We ate twice her and had chicken, beef and fish tacos. Excellent service and fresh ingredients. Only 3 tables so you may need to wait but worth it.

I just spent 8 days in Sayulita. Had lunch at El Itacate four of those days. Awesome tacos. Faves are the shrimp and arrachera. Also loved the chile rellano taco. The tacos come with six condiments to spice things up. Nice guy works the street tables. Cold cerveza. Fantastic!

Don' t know why it is rated so high. Ok fish tacos with condiments. Tables in the street as like so many in Sayulita. Ok, not great.

Amazing. Large portions. We were so hungry when we arrived that we ordered 3 tacos each! Our server warned that that would be plenty! And it was! We took leftovers home for lunch the next day. We enjoyed the arrachera, rib eye, NY strip, chorizo, and based on our server's recommendation, the shrimp with the Jamaica sauce (which ended up... More

You can tell by the tables full of people out front that this is one of the most popular restaurants in Sayulita. And for good reason. The arachera con queso is insanely good if you're a cheese lover, and if not just stick to the arachera -- it's fabulous. Also the owners/staff are excellent. The lemonade is a major draw... More

This was the second stop on our 2 taco stop tour. We started at Taco on the Street. Amazing how different they are. This spot has a few great twist on the taco including grilled onions, grilled tomato salsa, chili onions, about 8 little condiments to add to your taco. We the fish tacos here got a first place and... More

Hands down, these are the best steak tacos in town and maybe anywhere. We never miss this place when we are in town.
