Most Romantic Restaurant in Vallarta Is

Updated: Jun 25

Are you a foodie?

Not me - give me a green juice, popcorn, and a salted caramel chocolate homemade ice cream and I'm on Cloud 9... BUUUT, then Puerto Vallarta happened.

You CANNOT live in Puerto Vallarta without becoming a love-craved food obsessor!

The number of INSANELY AMAAAAZING RESTAURANTS in Vallarta are mind boggling.

From the best mouth-watering street tacos; a peaceful breakfast on the ocean at La Palapa; fine dining with the best mariachi band in Mexico at The Iguana; an inspiring experience at an old Hacienda and Art Gallery - Di Vino Dante; a breathtaking view with world-class tastes at Barcelona Tapas, or scintillating dining in (or delivery when we want to stay home) from Siam Thai or Bravos.

and the most romantic restaurant in vallarta


WOWOW, hellooooo sexy romantic dining experience!

I surprised my husband and took him to Cafe de Artistes for his 55th birthday. We heard the ambiance in this restaurant is like no other in Vallarta.

The night we went, it was raining cats and dogs, so the garden seating was closed, but it didn't matter.

As soon as we took one step inside Cafe de Artistes, we were transported to a different world. A world where you're treated like a prince and princess.

A world of eclectic elegance, soft lighting, and inspiring light romantic music

We were taken to a table with confetti for Todd's birthday on the second level near the garden. The pitter patter of the rain on the roof made the night even more magical.

Mahi mahi with thinly sliced zucchini and tantalizing flavors

Salmon with sinful textures and flavors

The presentation for Todd's birthday was fun and delightful, with a sparkly firework!

After dessert, we were given another dessert - two raspberry macaroons.... yum!

Classy . cozy piano bar

Sigh.... what an evening.

Sometimes you get wrapped up with the daily hectic details of life ... but remember to have a romantic evening.

This 'us' time at a romantic place was just what we needed. We're learning a valuable lesson here that the Mexican culture embraces - it's okay for things to get done manana (tomorrow), to take time to smell the roses.

We both loved Cafe de Artiste and look forward to going back - perhaps not only the most romantic dinner in Vallarta, but the most romantic dinner we've ever had.

And for Larleen's romance...
