Off the beaten path, you would never expect to find a place as good as Don Juan's. You could so easily miss this place if you weren't paying attention and if you wet paying attention you my pass it thinking it couldn't be good. But, it is good, it's very good and it's really nice inside. Don Juan's is a... More

My wife and I ate at Don Juan's three times in our 1 week stay in Sayulita. We rented a house nearby and enjoyed the Cochinita Pibil, the MahiMahi, the coconut shrimp and the house salad. Each dish was prepared with care and the presentation was wonderful. The service was excellent both times we ate inside the restaurant and quick... More

My husband and I went here with our friends while on a yoga retreat last May. We actually ate dinner here twice as we so loved the setting on the beach AND the great food. I highly recommend going here if ever in Sayulita. I am a vegetarian and was able to find a couple items to meet my needs.... More

This is a Mexican restaurant with tablecloths and cloth napkins. I loved the Chiles en Nogada but all the dishes were excellent.

We visited Don Juan's 3 times on this trip, and went for breakfast (great breakfast), lunch and dinner. Consistently great food and service and away from the "business" of Sayulita. Eat here!

Excellent dinner in this authentic family run restaurant just a short walk form the town center. We started with terrific margaritas and a huge pina colada. Then moved on to great guacamole and chips. The main courses were some of the best Mexican food we ever had. We had the chicken chipotle, pork tacos, and enchiladas. Even the hamburguesa was...

The food is incredible and the restaurant is lovely! The fish tacos are to die for and everything else is so so delicious. We have tried lots of places and this is the best one! It is located just a bit outside of town but the walk to still very short. You will really savour the food!

We've been away from Mexico for a couple of years, and maybe once, twice of even three times a month during all that time we've spoken about the fantastic food at Don Juan's! We were potentially building ourselves up for a major, heart-wrenching disappointment, I know, but it didn't happen. The food here is still wonderful. The service and the... More

Don Juan's was recommended to us by ex pats living in Sayulita and what a find. Great food, friendly and accommodating staff (we needed both GF and vegetarian options), and delicious food. We first went for lunch and then saw the breakfast menu and returned. Everything we had was outstanding. Located just up the hill across Punta Mita highway. It... More
