Best food of our trip

They are right on the beach and the food was awesome and VERY reasonably priced. We were snubbed at some of the other food spots here and defiantly appreciated the staff here!

Captain Cook has a great location right on Sayulita beach. Eating lunch at the restaurant afforded us lounge chairs and an umbrella all day.

Excellent service, good drinks, good food and right on the beach. We ate and drank here 3 times during our stay. The staff always set us up really comfy, adjusted umbrella's, etc. the shrimp tacos and quesadillas are an excellent value. My wife loved the snapper. Clean bathrooms.

Perfect spot to spend the afternoon and watch surfers work the waves of Sayulita beach. Cheaper bucket of beer then in the city. The fajitas and fish tacos that we had for lunch were some of the best we've had in the area! Great staff too!

Found this spot to chill for the day. Nice location, beach chairs right on the beach. Had a great day here drinking margaritas and buckets of beer, eating ceviche and guacamole. thought all was great until that night. everyone in our group that ate the ceviche and limes in the beer got sick! our waiter was great though!

Lovely relaxed atmosphere beach style with options to sit outside or inside. We were on a day visit, a large group and we sat under cover and snacked the afternoon away with seafood, guacamole and beers, swimming every hour or so. Enquire about the cost of the beach chairs before you sit down, believe there is a charge. I'll be... More

Good place, good food. Unfortunately the service is to slow, over 90 minutes to get my food. In the bill service is already included, around 10%, never mind the waitress asked for additional tip. Beyond that it's OK.
