We had a nice beach lunch here. Fish tacos were a hit with my son, and I had the Punta Mita ceviche which as fresh and tasty. Drinks were OK but not the best we had. Service was good.

Good place to get a cool drink and sit on the beach. The waiters are attentive and fun. The menu has casual Mexican dishes. Anything in garlic butter is a great choice. The drinks are not as good as they were a few years ago. My frozen lemonade was weak, tasted like it was from a powdered mix.

Good food, right on the beach. Watch the sunset from the upper level balcony. Beautiful! Some of the beach sales people will try and sell you stuff but just say no thanks and they move on.

This is a wonderful casual Mexican restaurant on the beach. The people working the dining room and the kitchen are friendly and attentive. The food is very good at reasonable prices. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here during our week in Punta de Mita, and highly recommend the restaurant.

Locals in Puerto Vallarta told us about this restaurant and it did not disappoint! Our waiter took us to the 2nd level of this beautifully decorated restaurant (yellow & green décor), with a view of the beach. He advised that the seafood meal would be plenty for both of us for lunch (which we appreciated because it definitely was). Lobster,... More

Right on the beach, excellent sea food - very fresh! Don't forget your cameras as the best sunsets happen there! Little expensive for Mexico but worth it. Live music too!

We enjoyed the fish tacos, which included beans and rice. Unlike at some other local places, we were served complimentary chips and delicious salsa too. And we dined on the beach after sunset. Very nice.

We stopped there after snorkeling at Marietas islands, and were pleasantly surprised: very nice and attentive service . They offer a sitting right on a beach with a great ocean view. We were looking for a whole fish , and got exactly what we were looking for. Everything on the menu is reasonably priced.
