Sayulita Fish Taco Restaurant and Tequila Bar

The owners, 4th generation Sayulian, Dora Alicia Castellon Placencia and American husband Mark Alberto Holt have turned Dora's family, plaza front home, into a classic Mexican multileveled restaurant. In 2008 Sayulita Fish Taco expanded into the family's old tortillaria with a 180+ bottle Tequila Bar. The collection of tequila is the largest in the state. New and classic labels stand proud along side the exclusive works of today's masterpiece tequilas. The glass and ceramic bottles are displayed in the small and rustic sipping bar. Also attached to the bar is a covered terrace lounge with a priceless view of the village plaza.

This is my home town bar, and where I hang my hat. I have spent lots (and lots) of time in bars over the years, and I have not felt so at home as I do here. I have been coming to Sayulita since 2000, and Mark Albert and Dora actually hosted my Wedding rehearsal dinner in their old location, and the amazing food at Sayulita Fish Taco made a mark on all the guests, and my Wife and I. I am a Mango salsa and Shoebox burrito guy, but there is something in the menu for all types. In 2006 after many more vacations in Sayulita, we moved here, and SFT has been a regular dining spot and place to get away from the hustle of high season (sometimes, since it is a very popular restaurant). Early this year, those of my ilk were blessed with the opening of the S.F.T. Tequila Bar - a wide selection of Tequilas and Mezcals, plus an awesome staff (Miguel, you rule) make for a great experience for the new comer or a seasoned pro. You can for a small price buy a "rating book" and join the SFT Tequila Squad. With the book, you can track your drinks, rate them, and make notes. Mark keeps these all on hand for you, for your next visit. The fact that the size of the bar is small, is great and cozy. I find my fave time to drink there is around 3pm, for sometimes the night gets crowded and you can lose some of the intimacy. Luckily, I love to drink during the day. Next time you are in Mexico, make a straight line to the Sayulita and the S.F.T. Tequila Bar.

I have enjoyed this place for years, my favorite spot on the mainland for tasty Baja-style fish tacos, and now... it's a tequila bar as well. The new bar just opened in Dec 08 and has over 200+ bottles. The selection is broad; blancos, reposados, anejos, mezcals and specialty tequilas. Owner Mark Alberto and bartender Miguel put a lot of effort into making the small bar feel warm, friendly and suave... the perfect spot to sip your favorite tequila. And while it is centrally located on the plaza, it's a also a perfect spot to escape the hustle and noise of downtown Sayulita. Low lighting and a tranquilo vibe make it more suited for couples than for frat dudes on spring break. And here's a very cool and unique feature of this bar: if you plan to visit regularly, a few pesos buys you a Tequila Bar membership card. On this, note your own reviews and comments for each new tequila you try. This will come in handy on your 3rd or 4th visit and want to remember your new favorites. They keep your card on file, and await your return.
