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.

Kid friendly place!

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... read 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.

I ate here twice. Once for dinner, once for lunch. Day 1 dinner: Got the "mexican platter", which is pretty much an "everything" sampler platter with a lot of food. Tamales, enchiladas, chile relleno, arrachera, rice and beans. It was all good, but the chile relleno wasn't great. Not bad, but not 5 stars either. Average. Not the rave reviews... More

Love sitting outside at this place, enjoying their great strawberry daiquiri. Great food and service, in the heart of downtown Sayulita. We've eaten here a couple times and everything we have ordered is delicious

My hubby and I adore Mexican food and had to say that most of the "Mexican" food we ate in Sayulita was not great. However, we stumbled on this place one night and it was truly the best meal we had our entire trip. The tortilla soup is FANTASTIC (seriously, you have to have it) and the Chile Rellenos were...

Amazing Cafe for breakfast - has covered outdoor seating and tables along the town square. We had the most attentive service - and English speaking servers.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is hopping! Street-side seating, along with comfy indoor seating. But the Chile Rellenos was the best!!!
