Been going to 4 different locations of El Coleguita for several years. The location in La Cruz moved 10 min up road 200 to Sayulita.. Consistent good food. Always a part atmosphere.. Go to Sayulita and see Javier

If you love coconut shrimps, this is the place to go. Everything you order is done fairly quickly with not much waiting time. Of course there's a bottle of free Tequila on each tables. They also offer free desert consisting of fried banana with a cream sauce and a shot of coffee liqueur on ice. A delight to experience.

A bottle of tequila on the table, chips, salsa, seafood soup, fried banana and kalhua and cream come with your oversized seafood delight! You can spend the afternoon there with the Bay in the background. Always friendly accommodating staff but get there early as they close around 8...

Bring your appetite and thirst to this Seafood Haven. Best value is the Lobster, Fish filet "Mignon" in a ring of shrimp and a skewer with more prawns... The bottle of tequila is on the table for you to have at no cost... Just don't drink and drive! Enjoy and Buen Provecho!

As reviewed elsewhere, the La Cruz location closed some time ago in 2014 and have the newer one en route to PV near Starbucks and in the PV Marina. We have been to the newer one several times, as recently as November. The mosquitoes were terrible and took away the pleasure somewhat. The quality, view and atmosphere didn't make up... More

Very sad to say that the owner has chosen to close this location. There are still teo others close to PV but the food is not as good and the prices have increased. Disappointed.

The staff was friendly, prices are good, and food was great!! This will be a restaurant we will return to, had a great time. There is a hotel next to the restaurent with ocean views for about $40.00 a night, the rooms are nice.

The quality of the seafood is VERY GOOD. i dined at El Coliguita a few times during my winter stay in Bucerias and was thoroughly pleased each time. Granted the FREE tequila is rough but the Margaritas were very good. The fish platter is their signature dish and the mixed seafood platter will satisfy completely. My friend who ordered the...

Not a favorite. You can't make up for the shortcomings in the quality of the food by trying to cover it up with cheap tequila.
