Located just once block before Sayulita's main plaza, the Sayulita Cafe restaurant offers locals and visitors an incredible and authentic dining experience. A full bar with a plentiful wine list is available. Make sure to try one of the famous margaritas while you wait to be seated.

Best Meal in Sayulita

Short & sweet... this was our favorite meal of a one week trip. The whole red snapper was the best we had (out of 3), and the chili rellenos was unique & unforgettable! Our service was also superb. Highly recommend!

Was in Sayulita with a large group of friends and some of us kept going back for more. Great dinner spot with some awesome menu options. The waiters will tell you what's most popular - definitely go with their recommendations. They were delicious.

We ate dinner here two nights and the food was great. We sat upstairs which is nice so that you are off the road. The fajitas were fantastic.

Sayulita Cafe was recommended by an ex-pat couple who live here. It was their first choice in town and they told us to go there first. A very wise decision. The chiles rellenos made with shrimp were spectacular. It's the house special, and well deserved for that place of honor. The carne asada had been marinated to perfection and was... More

It was a surprise to find this place at this little town. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and the food is really good. I tried the Chiles rellenos. Definitely recommend the place. Try to get a table at the second floor to have a nice view of the town.

We were able to get seated tight away and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The chicken & shrimp fajitas are wonderful! The beef molcajete was presented beautifully, but the base wasn't quite as "beefy" as we've experienced in the past. We'd still recommend it, however! The service was great & prices reasonable. Good place to eat!

My boyfriend and I shared a nice dinner here on our last night in Sayulita. Service was great and the view of the square was nice. We shared the stuffed avocado appetizer which would have been enough, then I had fajitas and he had bbq chicken. Both were good, not remarkable.

We dined at the Café for dinner and had our choice of a seat on the upper floor, or a streetside table. We chose the streetside table and it was a lively spot to enjoy our meal and people watch. Margaritas are very good. Service is swift and attentive. My husband had the Chile Relleno and it was sublime, my... More
