“DO YOURSELF A FAVOR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Found this place 12 years ago when it first opened an have been back 30 times. Family run business that serves the authenic Mexican tacos anywhere.
It is about a half mile down the new road from Punta Mita going towards Litbu, sits on the right side of the road slightly elevated. Simple setting under a palapa but the flavors in their food and the quality of the meats surpasses the high dollar Mexican restaurants in Punta Mita.
The restaurants food and ambiance will allow you feel as if you are in a country in rural Mexico. I recommend lunch, my favorite is the Carne Asada Tacos, they are the best I have had anywhere. The price for the meals are so low we always leave double what they ask.
El Oasis is only ten minutes from the Four Seasons and worth the cab ride.
12 years ago when we first visited I inquried how they obtained the property and was told she traded her mother another property she had for this one. I then asked how long her mother owned it, 6 years Iwas told and then asked if she knew what her mom paid for it? 12 goats and it was a done deal 18 years ago, don't you just love it!

“Authentic Mexican at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

LOVED LOVED this restaurant on the side of the road. Everyone told us to eat there, nobody could remember it's name. Left out of hotel, left at first street - go up for 5 minutes and it's on your right. Look for the tablecloths.

Great great meal, authentic Mexican, one cook, great chips/guac/ everything was delicious.

“Autentic food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

One of the best in the area in my personal opinion.
Mangle is a very special wood. Coocking all the menu with this!!!
Just to beggin,,the order of bean tacos and molcajete salsa while you wait for your meal is crazy good.
Carne asada con chorizo i think is one of the best on the manu,,but Chicken pechuga and other dishes are great.
Like i said before,,all is cook with wood,,smoky flavor..mm,, delicious.
Try this place.
