A fun part of any great vacation is the opportunity to sample the local cuisine, and you'll find plenty of amazing food venues throughout stunning Punta Mita, Mexico. When you're not being pampered with made-to-order, gourmet meals prepared by your own private chef at one of our luxury villas, you'll definitely want to indulge in the exquisite cuisine that you'll find in Punta Mita. If you can't make it to all of the area restaurants, then be sure to put Mita Mary Boat Bistro at the top of your dining list, and you'll definitely be glad that you did.
Mita Mary Boat Bistro
For a unique and delicious dining experience, you couldn't choose a better spot than this bistro that is beautifully located on gorgeous Sea Breeze Beach. You can expect to enjoy your lunch, dinner or drinks at one of the many umbrella-covered tables, or you can sit at the tables that can be found under a roof of dried palm fronds. You'll see that this restaurant's bar and kitchen is made up of an old, one-sided boat that has been beautifully decorated by local artist Marco Alvarez. While there are many restaurants in Punta Mita that offer formal, upscale dining, this little bistro is the place to go for a much more casual beach experience that allows you to kick off your shoes and wiggle your toes in the warm, clean sand. There's also plenty of room for your children to play in the sand or run along the water's edge while you sit back and enjoy your drinks. The seaside atmosphere is completely relaxed, and you're sure to enjoy the excellent views of the ocean during the day or saying goodnight over a drink while the sun sets beautifully over the water.
Amazingly Fresh Menu Items
It's impossible to get food any fresher than the delicious fare that is offered at this bistro because the local fishermen quite literally bring their fresh catches straight to the chefs. Your taste buds will delight at the first bite of well-prepared menu items that include shrimp and fish tacos, grilled lobster and fish, oysters, mahi mahi, scallops, prawns and octopus. The bistro also offers an amazing selection of original tropical drinks, Mexican craft brews, cocktails and a huge variety of margaritas. Daily offerings are largely dependent on the luck of the fishermen, but you can visit the bistro's Facebook page to see some photos of the daily catches and learn more about special offerings.
A Little History
Punta Mita's locals will be happy to tell you tales of how their ancestors set sail to fish the ocean waters from the very spot where the bistro now sits. Due to treacherous waves, powerful winds and sudden water spouts, some of those brave fishermen never made it back home to their waiting wives and children. As a special tribute to those who lost their lives to the sea, you'll be able to see a lovely wooden cross that sits on top of a small rock island just offshore and completely visible from your seat at the bistro.
