Dining & Entertainment

Puerto Vallarta and the North Shore have scores of excellent restaurants serving all types of cuisine. We have included a short list of dining choices in the immediate area of Paradise Coves.

El Anclote

El Coral

Located at the west end of “Restaurant Row”, this spot is right in front of the Anclote surf break. Enjoy breakfast or lunch with one of the best views of all the water activities – surfing, kayaking and SUP. The food is good, the cervezas cold and the location cannot be beat.

El Dorado

A long established family restaurant in Punta Mita with a great view of Anclote beach. This is good location for family vacationers to have breakfast or lunch and watch the activities. Omelets, shrimp and avocado salads and seafood are offered at reasonable prices.

Margarita’s Restaurant & Bar

A small restaurant located on the beach serving excellent seafood and, as the name suggests, large and tasty margaritas. A friendly staff and nightly entertainment encourages repeat guests.

Rosa Mexicano

Opened in 2010, Rosa Mexicano is a welcome addition to the variety of Anclote dining choices. The menu is fresh and authentic Mexican cuisine and seafood.


This is a new restaurant that has opened at Porta Fortuna, inside the gates of Punta Mita. The restaurant boasts a reasonably priced very innovated menu served in a sophisticated beach club location. Call for reservations and directions. Tel (329) 291 6990.

In La Cruz

Tacos on the Street

This very casual restaurant, sometimes referred to as “the secret taco place” serves inexpensive and excellent Mexican food. This establishment is open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday on the patio of a private home with tables spilling out to the street. There are only three menu items with the most expensive ringing in at $1.75. You have a choice of rib eye tacos, rib eye quesadillas, or rib eye tostados and each item comes with onion, cilantro, hot sauce and guacamole. As this restaurant is BYOB bring a cooler of your favorite beer or wine.

Frascati Restorante

Frascati offers authentic Italian cuisine in a comfortable setting. Seafood, pasta, meat from the grill and the thin crust pizza are excellent. Meals are served on a pleasant patio by a sincere and good natured staff.

Marina Riviera Nayarit

Ikuai Restaurant

Ikuai Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on an upstairs patio overlooking the Marina. Since a very scenic location is the big feature, we suggest trying the restaurant for breakfast or lunch.
