Just look for the romantic candle-lit tables and the line out front waiting for a place to sit. 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.

Great food

We ended up eating at Cafe Sayulita after talking to several of the locals and getting some good reviews from each of them. We originally wanted to go to the pizza restaurant across the street an unfortunately that restaurant opened at 7:00 pm. It was 5:00 pm and we were starving. We came into... read more

Order the Molcajate Azteca. You won't be sorry! Does anyone have the recipe for this? The red snapper was also delicious!

We ate here our first night in Sayulita. Great location (right on Ave. Revolucion) and good service. The carne asada fajitas were delicious!

We have been to Sayulita 3 times now and I would say our meals are always good, but nothing too exciting. My veggie chile relleno was good, and my husband enjoyed the shrimp. What brings us back however, is the great margarita's and the guacamole plate that includes beans and salsa and those big, fat chips. We always sit outside,... More

My toddler loved this place. All the servers were super friendly with him. In fact, he made an instant friend with one of them, insisting on holding hands and going for a stroll down the street with him, ending with a big hug. We went 3X's during our 12 day stay in Sayulita. My favorites were the mole, chicken relleno,... More

I've eaten here a few times and looked forward to their version of the grilled whole red snapper when I returned to Sayulita. Unfortunately this time it was served extremely charred. And, sadly the salad was brown around the edges. Wouldn't recommend the stuffed avocado either, unless you like sweet thousand island dressing. A disappointing meal with inattentive wait staff...

Over priced, average food. You can definitely hit up comparably priced places that are trying a lot harder to offer unique food

I enjoyed the food here; not outstanding but good. They have reasonable prices and a varied menu with a decent selection of beverages and wines. My visit was marred by the service. Unfortunately, my waiter was too busy sitting at a near-by table and visiting with, I assume, his friends. With better service, my experience would have been a more... More

We had the best coffee and cake here mid morning. Staff is friendly and we took some pastries back home.
