If you ever find yourself on highway 200 from Puerto Vallarta going to Punta de Mita, be sure to try Xitomates for Dinner. This restaurant has a great view, fresh seafood, music and a wonderful waiter named Tonyx. We had a two hour, leisurely dinner in this beautiful restaurant.

We had a great dinner out at this new restaurant. The owner and chef took time to come talk to us personally for quite some time. Our waiter was also very attentive and knowledgeable. And a nice serenade to top off the great service. The steak was fantastic as was the wine and Mezcal. Not cheap, but still a great deal considering what you would pay for this elsewhere. The location up on a hill overlooks the ocean. They are working on expanding to also add a hotel, which looks like it will be a great place to stay.

In the last several weeks my husband and I have had two really memorable dinners at this gem of a restaurant. The first visit was with two other couples and the second was with our two daughters. On both occasions everyone raved about their particular meal. The food is thoughtfully prepared, organic, local and very fresh. Chef Finch artfully blends the best of his Caribbean and Mexican culinary experiences in every dish. I would normally go for the fish in this region but the beef is out of this world delicious and not to be missed!

The setting is beyond charming: a lovely hacienda style villa, dinner is served on the terrace with views of Banderas Bay. You feel very much like you are a guest in someone's home. The ambience is tranquil and the romantic feel is accentuated with the occasional appearances by the very talented Napoleon playing his spanish guitar. From the moment we pulled off the road onto the cobblestone drive flanked by vibrant hued bougainvillea we knew that we were in for a very special treat. This is not casual beach side dinning but nor is it fussy and pretentious...If you want to enjoy a truly remarkable and authentic Mexican dining experience I recommend you search out Lox Xitomates. It is a short car ride from Bucerias La Cruz, Punta Mita, Litibu and Sayulita.

Los Xitomates was destined to become my favorite restaurant from the very first visit. The ambiance is quietly elegant, the service is attentive without being intrusive, the menu offerings are varied, innovative and well executed. Although Los Xitomates would be my first choice for a special occasion there's actually no reason not to visit more frequently because the prices are quite reasonable.

Our concierge chose this restaurant for us for our last night - and now we know why! Our evening was the most magical ever! Los Xitomates is a beautiful home perched up in the hill with an amazing view of the sunset bay. The staff was so personable and professional at the same time. Oscar was our server and he made sure absolutely everything was perfect. The food was the best we had all week - from the coconut shrimp, to the fresh salad, to the most delicious amazing steak ever tasted! Our magical night was completed with Napoleon, who serenaded us with his beautiful romantic voice and guitar. You can not miss this magical experience!!!
