Don Pedro's Restaurant & Bar

Serving breakfast - lunch - dinner!

Open since 1994, owners Damien and Nicholas has consistantly provided an excellent dining experience with unmatched quality standards to this Mediterranean style Sayulita oceanfront restaurant. Chef Parrillo culinary style expertly prepares a wide range of Mediterranean specialties using only the finest and freshest ingredients. Enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner in the formal dining room or, for the more casually inclined, relax on the beach and sample from the Bar & Grill menu. Don Pedro´s remains unique for its commitment to quality and rustic ambiance. Come and experience elegant beachfront dining in an Old World atmosphere.

The Story of Don Pedro's - In 1992, two cousins, Damien and Nicholas, set off from Los Angeles on a surf and culinary adventure. Making their way south, they stumbled upon a diamond-in-the-rough called Sayulita. With one phone line in town at the Paleteria and hardly any other services, Sayulita was a dusty fishing village that time seemed to have forgotten. Tucked into a jungle-clad bay with a consistent rivermouth break, Sayulita's serene natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the locals impressed the two travelers. So much that they decided to stay. And thus a dream began to crystallize - to build a world-class restaurant on the beach of this little paradise. Like many passionate dreamers, they were laughed at, told it would never work. But true to the old adage "if you build it, they will come", they did... and the people came. Over fourteen years later, they keep coming back.

Excellent Quality, personal service and my favorite was the Lobster Ravioli. Night time is great when it is dark out and you hear the waves, day if fun because you watch the waves and the surfers.

A friend from Sayulita took us to Don Pedro's the Lobster Ravoli was the best thing I have ever eaten. I cant wait to go back in November and go there again. Wonderful service,good food, and beautiful scenery.

This has been our favorite place to eat for years! There is no one in Sayulita that provides such consistency. We love the atmosphere and the view is stunning. Thank you!
