This place is awesome! You have to go. Get the tableside guacamole for sure. This place is great for large groups and kids. Every time we have been with kids they've taken extra time to make sure the kids get food quickly and even put them at their own table. I've never had a bad experience! The chef will normally...

We had dinner at the Blue Shrimp while in Punta Mita. The dining room is lovely and we had a very nice meal in front of the ocean. Our meals were fresh and delicious and the service was excellent.

This restaurant is a fabulous choice when eating outside the gates of Punta Mita. The decor, food, waiters and view are super! We have eaten three times here and every meal was delicious. Along with drinks. My kids enjoy playing by the ocean and on the rocks while we sit and enjoy the sunset! Definitely a great choice for the... More

First of all Blue Shrimp is a nice typical beach front Mexican restaurant, thatched roof, candle light and charming waiters; plus an agreeable view of the ocean less than 15 meters from where you sit. The food is good, fresh and well prepared, but almost priced as if in America, as is the wine list. Way overpriced for named French... More

Excellent meal with kids at The Blue Shrimp. Ambience is great - close to water and nice lighting. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Red Snapper was excellent. Other reviews complained about the price, but I thought it was very reasonable considering the type of restaurant and quality of food. Less than $120 USD for all four of us... More

Well every time we go for dinner and drinks it is a must to order the shrimp. We like to hang out in the Real Madrid VIP room.

Went there for a drink by the beach on a Sunday afternoon ... the staff recommended their signature Margarita! So the 4 of us ordered without checking the menu/price list... what a big mistake that was! My friend and I ordered the passion fruit version and ended up with a mouthful of seeds for the next hour. Anyways we finished... More

I love the setting and friendly, professional service and keep returning for that reason. The food is above average & yes, a bit pricey. I've ordered the Coconut Shrimp as well as the Grilled Chicken on separate occasions and enjoyed them, though I wish I didn't have to order a separate starter to complete my meal.

This was our second visit. They are trying a little too hard! Not that that's a bad thing, right? But flames have their place and close to a woman's hair which could have hair spray is not the place for it. The dinner was wonderful but I don't like my "food to look at me," as the dad in A... More
