We take pride in feeding both body and soul since the year 2000. Charming family ambiance with a splendid view of the marina, surrounded by art. Meeting point for artists, writers and thinkers. AAA rated 2 diamonds. Look us up in the Mexico Tour Book. Home cooked family recipes. Strictly fresh, natural ingredients, preferably organic, cooked in traditional, no-nonsense ways. We adhere to the "slow food" movement for proper cooking and enjoying. During high season (October through April), we serve breakfast , lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday. Friday, Saturday and Sunday we serve breakfast and lunch only. In low season (May to July) dinner is not served. We close August and September.

If art is your thing, I would come here just for that alone. Great location on the marina with enjoyable views at sunset. Small menu, but variety of food choices. I had the shrimp burger (sounds weird, but it was great without the bun) with a small side salad and yummy fries. Great margaritas. My friend had the quesadilla and... More

We came for dinner and the two specials were amazing and mouth watering. The starter was a mushroom soup in a thin broth. The specials were coconut shrimp and mahimahi in a nut crusted raspberry sauce. This restaurant is worth the trip..... Superb

Great food with amazing views of the marina. A perfect breakfast with excellent coffee. They serve the very best coconut shrimp and make an amazing mushroom soup done in a clear broth. We go there at least 2 or 3 times a week. A great atmosphere with very friendly staff and very reasonable prices for high quality food. Give it... More

Amazing food. Great dinner special with shrimp skewers and grilled veggies. Service staff and owner were extremely friendly and in particular, accommodating to our active 20 month old daughter. I highly recommend for anyone visiting the area. Estudio is a short walk from vidanta resort and has far better quality food, prices and service than we found at the resort.... More

One of our favorite places in Nuevo Vallarta, we go here at least once a week when we stay at the Grand Mayan. We make reservations for the evening meals but not for breakfast, which is great. No need to be in a hurry here, the view of the marina is always interesting.

Dined here recently. Very pleasant evening with relaxed casual atmosphere, friendly service, and varied casual fare menu. Three couples in our group. Nice outdoor harborside seating. Pleasant visit with our artist host, who shared some of his works with us. Easy walking distance to Grand Mayan/Grand Luxxe resort.

I was staying within walking distance of the Estudio Cafe and had the pleasure of eating there 3 times. First, for breakfast with a couple that had initially recommended the restaurant. Fabulous eggs, fresh juice, and tasty bread. I had dinner there twice. The dinners were also wonderful. There is a real sense of quality about the people and the... More
