You may be assured that only the freshest foods are found in dishes at Tuna Blanca, and diners can always expect to indulge themselves with a wonderful selection of fish that has been plucked right out of the Pacific Ocean or raised at local fisheries. Both in-season produce and organic products are also regularly highlighted, and these are locally obtained from farmers in Punta Mita and the surrounding area. While the menu is largely focused on fresh seafood, you'll also find authentic Mexican dishes and other menu items that will suit even the pickiest eater in your group. Be sure to inquire about the delicious vegetarian and gluten-free options as well.
