A gorgeous combination of outstanding cookin, great service and a carefully designed environment. Food was cornerstone; great quality, not trying to copy anyone, original and adventurous ... all in all worth every bite.

“3.5 out of 5. Nice decor, good service, reasonable food”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

My only real criticism is that the 'lamb osso bucco' was really lamb shank, and bore no resemblance to the italian dish (albeit it is normally made with veal); although perfectly pleasant not what I was expecting.

“Dining with friends”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

My friends and me decided to dine in this fabulous Restaurant. Since the moment we arrived everything was great. The food, the service, everything was fantastic. If you want a elegant and exquisite dinner Cafe des Artistes is the place go want to try. I also would like give special thanks to our waiters Jorge and Rojas for their excellent service.

“Great food, snooty waiter”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We go every year to puerto vallarta and this is the first time I have been disappointed in the service. The food was great but we never got the water we asked for and had to ask three times for our check which finally arrived 30 minutes after we asked for it. It was clear that our waiter decided other people around us were more important. I tip well having been a waitress in college but this time the incredible violinist and pianist received the majority of the tip I would have given to the waiter. He managed to spoil what had been a lovely evening. We always have trouble getting our schedule to fit with all the restaurants we want to go to but the next time I think we will skip cafe des artistes and go to trio instead.

“First time met expectations”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We returned to Puerto Vallarta after several years absence and were looking for great places to eat and we were referred here by the owner of one of the galleries in town. It was one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever had. The food was unbelievably good and the service from our waiter Jorge was impeccable, friendly but not intrusive. Sometimes we have found that highly touted places disappoint, but not here. Also we were there during Restaurant Week and the special fixed price menu for that week meant that the meal was not only excellent but an excellent value as well. We'll be back.
