My wife and I, plus a friend, had dinner at this wonderful restaurant. We dined on the upper floor terrace, which was just a great place to enjoy our meal. Kelly and our friend, Ruth, both had the Tierra Viva shrimp, with arugula salad, tomatoes...and goat cheese, while I had the rosemary chicken, with spinach and beans. Ruth had wine with her meal, while my wife and I had margaritas. We all finished with the chocolate crepes with ice cream and strawberries. Exceptional food all around, and our server, Armando was both courteous and efficient. Great place for to eat, and well worth a visit.More

The food at this restaurant was excellent. All five of us agreed that the food exceeded our expectations. The molcajete mariscos was outstanding as well as the margaritas. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a lovely dining experience on the upstairs terrace. Food — presentation, variety, quality, taste, and cost — all exceeded expectations. I had the pistachio tuna, simply divine and well below US prices. Just wish Sayulita wasn’t so far from Nuevo Vallarta.

The shrimp tacos were very generous and great flavors. The shrimp burger was a winner, too. Had lunch and prices are very reasonable compared to the US.

We walked by and decided to try Tierra Viva for lunch and were glad we did! I had the fish and my wife had the shrimp tacos and they were the best. The service was great and friendly. We ended up coming back a few...days later and had smoothies, pancakes and potatoes for brunch and that was also great. One of our favorite restaurants in Sayulita.More

Service was nice - location is perfect. But the food just isn’t very good. I had the arrarrachara, tough and not seasoned well. Over cooked veggies. My husband had the mole. Not good. Guac was ok - still had some seasoning to it. All and...all, there’s better options in Sayu. Skip this one.More

Great sushi. We were surprised by the quality. Try the rainbow roll! And if you’re lucky you’ll get a seat next to the iguana tree.

Amazing sushi at dinner! The garlic Mahi was also fantastic. The waitress was very sweet and the location is away from the busy downtown. We went 2 times in the 10 days.

So good we had to go back twice! The ceviche was fantastic, the best we've had in Sayulita. The classic margaritas were also delivious and not too sweet. Very friendly and professional staff. They had a good mix of creative fusion dishes and traditional mexican...food.More

We ate at the bar which is right on an off street from the Square. We had four beers, an order of guacamole, and four entrées for under $40 US. The ahi was fresh and delicious.

Restaurant was recommended for good fish by a friend. We weren't interested in having fish but went to it anyway because I wanted a vegetarian chili relleno which they have. When we arrived I asked a server for a table for two and said sit...anywhere. There was only one small table available but no chairs at it so we had to take the only other available table which seats 6. The same server came and rudely scolded us for choosing a table for 6. He said sit anywhere and it was the only table! My husband had the tortilla soup with some sushi which he enjoyed. Unfortunately when I received the vegetarian chili relleno the rice and vegetables were cold and the relleno was terrible. I'm not a picky eater but didn't like the taste at all. It didn't seem like it was made from scratch. The chili had a luke warm batter and was stuffed with spinach and mushrooms. There was no cheese and no sauce except some mayo squirted on top. It was weird. I couldn't eat any of it . When our server noticed I hadn't touched it he gave me a thumbs up as a question. I told him the sides were cold and the relleno didn't taste good. He didn't know what to say so said nothing. I asked to order something else and he brought the menu. I ordered the veggie tower appetizer and enjoyed it. When we got the bill the relleno was on it and the tower wasn't. Terrible service to charge for the more expensive item that I couldn't eat. We paid the bill anyway as I didn't want to complain more. Also didn't think they would deal with it appropriately. The dinner rush had ended and the servers were more interested in socializing with each other than serving customers. We had minimal and delayed service the entire time.More

Tierra Viva was easily one of our most memorable restaurants in Sayulita. From the top-notch serving staff who were attentive, courteous, and efficient to the incredibly tasty food and drink they served, Tierra Viva was one of the highlights of our trip to Sayulita.

Nice restaurant with great food. Menu isn't huge but the seafood dishes are very good, we especially enjoyed the three different shrimp(prawn) dishes which were very well done. We ate here twice during our trip.
