Description: We take pride in feeding both body and soul since the year 2000. Charming family ambiance with a splendid view of the marina, surrounded by art. 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.

“Always fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We always go here for breakfast when staying the the Grand Mayan. The food is fresh and made to order, the owners are very gracious, their staff is incredible and the setting picture perfect. What more could you ask for?

“Estudio Cafe on the marina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

We had breakfast there, and what a deal!!! Huge french toast along with a large bowl of fruit (included in price). Very reasonable--I had the "green juice" which they made from scratch, blending the parsley, pineapple, spinach, cactus and celery. Will go back for breakfast again next time.

“THIS IS THE BEST PLACE EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

The food is excellent. The staff is their to make your meal enjoyable. The owners are amazing and the view awesome. This is the number 1 place in Nuevo Vallarta. I believe Eddie's place is good but not that great. I also think his new place that Trip Advisor has ranked number one has not been in business long enough to earn the title. ESTUDIO CAFE is perfect. Affordable and wonderful!

“Worth it everytime!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

My husband and I walked upon this place several years ago,and have been enjoying it ever since. Everything cooked to order..so be prepared for a leisurely meal and view of the marina! Check before going,depending on season the hours open..
