My review title says it all. The Pulpo al anjillo is incredible. Totally recommend. Wine was also 2-for-1 the night we arrived, and very tasty! Overall, a great restaurant and everything was delicious.

We visited Original Anclote immediately after driving into Punta de Mita to grab some food and drinks. Both were delicious! Our table was at the back of the restaurant and right by the beach, so we had an unobstructed view of the water. There are many local merchants who will come over to you after you sit down and try...

We really enjoyed our experience at Original Anclote both times we visited during our week in Punta de Mita. The staff took wonderful care of us, and both our kids and my wife and I thought the food was very good. It's definitely not the swankiest place on the beach, but the prices are also a bit more competitive, and... More

Excellent food and service. Prices are at the lower end for the area but food is the best we ate. You sit right at the beach so the view is also amazing.

Love sitting at a beach front table, munching on cheese and bean nachos, watching novice SUP (stand up paddlers) try the waves! Service is wonderful here and very friendly. Thanks for taking such good care of me and my visitors!

Very courteous and listened and understood when I informed the waiter of my allergies to shellfish and requested my food to be prepared separately from any shellfish prep. While waiting for our meal to be prepared(I didn't order anything deep fried as sometimes the same oil is used in any restaurant). I observed staff wiping down, disinfecting tables etc. Table...

What an offering for Valentines Day! The set menu (380 pesos) had 2 choices each for app, entrée, and dessert. We both chose the same app - a wonderful calamari with sweet potato puree, deep fried avocado slices, and wasabi cream, for our entrees we both had the ahi tuna. One steak was encrusted in white sesame seeds, and a... More

My brother and I met at Original Anclote twice while I was in Mexico. He rode up on the bus from Puerto Vallarta and I met him as I was at a resort in the area. The restaurant is nice and right on the beach. They let us sit out on the beach all day and we ate lunch there.... More

Wonderful food and great view- sit with your toes in the sand and enjoy. Breakfast was delightful. Watch the paddle boarders. Buy souvenirs from the beach vendors.

We had breakfast at the Original Anclote Restaurant and not only did we have a wonderful view it was topped off by fantastic food. It really is a perfect place to take visitors. The food was delicious, the atmosphere under the palapa was very Mexican, the service was outstanding and the restaurant itself is clean and well cared for. Something... More
