Yelapa is a small coastal fishing village one hour away from Puerto Vallarta (by boat). No roads, electric is recent but who'd have expected to find such a jewel of a restaurant there! Susan, the owner and chef is a petite dynamo who has studied in NYC and Paris and boy, does it show! We were there (again) yesterday for "Thai Tuesday" and it was FABULOUS. As refined as the best NYC Thai place. The decor is charming, a la francaise, small checkered tablecloths, all seating is outdoors in front of the sea. I don't normally write reviews but this place is SPECIAL. Prices are reasonable by American standards. Dinner (entree, main dish, dessert plus margarita) will be about $25... and worth every dime!

We have been coming to Yelapa for a couple years now and Cafe Bahia is definitely one of our regular stops for breakfast, lunch or late afternoon snacks. The owner is a French trained chef who owns a catering business in Cape Cod and winters in Yelapa where she runs Cafe Bahia. She and her staff offer remarkable service and are lovely advocates for the town. Feel free to ask them anything you need to know about water taxis, where to stay, or what there is to do in town. Cafe Bahia makes the best eggs Benny we've ever had and they have a signature taco salad and medialuna salad that we always order. All the ingredients are local and fresh, as the restaurant gets first pick of the day's produce when it comes in on the boat from PV. They also bake delicious bread, macaroons and brownies that are the perfect treat for your water taxi ride back to PV. Cafe Bahia is aces! Aces!

Friendly staff, fresh, carefully prepared food using quality ingredients. Loved the spritzers, black bean soup and the Yelapa salad!

My wife and I enjoyed breakfast here while waiting on our fishing adventure with miramaryelapa.com/okley.php to start! Breakfast was great with the best fresh squeezed orange juice. Enjoyed the fact that it was on the beach and right by the village peer where most of the local ocean bearing activity took place.

Didnt like the fact that it was not owned by a native local and it was more expensive than what I expected for the given area.

They are at the top of the town pier and are a great place to sit and get your bearings. I arrived with no clue where my place was so they called them for me and I had a great meal while I waited to be picked up. Friendly and knowledgeable.
