We had a great meal and service with our friends. We sat on the upper outside level with a view of the street got to view live street entertainment, that was an added bonus.

We sat outside and although a little noisy it was very atmospheric. We were a large party and everyone loved their food. The chile rellenos are great and the fish of the day was fresh and well cooked. Would definitely recommend.

Dinner was very good. Very flavourful and great service. My advice is to sit inside, too much dust outside.

Best in town! We had chili rellanos which I love and these were the best I've ever had. All the food going to the tables near us looked amazing too. We've tried many places in town and this is the best so far. We will be back.

Good, friendly service, but food a little too greasy for us. Ordered fajitas and MahiMahi and both were too greasy.

We are here our first two nights in Sayulita, because it was that good! We had guests in town for a wedding and everybody that we told to go here absolutely loved it. The service is incredible and it was definitely one of our favorites!!

The cleanliness and laid back atmosphere drew us in . The food and service brought us back. Jazz background music away from the downtown circus was the bonus. Cici the hostess will try to accommodate your meal ( within reason ) and has made all our visits special. This place is why we keep coming to Sayulita. Real Mexico. If... More

The fist couple of years we went to this place frequently. Pretty good Mexican food with cool unusual presentation. That said, after many more years of dining in Sayulita, Sayulita Cafe is quite over priced and seems to be frequented by day trippers to Sayulita. If you have never been it's worth the experience, but only once.

This is the third time I have eaten at this restaurant - I agreed to give it one more try! Never again! Ordered a Mexican platter....it was served cold; the strips of flank steak were dried like beef jerky...the enchilada was dry and cold, the chili relllino was soggy.

Just look for the romantic candle-lit tables and the line out front waiting for a place to sit. Located just once block before Sayulita's main plaza, the Sayulita Cafe restaurant offers locals and visitors an incredible and authentic dining experience. A full bar with a plentiful wine list is available. Make sure to try one of the famous margaritas while you wait to be seated.
