Surprising

We went to Blue Shrimp on a Tuesday. And the reason to be honest, was that the Tuna Blanca restaurant was closed. And this was the only localy recomended place open. So we where gladly surprised to find a well furnished and good setting restaurant. We sat at a cool table by the shore of the ocean... read more

Absolutely outstanding. Service location views and most importantly quality of food, excellent. When you don't worry how much the bill will be you have had a good time. We enjoyed it that much we went back for our anniversary meal. To say we were looked after was an understatement. Watched the sun going down whilst sipping cocktails and eating a... More

I recently vacationed in Puerto Vallarta where we visited the Blue Shrimp in the town of Punta Mita. Great food! Great service, and definitely worth a visit! We ordered guacamole that was made in front of us, and I had carne asada that was very tasty. Location was right on the beach. Beautiful view, and nice and cool in the... More

The chef at this restaurant is definitely doing a lot right. A nice amuse of snapper ceviche to start was great. Guacamole table side - great with what looked like house make corn tortilla chips. I enjoyed a pineapple ginger margarita a lot, the rim of the glass with a little chili pepper on it. I had the Aqua chili... More

We overslept and missed our reservation at another restaurant so were rushing at 10:45 to find a place that would serve us. Luckily we found the Blue Shrimp, they were about to close but agreed to let us in. The service and quality didn't suffer in the least, everyone was solicitous and helpful and the food was quite good as... More

Visited Blue Shrimp in June with a group of about 13 celebrating my birthday along with two others! The ambiance here is wonderful, as it's on the beach looking out onto the ocean. The Margaritas are fabulous - very strong, but yummy! Enjoyed the queso fundido, guacamole and their selection of shrimp dishes are all excellent!! The service was great... More

This beautiful, tropical themed spot on the surf has an excellent menu rich with fresh foods and flavors, great cocktails, a movie-set location and unmatchable service. It was a 20 minute drive from the villa in Sayulita, but would be worth a daily drive for a leisurely meal and drinks. Besides amazing seafood preparations ranging from fish tacos to a... More

This place was so good that we ended up eating here a few times during our recent trip. The grilled calamari appetizer is a must try- tender, perfectly cooked, and lightly seasoned. Friendly and attentive wait staff. The beachside location offers a perfect view, whether you want to just stare out at the sea or people-watch (you can usually spot... More

We recently traveled to Punta Mita for our honeymoon. We tried many of the local restaurants, and i have to say ALL of them were delicious. Blue Shrimp, however, stood out as our favorite dinner spot of the entire week! The fish tacos were amazing and the surf/turf (select the curry shrimp) was DIVINE!
