FB Instagram Youtube Top 6 Sayulita Restaurants for the Best Foodie Experience - TWSL

Mexican food is one of life’s greatest pleasures: it’s spicy, full of flavor, and there are endless variations of tacos, burritos, and chilaquiles. Considering the richness of this Latin American cuisine, it’s always a pleasure to sample versions of famous plates, and there’s no better place to try them out than Mexico! Sayulita restaurants are no exception to the rule of delicious Mexican eateries. Read all about the best restaurants in Sayulita here!

While Tulum restaurants have a strong focus on the organic and ancestral practices of the Mayans, the eateries at the smaller and more chill town of Sayulita lean more towards the casual side of food. The best restaurants in Sayulita are delicious stands and a few interesting beach restaurants.

1. La Rústica – One of the Best Restaurants in Sayulita

1. Food: 4

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 4

4. Design: 4

5. Service: 4

One of our favorite places that we returned to over and over again, both for the service and vibe. For sure one of the best Sayulita restaurants if you ask us!

This cool design restaurant serves great Italian food! Located in the heart of the little village, this delightful eatery is focused on bringing some of the most beloved Italian dishes to this little corner of the Mexican West Coast. It’s a place to enjoy delicious pasta, a yummy salad or great pizza combinations made in wood ovens. Their craft cocktails are also pretty good!

La Rústica has some really great coffee and pastry options! You can either hang out and eat sweets or finish your meal in style with dessert and a caffeine boost. The atmosphere of this place is very vibrant and during rush hours there is a cue in the street! And if you do not want to leave the place after dinner, the small bar is a perfect place to end the evening!

If you are looking for the best Sayulita restaurants you have to try out some street food. El Itacate was for sure our favoriet one!

This street food stand offers the best option for those who love Mexican food! Near the town’s main square, this El Itacate serves large portions of delicious local dishes, and you can take your pick between different types of meat (including rib eye, fish, chicken, and pork), all of which can be served on either corn or flour tortillas.

Although this darling of Sayulita restaurants is fairly focused on meats, their vegetarian options are pretty interesting as well. They include novelties like the spicy mushroom and garlic taco!

We weren’t super crazy about the cartoony décor, but the food experience more than makes up for it! The service is good and very quick as the turnaround in this place is very high. Be prepared to wait for a while as there is usually cue to get a table. A simple table in the picturesque streets of Sayulita, delicious Mexican food and a SOL bear, this is the best way of enjoying the Mexican kitchen.

Right next to El Itacate, the Burrito Revolution stand offers a one-of-a-kind premise: completely fresh burritos, made from scratch right in front of you! The only thing prepared in advance here are their custom sauces, which the chef makes fresh every morning. Other than that, this all-fresh experience is a pretty good way to get to know the local cuisine without spending too much, with a wide variety of burrito options, tacos, and quesadillas. And their breakfast game is on point, comparable to the best restaurants in Sayulita!

This iconic eatery is a good spot to try out the local fish tacos, with options like Marlin, Dorado and Yellow Fin. Also, this is one of the Sayulita restaurants that caters to vegetarian foodies! Even though the food is not as good as at its neighbor this is a must visit when in Sayulita!

If you’re looking to soak up the Pacific’s energy while chilling with some Mexican food, La Terrazola is a good place to start. This is one of the most laidback Sayulita restaurants. It isn’t too fancy but has a fantastic location! A casual and very simple eatery, La Terrazola aims to capture Sayulita’s chill environment! It’s definitely a good option for seafood lovers, and whoever is looking for the peace and quiet of these parts.

Don’t expect anything too elaborate like you would from one of the best restaurants in Sayulita. Just bury your toes in the sand and enjoy the salty air and the sound of the waves. Simple but magic!

We had a great sayulita breakfast here a couple of mornings before the crowd woke up. This is a super chill place with wooden tables, cute colorful chairs and a very chill atmosphere. The Sayulita food here was super delicious. Loved their taco style omelettes and their apple pancakes were spot on!  Perfect for breakfast, lunch or some afternoon snacks after the beach.
