Pleasant surprise for lunch

Tried the various taco offerings here for lunch with the family. Had a wonderful table overlooking the marina. This was good for the view, but bad for hawkers offering their wares. The kids were surprised at how pleasant the Mexican variety was compared to the Spanish variety. Spanish and... read more

Was full when we got there so we had dinner at the bar. Bad decision. Bartender seemed totally uninterested in serving us dinner. Had to ask for a rag to clean the bar where we were sitting. Had to ask for menus. Had to nearly beg to order. Food was fine but hard to enjoy in that atmosphere. With so... More

Best coconut shrimp I've ever had. The drinks and location make it a great place to dine. The table side guacamole is also a must.

We had a great meal the last night of our vacation at Punta del Mita. Nancy's tuna was the best she's had (and we eat a lot of fresh seafood), and my shrimp was terrific. Large margaritas, too! Tables look out over the beach. Great value.

Blue Shrimp was a nice solid choice for Punta Mita. On the beach so it has a great atmosphere. My entree was very good, but not excellent. However, the seafood stew was probably the best cioppino that I've ever had. I shared it with others at the table and it was a favorite.

We ate here with our two young kids. This is a great restaurant for families because the kids can run around on the beach if they get antsy. That said, the restaurant is "protected" from people selling their items on the beach so it's not open access in that regard. We enjoyed the food and drinks. There is a DJ... More

Excellent shrimp tacos, drinks and service. It's also above the beach so you don't have to deal as much with the folks selling trinkets.

We have dinner and/or lunch as the Blue Shrimp every time we visit and it is quickly becoming our favorite - not quite there yet but almost. Great food, service, and atmosphere! Beach location with all outdoor seating right off of the beach is fantastic. This is our favorite lunch location and it never disappoints!

A bit noisy and pricey, but good food. Try for a beach view. 2 people us$90 with one drink. Should have realized the punta restaurants service upscale hotels so the prices reflect that.
