When I travel to foreign countries I normally opt to visit restaurants that offer traditional meals , taste typical dishes of the region and learn more about the culture. However I also like to discover this “best kept secrets” and I have found French dining at its best in Mexico. 




“Best kept secrets” the Piaf Restaurant at the Grand Velas Resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

Grand Velas Resorts are the only 5 diamond all inclusive resorts in Mexico and renowned for its impeccable service and experience.

Wining and dining at Piaf is truly a memorable event that incorporates all the senses. From life music to vibrant signature cocktails, aromas and artful food presentation highlighted with colorful drips of sauces, all this elements are perfect components for a unique French dining.

First thing that strikes you entering “Piaf” is its modern- elegance. Decore integrates elements of wood panels & glass, stunning tree at the center of the restaurant with amber -gold crystal butterflies and red hearts create unique and stylish ambiance ideal for a romantic dinner for two




Menu offers traditional french delicacies with an innovative modern twist. Fusion of flavors and color combined with perfect wine was a true culinary delight. Our degustation menú started off with a crisp salad and poached pear accompanied with crusted brie and grapefruit sauce, followed by artichokes & clam cappuccino with a touch of truffle, dumpling duck confit with pomegranate sauce,  mahi mahi on a bed of grilled asparagus with basil risotto and we finished off with the most decadent dessert : passion fruit mousse with dark chocolate and warm vanilla cream.. this was a highlight of the evening. With each dish we have enjoyed samples of fine Pinot Grigio, Roses and excellent Pinot Noir’s.

Buon Appetite .







TIPS : Restaurant is opened for dinner only, mainly for hotel guests, however it also accepts reservations for non hotel guests and I do recommend you arrange for your table in advance.

Proper dress code is required and now flip flops or shorts are allowed so be sure to dress up as it should be in any fine French dining restaurant.

Grand Velas offers other fine dining and casual restaurants for your indulgent. Property itself is stunningly beautiful,some suites offer private pools with incredible views of the Pacific, beautifully gardened common areas and infinity pools, five star spa and endless activities.
