If your stating at the Iberostar just ten minutes up the road is this gem, a must try for a taste of real mexico, basic but tasty food with simple service. The Carne Asada was a fav but the ceviche was also high quality at local prices. We asked for a tequila to end our meal, the owner recommended the... More

Love this restaurant. Comfortable and attractive in an area with many trees. The carne asada is to die for! Other entrees are also 1st class, fresh and tasty. I had the fish quesadillas which were excellent and had sides of fresh cooked potatoes - fry-style, rice and a salad of tomatoes and lettuce. Very impressed with the quality of foods... More

Come and experience delicious local food. Personally taken care by it's owner, Jorge o "El Guero" they have a day special and they always treat you with a delicious quesadilla while you wait for your food. When coming here you should definitely have their ' Molcajete sauce ' which is freshly made and deliciously hot. My personal favorite is also... More

Ok, first lets get the location out of the way. Google maps has the actual GPS coordinates as 20°46'59.5"N 105°29'43.7"W or 20.783196, -105.495475, which is a short drive north of Punta de Mita on the road to Sayulita. As noted, this cooking house has dirt floors and a thatched roof, however, the bathroom, staff and kitchen area was very clean.... More

First and foremost...I am Mexican & I love salsa more than anything...I've traveled up,down and around Mexico and El oasis salsa de molcajete (traditional volcanic rock pestle & mortar) rates as one of my top 3 salsas in Mexico!!!! The restaurant itself is as traditional as it gets. Palapa roof (thatched palm roof) sand floor, a hammock to rest on... More

This is an outdoor restaurant with a dirt floor and thatched roof. The food was excellent. It was the best food we had in Mexico. The owner was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The only downside is that it is at the side of the highway so there is traffic noise.

We ate there today once again. The food was really excellent. I had coconut shrimp and my wife had El Oasis fish. My coconut shrimp was superior to the same dish I ate last week at La Laguna In Nuevo Vallarta (and the La Laguna food was very good)! The fish dinner was of pompano fish prepared very well indeed...

Found this place 12 years ago when it first opened an have been back 30 times. Family run business that serves the authenic Mexican tacos anywhere. It is about a half mile down the new road from Punta Mita going towards Litbu, sits on the right side of the road slightly elevated. Simple setting under a palapa but the flavors... More

LOVED LOVED this restaurant on the side of the road. Everyone told us to eat there, nobody could remember it's name. Left out of hotel, left at first street - go up for 5 minutes and it's on your right. Look for the tablecloths. Great great meal, authentic Mexican, one cook, great chips/guac/ everything was delicious.
