Tuna Blanca with the style and essence of Cafe des Artistes, but with a Mexican menu and atmosphere, beach type, chic and romantic, that gets in to a fusion with the best products of the region, organic, cultivated by the hands of local producers and fresh seafood provided by the fisherman of the Anclote beach. There is no doubt, an enigmatic restaurant, an obligated visit in Punta Mita.

Lovely tuna steak sandwich & sangria. Staff was friendly without hovering. I had planned on a rooftop breakfast but arrived too late. This option on the beach gave a great view of surfers.

Recommended by a honeymooning couple of friends, and first night of Restaurant Week in Puerto Vallarta and surrounds brought us to Tuna Blanca for the first time. Living in the area, we have dined many times in Punta Mita, so are able to make experienced comparisons. The main menu was varied and enticing and the RW menu was equally mouth... More

We enjoyed our meal at Tuna Blanca, however, I think if I was going to go back I would just go for dessert and coffee drinks. They create a special atmosphere with there flaming after dinner coffees and desserts creatively presented to the table on a surfboard! Go for the flowerpot!

This restaurant was recommended to us during our recent two week holiday by our hotel conceirge. Our trip was all inclusive but we wanted to eat outside of the resort as it was my birthday. We arrived at 7pm and didnt leave til after 10.30pm. The view was very pretty and we watched the sunset. The decor of the restaurant... More

My wife and I had one of the best meals in our lives at Tuna Blanca. We consider ourselves foodies, and this surpassed our expectations. Couple the food with the "on the beach" dining experience, perfect service, and the over the top desserts, this was an experience to remember. Special thanks to Ravi-Alejandro, who went out of his way to... More

We dined at Tuna Blanca numerous times during our week long trip to Punta de Mita. The night we arrived I had an amazing dinner of giant shrimp cooked table side over hot rocks and my husband enjoyed red snapper served with a number of lovely sauces. Everything was perfect from the amuse bouche, the incredible margarita to the preparation... More

Food is fresh and inventive, service is beyond reproach. Gabriel and Raul did an amazing job--were personable, present (but not TOO present) and gave great recommendations. The on-the-beach table was perfect for our anniversary dinner and the passion fruit martini was delish!

This is a very special place! With tables on the beach, or barely under the eaves and within a dining room, you cannot go wrong with any of your choices--especially to be there! The food is fantastic, and you MUST NOT skip dessert! Complementing the food is exquisite service (if you don't fall in love with Gabriel and Raul, you... More
