The tacos were great but the best part was the seafood shooters! They are a mixture of clamato, worcestershire, and spices in a shot glass filled with seafood. We ordered 2 of them every morning, ate the seafood and then poured a shot of vodka in to make the most amazing breakfast ceasar!

Over my many visits to Sayulita, El Break is always on my list of places to eat. It's definitely the best restaurant along the beach and their menu is the best. They've got wicked ceviche, smoothies and seafood cocktails along with tonnes of other options. The atmosphere is awesome in the evening time as they always have a local DJ... More

El Break Cafe is a very chilled bar by the beach and perfect for a cold beverage or light lunch. The staff is friendly, but service can be a little slow although that's not a problem when you are chilling out...

First of all the employees are told to charge 200 pesos just for the chairs rental. The beach is really dirty, bad kept. Secondly food is not that good, most clients are gringos expecting to drink margaritas and eat nachos. And there was this fat bringa with really nasty attitude and two very bad behaved children, and the fatty got... More

OK food. Right on the beach. Great views while you wait and wait and wait for your food. Not bad and not great. I've had the breakfast burrito and the shrimp burrito. I have a lot of other food adventures to go on before I come back to this place on purpose.

We visited El Break on Thursday, September 1st. We quickly began chatting with owner, Octavia, which we really enjoyed. The service and atmosphere were excellent and we would have stayed longer if we could have. Great location and we would highly recommend checking out El Break if you're in Sayulita!
