Our Favorite Dinner Options
La Rustica Beach Club
For dinner options, there are three favorites of ours. The first is La Rustica Beach Club. Located on the sand above El Anclote beach at Av. El Anclote #222a, this is a fun place to dine with a funky atmosphere. Known for its Mexican-inspired Mediterranean cuisine, everything was delicious from the first bite. Their menu ranges from starters that showcase uber-fresh seafood, to pasta and grilled meats, and more seafood, we could not get enough. The restaurant is deceptively narrow upon walking in and opens into a large room filled with a fun, energetic vibe. From start to finish, you will remember this delicious meal.
Our next recommendation is Si Sushi. Located at Av. El Anclote #15. This traditional Japanese restaurant is located in the heart of Punta de Mita. Greeting you when you go in, there is cool air conditioning and friendly, attentive wait staff. You can decide to eat at the bar or at one of the many tables they have. Friendly to dietary restrictions, we can not recommend this place enough. Using the freshest seafood possible and Japanese methods to prepare it, you are bound to be delighted. The staff recommended fantastic options and it was some of the freshest, most tasty sushi anyone had eaten in a long time. The chill vibe paired with a light, flavor-packed dinner, will also make this one of your next favorites.
Punta Mercedes Cocina a la Leña
Our last recommendation, also nestled on the sand above El Anclote beach, is Punta Mercedes Cocina a la Leña. Located at Av. El Anclote # 14. When eating here, the best tables are sitting on the sand with a view of the bay that is awe-inspiring. The lasting impresion of a postcard-worthy backdrop, it is hard not to be taken by the beauty of the ocean and sand. Translating their name, a la leña, to over wood fire and they serve up a delicious Mediterranean-inspired menu that has many grilled, unique takes on this elevated cuisine. Our favorites were off the grill: meats, seafood, and veggies with surprisingly delicious sides. By far, we loved the truffle french fries left you wanting more and became our new favorite. Between the good vibes of being located on the beach and its amazing food, this is a deliciously fun spot to stop in.
