Attention to detail was precise....the food was delicious....and restaurant week prices made me feel guilty for paying so little for such a great meal!

This restaurant is one of the best in PV and probably in Mexico, everything here is superior: incredible food, huge wine list, superb service, wonderful interior design, live soft music, the garden is really amazing ideal for a romantic dinner. A little bit pricy compared to other places in PV, but to be honest, it totally worth it. If you... More

Israel was our waiter and he was great! We bought coupons at Costco, which I believe was something like 799 pesos for 999 pesos to spend at the restaurant (we had 2 coupons for 2 couples). We made out for not much more than that. Israel and staff were friendly, attentive and gave us free samples of the delicious food,... More

This is my first time in Mexico and was pleasantly surprised when we walked in the restaurant I felt like I was in paradise! The experience continued through the whole meal. The food was out of this world! Our servers Israel and Santos were over the top! They were attentive, funny sweet and very professional! Loved the whole experience.

This was our second time at this restaurant and really the reason that we went back to Puerto Vallarta. Unfortunately, I was feeling a little bit under the weather the night we had dinner reservations here for my husbands bday. Not wanting to disappoint my husband I pulled myself together and off we went to Café des Artistes. We ordered... More

From the first step into the restaurant we were held in a spell of delight. The food matched the awe inspiring atmosphere and the waiters made the whole experience over the top. Can't say enough about Giovanni. One of the best!
