We just ate there tonight, it was our third time. It is always been good but tonight was especially wow. We had pork carpaccio to start. We’ve never had it before and it was incredible. The bread is wonderful. I had a filet that was...cooked perfectly on a bed of potatoes with broccoli, carrots, and peas. Yum. It came with a gravy that really set the meat off. My husband had cabbage rolls stuffed with Mexican barbacoa and it was equally good. We finished with a chocolate dessert with caramel that had an orange foam. Best dessert I’ve ever had at a restaurant hands down. This is a hidden gem.More

We happened upon this place by chance when we were unable to get a table at a nearby restaurant we had intended to dine at. It had been raining but it was still a pleasantly warm evening and Azafran had a sidewalk table available under...a canopy so we chose to eat there. Our waiter was excellent, brought menus and took our wine order immediately. I chose the pumpkin risotto which was very rich and creamy with lots of chunks of pumpkin throughout. My husband had the pork cutlet with mashed potatoes and he found it to be the best cutlet he had eaten in years. Our waiter comped us an after dinner drink so we lingered, just people watching on the busy street corner of Olas Altus. Would definitely return here.More

We are so happy you were unable to get a table at that other restaurant 😉 and you decided to give us a try. Thanks for your positive comments about the service and food, that pork cutlet Chef Andreas makes is out of this world...More

Amazing service and great food. Right in the heart of the Zona Romantica. Very reasonable for a top quality meal and the service was better than we have had in much more expensive places.

Azafrán has become one of our “go to” dining options here in Puerto Vallarta. We live here year round, and this restaurant never disappoints. The service is exceptional, the food is always perfection. Nick was our waiter for the last two visits, and represents why...the service here is a cut above just about anywhere else. I highly recommend! The saffron crusted salmon is devine.More

Wonderful sophisticated flavor and beautiful design in comfortable seating. Hands-down one of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta.

Great food and even better service. Location is awesome. Nic and “Desi Arnaz” took great care of me. I asked why so few tables, and their response was so that they could give the best service. To that I say YES.

There are a lot of seafood restaurants and pizzerias in this area and so it’s great to have Azafrán as an alternative. The chef is German and European-trained so the food is a sort of German-Mexican fusion. I ate there four times over the course...of a month and enjoyed everything. The service is phenomenal - the staff is friendly and professional. The salads were fantastic and there is a decent wine selection. I enjoyed trying Chilean CabSavs that I can’t get at home. I tried the pork belly, which was delicious, but they should not advertise it as “crispy” because it certainly wasn’t. When you are in the mood for a little pampering and are tired of fish tacos, give them a try,More
