Stroll on the beach

This was a very nice experience. sat down and had a couple of cold ones. Our waiter was so attentive and spoke very good English, had a very nice lunch and it was tasty and fresh..did not have to pay to sit and enjoyed the view of the ocean and beach...would go back for sure. Well done.

One of the best spots on the beach to get chairs,umbrella, food and drinks. The owner does need to throw out all his chairs and start over with new. Too many broken chairs with nails protruding. Great wait staff just invest some of your profits into new chairs.

It was hard to chose which restaurant to patronize. Some wanted 250 pesos just to sit there. Capitan Cook's did not have such a charge & we were very happy with this place. The mixed drinks were delicious. The fish & the chicken burritos were fresh & hot & contained peppers rather than beans/rice,etc. Our server Hortensia was attentive &... More

After walking on the beach, we came back to Captain Cooks restaurant. We chose the beach chairs under an umbrella with a table. Jose talked to us as we walked by and we returned after our walk. Others offered us tables for 250 pesos for the day just for table and chairs plus the food and drinks. At Cooks, the... More

This is one of a string of places crammed table to table along the beach, and honestly, it's hard to tell where one starts and one ends. By chance, we ended up here on day 1, and grabbed a bucket of Pacifico to watch the world (and the vendors) parade on by. Yes, saying "no, gracias" can get tiresome, but... More

We stay an afternoon at Captain Cook, a beach bar/restaurant, where we could have an excellent time at the beach, get cold beer with reasonable prices and nice seafood as fish tacos, sarandeado fresh fish. The service was ok, seafood fresh and the only annoying part of the day was the dozens of people offering you different products on the... More

Visit here as part of our trip to Sayulita. Sat on chairs at front overlooking ocean deciding what to have when American guy who had been coming for 10 years recommended the coconut shrimps. Take our advice - if you like shrimps (prawns UK style!) and coconut - you just got to have them. Very good prices and service.

We took the bus to Sayulito from Bucerias to experience the beach there , to see the town and the surfing community. After a walk around the town, which was very different from PV and even Bucerias where we were staying we decided to stop for a drink and to enjoy the beach. We had no idea what to do... More

Great Margaret's and the flank steak tacos were awesome! Thanks for the great service Ernesto! Great location, free WiFi, prices are good, just a great place for lunch on the beautiful beach of Sayulita.
