Went with a group of four and had an awesome dinner. We tried every appetizer on the menu and each had the daily special. Great fresh fish. This is a good spot to go if you want to sit down and stay a whole vs grab a taco. We ordered quite a bit of food and wine and wasn't to... More

Not only the best food, but also killer margaritas. Staff will make anything you want, even if it isn't on the menu. We ate here several times and feel it is much better than the highly rated Mary's. We had tacos, burritos, and simple, fried mahi mahi on veggies. Everything on their menu is noteworthy and their flexibility of making... More

We had booked to have dinner in another restaurant, then arrived to find out that it was a fixe prix menu and outrageously expensive even by Canadian standards. So we paid for our drinks and headed out. What a great surprise to have fallen upon this restaurant. The atmosphere was super fun and I think it is probably always like... More

We checked out the menu because they had a very nice saxophonist outside. It was very busy but we didn't mind waiting. For everything we ordered- drinks, app, meal- the young food runners would take our plates around the whole place until we flagged them down. The guac was watery and a little bit browned. The margaritas were so-so, the... More

Delicious and a great price! The Azteca bowl is huge and can feed a small army...the chille releno was perfect! Good prices and faster service than any other restaurant I ate at during my visit.

The tortilla soup was good but the bowl was smaller than we expected. Chile Releno also tasty but shrimp was extra cost which it shouldnt be. wine most expensive we paid (8 pesos) where most places were 5-7.

Ranking high on my scale but not at the top in SAYULITA is this spot. Chile Rellenos are the specialty here and they are really good. Prices here are a bit high for SAYULITA but it's a good choice for a family and those who want a solid mex place with a sit down setting.
