This taco spot is not to be missed. The staff is warm, welcoming and energetic. The food is super fresh with everything prepared right in front of your eyes. Ask for the Agua Fresca and do not miss the taco de pulpo.

This was the most interesting and wonderful food we had while in Sayulita. Our waiter explained all the food in great fun detail and was fun all night. Try the papas with any kind of meat - you won’t need breakfast next morning!

My partner and I ate at El Itacate on a few occasions whilst in Sayulita. Each time it was consistently awesome. Their beef tacos and cheese burrito (the Itacate - literally your choice of meat wrapped in cooked cheese) are so delicious. The service is...More

What a unique food item the Itacate is! A melted cheese tortilla, wrapped around your choice of filling with an array of delicious salsas. I wish this was everywhere!
