Amazing. We sat outdoors and had a great time. The ambience is gorgeous, the vibes romantic. They even gave me a birthday surprise we didn’t know about. The food and drinks were incredible, there was even a violinist playing by request at each table. Flawless...execution.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

-The setting & ambience in the garden is spectacular. 5 stars. -The food was very good - we did the tasting menu and it was 90% hits, including the vegetarian tasting menu. -Service was a bit cheesy & hollow. The restaurant is trying to do...too much with the bells & whistles, and misses out on providing genuine hospitality. The last 30 minutes we were forgotten. We were solicited to fill out a Tripadvisor survey and mention our server to help them win a contest. We were never presented a bill - they just brought a credit card terminal to the table and asked us loudly if we wanted to leave a tip and what percentage. We were so desperate to leave we didn’t push back, but the overall service definitely left a bad taste in our mouths.More

There was very little food. The servings were way too small. We arrived at 6pm & was seated at a table in a high traffic area & With nothing to look at. After we had eaten our small little dinner & dessert, we waited for...at least a half hour before anyone even looked our way. We were so happy to finally pay our bill & get out of there.More
