Medusa's used to be located in the open air lot about a block down from where it currently resides. On our last trip to Sayulita it was a great place to sit outside, grab a meal or a drink and enjoy the afternoon. Now it's in a more permanent structure and, on a hot afternoon, does not offer the same ambiance or relaxing vibe it once did.

Margaritas are decent. Totally recommend stopping by for a drink. Service is outstanding. The owners do whatever they can to accommodate. Guacamole appetizer is just okay. Not the best in town.

Though we did not order a main dish (as we were just looking for a place to relax on a hot evening) menu looked pretty good.

We were disappointed that Medusa's had changed so much and was not as relaxing a spot as it once was. Instead of palm trees, Now, your view is of a house with some dogs leashed to a tree and laundry hanging outside.

There were four of us dining and we all enjoyed our meals and drinks. The chilled mouse we had for desert was equally enjoyable. The indoor seating is open air and allows for great people watching.

Dropped by for dinner here as it was across the street from our lodging. Margarita came out so bad I sent it back twice. It was as bad as I make margaritas. Steak came out over done and without flavor. Gave up on it and left it. Shrimp were not fresh.

Medusa was really close to where we were staying, so that was a plus. The food was really terrific, but I think the capacity is a bit limited. We were a group of 9, with 3 kids. If we were all adults, it would have been a bit better, but the kids got antsy after most of us got our food, but some had to wait for a bit. So, if you're not in a hurry, I definitely recommend the fresh, delicious food.

Last night's dinner was the best food I've had in my several trips to Mexico. Recommended by friends who come here every year, Medusa prepared everything -- tuna steaks, coconut shrimp, rice, vegetables -- perfectly. I can also attest to the quality of the margaritas, which are two for one from 4:00-6:00.
