Very personalised service and excellent variety of lovely food in a spacious restaurant on the beach a few paces away from the hustle of the village. We enjoyed the MahiMahi and decided to come again the next day for dessert. Delicious banana flambé with ice cream! Romantic atmosphere with torches burning on boundary. Reasonable prices.

We went to Sayulita for the day and walked along the beach and we were approached by Ernesto (a server at Capitan Cook) and we were invited to sit under their umbrellas. All you have to do is order drinks and food. Everything was great! The service, the food and the drinks. The only thing I find a little bothersome after a while are the vendors on the beach. But of course, being in Mexico, once they see you buy something, they all seem to swarm around you. And it was really neat watching the surfers :)

Went for dinner to this place as suggested by many reviewers in TA. What a dissapointment! Service was awful (I´m mexican so this happens frequently in tourist places), however the food was worse than the service. Maybe this wasn´t a good night but I will not go back to this place, there are many good options in Sayulita.

Estimada Amiga siento la decepción que al parecer te has llevado.
Al estar en el Restaurant Capitán Cook, mencionastes a alguien del personal de que no era de tu agrado ni la comida ni el servicio, y que te dijeron al respecto? Recuerdas quien fue quien te atendió tan mal?
Cual de nuestras comidas comistes y no te gusto?
Te agradecería que me des un poco mas de detalles para poder remediar las situación.
En Capitan Cook si nos importan las opiniones de nuestros Clientes!

We enjoyed the Red Snapper, and a Fajita dish, drinks were reasonable in price. If you want to sit on the beach under an umbrella, this is a good spot to do so. They make a good effort to keep up the quick service out to this sitting space, and they don't charge for chairs/umbrellas as long as you are ordering something.

We were very happy with our food, drinks and service here. The mojitos where superior and properly made. The ceviche was unbelievable...we were so happy with it. We are back home in cold Canada now 2 weeks and I am still thinking of that ceviche. We also had a variety of main course dinner meals at our table of 6 and everyone was very happy whether it was fish, shrimp, or surf n'turf that both my husband and I got. Would definately go back. Beautiful location also.
