This is my third time at this restaurant while on vacation and I enjoyed the first two times. I can’t remember having slower less attentive service at a fine restaurant. The food was great but the bad service really about ruined the meal.

When I made the reservation on Open Table I indicated that my husband and I would be in Puerto Vallarta to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We have been to Cafe des Artists on previous visits and thought it would be the perfect place to celebrate, along with our son and son in law. When we arrived and checked in we were greeted with “Happy Anniversary”! As we waited for our table, we were presented with a complimentary pre dinner celebration drink! Upon being seated, our table was decorated with rose petals! We all ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was amazing! As was the service. We declined dessert because we were stuffed and within minutes we were surprised with a mirrored tray with lHappy Anniversary “ written in chocolate and decorated with delicious treats! I could not have chosen a more perfect place to mark such an important occasion. And to the staff at Cafes des Artistes , Thank You , from the bottom of my heart, for making our Anniversary as special to you as it was to us! Well done!

We were there to celebrate our 27 year anniversary. The staff, food and garden setting were fantastic. A nice touch was the table covered with rose petals and the nice Anniversary tray at the end of the meal. I highly recommend this place when in Vallarta.

We waited in the bar for maybe 20-25 minutes after our reservation time to get a table in the terrace garden, well worth it. Beautiful, charming and magical. Our waiters were friendly and perfectly attentive. The food was absolutely exquisite. My wife had fish of the day-mahi mahi for entre, perfectly prepared, organic tomatoes and burrata cheese - delicious. I had chilequiles con escargot as my appetizer- exquisite; and the shrimp con plumb and habanero mole - just wonderful and the mole was very subtle. For dessert we shared the fantastic strawberries. We are not big dessert eaters but we practically licked the bowl clean. A wonderful evening

This was our first visit. The shrimp "pumpking" soup was excellent. We enjoyed our evening.

We were not told there was a special dinner and pre fix on Valentine’s Day. The price for PV was rediculously expensive. Will not return
