“A place of interest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Interesting take on traditional Mexican dishes. Good service and moderate prices. Best is the fresh salsa they make at the table, The tomatillo, cillantro, rosasted tomato and serano chillis come alive. Worth a visit while your int Mita.

“Good food, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were staying in the Punta Mita resort area, where the food was extremely expensive and were quite happy to find Rosa Mexicano. Nacho hooked us up with some great table-side salsa, with fire-roasted tomatoes, onions and peppers. We ordered "Mexican tartare," which was like a poke (not a ceviche), quesadillas with huitlacoche and carnitas. It was all quite good, and the tortillas were house-made. The bill for the food, plus two cokes, was under $40, and the staff was great. Would definitely recommend.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

If you want an authentic Mexican experience, visit Rosa. My first night in Mexico, I dined here on a recommendation by the concierge. I couldn't have been happier - guac and salsa made right at the table. I ordered a mojito and they picked the mint from the yard! If you're looking for 5star accommodations, this is not the place but if you're looking for 5 star food and service ... visit Rosa!

“Great experience and hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Wonderful little restaurant right on the water. Fantastic service, great conversation and some pretty darn good food to boot. The Guacamole and fresh made salsa was fantastic. The main dishes were very good but could have used a little more seasoning. Margaritas were strong and tasty.

I will be going back again for sure.

“A wonderful meal with a fantastic staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

My friend and I went to Rosa Mexicano upon the recommendation of Rami (caretaker of Hotel, La Quinta del Sol). We had a table right next to the water, with a fantastuc view. We started out with Margaritas (Cucumber for one of us and Cadillac for the other. They were perfect. They were followed by a black bean and corn. soup. I had the Tequila Blue water shrimp that was done to perfecton. As the evening went on we finished off with Hibiscus margaritas that were very good. and carmel nut crepes with ice cream. Completely full, we wandered back to the hotel. What a wonderful meal and evening. Definately have a meal at Rosas when you stay In Punta De Mita.
