Booked here based on the reviews and were not disappointed (apart from not getting petals at our table which my wife was miffed about!) - food excellent and the choice on the tasting menu (five courses) superb - and relatively inexpensive. Lovely romantic setting

From the delicious decor to the elegantly presented Foies Gras I thoroughly enjoyed this classically inspired international cuisine. The service was impeccable and I was able to get a perfectly prepared Tito's martini.

We went to Cafe des Artistes during our first trip to PV. We absolutely enjoyed it. If you can, ask to get seated near the raindrop room. It is beautiful. Our waiter, Rojas was awesome. Not only was he very helpful he also talked to us about PV and gave us great advice! The food was delicious. I had one... More

We popped in to Cafe de Artistes on Saturday night without a reservation. Polo, the consummate host said, "have a seat in the bar and give me a few minutes"...GLADLY! Of course, the live piano music was wonderful and the smell of stargazer lilies on the piano was delish. Plus there was a roving violinist. In just a few minutes... More

The restaurant itself is beautifully designed, specially the garden, which has tables situated at multiple levels that make them cozier. The food was excellent and the the suggestions by the waiter was right on the money. An ideal place for a romantic occasion.

We tried to visit cafe Teresa, one of our favorites, but they are not open on Sunday, so decided to try this spot (then realized it was on some stupid reality TV show that I had on and that was why the name was in my head). It just was not great food and we don't mind spending money on... More

Lighting was horrible but everything else about this place was amazing. Delicious. It was my birthday and they made it my best birthday in a long long time. The lychee marguirita is not to be missed!

The food was incredible and the atmosphere a pure delight! When we were seated our table had rose petals scattered with a pink plate for my wife and a blue plate for me. The wine selection was rich with Chilean and Mexican wines. We ordered their specialty soup and entree's with salmon and mahi-mahi, both of which were prepared beautifully... More

The Chef/owner began his restaurant over 20 years ago bringing to Vallarta one of the best restaurants in the city. He's a Cordon Bleu chef who has evolved his cuisine to ad local flavours to his traditional french dishes. In reality it is a small jewel in Puerto Vallarta good enough to compete with fine restaurants of any major metropolitan... More
