    This restaurant was an absolutely beautiful setting but unfortunately the service and some of the food was horrible. There was only one other party dining at the same time as we were. Drinks and the food took a very long time to arrive and when the food finally did arrive, only three of the four guests at our table were served and it was at least 15 minutes before the 4th got their food. My daughters noodle soup was inedible (had a chemically/ plastic taste) so she sent it back and ordered fried rice. By the time that came, everyone was finished so she asked for it to go. The server said she’d box it up and we waited and waited and waited. When we asked about it, we were told she forgot to box it up so they would have to remake it. Again, we wait. We were also charged for the noodle dish that was sent back and not eaten. The wait staff was condescending and unhelpful. There are so many amazing restaurants in Punta Mita with impeccable service. I hope since this restaurant is new that they will train their staff and stay in business!

    This was a perfect night all around! I can’t say enough wonderful things about our waiter, Enrique. His recommendations were spot on and his personality was fantastic. The music was perfect chill beach music. The cocktails—perfection. The view of the cliff, the beach, and the waves is the best in all of Punta Mita, and we’ve been here countless times. Truly, it can’t be beat. And the food. The food. Beyond fantastic. The crispy shrimp, the sushi, the hamachi yuzu, the beef teriyaki, the chocolate cake and coconut ice cream. I assure all future patrons, you will enjoy yourself beyond measure. We will be back again this trip and surely just as grateful for the experience.

    Sorry Tuna Blanca there is a new number 1 in Punta Mita ! How exciting to discover a exclusive amazingly wonderful restaurant. Located in a exclusive gated community . First, staff - they made us feel like we were the most important regular guests, when this was our first visit. Second - menu, I want to try everything ! We shared all the Dim Sum - perfect . I had lobster Risotto- omg lobster a large tender portion. Risotto - just perfecto. My wife had the Peking Duck Tacos - sublime. Desert - chocolate cake yum. The ice Creme sandwich like none seen before . Delicious. Carol the Maitre D was so kind and accommodating. This restaurant is a huge reason that we will be back to Punta Mita soon.
