This was one of the loveliest dinners my boyfriend and I have enjoyed in a long time. We went for our anniversary, and the staff went above and beyond making the night feel special. We were served by Daniell and Paco, and they were both...wonderful and attentive. We will certainly be back.More

A truly extraordinary dining experience. I am a foodie, extensively traveled, and I do not gush about restaurants lightly - but I’m gushing here. This truly was one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. I celebrated a birthday with family (party of four), and...we had one of the best evenings ever. We were seated in the restaurant’s interior “jungle”, with live orchids lining the wall. We began with creative, delightful cocktails, followed by a truly extraordinary meal. The restaurant served a sparkling dessert and the chef came to the table to extend his greetings. To top it off, we were totally shocked at the modest bill for such an extensive dining experience. I can’t wait to return; I could not recommend this restaurant more highly.More

Rafael and his team gave us the best service I have ever had in a restaurant! The food was exquisite. The tuna tataki appetizer was to die for, and all of our entres were amazing! We had the sea bass, the fillet and spare rib,...and the tuna in tomatillo sauce. It was my birthday and my oldest son's.... they put together a special dessert with a huge sparkler... And When I told Raphael that my youngest wanted to be a chef, he gave us a comprehensive tour of the kitchen. This was not our first time at Cafe de Artistes, and it will not be last!More

Cafe Des Artistes is an outperform from a dining experience stand point. From the moment when you walk in to when you are seated through dining you are taken into a whole new world. The service is impeccable our servers Jorge and Ismael were attentive...and timely not overbearing. The food was refined but still substantive. Highly recommend chic and elegant.More

Simply delicious food and a very enjoyable atmosphere at this restaurant. The chef and the staff really work hard to provide a fine dinning experience. The outdoor setting has plenty of sculptures and is quite nice; although it can be a bit too humid but...this is understandable.More

Disappointing experience, food mediocre and hyped up with gimmicky plays. Another Puerto Vallarta restaurant selling perfectly good city water for $100 pesos. When asked for city water waiters presented water in unmarked bottle than charged for it. Won't go back.

Came here for a celebration meal. Service and ambiance were out of this world. Food was unique and very good. That said, we came here as earlier menus had many vegetarian options as our guests of honor are vegetarian. When we arrived the only options...for them were some starters and the vegetarian tasting menu. So we were forced into that. But to do the tasting menu they said it was for the whole table! So we ended up with two vegetarian tasting menus, two regular tasting menus, two wine pairings and two cocktails. With tip it was over $700. It was very good but not worth the price in my opinion.More

This is our favorite spot in Puerta Vallarta for a "special occasion." We took a friend for his birthday and the evening ended with the Cafe des Artistest special birthday feature. In addition, we each enjoyed the multi-course prix fix dinner, including wine pairing. Expensive,...but well worth the price. We figure a night out (with drinks, wine, dessert, etc.) is less expensive than a ticket to a Broadway show -- and far more entertaining. If you do, make reservations early (it sells out) and ask to eat in the gorgeous garden. Very romantic.More
