Hi peeps and my apologies for the radio silence. It's peak high season in Sayulita and I've been busy like never before (not complaining, the opposite actually, I am very grateful). I wanted to share with you what every tourist wants to know when they come to town: where to eat. These are my top picks, if you have any other recommendations, please feel free to share them in the comment section below :). Food is thy medicine and food in my little home town is super delish, yum!

I’ve selected my favorite restaurants (in no particular order) for you to explore:

La Rustica

Great, fast service and a beautiful ambiance. Some of the tables are on the street if you prefer not to have cars passing by, request an inside table. If you’re lucky, you might even experience a street performance while dining here. Make sure to try their wood fire oven pizzas, my personal fave is the quatro quesos!

Address: Calle Avenida Revolucion 40

El Itacate

El Itacate

El Itacate

A small authentic taco place on a busy street. They’ve only got a few tables so keep that in mind. From fish to steak to vegetarian, this is the taco place with the best assortment. My favorite: Quesadilla de Jamaica and tinga de zanahoria, also: the pineapple basil water!

Address: Calle José Mariscal

Don Pedro’s Restaurant

Fine dining on the beach. This restaurant is one of the oldest restaurants in town and is known for its great location and fresh seafood. Their menu is a fusion of modern cuisines. Try the catch of the day and enjoy their delicious margaritas. They offer Mediterranean, Mexican and Asian inspired dishes. On Mondays they have salsa nights, even if you don’t dance, it’s very impressive to watch the beautiful dancers gather here.

Address: Calle Marlin 2

Sayulita Cafe

Authentic and absolutely delicious traditional Mexican food. This restaurant is mostly known for their Chile Relleno (stuffed pepper dish) and is therefore also known as the house of Chile Relleno. They also have a very tasty tortilla soup on their menu. The restaurant is partially on the street, but there are two floors. If,  you’d like to be seated upstairs, we suggest you make a reservation.

Address: Avenida Revolucion 37


Fine dining at Leda

Fine dining at Leda

A modern Italian restaurant with mouth-watering pastas. Nestled in its own little plaza with very knowledgeable and professional staff, this is a great option if you’re craving something other than tacos. Try their gnocchi, yum!

Address: Avenida Revolucion 3

Tierra Viva

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this cute place is located just one block from the beach. They have a wide selection of international wines and an interesting fusion of Mexican dishes to Caribbean flavors. Their eggs benedict are amazing, so are their delicious salads.

Address: Calle Marlin 10

Enjoy and buen provecho!!!
