Lots of tequila but overpriced, very average..

Nothing special here unless you're looking for a variety of tequilas. The food is nothing more than average, drinks are small and prices are more than most places. Keep on walking....

The fish tacos are very good - I don't understand why the place got so many bad reviews on TripAdvisor. We had the Marlin's tacos (two tacos for 70 pesos, which makes them 35 pesos each, which is not overpriced). The tacos were filled and delicious, the marlin perfectly spiced and juicy. The local beers are 25 pesos. The service... More

Yuuuummmy!! Good food and good value. The fish and shrimp tacos were very good and I would certainly recommend this stop.

Seems like this town is either a hit or a bust. It looks like a welcoming place but the food here is to kill you. Not exaggerating. I really was praying for a good experience. Skipped the meal, left whining, and hungry. And not willing to try anything else. Didn't help that it was our second bad experience eating in... More

Got food poisoning from this place. Be careful not a pleasurably great experience far away from home. There's def some good pharmacy sin town for drugs to help. My wife and I weren't overly impressed. Adapt or die there's always other restaurants doing better things. The service was great though as we were the only people there for lunch. That... More

Fish tacos are as mexican as they come if you are close to the coast. I love to explore local Mexican foods and love visiting small local family run restaurants. Explore the local flavours and love it !!

I guess when you title your restaurant like this you expect the fish tacos to be great, not just average. That being said, there are a lot of better food choices in Sayulita. Service was also slow even thought there was only 1 other customer.

For some strange reason my local newspaper listed this restaurant as one to visit while in Sayulita. Had I first read the Trip Advisor reviews we would have stayed away! It started with very stale chips which we returned. We ordered 2 fish tacos and 2 fish tostadas. One of the tacos had one thin piece of fish about 1/2... More

My family and all my friends used to love Sayulita Fish Taco. Over the last few years the service and food have gone down hill. I don't visit there any more.

We ate here last night. The food was poor, unfortunately the service was one step below the food. Each meal came out separately and cold. We were very patient, but it was at least 45 minutes between the 1st plate and the last plate for the main course.There are much better choices in Sayulita.
