We headed to this restaurant due to top ratings on Trip Advisor-felt a bit bedraggled when we arrived as it is off the beaten path from the beach front restaurants and we were in swim gear. But the friendly staff and excellent food were worth the 15-20 min walk over from pier. Pictures of Carmelita with Rick Bayless were the first hint that this was a special spot. The staff were so enthusiastic about their food that they brought us out many extra things "just to try" and encouraged us to return to try more. The pride and enthusiasm for sharing their food and culture was epitome of our experience throughout visit to Mexico. Definitely recommend enjoying a meal-but bring cash-no credit cards accepted.
