A nice Mexican restaurant on the beach at Punta Mita. Great service and good prices. Sit with your feet in the sand while watching the pelicans dive for food. Then after your beer bucket and appetisers order your meal and sit under the giant palapa. Ceviche tostadas, shrimp cocktails and o did I mention that a guy goes out an digs up oysters and delivers them to your table just shucked. For a main course have the whole red snapper with butter and garlic or the shrimp brochettes . Flan for desert.
Then back to your comfy chair for a siesta before they ask you if your are ready for a daiquiri or margarita. Good people.

Supurb food and view of the beach which is very rocky and not good for swimming even though the pictures we saw of the area show it with no rocks ....hard to find a beach in this area that has no rocks .....we could not eat in peace..we understand people need to peddle thier wears to make money but really ....every 2 -3 seconds, litterally, often up to 6 of them lining up at a time and the same people approached us up to 5 times each no matter how many times we said no and then no and then no in spanish every way we could ....we just wanted to eat our lunch and irritation after a while does little to the appetie. WE never thought of approaching the owner and threatening to leave our meal and not pay if he did not do something about this ..will do this next time .....there needs to be some respect as we would never eat here again because of the level of being accosted that it was ......

Wonderful waiters....ask for Felix. Very attentive.
I had fried calamari for dinner and it was marvelous.
This is a place I love to come during the day, sit on the beach, under a papala and order guacamole/chips and have a margarita. They do not scrimp on the margarita...one is to be nursed, order lunch, and they do not discourage you sitting for the entire day. Bring a book or watch the surfers.
There is an upstairs, outdoors room to watch the sunset and order dinner. Very nice.
They have a large screen tv in the dining room if you want to watch the big game of the day.
