The food is nothing extraordinary, they take a lot of time taking your order and like 3 waitress took care of our table but they weren't organized. It took 1:30 minutes to serve 2 cocktails, a guacamole and a burger and we waited for another hour for the rest of the order and it didn't come. We cancelled it and... More

We like this place and have returned often over the years. Two recommendations from their house specials - Pescado Tulum and Camaron Angel. The Pescado Tulum reads like a very rich dish, mahi mahi stuffed with avocado and cream cheese and topped with poblano cream sauce. The portion is large (if you're a sharing person it's a good one to... More

We really enjoy going to Tonita I. It truly deserves to be one of the best beach restaurants in Guayabitos. The food is always good and the margaritas are as well. I have to give a special shout out to their chicken soup which is outstanding. At dinner time you need to make a reservation as the place is usually... More

We went to Tonita's 1 the first night we were in Guaybitos and returned 6 times in the next two weeks. Service was very good, bathrooms a whole lot cleaner, staff friendlier than two years ago and I have to say they had the best hamburger on the beach.

This is right on the beach and the food is very good. Veracrazzana fish is excellent as well as the Azteca soup

Good food. Little noisy at times. Sit at the tables close to the entrance. You can watch the people walking by. You. Never know who will walk by that you know. Lots of regulars there.

Lovely setting right on the beach. Very good service and excellent food.All our meals were very good. Prices were perhaps a little high but well worth it. I recommend reservations.

We always go to this restaurant when in Guayabitos. It has consistent good food, and you can't beat the location. Right on the beach, you can hear the waves and watch the water. A nice variety of dishes to choose from, and good service. If you have a larger group, you won't get all your meals at once, but this... More
