Incredible French restaurant in the middle of a Mexican city! Service was impeccable. Food delicious. Some of the best beef bourgignon I've ever had. Don't miss this little gem, hidden away near the beautiful Guadaloupe church in downtown Puerto Vallarta!

We walk past this restaurant every day going to and from the house we stay in while in PV. We finally tried it last night and it was amazing. The French onion soup is to die for and so were the two desserts we got;...More
