Staying at the St. Regis. We had been here years ago when it had a different name. Liked it very much. Love it now. The food was outstanding. We shared the ceviche. At our request they left off the capers and olives. Then I had the tuna and my wife had the octopus. Both cooked to perfection. The margaritas were... More

Really enjoyed lunch at Tuna Blanco. Beautiful restaurant on the Punta Mita Anclote strip. Osmo and his team are super attentive, fun and make the experience even more enjoyable. We had lunch there and thought it was fantastic. Even ordered food there to take to our room for a snack one day. (tuna sandwich/guacamole is amazing). At night the restaurant... More

The food here would stand out in any major city. But the service was even better. Allen took great care of us (and my 3 year old). We will definitely be back.

Have not been here since the change from the more formal menu of "Cafe Des Artistes" to "Tuna Blanca" which seems a little more casual and more "Mexican" inspired. Service and food was very good. If you like a bit more formal but still casual with a distinct Mexican flair and better pricing than before then this is the place

This Valentine's Day I decided to celebrate it at Tuna Blanca with my girlfriend. All I can say is that I had a great time and food was delicious! Another thing I have to mention is, our waiters, Miguel and Alan, did an awesome job and they were really nice and friendly with us! We will for sure come back!

We had a wonderful meal at Tuna Blanca during our recent stay in Punta Mita. There were 4 adults and 2 small children in our party but the place seems to be perfect for families or adults celebrating a special occasion. We opted to sit outside but the inside restaurant looked trendy in keeping with an "all white/sophisticated" theme. The... More

My family and I went to Punta de Mita from 1/31/15 to 2/8/15. We traveled with another family and together we had 5 kids under the age of 8. We were skeptical about going to Tuna Blanca because it looked so fancy so we ate everywhere else on the strip first. We then decided to bring the crew to Tuna... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dining experience on Thursday, 2/19/2015 at Tuna Blanca with my husband. Both of our dinners were delicious. I had the catch of the day, mahi-mahi, and my husband had the fried lobster tail. By far this has been our best dining experience during the weeklong vacation in Mexico. Dessert with the flame show of the "sexy"... More
