Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 February 2018

We love coming to Punta de Mita and were excited to try this newer restaurant. Los Xitomates did not disappoint! The setting is lovely, the service was excellent and the menu choices were inventive and delicious. We would highly recommend this restaurant for diners looking for high quality ingredients. Be sure to order at least one margarita and the desert sampler. The owner called a cab for us when we were done dining, which was very much appreciated as this restaurunt is a little out of the way. It was well worth the trip.

We went to dinner with six friends. We were delightfully surprised with our wonderful overall experience. We were happy to chat with Chef Louis, his wife, and staff. The ambience was charming and the service excellent. All six of us would recommend our meals of snapper, ribeye steak, and the pablano pasta with squash blossom. The highlight was the appetizer of stuffed mushrooms. We would recommend this to anyone that enjoys interesting food and lovely surroundings!

We have been coming to this area to vacation for over 10 years. We stay away from hectic Puerto Vallarta. We tend to stay in the area near La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. We had thought we had eaten at all of the better finer dining options in this area, until we came across Los Xitomates, and what a pleasant surprise! I heard that this restaurant/chief had been in Puerto Vallarta for several years, but decided to relocate out of PV....so this area’s gain, and PV’s loss. I think it is the second year in this location so still building up a following. The restaurant is in a hacienda on a hill surrounded by trees, flowers and birds...you can see the bay in the distance. You dine overlooking the pool (I think there are 8 apartments to rent). Hardest part was figuring out which drive way to take off the main highway....tip: driving from La Cruz, it is the first drIve way on the right immediately before the Xitomates sign...seems obvious as I typed this, but it was not at the time. Wonderful setting, very attentive service and excellent food. Xitomates is definitely on our “go to” list when we return to the area next year. I realize that most people want to dine near the bay, but Xitomates offers a unique alternative setting which we found very relaxing...which made the dinner all the more enjoyable.

Overly intrusive owner with strange affect. Food was slow and bland. You eat on the patio of a private home and can glimpse the master bedroom, if that does it for you.

Los Xitomates is a hidden gem off the beaten path. If you want an intimate dinner with an amazing view you have to come here while in Punta Mita. Luis will open his restaurant and his heart to anyone who comes to share his cuisine and amazing stories of worldly travel. Adri and I will be back!
