This French Bistro is a very romantic place in a lovely outdoor setting. One block away from our Lady of Guadalupe and the ringing bells added to the atmosphere. The waitpersons spoke English and we're very friendly. I ordered the Steak Tartar and it was prepared table side, and fabulous. My husband ordered the Flap steak with pommes frites. It... More

I had passed this restaurant many times in my 5 visits to Puerto Vallarta. Sixth time charm, we decided to eat here and it's a beautiful memory now! We ordered a red wine, which was perfect for the complimentary tapanade and bread we were served. The hubby had onion soup and it was great (he's a bit of an onion... More

Mussels Provençal and garlic frites were the best mussels (of any kind) we've had here in PV.The specials of the day; red snapper and a nicely priced bottle of Pinot Grigio were lovely. Vegetables that came with the fish were a standout. La Cignale offers a fine indoor and outdoor taste that is Perfectly Provençal right in el Centro of... More

My wonderful mussels arrived, but my husband's entrée did not until several minutes later. His food was cold and when he told the waiter, the waiter told him he had tasted his food and it was not cold. He asked if he wanted another dish. My husband just asked them to heat it up--they did and it was delicious. Maybe... More

Good food, good ambience but not terribly French! I loved my portabello mushroom with cheese and spinach and others had seared tuna, so more the menu of PV. Very good service and value--would definitely go there again--and if they added crepes to their menu...........

We had an excellent meal and we're lucky to be seated without a reservation. Before we get to the many positives, the only negative was the hard sell on the daily wine bottle special. My husband can't have alcohol right now due to a transient medical condition, so we only wanted wine by the glass for me. I should not... More

Ok so if you have been lucky enough to eat in France a few times this place does not come close however the food is pleasant enough and if you are spiced out it makes a nice change. The real treat however with this place is to sit outside and have a glass of wine before going somewhere else for... More

Had the moules frites, as well as the escargots and the goose liver, then had the beef bourgignon for the main (we split the others amongst 4) All in all very good. One diner said the best meal we had in PV
