The patio is beautiful - really haven't seen anything better. Service was good - Javier was excellent. But the food disappointed especially given the prices and reputation. I would not go there again.

We introduced 2 friends to this amazing town and amazing restaurant one week ago. As soon as I returned back to the condo, made reservations again for a week later. We were never rushed. The room's beautiful artwork created a lovely atmosphere. I haven't been to this restaurant in years. Felt it was overpriced. Shame on me for missing this... More

The service, wine, food, and ambiance were all amazing and contributed to an experience that my family and I will never forget. Our lead waiter was attentive and personable. He brought out one of the chefs to meet my boyfriend (who is also a chef). In general, it seems like the staff really goes above and beyond for their guests.... More

Four of us went to Cafe des Artistes for drinks and appetizers one evening. We were seated in the bar and waited on by Lupita who was gracious, friendly and efficient. The five appetizers we all shared were delicious. The music and general ambiance were pleasant and comfortable. All of us had a wonderful time, and the two who weren't... More

We checked out this restaurant on a friend's recommendation during our last stay in Puerto Vallarta. The food was amazing - artfully presented and very flavourful. I ordered the Fresh Tuna Crusted with Peanuts and my boyfriend had the Lamb Chops crusted with Pistachios. We shared the Confit Suckling Pig Taco and Bacon for the appetizer and the Chocolate Brick... More

We had the "early bird menu"... which is the best of deals, and had excellent service by Chema and Javier! We go every year we come!

We recently got married in PV, and decided one of our last items on the agenda was to venture from Nuevo to DT PV! We had received several recommendations for Des Artistes, and we definitely understand why! The ambiance and menu were both to die for! Our servers, Paco and Manuel were absolutely outstanding! We were on the top terrace... More

I'm ashamed to admit, but in all our years in Puerto Vallarta we have never dined here. Let me say, we made up for lost time. We dined here twice. The food, the service, the ambience were outstanding. One meal in the dining room and one in the Garden. From the time we walked in the door to the time... More
