“Order the Cannelini!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

My husband and I were lucky to have dinner at Carolina twice during our Punta Mita stay. Carolina by far has the best service and wine list available in Punta Mita. We both loved and highly recommend the cannellini appetizer with lobster and black truffles (so decadent!!!). We also loved the king crab risotto, filet, and flaming Mexican coffee. Overall it was an unforgettable dining experience!

“Dinner with wine pairing ”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at Carolina. It came with a wine pairing that was a treat. The excellent sommelier, Alberto, produced an amazing Mexican Chardonnay that tasted exactly like a white Burgundy, plus truly great Argentinian and Australian reds. The meal was incredible, and entailed almost as many amuse bouche surprises as there were courses. If you're in PV, Punta Mita or Sayulita, Carolina is def worth going to!

“Excellent service and food pretty good but could be better”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We loved the restaurant and would return again the bar is really nice and the staff there are great. Cocktails were invented here and we tried them...the restaurant is nicely done very comfortable as with most places in a Mexico the people looking after us were really great. Wine choice is a bit limited but good quality the food varied from excellent tuna tartare to heavy risotto too much butter and an over cooked mahi mahi. Will try again though as the overall experience was good
