I have gone twice in the last 10 days or so, after having not gone there for a couple of years. It's under new management since I was last there but remains as good as I remember it. I had poisson du jour on both visits and my companions have had other dishes like the salade nicoise and the steak... More

Last night we (myself, my wife and our daughter) went to La Cigale. When we arrived around eight the place was packed and we were late for our reservation. They seated us as soon as there was a cleared table - which was very nice. The person who seated us and apparently took the reservation told us that he did... More

People who spend the winter in PV have been talking about this place and now I see why. It's charming, great location and delicious-- every dish. I had the lovely beef bourguignon, others in our party had mussels, steak-- all were raving and intent on coming back. Make reservations; it fills up.

This was our third visit to La Cigale and won't be our last! Everytime we dine here, we love it a little more. This quaint little French Bistro won't leave you disappointed. Be sure to make reservations. On this visit I enjoyed for my starter a large steaming portion of the French Onion Soup which was outstanding. My main course... More

Wondering the streets of Puerto Vallarta looking for dinner and we saw a patio where the tables were full and it was up out of the way - always a good sign. Luckily we got the last table inside. The restaurant is small and it fun to watch them cook in such a small kitchen. The service was great, French... More

Having been here in prior years, I was looking forward to my visit last night. The setting is a charming, small French bistro. I ordered the grilled artichoke which was good but then was told the fish of the day with Hollandaise was Red Snapper. It arrived looking like chicken and I sent it back saying it wasn't red snapper... More

Had great seats by the kitchen - fun to watch 4 people in a very small space - very creative. The food was really good - included fresh salads like a caprese with fresh mozzarella. Great moules and pomme frites. Wonderful seafood vol au vent, salad Nicoise, beef bourguignone and skirt steak. Corkage is 200 pesos. The atmosphere is very... More

Very cool ambiance but food in 2 star range. Red snapper fillet was over cooked and thus dry. Cordon bleu also over cooked but better than fish. Service was in one star range. Waiter kept reaching across our table and directly b/t us to take/return menus from bar. Finally had to move menus myself. Had to wave waiter down multiple... More
