Not the cheapest meal on our vacation but one of the best. No reservation needed during the "low season" at this delightful restaurant that looks like a painter's color palate from the outside. Although it was hot and humid outside, inside was very comfortable. Relaxing live music, delicious and unusual food, fantastic service by Giovani and Luis Joya,

Whenever we are in PVR, my wife and I make a point of having one evening at Cafe Des Artistes. The food is always a treat (try the pumpkin soup with prawns) and the atmosphere is chic and romantic. The waiter will bring you an amuse bouche which is always a surprise. Giovani and Luis took great care of us... More

I've eaten at perse, the french laundry, boullet, and several other of North America's finest restaurants. Paco and Efrain were our servers and they were knowledgeable and pleasant. The taco de Lechon was one of the best things I've ever eaten, and the beef tongue was also fabulous. More over, for about ~$60 a person with a decent bottle of... More

One of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta! Amazing food and a great selection of Mezcal. We loved this place so much that we had to come back the next evening for drinks. Ruth is the best bartender we've ever met. She is very friendly and has the best attitude ever. I highly recommend this place!

We recently celebrated our son's third birthday at this restaurant. The staff, including Israel and Manuel, were very nice and professional. The lady that answered the phone speaks perfect English, so making a reservation was very easy. The birthday arrangement was a piece of art, and the staff surprised us with a great chorus singing 'Happy Birthday'. Food was amazing,... More

Cafe des Artistes is wonderful!!! We enjoyed every course and the cocktails. If you're looking for an upscale dining experience in PV, this is the very best! It's also a fun place to celebrate a birthday since they bring out sparklers, sing and make amazing desserts!

I had visited this restaurant many years ago and still remains as the best in Puerto Vallarta. We went there to celebrate a family reunion and the experience was fantastic. The manager acommodated all our requests, including some live mariachis. The ambiance is amazing, the food is great and the service superb. Israel and Rafael treated us very well. Hope... More

Casual yet elegant. No more than needed menu. Service just perfect. Paco and Alex made us feel welcomed, were super patient and did not make us wait at all.
