With many beach-front palapa restaurants, folks typically arrive and spend the day on the beach with a table in one of these beach spots. No rush through lunch when in a beach restaurant... not here in Punta Mita. Spend the entire day eating, drinking and people watching.
Cafe des Artistes The restaurant is, in itself, a celebration of the sea and its riches. Its location on the Anclote beach, the design of its interior areas, the magnificent terrace which contrasts with the variety of blue and green paint the ocean just a few feet from his table, the decorative elements that evoke the same movement waves, the iridescence of fish skin, help to create a casual, warm, friendly and fresh.

El Dorado A local favorite, has excellent food, especially seafood, very friendly waiters and very nice Palapa style decor. They have added a second story allowing you to get away from the vendors. Try their fish El Dorado style! Under the sky bridge on the north end of "restaurant row"
Tino's They specialize in sea food and their standards are very high. Ensalada de camarones (shrimp salad) or camarones rellenos (avocados with shrimp) are really good. They only have beer in the extra small coronita size, so you pay more. Middle of "restaurant row".
Margarita's Hector, from the family that owns El Dorado de Nayarit, has opened this as his own and the ambiance is wonderful. The food is excellent and includes a full range of seafood, but also such things as ribs, steak & chicken. Each dinner includes soup as a starter & I highly recommend the tortilla soup! .

Como No Como No is just a few steps up the street from the marina. It is a lovey little spot for dinner. This gem of a restaurant has great ambience as a result of very tasteful decor and a beautiful setting. Try their green chili burritos! And their cheeseburgers are primo! Prices are very fair. There is roof top seating also that is a wonderful place for the sunset over Banderas Bay. Walk up a tiny bit from the little marina to Como No, you won't be disappointed.
Rosa Mexicano Have you ever heard of blue shrimp? Well, the chef at Rosa Mexicano can wow you with his presentation of the shrimp (almost as big as lobster tail) on a bed of vegetables cooked al dente and accompanied with a cauliflower puree. The service is very attentive, but not intrusive and the hostess, Guadalupe, is very friendly and accommodating to any requests for favorite table or drink. This is a gem of a restaurant in middle of "restaurant row".
