Once again Cafe des Artistes was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is top quality. The service was impeccable. Our servers Israel and Efrain were attentive. This time we had the wine pairing menu. Each course was a meal by itself. The food was wonderful. Any special occasion this is our place to go. This is definitely on of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta.

We enjoyed a 5 course wine pairing dinner with friends in celebration of a birthday. The service IMPECABLE, the food AMAZING, and our waiters Efrain & Israel were charming and attentive to our requests. Definitely a 5-star experience, you will not be disappointed. Will definitely return for another wonderful evening. The photos below are of the dessert tray for the birthday celebration, plus we were served champagne to toast the birthday girl (Champagne was courtesy of CdA).

What a beautiful restaurant! I loved the entire experience. Cafe Des Artistes came highly reccomended and did not disappoint. The building and interior are beautiful - a very modern and clean take on Mexican design set against a traditional backdrop. The location could not be better as it is centrally located to everything in Puerto Vallarta. The staff was very professional and courteous and made our group feel welcome. Our waiters, Paco and Enrique, were great. And the food was wonderful! The menu was ecclectic and interesting and everyone enjoyed their meal. In addition, small pre-appetizers and dessert teasers and drinks came to the table unexpectedly all making the experience that much more memorable. I will be dining here again on my next trip to Puerto Vallarta.

We have been here 3 or 4 times and have never been disappointed. It is a wonderful restaurant, delicious food and wonderful service and atmosphere.

This time we celebrated our anniversary. This was our first time dining inside. As this was August, the air conditioned room was a welcome retreat from the heat and humidity this time of year can bring.

Our waiter Marvin, was excellent. He really made our celebration meal special. Thank you!

I had the prawn and pumpkin cream soup. Very good, though very rich. My husband had the escargot ravioli - that was so so good! I opted for the fish of the day (mahi mahi) with was accompanied by cactus enchiladas and an anaheim chili stuffed with shrimp. Wow - what an interesting combination and so good. My husband opted for the beef tongue steak, which he really enjoyed.

They have an extensive wine list - some pricey items, but we were able to find a nice Baja, CA bottle that went well with our entrees.

Dessert was incredible. I cannot even describe the wonderful surprise Marvin brought us. We had ordered the caramel creme brulee and the raspberry mousse with flourless chocolate cake, but got much more than that. It was truly beautiful. The desserts were so delicious, I would recommend them both.

Very elegant and upscale dining. Glad they are here in PV!

We dined at Cafe des Artistes to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and had an amazing experience. It was not our first time to the restaurant and as always, the food, atmosphere and service was top notch! Our waiter, Efrain Luis Joya, was excellent and very personable. We will definitely return during our next trip to Puerto Vallarta.
