Friendly staff. All the food was great - even the simple grilled shrimp with veggies. We also had green salads that were delicious and the mussels - YUM. The chile rellenos were really a show stopper though! What an incredible flavor, with the dates and warm spices -Had both the beef and the shrimp and they were spectacular.

I enjoyed a nice evening at Sayulita Cafe. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delish. The mojitos were refreshing and made with the right amount of alcohol. Great evening.

While we have not eaten here, we have stopped several times for their iced lattes ... Very stron, just to our liking and generous portion for reasonable cost ... Especially in the afternoon when sun is high ...

We grabbed dinner our first night here and went back three consecutive nights. The pineapple stuffed with seafood is nothing short of spectacular and incredibly cheap. We thought we had ordered the best thing on the menu until we ordered their coconut shrimp. Now, I have travelled a lot and consumed my share of coconut shrimp ...... Nowhere is it... More

We went here following a bag gastro intestinal bug my husband had 24 hours ago. He thought he'd be ready to eat again but once he saw the food, he decided he wanted to be conservative for one more day. I advocated leaving but he's a sweetheart and we stayed. They most impressive thing is the waiter did not balk... More

Just look for the romantic candle-lit tables and the line out front waiting for a place to sit. Located just once block before Sayulita's main plaza, the Sayulita Cafe restaurant offers locals and visitors an incredible and authentic dining experience. A full bar with a plentiful wine list is available. Make sure to try one of the famous margaritas while you wait to be seated.
