Went for Valentines day. There was a prix fixed menu. 2 choices for appetizer. A "lobster and Artichoke Heart" and a smoked salmon heart. We had one of each. There was literally 3 tiny pieces of lobster and 2 small pieces or artichoke in the first appetizer. They were surrounded by lots of avocado, jicama, and other veggies. Not bad... More

Came here as recommended by two couples in one single day while visiting Puerto Vallarta. Didn't research or look into the restaurant beforehand & really didn't know what to expect. WOW! we were sure in for a surprise. Walked into a majestic & artsy experience. From the customer service to the impeccable flavorful creative dishes to the ambiance, this restaurant... More

I have nothing to add to its universally acclaimed reputation - except to praise our waiter, Jorge. He made us comfortable from the moment we were seated. Thank you.

A wonderful setting in the middle of the town of Puerto Vallarta. Very deceiving from the outside. The outdoor garden seating was very picturesque and relaxing. The french fusion cooking with a Mexican flare was unique. I had the Duck which was amazing. All of our dishes were extremely flavorful. Service was excellent. Best meal we had in PV.

I went here on valentines day with a group of friends, the service was poor and I was not impressed with the portion sizes. extremely over priced for what you get and it wasn't as good as the first time we ate here. the atmosphere is still great but they have clearly went downhill on service and taste.

Three of us visited this restaurant for dinner a few months ago since it is hyped as Vallarta's best. Sorry to say it its not. PV has some fantastic restaurants but this is not one of them in our opinion. They are uncaring with their customers. Their reputation of years past is carrying them right now. The food is not...

There is a reason this restaurant is rated #1! The food, the service, the atmosphere is like no other in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo. We went for my birthday and everything was perfect. The evening was topped off with candles and a birthday platter and everyone singing happy birthday. The soft music playing all evening put an extra special touch... More

We had an amazing dinner here. The food is all French in preparation with fusion twists that are well thought out. Everything we had was delicious! Our servers, Jorge and Gil were attentive, friendly, and generous with the wine pours (of which there is a good selection). It was one of our favorite dining experiences in PVR!
