“Great fine dining experience in the middle of PV”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Restaurant is on top of a hill with a beautiful view! Everything from the ambiance, service, and food was spectacular. It was a romantic dinner away from the hotel. We had so much fun that I bought my sister dinner there on her honeymoon.

“Do not miss this experience!”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Puerto Vallarta is charmed when it comes to fine dining options, but Cafe des Artistes manages to top them all every time we experience a fine evening there. It is completely obvious from the moment you arrive that this establishment is steeped in professionalism. The staff, the ambience, the food,,,and amazing presentations...all absolutely exceptional. Our waiters were Paco and Marvin who served us in the beautiful garden area. Wonderful evening, start to finish!

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The setting, the service, and the ambiance were superb, and I would let my review stop there if I didn't have to do a required number of characters. This was my first time at the Cafe in about 15 years and it hasn't changed much in that time. A person doesn't mind paying a ridiculous price for a meal, because when you go to the Cafe you know ahead of time that it is going to be quite expensive, but saying that, the food should be as good as everything else.
