This is rare to say for any restaurant but in our group of 20 people every person was extremely happy with their food. My steak was fantastic and my wife's chicken baguette was also exceptional. All around our table all you could hear was how good everyone's food was. What a pleasant surprise! Even the chicken fingers for the kids... More

I emailed restaurant ahead, as we were just going to be landing on New Year's Eve and I wanted to be sure and have a spot for dinner reserved since there were 6 of us in our party.

We came for lunch and boy oh boy, was the service a disgrace. Our food took 45 mins. When the shop was empty. The steak was undercooked. They brought chicken fingers instead of fish and they weren't very friendly. Rather find another place. This place is only good for its high speed free wifi.

What a great surprise - a small, local restaurant with the most amazing and fresh food. Loved the guacamole, quesadillas and ceviche.

Fresh dishes and excellent service. Ate here on my last night in Sayulita. I highly recommend for a nice dinner with friends. The mojitios are awesome with fresh mint and the coconut shrimp skewers were the best I've ever eaten.

We ate here numerous times for breakfast, and once for lunch. My boys fed the iguanas that live in the trees above the restaurant. Great staff, solid food, excellent coffee, and prime location.

We had dinner here twice during our week in Sayulita. Service is excellent. Atmosphere very relaxing. It was our "ahhhh" spot. Good variety on the menu. Nice wine options. Prices reasonable. We loved it.
