Super cool place with amazing food. I doubt there's anything you'd eat here that wouldn't excite your taste buds. I only take one star off because given the local culture and the area of the restaurant, I think it's a little over priced. I'm sure the owner would disagree but I'm sorry, it's just how I feel.

Cafe des Artistes is world class. The rear garden is magic. Amazing plants, art, lighting and an unforgettable ambience. The food is excellent with service to match. You'll never forget your night here even if you're spoiled.

We all went with the 4-course dinner with wine pairing. All the wine was fabulous and the meal was to die for. My favorite was the Prawn and Pumpkin soup. Presentation on each of the plates was also fantastic. Service was great as well. I ordered a martini with olives and when I asked for a few more olives they... More

We went here for our friends anniversary and had an amazing experience. We ordered the price fix meal and everything was prepared perfectly. Worth every cent of an expensive meal especially by Mexican standards. The facilities are absolutely beautiful and the atmosphere is world class.

The drinks were excellent,... More

We recently hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner for my son, his wife, and about 40 others at the Café Des Artistes in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. What a remarkable meal in a truly magnificent setting. The restaurant is in the old town of Puerto Vallarta, several blocks away from the beach. The outside is unassuming, but on entry, one quickly realizes... More

My husband and I attended a wedding at a five-star resort (all-inclusive) in Puerto Vallarta. After 3 days of mediocre food, we decided to venture into town and found a local, charming hotel in the heart of old Puerto Vallarta. It was walking distance from Cafe des Artistes. We were seated in a luscious garden amidst candles and a lovely... More

A major part of our recent anniversary trip to Puerta Vallarta was to eat at Café des Artistes. We made reservations, online, in advance and specifically requested patio seating. Our reservation was confirmed via email. When we arrived, in a wonderful mood expecting a beautiful evening, we were informed we could not be seated on the patio but, if we... More

Very romantic dinner like being in France but in another country. The Foei grae this restaurant should be Michelin rated. The food was very good comparable to the French Laundry Restaurant in Yountville CA.
