Highly recommended

It´s been a while...but it´s the best always and we always recommend it. You can´t go wrong for a fantastic dinner right on street level. Eat on the street or in the restaurant, for a romantic, or a group dinner everyone will be impressed.

Great value. The waiters are a hoot. Love sitting out on the street and soaking it all in. Rellenos galore. Fish tacos. And of course the marge.

Came here one night for dinner. My husband had eaten here several years before and raved about their food. They did not disappoint. We ordered the molcajete, a local cuisine and the fresh fish which was mahi mahi or dorado that night. The portions are huge and the food was fresh and flavorful. A definite must if you're in Sayulita.

Had the luck of wondering into this restaurant our 2nd day. Loved the atmosphere, loved the choice to sit inside away from street noises and car exhaust. The people are so friendly, adjusted fans so we were comfortable in their very nicely decorated dining room. We have eaten there twice in the past week. The bbq pollo was great. My... More

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 Sayulita cafe and were greeted by... 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
