We ate at Restaurant Carmelita, the location on the north side of the bridge. Had some great tacos and drinks, and chatted up the staff until the place closed down. It appears this location is larger and less of a bar scene as other photos have shown in the plaza location.

We ate here twice. The chilli relleno and pineapple shrimp were absolutely amazing. The place was fun, had excellent food, and great service.

This was my wife and I's favorite spot during our week long trip. The food was muy bien; we had the fish tacos, Tex mex fajitas (amazing!) and the chile relleno. The drinks were great as well, all this great food and drink were served by the amazing Johnny! He was so nice and attentive and also provided good laughs... More

Staff very friendly and great service. We had a few drinks. Margaritas are Nice and tasty. Tacos were good but missing a bit of flavor marlin and shrimp but the best was the shrimp quesadilla, comes with guacamole and pico de gallo very good!. Its good for a low or medium budget.

I have been to Restaurant Carmelita many times. Since the first visit they have treated me like family. Marco is fantastic and Jonathan takes great care of all guests. They have wonderful drinks and delicious food. It is a fun environment and you get a view of all the "action" in town. Salud!

Not recommended! Our waiter was very nice in the beginning but ended with a very bad attitude. My sister and I asked him for the vegetarian tacos and he said they had chile, onions and mushrooms. When he brought them, they didnt have any mushrooms so we asked him if he could bring them since he told us the tacos... More

My wife was sick and I was on my own for dinner. I thought about a hamburger and knew Carmelita's served one so I sat down. Three different members of the staff greeted and took care of the menu and drink order and chips and salsa. There was one other table occupied, but it was quite early in the evening.... More

Good location across from town square. Decent service and a good menu selection, with a full bar. I think there are better shrimp and fish tacos in Sayulita, but this is a relaxing setting - though a bit touristy. Good Margaritas!
