Beautiful view of the bay and nice staff. Overpriced and mediocre at best food. The Blue Shrimp, the sushi place next door and the rib place next to that are all owned by the same person and I think the kitchen cooks for all of them.

We could not have asked for a better meal! The atmosphere was serene and the decor the perfect backdrop for the evening. The wait staff was very attentive and personable, and the food was amazing! Our party had coconut shrimp, fish tacos, Sea Bass, Seared Tuna, and Fettuccine. Everyone was extremely satisfied with their choices.! We finished it off sharing... More

Stumbled upon this place on first night in Punta Mita. Liked the vibe so stuck it out at bar for a while in hopes of getting a table. Staff at bar was great and rest of staff was good on keeping us informed on getting a table. Eventually got table and it was worth the wait. Had party of 5,... More

We celebrated my son's 22nd birthday there on Christmas Eve and they made it an incredible night to remember! Our table was ocean side with a lovely view of the sunset. We enjoyed a unique and delicious maple calamari appetizer, which I highly recommend. Our Kobe burger, coconut shirmp and garlic shrimp were all very good. As a surprise the... More

Our vacation was enhanced by being able to watch our favorite NFL teams in their playoff hunt. The Blue Shrimp was a touchdown! The maple octopus was a stretch for me, but I followed the waiter's recommendation and was not disappointed. It was delicious! Great comfortable yet upscale spot at the beach for food and drinks. Very friendly and professional... More

the octopus and shrimp are great at this restaurant on the beach in Punta de mita. try the shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon, or shrimp scampi. both were delicious. the octopus with maple glaze was an amazing appetizer. The drinks are a jaw dropping presentation of the slurpee ice in the glass, then the liquor very generously... More

We ate here per the suggestion of oor butler at the St. Regis. Food was awesome, view was awesome, service was awesome. We at at two other places during our stay and decided Blue Shrimp will be the first place we eat when we go to Punta Mita next year. Great job!

I used to love the blue shrimp but as often happens good reviews mean more customers and many restaurants are not ready for this. It makes me sad as the locale is great and the food is good. I live in Punta Mita and now I can go by myself and sit at the bar and they will basically ignore... More
