One of the best restaurants in Punta de Mita

We ate here twice during our stay last week, both for dinner. The atmosphere and food here are excellent but it was really the service that knocked our socks off. If you have the pleasure of being served by Chris (I hope I've remembered his name correctly!), you will have an amazing... read more

The guacamole made freshly at our table was a course in cuisine - I can duplicate after his instructions. The cerviche was divine, and they kept bringing little treats to augment our dinner. Had a beautiful dinner, dreamy view, and a special evening.

We were attracted to Blue Shrimp as they had really comfy beach chairs! I know, not the traditional way to choose a restaurant. However, the service and food were really good. And there is a bit of theatre if you order guacamole as they make it at the table. We had prawns and fish of the day - both lovely.

Next we were served a delicious, complementary shrimp salad. We ordered guacamole which was also prepared table side and served with homemade chips. They were so good!! For our main... More

Had the catch of the day, red snapper, and watched the surfers and paddle boarders...wonderful food, good views, good sunset and a knowledgeable wait staff. Try the mole, was not a fan until I tried it here. Well worth coming here.
