Excellent restaurant. Great food, service, They usually have someone playing an instrument with really nice music which adds to a very nice experience. You can also ask to seat at the outside patio which is very nice.

Cafe des Artistes is one of our favorite restaurants to dine during our stay in Puerto Vallarta. On this trip, we went twice for dinner.

There was a guest chef from Paris. The menu was a different menu with selections from the guest chef. My wife had the vegetarian sample menu. She is not a vegetarian but wanted to try something different. She loved it!!!!!!

I had four dishes done by the guest chef. All four dishes were beautifully done and superb!

Our superb waiters were Marcos and Alex. The service, food, and ambiance are Cafe des Artistes are five stars.

If you have a chance please go to the small boutique by the entrance of the restaurant. The owners' wife makes all the jewelry by hand. My wife bought some beautiful earrings.

The finest dining experience in coastal Mexico to be sure, and having had the privilege to enjoy fine French-based dining in many continues, one of the most original anywhere. Outstanding service and wine list with great French and Spanish selections. Wonderful sfoie gras

I was disappointed. Have come to Cafe Des Artistes since it opened. The outside was not open as it was not high season yet and I was not aware so that dampened the dinner somewhat.. I brought 3 people that had never been before and of course raved about the pumpkin and prawn soup. Was was lukewarm and lackluster. The rest of the dinner was just ok. All of them said they would not return. A shame as it was always my favorite restaurant. Service was just ok....The waiters assistant described the dishes and it was very difficult to understand his pronunciation. Not the restaurant it was..

Después de estar pasando una gran noche y bebiendo muy buenos vinos, el mesero negó servirnos una copa más de vino! Al cabo de 10min regreso a decirme que siempre si me podía mandar una copa pero no a mis 2 invitados! El servicio es pésimo... no me importa gastar 9mil pesos como lo hice pero si me importa recibir esta clase de trato!
