We ate at Mar Plata in April and was sad to hear it was closed for the season when we returned to San Pancho in May. While a distance away from the center of San Pancho, it is worth the trip. Mar Plata served some...More

I wanted to review Mar Plata because it is an excellent, high end restaurant that is far from the usual restaurant area of Tercer Mundo in San Pancho. It is in a quiet residential district on Las Palmas and as such does not get a...More

Wow, it’s gutsy to build a restaurant far out of town. You need to go about 1-2 km from town on cobblestone to reach it but so worth it (we were staying very close, so not far for us) Bring a flashlight if you are...More

This is by far, the best option for a great dinner at San Pancho. Located in a quite spot closed to the beach, it has a nice terrace with ocean view. Great atmosphere, service and off course delicious food.

Even after chef Armandine left the area, Mar Plata used to be one of the finest restaurants on the Riviera Nayarit! Disappointingly, it has gone way down hill. We used to look forward to the wait staff bring to the table a tasty little loaf...More
