Highly recommend

Scenery was gorgeous, staff was incredibly friendly. Food and drinks were amazing. Beach vendors were a little much but some were fun to talk to so it balanced out.

The food here is not bad, do not take me wrong, it's only that I did not find a difference between what i could get here, or any other seafood joint along the bay. Prices are also expensive, I've had other better experiences both in quality and price in other places in the bay, i've been around.... The best part... More

My family and I first stopped by for breakfast and had a great experience with delicious meals, as well as the attentive and caring staff. We loved the freshly squeezed juices they had from various fruits, like orange, kiwi, mango, and tasty shakes from various fruits. We even met the owner of the restaurant, who has been a long time...

A nice location right on the beach. Staff was attentive and truly made us feel welcome. Food was good-- not outstanding but pleasant. Less commercialized than some of the others in town. Assuming this restaurant is family owned and operated.

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
