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.

Fabulous.

By far one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. We were treated like we were the only guests. Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared. The atmosphere is superb and very relaxing. We will definitely return for many years to come.

Thank you Osmar and Daniel for making our lunch at Tuna Blanca a wonderful experience, anytime we needed something you were there. While here in Mexico you get tired of eating taco's all the time. I was ready for a good hamburger and Tuna Blanca serves a delicious one, my husband got fresh tuna and it also was fresh and... More

My husband and I went to Puerto Vallarta during our Spring break and we drove over to the beautiful little town of Punta Mita to have wonderful dinner. We had made reservations to eat at Tuna Blanca by café des artisites on a beautiful Tuesday evening. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly and attentive staff and were... More

Octavio & Alex were fantastic servers! The food presentation was amazing & Octavio described each meal for us nicely. I loved the atmosphere & decore in the restaurant - the mosaic tiles on the floor were so pretty.

The service was amazing, the food was amazing, overall great experience. Alex and Octavio were always there when needed and extremely helpful in explaining the menu. The menu had some unique food choices including pumpkin soup that I would have never thought to try, but were fantastic.

Staying at the Four Seasons and decided to step out tonight. The staff recommended Sufi if we wanted to leave the resort but we requested Tuna Blanca based upon a Trip Advisor review. As a side note, we travel frequently and dine at many top resturants around the world. We arrived at Tuna Blanca before sunset and were pleasantly greeted... More

We went for a late lunch and the atmosphere on the patio was lovely. We were there for lunch and drinks, both of which were very good. The service was quite good as well.

Outstanding service and phenomenal presentation and quality of the meals. Pumpkin prawn bisque, grilled fancy pelagic fish I have never heard of, fantastic argentine and beef filets could only be surpassed by the grand finale of desserts presented on a life size paddle board. And considering the view of the ocean and number of people dining -with a bottle of... More
