Go here for food and view of the sea

My husband and I came here two times and enjoyed it both times. Beautiful spot on the shore. Good food. Good drinks. Good service. Liked it enough that we came back and brought friends. Views of Banderas Bay. Quiet town.

The original El Anclote serves a very tasty breakfast. The 3 of us all had something different and we were all happy. Leticia's chef makes a very good chillequales (sp) in green or red sauce. I had green sauce that was yummy with just the right amount of heat. Service is attentive and very efficient without hovering! Having the beautiful... More

Original Anclote restaurant and bar. Located in downtown Punta De Mita. I highly recommend Yellow fin Tuna dinner. Clean, friendly, excellent quality food and service, very reasonable prices, and right on the beach. My wife and travel frequent and I cannot give any better recommendation!

We specifically came for the live music on Friday and there was a really good 4 pc band, first covering some typical American music, then totally rocking out on some Mexican/Latin music. The food was good, the service was great, and the location was beautiful. It was virtually empty but we had a good time nonetheless.

We had breakfast here while staying in an apartment nearby. The breakfast was delicious and the owner is one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to meet. She knew that I was feeling miserable with a very bad cold and was kind enough to give me a gargle medication and some tree tea oil to inhale. I... More

I had the pleasure of dining with my family a few nights ago during our stay in Punta Mita, and we couldn't have been happier. All of our meals were simply great, everyone was very satisfied and the service was tremendous. I had was able to speak with the owner who is a sweet hardworking woman and promised her a... More

Today we decided to take a bus ride to Punta de Mita. We are staying in la Cruz, and for a mir 12 pesos each way, we had a great day looking a shops and exploring the Punta de Mita area. After swimming we decided to eat on the beach at El Anclote and so glad we did - awesome!... More

We walked off the Panga boat trip and found Anclote on the beach a few steps away. Enjoyed some drinks, good food, and the company of Letty who has owned the place for 28 years. We had a memorable afternoon hanging out here and know we will be back to Punta de mita, and Anclote.

We didn't eat more than the ceviche and nachos (or this review could be higher), but the drinks and service were great! The owners were very friendly, and the wife even offered to drive us (a group of 7 girls) back to our condo since we'd been drinking there for a few hours. Loved everything about Punta Mita, but the... More
