This was our second trip to Punta de Mita and returning to Ropi's was like visiting an old friend. What a warm & generous man! Food & beverages were delightful! Breakfast was scupcious and fresh. Ropi prides himself in taking care of you whatever your needs may be. The atmosphere is relaxing and we are always inspired by Ropi's artwork and creativity. Thanks for making our trip a wonderful memory!

Ropi the owner is an artist in food and architecture. The gardens and rooms all have a tasteful appeal towards the aesthetic. The same can be said of the food. Best is the breakfast interesting sauces and tasteful presentation. Light and not over filling amount of food and priced very good. I always enjoyed this place, but if your in a hurry this is not your place at those times. Each meal is prepared and cooked individually. This means not a great deal is prep-ed ahead. So fresh wonderful flavor means a few more minutes but worth the wait. His enchiladas in poblano sauce is wonderful. Ash for some potatoes to go with it. You'll be happy you did.

Another thing is if the typical food in Mita is getting old have one of Ropi's delicious hamburgers.

Rented a condo across the street. How lucky am I?!! We arrived late one Saturday night in Punta de Mita. Tired and hungry ... and disappointed to find out we arrived outside of their business hours but Ropi welcomed us with open arms. The food was amazing! I didn't know what I wanted so the waitress (can't remember her name but she was Ropi's ex wife which is pretty cool. They are good friends) made me up a plate of various things.
We came back almost every day. Breakfast was usually eggs with Waffles and bacon but tried the scrambled eggs w/spinach & the special omelet.
It was all so good and made fresh :) One word of warning... if you're not a cat person this may not be the place for you! As they roam freely. Having the run of the place and sadly ruining the furniture as it's their personal scratching posts.
I loved wandering around the HUGE restaurant looking at all the details,.. the tiled bench, the hanging ornaments, the Catrinas, the books, the plants even the horse shoe. There is so much to see and so much work and love gone into it.
It's always awesome to find good food when you travel and even better when it's within walking distance but even more of a bonus when you get to know the owner and see the kind of person he is. Ropi is a kind, generous humanitarian who donates his skill and time feeding the homeless. Also taking the food we couldn't use before we left the condo and giving it to the less fortunate.

Had breakfast there, what a gem of a restaurant. The food is AMAZING, fresh, abundant and flavorful. The artwork of the owner throughout is equally awesome. But the coolest thing was watching his kittens hiding out in the planters on the patio, they were hysterical and entertaining! Going back this Saturday and we can't wait!
