Love it

Raul was super sweet and very funny, absolutely loved having him as a waiter, the hostess Mariana was so adorable as well, so joyful and full of life, I'm so glad my friends and I decided to come here and we will definitely be back sooner than later.

This was our first visit to Tuna Blanca, which is one of the more expensive restaurants in the area (outside of the gates), andwe were not disappointed. We were the first people in the restaurant, so we had extra attention from the staff, great seating close to the beach. This restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food is beautiful and...

Stopped by one of our favorite local spots for a drink and quick bite to eat and Osmar went above and beyond making sure we had everything we wanted. Bucket of 5 beers - 90 pesos!! Can't be beat. Asked for some chips and salsa and Osmar brought out a variety of dips that were all great. Osmar went above... More

I was looking forward to my dinner at Tuna Blanca. Renowned Puerto Vallarta chef Tierry Blouet has shifted from French cuisine to a Mexican themed dining experience, Unfortunately the meal did not deliver. Each dish we tried was extremely salty, and the spicing was not well balanced. Braised octopus was well cooked and great texture, but salt was predominant. Lamb... More

My family and I wanted to leave the resort for dinner. We made a great choice. There was a beautiful view of the beach. Also, the service and the food was outstanding! The best part of the whole evening was desert. My brother and I were invited into the kitchen to make lots of deserts and put them on a... More

The best meal we had on this trip. We had a table outside, on the terrace, and ordered the tasting menu with wine selection, which was around 80 dlls per person, which is quite reasonable for a restaurant of this quality. The view if the beach is lovely, the staff very helpful, the food incredible. We asked for the pumpkin... More

We only left our great resort in Punta Mita once, and going to Tuna Blanca was a fantastic decision. The service of Gabriel and Gambino was out of this world-- they went out of their way to make it an extremely memorable experience. The food was excellent as expected-- best snapper I've ever had and the lobster my husband ordered... More

Right on the beach, Tuna Blanca lives up to all the TripAdvisor reviews. Freshest fish, and great service give this restaurant 4 stars out of 5. They did a special birthday dessert, including a firecracker on a surfboard. Pastry chef is awesome. Had the fish of the day and shrimp dinners. The only thing preventing this restaurant from earning five... More
