Cafe des Artistes Bistro

100% love it
Elegant dining
With an impressive selection of wine and decor to die for, Cafe des Artistes has been a staple in the Puerto Vallarta restaurant scene from chef Thierry Blouet. Great date spot to bring a special someone. Everything about the place is meant to impress.

      Nice French/Mexican fusion!!!!
      I had high hopes about Cafe des Artistes. Really high!!!! The food is exceptional. It's creative. It's very Mexican with strong French influence. The place is gorgeous!!!! It looks like a museum!!!! The garden is equally gorgeous BUT PEOPLE CAN SMOKE THERE - UGH!!!! I ordered the lamb chops and taboule. I didn't really like my taboule appetizer. The lamb chops were to die for!!!! They were not lamby at all. Perfect!!!! They have exceptional choices for wine!!!! Service was top notch!!!! My matcha white chocolate cake really disappointed me. I am a huge matcha fan and the matcha flavor was just not there. We got foie gras and macarons compliments of the chef!!!! What can I do without at Cafe des Artistes? Smoking in their gorgeous garden!!!! They have too many dishes with my least favorite "very Mexican" ingredients (yucky things that repeatedly made it to our dinner table as I was growing up) - like chayote squash - ewwww!!!! What stands out at Cafe des Artistes? Exceptional meat!!!! Sheer beauty!!!! Four stars!!!! Cafe des Artistes is really ridiculously great!!!!

      The most luxurious meal you'll have in PV!
      Great indoor place; very impressive service and creative menu. Great place for a group reservation or a romantic meal; should hit up after visiting the galleries.

      This is the "splurge" restaurant to go to in PV. Perfect for a quiet date, but not necessarily for a raucous crowd. Crowd skews towards older and straight, but enough gays around to feel comfortable. Food was of excellent international design, quality and preparation - with prices to match. Be sure to sit in garden out back, gaze up at the stars and toast your sweetie.

      Beautiful setting and delish!
      Awesome location right on the river banks, views are beautiful. Restaurant is very pretty. Would be a great date spot. Pricier place, but worth every peso. A nice treat. Good lunch specials too if you want to try it out.

      just returned to des artistes after a few years, and it is as good, if not better than ever. make sure to request a seat on the outdoor patio. the sea bass and the butterfish are highlights and the tuna sashimi is great starter. the will definitely be your most expensive meal in PV, but it is well worth saving for. Great service too

      Great food. Even better atmosphere. Make sure you get a table on the back patio. It's an unforgettable experience, and one that you should schedule for your next trip to PV.
