Excellent veggie taco, agua fresca and steak tacos! All around fresh and good, best tacos in town! We'd go back, again and again!

Check out the itacate for which this place is named but be ready for a large cheese-wrapped feast. Not for anyone who is avoiding fat but a yummy new treat us.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but if you like cheese this is your kind of place. They specialize in a dish I have never heard of, which is a cheese wrap essentially. My friends loved it. I'm not that into cheese.

Yesterday I went with two friends to eat here. It is usually fabulous, but yesterday we had a nightmare experience. One of my friends forgot to order his tacos with flour tortilla and that just seem to be the end for us. They explained to US how the tacos were ready to be served and couldnt be switched out. Haved... More

We were on the search for good tacos and decided to wait on a table here. They directed us in to the small building and then up a tiny spiral stair case to the top floor. It was a really unique setting for excellent tacos. The Itacate style tacos are fried with cheese. All tacos come with a large variety... More

We had an array of outstanding tacos here - all were delicious, but I would most highly recommend the one with pork and bean salsa! So amazing.

After spending the day in town we stumbled upon this small hole in the wall. The place was packed and rightly so. The shrimp tacos and carne asada tacos were great but the real surprise was the itacate with any fish/shrimp/veggie or meat!!! Inexpensive and outstanding'

I ate here 3 times, and it was my favorite food in all of Sayulita. Their aguas frescas, quesadillas (especially the mushroom one), and tacos are fantastic. I only wish they served margaritas!

The steak tacos are very good. We had a table of 8 and each person got their meal at a different time. The tacos were great, other items only "so so". The Agua Fresco was really really good, with fruit and red coloring, it tasted a bit like strawberry and hibiscus water. Very good. It took a long long time... More
