“Lovely ambience, tasty food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Deceiving from the outside, the interior is really pretty- you feel like you are eating in a garden. Nice lighting, fresh flowers, and cloth tablecloths ( a real plus in this area....).
I thought the food was good; I had the fish tacos on a recommendation from some other diners who were just leaving. I eat LOTS of fish tacos in Mexico, one of my favorite things to order, so that said- these were pretty good. Served with mango salsa, which is not my choice of salsas for fish.
I will say the sevice was not good- and it was not really busy. I would like to give them another try, because every place has an "off" night here and there.

“Sayulita Upscale!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

I took a day trip with my 78 year old mother to Sayulita last month. I was a little worried once I got there that it was a little too surf town for her. She ended up loving the town so that was the good news. That said while I love small taquerias - she really wasn't up to eating at a counter in the sun and sand. Don Juans was perfect! The Dining room was comfortable, the service was attentive and the food was awesome. (do try the raw tuna appetizer) I use the term upscale "loosely" because Sayulita is a super casual beach town, fancy it is not. But Don Juan is very nice if you are looking for something a little different than the many cool but strip down dining options the town has to offer. And don't worry about missing out on the charm that is Sayulita - Don Juan's dining room faces the beach so you still have a good view of everything.

“Looks better inside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

This looks like a little shack on the side of the road but the interior is very nice and comfortable. AND, the best part - the food was delicious! The coconut shrimp are the best I've had anywhere in Mexico or the US. Very reasonably priced too.
