“Fine dining Mexican style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2010

Food was exotic, just off the charts. Service was unbelievable. Just the best hands down. Ate there 3 times. Setting, right on the beach. What more can you say. It was the kind of food you'd pay $200 for in SF or NYC but you pay $40 in Mex.

“Great food, relaxed atmosphere, warm service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2010

We ate there for dinner on May 29, 2010 and returned for dessert the next evening. The host gives everyone a warm welcome. From the homemade guacamole to the chocolate cake, the food was superb. Standouts on the menu were large local shrimp from up the coast in San Blas, grilled with Mexican herbs and spices, and the hot chicken and shrimp served bubbling in a small molcajete pot made of volcanic stone. Restaurant is quite small, with a few tables located right on the narrow local beach. We ate at other local restaurants (including an overly fussy and disappointing dinner at nearby Cafe des Artistes de Mar, which does have a lovely, large seaside terrace). The food and friendly, personal service at Rosa Mexicano made it by far the best local choice for dinner. It is clear that the owners are on site, care about quality and customer sarisfaction, and are paying attention. Definitely recommended.

“had the best food at a reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2010

My friend and I went there May 6, 2010.. from the freshly made guacamole made at your table to the impeccable service and the calm relaxing atmosphere.. this was one of the highlights of our trip!

we had a relaxing time watching the birds dive into the ocean for fish.. watching the fishermen throw out nets to catch fish.. watching the boats float by..

“Delicious, fresh mexican with friendly local service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2010

We dined at Rosa Mexicana on the first night of our trip. The highlight of the Mexican menu is the is the emphasis on delicious fresh seafood. Friendly, attentive service and the gorgeous waterfront location (without the hassle of beach vendors!) make this spot hard to beat!

“Best Meal You'll Have on Vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2010

Don't let the front of this restaurant fool you ... beyond the small opening is a beach front setting with food and service beyond compare. I'm not sure why the previous reviewer had such a poor experience ... we had four different people, including the owner, taking care of us.
The food is fresh and absolutely delicious. I was traveling with three girlfriends. We all ordered different appetizers and entrees ... everything was wonderful. This place a must-stop if you're anywhere near Punta Mita. Enjoy!
