Authentic, creative, mexican cuisine in Punta Mita. The staff and service were excellent. A great selection of tequila. The house special hibiscus margarita was different and tasty. We ate family style with a mix of fish, chicken, ribs, sausage, and shrimp. Efficient way to sample local fare with a group. It is right on the beach, outside with boats floating... More

Enjoy a beautiful setting on the sand, with views of the bay, the boats in a tropical location. Great grill food and margaritas and drinks are delicious. Great service.

The restaurant is located at the end of the beach restaurant 'strip' in Punta de Mita....keep walking past all of the restaurants and head to the end of the road!

The restaurant was quiet and the service was amazing! What a picturesque place, right on the harbor, with sand floors, palm leaf roof, and excellent lighting. The food was amazing (diverse and flavourful) and the presentation was the perfect combination of formal and casual. It was a Tuesday night, and the Brazilian Bossa Nova band were great!!

The owner was pleasant and the staff attentive. Pro: - The asparagus/strawberry salad was unique and tasty, as was their special margarita. - green chorizo, homemade salsas OK/ wouldn't order again: - Ribs, shrimp Con: Caveat Emptor letting the owner select without looking at the menu. I saw $$-$$$ on TA and this was $30 p.p.for food without alcohol. Taxi... More

On our first visit to Serendipity, we stopped in without a reservation for supper. They asked us to take a seat at the bar, but within a few minutes had created a table for us. Sam asked us to trust him to order for us, and even with a vegetarian in our group, he presented us with delicious meal choices.... More

The restaurant is at the end of the one and only beach front street in the tiny village of El Anclote and has a view directly onto the fishing harbour. The setting is enhanced by trailing vines that frame the view. Tables are brightly painted and go with the traditional Mexican plates. Organic insect repellent is an added plus. The... More
