What a surprise! Tuna Blanca has to be one of the top restaurants we have had the pleasure of dinning at over the years. Jesse our waiter was fantastic. The food was among some of the best and I would put it up to some of the places we have been to in Paris, New York and San Francisco and... More

Wonderful service and great food! Everyone is delightful. The service makes the amazing setting that much more rewarding. Our server, Osmar, immediately remembered us from the last time we were there and greeted us with hugs, kisses, and amazing hospitality!

Absolutely world class food, terrifically friendly service, delicious wines at reasonable prices. The food rivals some of the best you could find in San Francisco or other metropolitan staples. Seafood dominates the menu at this picturesque gem on the edge of a small fishing harbor. Beautiful views from the beach-side dining. We had the chef's choice tasting menu with wine... More

We went back because it was so good the first time. We took another couple, they were impressed. Lovely setting by the bay, service and food was superb. The dessert was served on a surfboard and they make great Mexican coffee at the table

We had two dinners here with two different groups of people and both rated this restaurant the best we ate all. Punta de Mita has some good other places too, but this restaurant has it all! A very romantic setting on the beach, great food, ambiance, and wonderful service! They know how to celebrate special occasions with their surf board... More

Went to Tuna Blanca with our two children. The entire experience was awesome. Our waiters were excellent - very friendly and helpful. Every plate was amazing. Best octopus we've ever tasted. We all loved the desserts served on a surfboard!

Tuna Blanca had fantastic service and our group consensus was that it had great seafood. There aren't many vegetarian options and the vegetarian dishes we had weren't good. Our group enjoyed the mexican hot chocolate and the dessert served on the surf board. I would return.

Tuna Blanca has a lovely setting directly on the beach. Wanted to love the place, but the food warrants only 4 stars, not five. The two appetizers were fine. For entrees we had the red snapper and a filet. Both were ok, but not particularly memorable. Did not come close to Sufi. Service was very good.

Description
Tuna Blanca with the style and essence of Cafe des Artistes, but with a Mexican menu and atmosphere, beach type, chic and romantic, that gets in to a fusion with the best products of the region, organic, cultivated by the hands of local producers and fresh seafood provided by the fisherman of the Anclote beach. There is no doubt, an enigmatic restaurant, an obligated visit in Punta Mita.
