We were welcomed with cocktails while they prepared our table and then surprised that they had decorated it for us as we were celebrating birthdays. We all did variations of the tasting menus and paired wine and highly recommend. So much amazing food and drink...and the waiters were exceptionally attentive. Great finale to our time in PV!More

The ambiance was incredible, service impeccable, and the food was 10/10. I loved this place, and I would recommend it to anyone in the Puerto Vallarta area. One of the best dining experiences I've had in years :). Our hosts Luis and Paco as well...as drink specialist Javier were knowledgable and wonderful.More

We went in June during 'Restaurant Week' and had one of the best meals we've ever had. Everything we tried - and amongst our group we tried every single thing on the tasting menu - was delicious. And the service from Gerardo and Luis A...was outstanding. Plus a lovely outdoor dining experience from start to finish. Cannot recommend highly enough. Hope to return sometime on another trip to PV.More

We had dinner on our birthday here and it was a special experience. The food came in small potions that packed a punch. We had a five course dinner with wine pairings. The waiters were awesome.

The service was impeccable. Each dish was exquisitely designed on your plate and the flavors matched the presentation. From the amuse bouche to the potted flower dessert. We always return when we come to PV. Noticed the prices were more reasonable during the pandemic which...was appreciated and refreshing. The indoor garden really is outdoors so you feel totally safe with ventilated air and nice space in between the tables. Must see splurge.More

Cafe des Artistes is by far one of the best gems in Puerto Vallarta for service (Luis was exceptional) and food creativity/quality. The wine list is extensive and has excellent selections. They have a sommelier to assist with food pairing. Beautiful atmosphere and always on...my go-to list whenever I visit. CharlotteMore

We had a magical dining experience at Cafe des Artistes. The atmosphere and the service were exceptional. I really wish we had been able to get a table in the courtyard area, but instead we were seated on an upper deck area - which was...also beautiful. My partner is a real foodie so we were very excited to try this restaurant. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, outstanding quality - but certain dishes just didn't do it for us... not our taste. I hope to return again in the future to try other items on their menu!!More
