You had my heart with Victor's Queso Fundido and a bartender's biggest pina colada in the southern hemisphere

We actually came here twice during the space of about 5 days ... the first time when we wandered into town looking for just a nice bar with fun cold drinks, a view of the water and a nice place to sit and people watch. We ended up with the world's biggest pina colada for our daughter (the photo I... read more

Wonderful location, wonderful ambiance and food to match. Service is excellent and the lovely Proprietor along with our sweet young woman Server gave us the most perfect experience. Loved the Margaritas, Chips, Guacamole, Salsa, Gambas, Ceviche, Tacos, "Caprese", Burger, Wings, Papas, Chicken... We were sweetly cautioned by both the Owner and Server that they felt we ordered too much food... More

We sat at the bar with our kids since all the tables were taken. Had good ribs and burgers, as well as a very delicious fried shrimp appetizer.

Food was good and service was good, but our hotel outdid them for the menu item we enjoyed.. Cannot beat the view though and the restaurant is very cute.

The food was amazing, and our waiter Henry was a riot! Highly recommended. They played playoff hockey on our 2nd to last night there as well, which was very hard to come by in Mexico.

Great place to go in the early evening...especially if you like sports. They play Hispanic music and watch both soccer and American Sports. The ribs are to die for as well as the variety of drinks. I like beer and it is always cold. The servers are friendly and the prices are not bad. Live to sit at the bar... More

We were here the week of April 21, so it was a little slow around town. The food was spectacular, great variety of surf and turf. Around the table we had chicken, Ahi Tuna, Shrimp and steak, and everyone bragged that they had selected the best meal on the menu. Watch out for the drinks, though...a bit pricy, but you... More

There are a surprising number of very good restaurants on the beach in Punta de Mita so it takes effort to set yourself apart. Blue Shrimp does an outstanding job of preparing some of the world's best local shrimp in a variety of ways. I particularly enjoyed the tequila shrimp. What sets Blue Shrimp apart is the incredibly friendly service... More

The shrimp dishes and all sea food were excellent. The restaurant sits 8 feet above the beach so you have a perfect view of the sea without being bothered by the beach walkers and sellers. We loved the ambiance.
