Do not mistake this restaurant for the one in Nuevo Vallarta. Apparently, different owners. This place has a nice setting on the water. And the service is excellent, as we have come to expect in this part of Mexico. But I felt totally disappointed, not just for the quality of the food, but also the prices. I ordered the coconut...

We drove out from Guayabitos to check out Punta de Mita. Great highway to get to the point. We parked and went exploring to find a place to eat lunch. We choose The Blue Shrimp because of the Oceanside ambiance. The 4 of us were seated at the end table with a fabulous view of the surfers on the beach.... More

This place is awesome! You have to go. Get the tableside guacamole for sure. This place is great for large groups and kids. Every time we have been with kids they've taken extra time to make sure the kids get food quickly and even put them at their own table. I've never had a bad experience! The chef will normally...

We had dinner at the Blue Shrimp while in Punta Mita. The dining room is lovely and we had a very nice meal in front of the ocean. Our meals were fresh and delicious and the service was excellent.

This restaurant is a fabulous choice when eating outside the gates of Punta Mita. The decor, food, waiters and view are super! We have eaten three times here and every meal was delicious. Along with drinks. My kids enjoy playing by the ocean and on the rocks while we sit and enjoy the sunset! Definitely a great choice for the... More

First of all Blue Shrimp is a nice typical beach front Mexican restaurant, thatched roof, candle light and charming waiters; plus an agreeable view of the ocean less than 15 meters from where you sit. The food is good, fresh and well prepared, but almost priced as if in America, as is the wine list. Way overpriced for named French... More

Excellent meal with kids at The Blue Shrimp. Ambience is great - close to water and nice lighting. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Red Snapper was excellent. Other reviews complained about the price, but I thought it was very reasonable considering the type of restaurant and quality of food. Less than $120 USD for all four of us... More

Well every time we go for dinner and drinks it is a must to order the shrimp. We like to hang out in the Real Madrid VIP room.
