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.

We went for dinner and got great service, a awesome meal visually and sensually. My wife order the chef special 5 course meal surprise and we were all blown away by the variety, taste and site appeal of the 5 dishes she got. Everyone else also had great food and beverages...and the view on the water was terrific on the... More

We went to Tuna Blanca and it was fantastic! They took great care of us...the waiters were really cute with my grandkids.. the food was great. They have a fantastic dessert which arrives on a surf board, with fire works. It's a great restaurant.

Tuna blanca is a gem. No ifs no buts, it's a gem not to be missed. The setting is beautiful, the food is delicious, the drinks are incredible, and the service is great. Let señor Osmar make you his passion fruit margarita with coconut froth. It was the best margarita I have ever tasted. I also loved the cucumber margarita... More

Several years ago we visited the sister restaurant, Cafe de Artistas in Peuerto Vallarta. It was amazing so we wanted to try Tuna Blanca. After we were seated inside, we wondered if our experience would be the same. The atmosphere inside is very casual and not quite what we expected after having eaten at Cafe de Artistas. However, the food... More

This place was great with a really nice tasting menu. Compared to the prices we pay in the Bay Area this was very reasonable. The atmosphere is quite nice as well and they have indoor seating if you prefer which is rare. Since we were there on our honeymoon they brought us a very nice surprise at dessert. This is... More

What a great restaurant. Best cocktail I have had during our whole trip and spectacular view as the sun goes down. So atmospheric. As we looked at the menu the most brilliant Mexican singers walked by the beach and played my request of Hotel California as the sun was going down. My 11 and 9 year old looked in awe.... More
