    Very mixed bag. I hated my meal but my spouse liked his, so it’s entirely possible I just ordered the wrong things. We opted for the restaurant week three course meal and the flank steak main dish was nearly inedible. Fig and goat cheese starter was good and the desserts were served on a tray with anniversary congratulations, which was a nice touch. Inside, the restaurant was very loud the constant running (not walking) of the staff made it distracting at best, uncomfortable at worst. They graciously agreed to move us outside to the table on the very corner next to traffic. Not my ideal choice but the restaurant was pretty busy. I rarely leave anything but good reviews and i was really hoping Azafrán would be a better experience than it turned out to be, especially for our anniversary.

    Delicious food as always. Superior service. Lots of noise due to the Pride parade but that added fun and excitement to the meal. If you don’t wish to be pestered by vendors choose an indoor table.

    The service was outstanding, attentive but not too much. The local was nice, everything was clean and the music pleasant. It was hot out and we almost got seated at an outdoor table in full sun. Luckily they had a table for two inside. We had the restaurant week tasting menu. My husband loved the soup, my stuffed figs were good but a bit on the bland side. The pasta was delicious but the steak was just ok. The ragout served with the steak was a bit too sweet for me. The chocolate lava cake was ok and the beignets were more like donuts. They had a lot of wines to choose from, all from Mexico. We chose a semi expensive Cabernet which they highly recommended. Again, just ok, too fruit forward and not much depth. All in all, we decided it was a nice evening out but we’ll keep looking for that magic combination of top notch service, great atmosphere and delicious food.

    Absolutely loved our first experience. Sat inside not next to the doors and had some wine with a couple of the house specials. Everything was cooked perfectly and the presentation and flavor were spot on. Many waiters attending to every need or want. Will definitely go back. Violinist was a classy touch to a wonderful night. Surprised my partner with happy birthday desert and candle! A nice touch a great ending to a perfect experience.

    Absolutely delicious food. My favs are the Caesar salad and the duck entree. I wasn’t crazy for the raspberry sorbet dessert… it was a little strange. Outstanding quality, presentation and taste. Sitting outside by the street can be loud at times. Lovely friendly service. Definitely would recommend!

    Enjoyed the experience. Waitstaff was great but I had asked for more bread two times and never did receive it. They were busy and we had about 4 different servers so I chalked it up to a misunderstanding by the staff. The short ribs were good but a little too rich and over cooked for my taste. They were tender but had been braised and cooked a bit long as the meat was getting that sandy broke down mouth feel when eating over cooked meat. The potatoes were a bit over cooked also. The root vegetables were perfect with a bit of crunch. My starter - a mixed salad was a delight for the senses but a bit larger portion would have been nice. I asked for all their dressings on the side and mixed a perfect taste for my liking. My husband had the lamb wrapped in cabbage. He claimed it was very tasty and cooked well. He had the asparagus as a starter and enjoyed it as well. The cappuccino is a must after dinner. I wasn’t too disappointed in the food as it was really hyped up by some and I would definitely go back to try another dish such as a risotto with the catch of the day or pasta. All in all it’s worth a sit down, not too pricey and a culinary experience. Make reservations.

    The taste of the food and presentation is one of the best in Puerto Vallarta. Starting with the house water flavored with your choice of 4 different citrus fruits. The imaginative recipes, such as the risotto with asparagus served with the saltimbucco was wonderful. Don't miss the sugared apple beignets with ice cream for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant, but make a reservation because it is popular.
