“Good location and very affordable-decent food-Great Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Local place close to where we are staying in Sayulita, the service is very good and friendly and the food was fine, no complaints at all but seemed like they had maybe just reopened after being closed for the slow season or something? Hard to say, but I still give it a great review, it just seemed like a new place just getting set up and trying really hard. We are here for 3 weeks so we will give it a try again in a week or so, but great location & the prices very affordable for a nice dinner.

“Montezuma's Revenge”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

I ate here last March. Bad idea. We just went for drinks and an appetizer. We had the ceviche. Needless to say we were all sick as dogs for several days after. Mucho diarrhea. I had to cancel the rest of my trip around Mexico and fly home. I suppose I deserve some of the blame, because something didn't look right with the ceviche, but ate it anyway.

“Not like it once was...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

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.

“Good Food, Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

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.

“Flashy without substance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

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.
