    We love La Negra. It is the first restaurant we go to every time we visit Bucerias and the last one we dine at before we leave. We have had a love affair with La Negra for at least 8 years! The food is delicious and the restaurant has a super cool vibe. If you want a party scene, go upstairs - great music. They made some capital improvements this year so the restaurant is better than ever - more seating, great new pizza ovens, a bit more upscale looking. Their mixed drinks are amazing. We are partial to the Berry Good but they are all wonderful. We are now homeowners in Bucerias. This is our #1 place and our guests of all ages love it. The crowd is a nice mix of Spanish and English speakers. This is a hidden gem on a side street. Enjoy!

    Over the years we have come to enjoy La Negra, its food, service and general good vibe. We have often sat outside. This visit, we were ushered upstairs to a wonderfully decorated 2nd floor, open to the neihbourhood, allowing in the breeze. Dominating the "ceiling" are the branches of their iconic tree which grows right out front. The bar is lively staffed with 2-3 bartenders who never seem to stop shaking cocktails and cracking beer. A good selection of both. Wait staff is attentive and friendly. We ordered the Royal Hamburgers served with wedge pototatoes. One person ordered the tacos. Everything is delicious. If loud music disturbs you I suggest eating outside or downstairs. La Negra is always a highlight for us!

    Everything was so great! We stopped in on a Monday so it wasn’t too busy. We ordered ceviche aguachido and bárbaro, guacamole, and the petit filet. We also had some great craft mezcal cocktails that our waiter recommended; we were not disappointed. For dessert we had the brownie and that was excellent, too. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was very nice. Everything we ordered was very delicious. I wish I could give more stars. Easily one of the best dining experiences I have had, period. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for fresh flavors & a great ambiance. 11/10. Excellent. Consistently exceeded our expectations.

    One of the best places in all Bahia de Banderas. Here food and drinks are "culture". Everything is excellent: ambiance (both sidewalk sitting and the amazing terrace), mixology (they have their signature cocktails as well as "house" mezcal, tequila and raicilla) and obviously food (any plate on the menu is world class). Enjoy La Negra while you can!!!!

    Great place to have dinner outside with friends and family. The place at night is awesome especially on the second floor and has a chill vibe. Usually there's a dj on Fridays and Saturdays but its also enjoyable on other days of the week. Highly recommend!

    La Negra is clearly a labour of love. Care and attention to detail is evidenced in everything from the hospitality to food to decor and music. The owners Serena and Hector love what they do and their passion for food, art and music infectious. Dining here is an experience in all those things and in community. This team has a loyal following so book early and don’t miss the opportunity to eat here if you are in the area.

    Great, vibe here, very modern and minimalistic. They have amazing cocktails, I had the Mezcal Nublado and it blew me away. For my entree I tried the Bianca pizza which had hints of apple and pecans. Not something you'd think you'd want on a pizza, but it was really yummy.
