Are you a foodie?
Not me - give me a green juice, popcorn, and a salted caramel chocolate truffle and I'm on Cloud 9... BUUUT, then Puerto Vallarta happened. You just 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; or a breathtaking view with world-class tastes at Barcelona Tapas. That's the tip of the ice berg... to see a list of restaurants that we love, CLICK HERE.

CAFE DE ARTISTES
WOWOWWW, 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 very hard 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 Prince William and Princess Kate. 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.
The presentation for Todd's birthday was fun and delightful, with a sparkly firework!
After dessert, we were given another dessert - two raspberry macaroons.... by far the best macaroons I've tasted in PV!
Sigh.... what an evening. Sometimes you can get caught up with the daily hectic details of life ... but remember to always 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 clearly embraces - it's okay for things to get done manana (tomorrow), and to take time to enjoy today.
We both looooved 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 had EVER - anywhere.
We're not the only ones who had a romantic dinner...
