Guacamole appetizer was unique and delicious. Fish baked in santa leaf was juicy (order mole on the side). Staff was helpful but not overwhelming.

Extensive menu, very well executed. Fresh, buttery cuts of fish, home-made gyoza should not be overlooked. A bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Loved it.

About the restaurant
Inside of the Hotel W in Punta de Mita, Spice Market Beach is a restaurant dedicated to exploring the flavors of Southeast Asia. The restaurant takes its style from the family-style dining traditions that are common throughout the region. Here, instead of the guest ordering a meal and having it delivered, food arrives at the table throughout the course of the whole meal and is meant to be shared amongst the entire group. Spice Market Beach carries food from multiple countries including Taiwain, Vietnam, Korea and China. Spice Market Beach specializes in the various curries as well as tandoori chicken and vinegar-infused pork vindaloo.
