DON BONITO CAFE

Another one of my favorite Sayulita restaurants for brekky is Don Bonito. A beautiful, elegant boutique hotel featuring a Café just as divine as the rest of the hotel.

It’s open to the public and offers healthy grab-and-go food, delicious smoothies, acai bowls, and hand-crafted coffees to fuel your days in Sayulita.

It’s a little bit further away from the main plaza than other places but the big airy, modern space is well worth the 10-minute walk to get there.

BARRACUDA SAYULITA

Barracuda is one of the restaurants on the most touristy street of Sayulita and always pretty busy, but their food is top-notch and the service is amazing.

It is one of the fancier restaurants in Sayulita but still reasonable priced. The fish is always a fresh catch of the day and cooked to just the right degree of doneness.

BICHOS

My favorite and simultaneously the most popular local taco joint in Sayulita is Bichos. I literally ate here at least 4 times a week it’s that freaking good! The cheapest taco being 25 MXN, it’d be rude not to grab a bite to eat!

The best part is the long table of condiments and toppings you can add to your meal to create your own, perfect taco. They also sell local beers and fresh juice.

Open daily from 5 pm till late.

ACHARA THAI

You’ll find this little gem in the heart of downtown Sayulita. The owner Sam was born and raised in New York City and has worked in the Brooklyn and Manhattan restaurant scene until he fulfilled his dream of moving to the beach in Mexico in 2017.

The only thing Sam was missing was a Thai restaurant offering traditional Thai cuisine so he took it onto himself to create a space like that and opened Achara Thai.

All curry pastes and sauces are made in-house following traditional recipes and using only the freshest ingredients. All Achara cocktails are made with fresh-squeezed juice, garden-fresh herbs, and handcrafted syrups. 

Achara is also very committed to shrinking its carbon footprint and they have some cool measurements in place to do that. 

Open Wednesday – Sunday from 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm. Closed Monday and Tuesday.

Another must-go-to restaurant in Sayulita is undoubtedly Sayulita Café Casa del Chile Relleno.

Come and enjoy a romantic dinner on their newly built terrace with a view of the main street. It can get quite busy but don’t worry, enjoy one of their famous margaritas at the bar until you are seated and you’ll forget all about the wait. Margarita Happy Hour is from 4 – 5 pm.

YAMBAK

Last but not least on this list of best Sayulita restaurants is Yambak! This is Sayulita’s first and only brewery with a huge selection of in-home beers as well as national craft beer on tap.

Not only the beer is great, but the food is also a highlight as well. The most requested is Hawaiian poke among other options such as the 4:20 hamburger, papanatas, wings, and avocado dippers (slices of avocado in breadcrumbs with a delicious dressing).

All of this is accompanied by live music and DJ’s creating a fun, unique atmosphere. Come for dinner, stay for the party.
