We enjoyed a beautiful happy hour here on the beach with Margaritas and Appetizers. Next time we will plan to come for a meal, we really like the place.

Stopped here for lunch while traveling for business. The food was great, tried several seafood dishes including diabla style fish and ceviche. All were excellent. The most amazing part is the view. Tables sit a few feet from the ocean and overlook the bay...beautiful.

We love this restaurant. Six of us had a Saturday lunch and loved everything we ordered. The nachos were beyond generous and the burgers are the best on the beach! Service is friendly and non-intrusive! Always spot on. The owner, Leticia, has been a friend through the years and is always very welcoming and attentive! Go for lunch and spend... More

On our recent trip to Punta Mita, we stopped here for a late lunch. We were not disappointed. Our waiter Christian, took excellent care to make sure our group was well fed with great drinks. We enjoyed guacamole, salads, burritos, fajitas, and red snapper. Overall, a great lunch our group totally enjoyed. Definitely would return.

It's great! Beachfront. Casual. Terrific food. Excellent value. Great service. Outstanding Margarita. Wonderful background music. Simply a really good place to... More

We come to Punta Mita frequently for vacation. We have eaten at most of the restaurants along the beach area. 6 years ago a local recommended the Original Anclote, and we have never been disappointed. The other night we ate there again. It was very good food with wonderful service. Grilled fish was fresh and well presented. The fajitas were... More

I used to really like this place, but after today, I'm not so sure. When I got my check, 15% propina(tip) was added in. The average tourist is probably not aware that it is illegal to add tip into a restaurant check. I did tell the waiter that I was aware of the law and that the regulatory agency wouldn't... More
