Description: Established in 2006, Tropical House Bistro and Bar is a cozy place on Sayulita's quiet north side. Located one block off the beach and three blocks north of the footbridge on Calle Manual Navarette, it's the place to be for great food and drinks and an inviting friendly atmosphere. Come by for breakfast or lunch and enjoy a full espresso bar, fresh made smoothies and free wireless internet. Join us in the evening for happy hour, a great dinner, and conversation into the wee hours. We are the perfect place for private parties for up to 60 people and for Sunday brunch. Our hours are 8:00am to 1:30pm every day and 6:00pm to 10:00pm Monday through Saturday. Our bar is open later when the patrons want to stay! Visit us on our Facebook page for more information about the place we call home. Please stop by to say hello. We are looking forward to serving you! Cheers, Michel and Lisa

“Excellent Every Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This is a must visit every time we go to Sayulita. They have a great assortment of sauces you can apply to your grilled meat option. I personally love the gorgonzola cream sauce with the grilled flank steak, amazing! We love their breakfast as well. Great smoothies. Friendly owner and staff!

“Great Ambience, Gritty Caesar's Salad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

My husband and friends ate here 11 days into our two week Mexico stay. I was ready to eat some simple food--bruschetta for an app and a Caesar's salad for the entree. I was disappointed with both. On the other hand, my friend had pesto mahi mahi and practically licked his plate. He wants to go tonight, our last night in Sayulita but he was voted down.

The menu is basically a fish, meat, or chicken entree with your choice of sauces: a list of about twelve. Spaghetti was considered a poor choice of a pasta with everyone deciding that penne pasta would be much better to effectively enjoy the sauces--more surface area.

sautéed vegetable strips were enjoyed by all...even my husband who doesn't usually eat vegetables!
I might be willing to try again next year.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012 via mobile

Great place to sit outside and enjoy a cup of coffee and check emails. Omelet was great and the service was very friendly. Visited on the weekend of 3/9/12 and would definitely go back!

“Better Smoothies than Rollie's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

We came here for breakfast a couple of times and thought it was great and the location was perfect for us. Rollie's claims to have the best smoothies in town, but Tropical House has them beat by a long shot! The Asia Spa is the best! The waiter we had seemed a little preoccupied with staring off into space, but he was nice enough. The female servers are super friendly and nice.

Great drink specials. Solid food choices and a great atmosphere. Not terribly expensive outside of happy hour.
