Great Shrimp and Fun Atmosphere

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... read 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.

We had a delicious dinner at this restaurant while visiting Punta Mita. Food was top notch, service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. I would happily go back there.

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset with our dinner. The coconut shrimp was the best I've ever had. They asked if I wanted the jumbo shrimp, I declined...the shrimp that I was served were so large I can't imagine what the jumbo shrimp would look like. The bacon wrapped shrimp was also delectable. The ceviche appetizer was among the best.

I loved the shrimp. Everything here was delicious. This is the same owner as Si Signor. No disappointment here!

Horrible service at bar. Not served (even though we asked three times). Didn't try food but won't go back because we were treated so rudely.

Wonderful table side guacamole that is as good as it gets. Great shrimp as the name would imply, but be careful with the margaritas. They keep pouring and pouring and pouring the tequila. Great but dangerous. Enjoy with caution!

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 Italian hawkers are far more aggressive.....but enough about that. Was surprised... 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
