A couple who spend the winter in Sayulita every year told us about this place. What a find! Even tho it is on the highway next to the bus stop; the interior is very nice. Staff attentive. Had the Molcahette; a searing hot stone bowl filled with everything imaginable; chicken, steak, shrimp, cactus, onions all "swimming" in a beautiful green... More

Our family travels to Sayulita often and we always have one dinner at Don Juan's because the food is so authentic and so delicious. This is a relaxed dining atmosphere outside of 'downtown' Sayulita. Portions are always large and beautifully presented. Great margueritas.

We have eaten here on the last two visits and have enjoyed both meals. Substantial menu if you are looking for variety. Reasonable prices. Good for children/families.

Don Juan's is a 5 minute walk south of Saylita's plaza situated next to the temporary bus station on the Punta de Mita road. Meeting my partner at the bus we decided to dine at Don Juan's as numerous "expats" and locals had recommend it. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The server was... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. Sayulita Centro is very crowded and busy in the holiday season. We walked a short distance to Don Juan's and it was worth it. The service was excellent, the food was great and the price was right. Loved it. Highly recommend no matter what the season! PS Very clean!!

Off the beaten path, you would never expect to find a place as good as Don Juan's. You could so easily miss this place if you weren't paying attention and if you wet paying attention you my pass it thinking it couldn't be good. But, it is good, it's very good and it's really nice inside. Don Juan's is a... More
