Great for watching the sunset right on the beach. My pizza was good, my husbands was delicious and my mom liked her fish and vegesables. We were told Salsa dancing on Monday started at 7 but it started after 8

I stayed at Sayulita Cabins in the Tamarindos neighborhood( lovely) and so this was an easy walk up the tiny hill across the road to the restaurant. We had fish tacos and the kids had spaghetti. Really nice wine I forgot to get the name of, too bad! It's open in the front but you can tuck in the back... More

Had the Molcahette; a searing hot stone bowl filled with everything imaginable; chicken, steak, shrimp, cactus, onions all "swimming" in a beautiful green... More

Our family travels to Sayulita often and we always have one dinner at Don Juan's because the food is so authentic and so delicious. This is a relaxed dining atmosphere outside of 'downtown' Sayulita. Portions are always large and beautifully presented. Great margueritas.

We have eaten here on the last two visits and have enjoyed both meals. Substantial menu if you are looking for variety. Reasonable prices. Good for children/families.

Don Juan's is a 5 minute walk south of Saylita's plaza situated next to the temporary bus station on the Punta de Mita road. Meeting my partner at the bus we decided to dine at Don Juan's as numerous "expats" and locals had recommend it. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The server was... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. Sayulita Centro is very crowded and busy in the holiday season. We walked a short distance to Don Juan's and it was worth it. The service was excellent, the food was great and the price was right. Loved it. Highly recommend no matter what the season! PS Very clean!!
