Meeting point for artists, writers and thinkers. AAA rated 2 diamonds. Look us up in the Mexico Tour Book. Home cooked family recipes. Strictly fresh, natural ingredients, preferably organic, cooked in traditional, no-nonsense ways. We adhere to the "slow food" movement for proper cooking and enjoying. During high season (October through April), we serve breakfast , lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday. Friday, Saturday and Sunday we serve breakfast and lunch only. In low season (May to July) dinner is not served. We close August and September.

“Worth waiting five years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012 via mobile

It has been five years and we remember this little restaurant for the great ambiance, friendly service and great. It was so worth coming back, even better than we remembered! A must stop when you are in the area.

“Still good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Back again this year. While I still enjoy this little out of the way restaurant, I have to say that the prices have gone up and it isn't an inexpensive place to eat anymore. I had the Monday evening special of Mahi Mahi which was around $24-or more. It was just okay. The fish tasted greasy. The soup was served with my familys' meals and my meal came a while later. We will continue to eat there when we go to Nuevo Vallarta, but it is not my favorite place anymore. Still love the marina view.

“Beautiful location, simple charm, quality cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

We absolutely love to frequent Estudio Cafe when we are in Nuevo Vallarta! It is a lovely setting, right on the Marina ~ peaceful and artistic. The menu is not huge, but the selections are well thought-out, and they use only the best quality ingredients. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and each time of day holds it's own charm. Federico and Luli live in the house/restaurant/art studio, which adds to it's quaintness. Federico is an amazing artist, and you can wander through his studio, enjoying his work, before or after you dine. Luli loves to cook, and serve her guests delicious, healthful dishes made of the freshest ingredients. Everyone that we have taken there has enjoyed it immensely!
