Food was good, though not exceptional - multiple items were not available and we were there for an 8pm seating. Service was lacking - was challenging to get a wine menu. Space is nice - VERY casual.

Enjoyed a nice dinner with a great bottle of wine and very attentive service. We started with the escargot which was very good and I had the mussels which were cooked perfect and my husband had the cordon bleu wonderful too. We finished off with profiteroles and we were stuffed and very happy with overall meal and service. It may... More

My second time there after last year visit and still very good, last time I got the beef boerignon so delicious, a must on this restaurant and this time I got white wine mussels as starter and the seafood vol-au-vent, my husband got the fillet mignon, great dishes! For sure I'll come back again on my next trip.

We never miss our 2 or 3 dinners at La Cigale when we are in Puerto Vallarta for a few reasons : First the food is simply delicious, you have to be amazingly picky or boringc not to love it.. is not a gastronomic restaurant but a french bistro just like in Paris with simple tasty classics. Second, the restaurant... More

We ordered the quiche as an appetizer and found the crust to be almost identical to pastry crust for dessert so it tasted a bit sweet for a traditional quiche. The main courses were tuna, ordered medium. It came out seared but not warm, and largely very rare. Chicken cordon bleu was a bit over cooked. Service and atmosphere were... More

Have been coming here for over ten years. To start the apps were really well done. I asked the server for a recommendation for dinner. He suggested the Cordon Blue. I asked if he was sure. He confirmed. The chicken was over cooked and tough. My companion had the daily fish special, it came out half cooked. The manager did... More

It it is owned by a wonderful couple Catalina From Panama and Christophe from Marseilles! The steak Tatar along with their escargot and steak and fritz are amazing! Make sure you save room for a scrumptious dessert!

I had the moules - and took their recommendation as to the cream base for the mussels; very good olive tapanade on toast amuse bouche; very nice atmosphere and when I had a issue with my credit card (I had had "suspected fraud" use earlier in the week in another area) they were VERY helpful in sorting it out -...

Outstanding little French bistro by the Centro Colonia of Puerto Vallarta. Service was perfect, we felt very welcome and even if the restaurant was packed inside and outside, our reservation was respected! My wife ordered onion soup, even better than the one we tried in Parisian bistro, followed by a delicious fresh snapper filet cooked perfectly. I went for baked... More

That night we decided to go out for some fun and try this quaint bistro, we heard it is busy and very picturesque. Indeed, we felt transported into the ratatouille movie in a little street cute parisien bistro corner. The food is terrific and authentic french. Our host and waitress very friendly. We definitely look forward to try again other... More
