“Fresh seafood, great service, beautiful views and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

My friends and I celebrated the last night of my bachelorette weekend here, and it could not have been a better choice! We shared seafood ceviche, grilled fish in garlic sauce, fajitas and more. All of the food was fresh and perfectly seasoned. The server also brought out three salsas - a tomato salsa, a habanero one, and a brown one that he warned us was "really spicy." As a spice lover, I took the challenge - def the spiciest hot sauce tried the whole weekend.

The setting was also a little fancier than the other places we tried in Punta Mita. We were there in the low season (late May) so were the only ones in the restaurant, but that didn't detract from the service or the ambiance, and never once did we feel rushed. I even asked if there were any HH specials (it was 8:30pm), and the server said sure, and gave us a BOGO offer on margaritas.

If you're looking for a nice place to enjoy views and food in Punta Mita, definitely go to Tinos!

“Great location, terrible food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

This is a great place on the beach in Punta de Mita and we were encouraged when we walked in. The atmosphere is great. However the food just isn't good. From the tacos to the shrimp everyone was disappointed. The service was OK but it was the first place where we had a bit of trouble with people speaking English. There are better choices I hope elsewhere in town.

“Excellent evening all around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

We are staying in Nuevo Vallarta and decided to rent a car and investigate local small cities. We stumbled upon a gem just outside of Nuevo-probably a 30 minute drive along a breathtaking road that takes you past beautiful beaches and jungle type areas....Punta de Mita. It is a very quaint, clean, lovely town right on the Pacific Ocean. We decided to eat at Tinos after we went in and checked out the view. We can't say enough about the wonderful time we had. The service we received form Salvador, the "captain" and Javier was exceptional. They helped us with the menu and described some of the specialties in a way that really helped us decide what to have. They were warm and welcoming, the view was outstanding, and the food was exceptional. We actually went back a second night during our one week stay! We will definately go back and will recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits Puerto Vallarta!

“Great Food, Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

It was not at all crowded the night we came, but do not be intimidated by that. If you have the place to yourself, enjoy it all the more.

All of the fish dishes we had were superb. Service friendly and attentive. Atmosphere completely casual. Views across Banderas Bay. Birds diving for their own dinners near sunset. Menu prices most reasonable.

Altogether most satisfying.

“By chance...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Our 5-star hotel concierge made a reservation at another restaurant in the little town of Punta de Mita. We soon walked out when they only wanted to seat us at the bar. We wandered into Mariscos Tinos & it was wonderful. We dined on the beach, excellent service, grilled shrimp the size of Texas & red snapper so delicious.... Excellent wait-staff-they couldn't do enough for us.
Found us a taxi to return to our hotel. Unassuming decor, nice live music. Definitely would return.
