You absolutely can't go wrong with what you order here. The food is delicious. This place was recommended by a new friend we met while we were in Sayulita, and it did not disappoint. The four of us ordered different dishes and appetizers and they were all great, it was hard to pick a favorite.

We dined here on our second night in Sayulita, was recommended by a lady we spoke with near the beach. Limited menu, since I'm not a seafood or fish person but tried their beef tacos that were excellent, two in our party had the chicken special which had blueberries( fancy that) the other had the ribs. Found out one of... More

Happened to walk by on Feb. 5th, and it looked very inviting. They were gracious enough to hold a table for four of us coming off la playa.Our meals, including "pollo en mole, "camaron coco", and "filete dorado al ajo" were all quite good.A bottle of Las Moras sauvignon blanc went well with our meals. Fine house desserts. We would... More

We then went to Tierra Viva and it did not disappoint. Wow. Come for the Coconut shrimp (not Mexican) and Mahi Mahi garlic butter dish. I am a foodie and should be considered "picky" and this place is perfect. Super friendly staff, one of the best margarita's I have ever had, perfect food... go

This restaurant sits on the corner a block from the beach surrounded by a couple of huge beautiful trees. These trees are the home of some the the biggest and brightest iguanas and you stand a fair chance of seeing them during your meal. The food is delicious with choices ranging from burgers to seafood to wonderful salads and much... More

Very nice restaurant in the centre of town but on a quiet corner. We enjoyed our first meals of lemon chicken and shrimp with braised fennel so much we came back a second night and had a generous portion of mahi mahi and delicious chicken fajitas. Highly recommended!

A wonderful find. We had dinner here twice and breakfast once while in Sayulita. After very good margaritas and guacamole and chips, the four of us had a variety of entrees for the dinners--all of which were excellent. For breakfast the eggs benedict as well as the fresh orange and green juices were excellent as well.

Tierra Viva provides the best of all worlds - a very nice, central yet still quiet location, great food and excellent service. The owner (Charlie) is very active in the management of the restaurant as well as the relatively new rooftop bar/restaurant which is also worth a visit. We've been to Sayulita many times and always make sure to have... More

Can't believe this isn't a top 5 in Sayulita. The food was excellent and an eye for detail. Great presentation from appys to dessert....we usually pass on dessert, good thing we made an exception. The only problem was we discovered this on our last night, we would have returned several times. It was a pleasure meeting Terry, the owner of... More
