Absolutely fabulous! We did the five-course menu with a wine pairings and every moment of our food and evening were excellent. Thierry Bloue stopped by the table a couple of times with gracious hospitality and was super friendly. The restaurant is a special treat, yet it has the immediate comfort of the place you would like to go very often If you lived here.

The staff were gracious and highly attentive from the opening of the front door to the final exit. We also ordered Mexican coffee which is quite the production to see and enjoy. It was a great value for the exceptional quality, and we will be back.

Somewhat disinterested staff. Not everyone but the hostesses and some waiters just seem to want to rush your evening. And make mistakes such as wrong food delivery to a table and then take the food to another table. Seriously. In these times? That should never happen. Granted the birthday treat you receive is special.

I have traveled all over the world, and dined in some of the finest restaurants. Cafe des Artistes, was by far, the most romantic and well presented environments I have experienced. The multilevel out side terraces with lighting and music was magical. The food was exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. Future visits to Puerto Vallarta will always include dinner at Cafe des Artistes.

We booked for a Thursday evening around 830pm. On arrival we were offered a choice of eating in the garden or inside - we chose the garden and what a great choice this was. The setting is very romantic in a planted courtyard lit up by strings of lights with tables spread around different levels of terraces.

You have a choice of 3 menus - the tasting, bistro or a la carte and we chose the a la carte

We received a complimentary steak tartare amuse-bouche to start our meal from the chef.

For starter we shared a tomato salad which was fresh, delicious and full of flavour then I also had the caulifower explosion with a unique and flavoursm sauce and my partner had the pork confit taco. Well presented and delicious

We then had prawns cooked on hot stones for a fish course which was made at the table served with Barley and a tequila spicy sauce. Theatrically made in front of you and again delicious and fresh

I chose the mushroom risotto for my main perfectly cooked al dente and in a delicious sauce and my partner beef rib and filet which was amazing and one of the best dishes he has had - compliments to the chef

If that wasn’t enough we finished our meal with the flowerpot of three mousses well presented in a pottery pot and the meringue cheese cake

A great wine list is also available as well as cocktails and through the evening music plays from the piano and violinist around the restaurant

The service was attentive and friendly from
both Luis and Alexis who served our table and ensured we had everything we needed during our meal - thank you for looking after us

Dress code I would suggest for this establishment to match the service and environment would be a collared shirt and smart shorts or trousers. We will be back !

This was the worst tasting menu I have ever had in my entire life. The wine pairings were all extremely poor. A restaurant with these accolades should have the timing, service and food perfect. The octopus was not tender. The fois gras was terrible. I did not eat 3 of the 6 dishes. I am extremely disappointed in the service. They were over worked. Told us we were eating chocolate macaroons when they were raspberry. And sometimes never even told us what food we were eating, or any of the sauces. It was an extremely poor experience and I hope you improve in the future. I highly recommend not eating at this restaurant.

The evening started well. Service was very attentive, filling our wine and water frequently until our appetizer was done then we went 45 minutes waiting for our entrees and during that time no one came by to refill glasses. By then I was too frustrated to enjoy the rest of the meal. Left without dessert or coffee. If only a server would have come by to top our wine or apologize for the wait it would have made all the difference.
