This place was our favorite for the past 4 years. Every time we've eaten there we walked away satisfied that we had a meal worthy of the price. Not this time as our dec 21st 2014 meal was a huge disappointment. To start the chips and guacamole were ok but come on guys 6 chips is too few The old... More

We stopped here at random on our first night in Sayulita. The food was very good. My wife says it is the best food she has had in Sayulita (our vacation is nearly over now), I think I agree with her although the food in this town has been especially good everywhere we have eaten. My dish was a sort... More

Easy seating-indoor or outdoors...I'll always take a patio table! Touristy Ordered the mixed platter so I could taste the relleno, etc. Tamale was sorta weak, arrrancha was tasty and the relleno was quite good. Though it was a $20 meal, it was worth it. The only thing they missed...Put chips on the table gratis ( I shouldn't have to ask... More

Zuppa Azteka con carne was what was indicated on the menu, and you need to have surfed or trekked all day to finish this bowl of soup. Impeccable in taste and texture. We had had Aztek soup a few times before in Costa Rica and Mexico; this one was the best. Delightful. Service was very pleasant. Cost, reasonable.

Ordered the Garlic Shrimp, one of the more pricey items on the menu. The plate came with 6 not-so-big shrimps, some rice and veggies. I could have accepted the meager portion of shrimp had they not had that unmistakable ammonia taste indicating they were "less than fresh". I asked the waiter if they could possibly find some fresher shrimp but... More

Excellent service and out of this world food. My wife and I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. There are many great places to eat in Sayulita and this is one of the best, if not the best. The stuffed avocado appetizer is excellent! Be sure to try it. One of their featured meals is the...

Really like this restaurant, service was great, food was excellent. The portions are too big so you might want to split, especially if you get the tortilla soup which you absolutely should!!

We went to this restaurant for our last night - perfect. Good service, food and ambience. We had fish - great seafood available in Sayulita being a coastal town.
