Beachfront Restaurant for Lunch

I had been working in Sayulita on the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico all morning, and called my girlfriend to see if she wanted to have some lunch. It was around 1:00 in the afternoon, and my girlfriend and I were both really hungry.There are a lot of good and different restaurants, and plenty of great taco places, however, I wanted to try somewhere that I had not eaten before. I was looking for some fresh seafood. I knew of the Captain Cook Restaurant, and that it was located right on the beach, and had wanted to try their food. I really love eating at beachfront restaurants.

Enjoying Seafood For Lunch

Captain Cook has a lot to choose from on their menu, specializing in Seafood like mussels in white wine sauce and every fish you can think of!  They have the usual Mexican cuisine of course, like tacos and burritos and cheviche, but they also have great appetizers like crab cheese puffs, stuffed Portabello mushrooms and spicy wings. A large variety of salads and  mention yummy looking burgers as I saw one the other day when discovering the restaurant.

I decided on the Red Snapper, which you can order a variety of sizes and weight, which are in kilos. It’s fun because it comes on a large platter that you can share with friends. I also ordered a mixed seafood cocktail, which had octopus, shrimp and scallops. My friend ordered the coconut shrimp. We both had yummy lemonade. It was still a little early for us to be drinking, especially on a work day, however they have a full bar with a happy bartender, and a good menu of drinks.

A nice thing about the menu at Captain Cook Restaurant is that it is written in English and Spanish! So, if you speak English, and are a bit rusty on your Spanish, its a wonderful thing! Click on a picture to go to the Riviera Nayarit Picture Gallery.

We ordered lunch, and while we sipped on our lemonades our server brought us some chips, crackers for the seafood cocktail and salsa. They wait staff was very friendly, and spoke good English as well. They were professional and polite.

Our food arrived in an appropriate amount of time, and it looked delicious! The Red Snapper looked cooked to perfection,and my friends shrimp were big and plump. They both came with salad and my Red Snapper came with rice as well.The waiter also brought out some fresh tortillas.

It was fun sitting out on the beach under an umbrella watching the surfers. They also have plenty of room inside the restaurant with nice wooden tables and chairs that look out over the beach and ocean.
I tried my friends coconut shrimp, which happens to be one of my favorite way to eat shrimp, and it was delicious and not over cooked, and the oil tasted clean and fresh.
We took our time eating and chatting. It was a delightful lunch filled with yummy seafood flavor, and I ate every last bite.  We left happy with our stomachs full.

Whether you are on your Mexico vacation, or if you live in the neighborhood, come enjoy the beachfront restaurant Captain Cook and enjoy some lunch or dinner with a seafood flair on the Riviera Nayarit in Sayulita Mexico.
