Great Menu of basics but the food was way better than basic. Shrimp ceviche with an orange pineapple almond twist. Shrimp chipotle with pasta. Hearty chicken quesadillas. Everything was done well with a unique flavor. Highly recommend.

Stopped by mid-day to watch the NCAA tournament, met the owner and some local folks, drank some tequila and had a great time. Can't vouch for the food bc we didn't eat, but the atmosphere was super friendly and I bet it's a great place for dinner too.

We would stop here before heading home for the evening (and the big hill climb). It was fun having a cold drink and late night snack. Being just outside of downtown it was much quieter sitting outside, a great way to end a day of sight seeing. Friendly staff.

Nice atmosphere with open air dining. The menu filled with fresh food, locally sourced ingredients made it hard to choose. I decided on the fish with Veracruz sauce and paired it with a nice bottle of wine as they had a good selection of both red and white.

There are a lot of good places to eat in Sayulita, but most are a similar Mexican fare or Italian/pizza. Tropical house definitely had some different flavors to choose from for dinner and it was all excellent.

A large group of family enjoyed breakfast here. The service was quick and attentive and the food was great. Tropical House is located in the "North Sayulita" section of town on "the other side of the bridge". This area happens to be quite charming in the evening and far more quiet (but in a nice way). The area and the... More

You have to walk about 5-10 mins out of town to find this place but please don't miss it! The owner knows his cocktails and tequila and makes some of the freshest, cleanest margaritas I've had. We stopped in "for a drink" and stayed until it was time for a burrito and bed. Lots of people coming in and out... More
