Nice

Surprisingly good. We had the "lechon tacos" that were very a creative invitation to ones palet. The shrimp and tuna are also amazingly well balanced, provinding hints of adventure and wildlife!

We stayed at the St. Regis and they recommended this place -- it was an amazing evening. The service was absolutely fantastic!!!! Every single item we tried on the menu was superb and the wine selection was top notch. From the hostess to the entire service staff was absolutely five-star and decent prices. When we come back to Punta Mita,... More

Tuna Blanca has a new lunch menu and it shines, I'll be back to twice a week to taste all the new items. There is nothing else on our beach to rival these artistic tastes. The use of eatble flowers and beautiful plating along with the best service from Osmar, always one of my favorite waiters and friend make lunch... More

Our first experience two years ago when it was still called Cafe des' Artistes was not a good one. We ordered drinks and waited over 40 minutes for someone to come back to our table. We left money on the table for the two drinks and walked out. We have since returned twice for lunch and had a great experience... More

My family of four (with 2 young kids) went there for dinner on recommendation from our concierge at St. Regis Punta Mita. It was easily the most memorable meal of our whole trip as we were treated like VIP! Alejandro and Octavio made us feel right at home and gave great suggestions from their seafood and steak-based menu. We love... More

Lovely place with a table on the beach, with a terrific view of Banderas Bay. The tasting menu was outstanding. Octavio & Gabriel were servers with very good suggestions. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We travel all around the world and consider ourselves to be very fortunate foodies. We both agree that Tuna Blanca is a true diamond. The art deco styled restaurant has a beautiful ambience along with outdoor dining that is literally on the beach over looking beautiful Vallarta bay. The service is impeccable. The entire staff takes immense pride in their... More
