We had a lovely dinner with a good bottle of wine and a steak each. Lovely service by the waitress who spoke perfect English. The filet mignon and tuna steak are great, although the accompanying salad/French fries are a bit on the boring side.

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!
