Places to eat & drink in Punta Mita

A bar counter

La Rustica Mita in downtown Punta Mita is lively, delicious and makes you feel like you're in a magazine with its design and style. Come for the atmosphere, stay for the handmade cocktails and woodfired pizzas.

Restaurant Sufi overlooks the Bay of Banderas and makes you question if you're in Mexico or on the Mediterranean. The food is the same, a combination of flavors and recipes that has been dubbed "Mexiterranean."

Zicatela is fun for the whole family. Brightly colored walls, fun light fixtures and decorative tiles draw you in but the fresh, local food keeps you coming back.

Mita Mary's at The St. Regis is known for both its margaritas and sunsets. Nestled on the sand, this casual dining experience is the backdrop for family memories that last a lifetime.

MINA: Perfect for diners of all ages, MINA is oceanside, authentically decorated and well staffed.

Casa Teresa when you want to scratch your Italian food craving itch, come here. It is the real deal.

El Cafecito de Mita: The best way to wake up each morning. A local coffee shop the whole family can enjoy.

Norma's Tacos where Norma will cook for you from her home while you perch on her porch. Local. Homemade. Fresh. Unique. Norma's is not to be missed.
