We went to celebrate the birthday occasion there and were happy we did! Food was delicious. We ordered for dinner Onion Soup, Baked Brie, and Puff Pastry with Mushrooms and Escargots. Wonderful flavor. Also, environment inside made us feel like being in France...Soft, French music added romantic atmosphere. We felt like we are at France, at some small bistro. Our waiter Gustavo did a great job! He was very attentive and pleasant! At the end of our meal, we were treated with a special drink made by the bartender (sorry forgot his name) which was delicious and unusual. Please visit this place and have fun as we did!

We were on foot searching for a place to have some wine. We had a great experience and the house Chardonnay was exactly what we were looking for after a hot day walking around the city. We just had the warm goat cheese salad because we were just looking for a snack. It was delicious and fresh. They brought us a basil liquor that was house made and it was amazing. I recommend this place.

My friend and went to this restaurant based on all the great reviews and it did not disappoint us. The minute we walked in we felt transported to Paris. The decor, the music, everything was so authentic. The food was amazing. I ordered the tuna, which came with a side salad with a unique dressing. My friend had the puff pastry with mushrooms, scallops and champagne. Both of our dishes were absolutely delicious. The also had an extensive wine / drinks selection and they even carried my favorite French liqueur Lillet Blanc. For desert we ordered a sampler, which came with a chocolate mouse, apple pie, and crepes Suzette, it was one of the best deserts I have tasted in a while. And to top it off, we got a liqueur on the house made with basil, pepper, cardamon and and other unique ingredients. It was yummy.
I would recommend everyone to eat at this restaurant, which was such a welcome relief after eating Mexican food for many days.

The best restaurant my partner and I dined at all week in Puerto Vallarta! The service is super friendly and the food is exquisite! We had it twice in one week.
It is a very special place, completely charming and definetely an authentic french bistro right in the center of Puerto Vallarta. If you're in town, you have to try this classy and casual french restaurant!
Great dining at respectable prices! This small restaurant is just a short distance from the Guadalupe s church and the malecon in the centro area and is a hidden gem. The authentic french bistro cuisine in an authentic parisian bistro setting is worth the trip. The menu is great and cannot disappoints (we ate our way through the menu!)
We have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for a few years, and this restaurant is the perfect example of the hidden gems that keep us coming back. Thank you La Cigale! and Vive La France in Puerto Vallarta!
