“our favorite night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2010

We honeymooned in Sayulita and visited Cafe del Mar based on a recommendation from another traveler, and we are so glad we did. Everything was fabulous. We started off with incredibly unique and refreshing cocktails (so tasty) and our meals were delicious. I ordered the savory crepes, which were perfectly spicy and filled with creamy goodness. They were so good that I can't remember what my husband ordered, but it must have been good because I barely got one bite, he gobbled it up so quickly! We live in Seattle and are spoiled with incredible restaurants (and therefore tend to be a bit snobby with food) so we were delighted to find such fresh, unique & incredible food at such a charming restaurant in Mexico. To top it all off, the service was perfect. The staff was so friendly & professional. We will most definitely return to this restaurants when we visit with friends in the future!

“Delightful & unexpected in an unspoiled, seaside Mexican village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2009

We had a lovely table for two "at the rail" in this open-air restaurant overlooking the unspoiled, seaside village of San Pancho. The food was among the best we have had in Mexico. Generous portions, moderate prices, and decent wine. The menu was surprisingly varied with unusual preparations and seasonings. Service was superb from Ashley, a young American girl almost out of place in this tiny restaurant; her recommendations were impeccable. We most liked the food and only disliked the difficulty with street parking (we were driving - not a big deal).

“Romantic and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2008

This is the sweetest little restaurant in San Pancho. It cascades down the back side of a hill on little terraces under flowering plants. The owner is Belgian from Mexico City (and also owns the glamorous Mar Plata) and pays special attention to the menu and desserts. The menu is lite, no red meat, but great fish/shrimp/chicken dishes and an Asian touch. Great music softly playing in the background...very romantic all around and very delicous.
