“Five star dining in a romantic atmosphere”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Dining at Cafe des Artistes is truly a memorable experience. The food is wonderfully prepared and presented. Seafood and fish can not be beat. The wine selection is excellent . The garden setting makes for one of the most beautiful restaurants we have ever dined in. The music adds to the ambiance.

“Anniversary dinner was amazing!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

We came here for dinner on a Friday night for our anniversary and it was all it was hyped up to be! We sat in the garden and the view of the beautiful garden area coupled with the guitar and music from the grazing band was amazing. The food was wonderful and very filling. We will be coming back for a fancy night out and/or another anniversary.

“Always a special evening”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We return to Puerto Vallarta almost every year, and a trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to Cafe des Artistes. First of all, the food is amazing. I can't say it is the best in Mexico, it is one of the best in the world! The setting is spectacular, we ate upstairs this year for a special treat with the chef's menu. The waitstaff was attentive, but not obtrusive. They made excellent reasonable wine choices. A special evening in a very romantic setting. No detail is overlooked from the music to the spotless restrooms, with a view! No wonder we return year after year. I can't even choose a favorite course - the truffled risotto, the salmon, the lobster soup? Each was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

“great experience”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were taken to a rooftop garden setting that was just beautiful. The waitstaff could not do enough to please us and the food was excellent, although the portions were not large. The cheapest bottle of wine was $50 so be prepared to spend that. Would definitely return,
