This place is amazing. We loved everything about it, the quality of the food, professional service, the design of the interior. We also were fortunate to meet Daniel. He is a professional piano player who really made our evening special. He created this special atmosphere of a high end restaurant. And he performed beautifully. Such a treat!

We come to Puerto Vallarta a couple times a year and always eat at Cafe des Artistes a couple times during our stays. It has ultimately been my favorite restaurant.

However, our dinner on Wednesday was a little disappointing. The food has always been beyond delicious and this time it was just ok. There was nothing special about the Tuna. It wasn’t very flavorful. I got the short ribs and it was nothing special either. The Camembert sauce wasn’t very flavorful.

On another note, the garden was closed so we had to eat inside. During a pandemic and Covid, I’m careful about eating indoors. It was disappointing to see many of the waiters wearing a plastic mask type thing under their chins. Their mouths and noses were exposed making us uncomfortable to dine inside. The entire staff should be wearing a proper mask with mouths and noses covered.

Very good food, service excellent, music a bit too loud and the waiter insisted on putting us at a table where we were very close to the other table, for some reason they were putting all the customers in the same corner, we asked to change table and they accomodated us.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Cafe des Artiste, and we could not have chosen a venue! The servers and staff made the night memorable and special. The service was outstanding. We dined during restaurant week, and chose from the special menu. The food was excellent! I highly recommend Cafe des Artiste for any special occasion!

Cafe de los artistas es sobresaliente, desafortunadamente nos tomo 3 horas !! todo el proceso de cenar, extrema demora no se la razon. La espera arruino la experiencia de festejar nuestro amigo en su cumpleanos. A decir del camarero llegaron muchas reservas al mismo tiempo. Esto refleja algun problema con la coordinacion y planeacion. Sin emargo como siempre Cafe de los artistas se esmera en un impecable servicio, calidad de la comida y volveremos sin lugar a dudas!

Toda mi experiencia iba magnífica hasta que tuve que ir al sanitario. Tenían un aroma fatal, peor que de cantina de barrio. Espero que para la próxima ocasión, cuenten con una persona que esté en los sanitarios cuidando los detalles.

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.
