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.

A large group of us parked here for a beach day. The food was okay and the drinks (although overpriced) were tasty. Our server was impolite and tried to add extra items to our bill. That was a major turnoff.

Me and my group of friends sat here many days on the beach and had some great cocktails (Miami vice and Margarita's are winners). Apart from the location and drinks though, this place is average. The fish tacos lacked any kind of flavour, ceviche was average and prawn cocktail horrible! To top it off, the service is very slow and... More

This open air restaurant on the beach is Sayulita has a wonderful setting - beach, sand, sea, sun. That's the only thing good about it. The service was okay but it didn't make up for the truly BAD food. The coconut shrimp were coated in a thick tasteless batter that we ended up peeling off and eating the naked shrimp... More

This was our first dinner in town. They brought our first round of margaritas out to our table on the beach and the rest is a bit of blur! I do remember commenting on how obnoxious the beach vendors were. We enjoyed the salsa and chips and our fish tacos were great.

Directly on the beach at Sayulita. Very good value and well prepared food. You must caerfully identify the restaurant, the close competitors try to steal the business.

Unfortunately the service here has gone way downhill since our trip a year ago. I must add the waiters work very hard and run around like crazy, but it looks like they are way understaffed and there are some issues in the kitchen. The food isn't the best, but it's the best place on the beach to get a table... More
