Sandzibar A Culinary Inspiration

article-image

Sandzibar is Punta de Mita’s hottest new restaurant and bar on the beach in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Esteemed European Chef Bernhard Güth graced select kitchens in Milan and New York before arriving in Mexico and falling in love with the lifestyle and charm of Puerto Vallarta where he opened two iconic restaurants, Trio and Vitea. Now, Chef Bernard, out of his personal love of La Cruz has recently opened Sandzibar and created a truly beautiful and engaging spot for foodies.

The menu is casual beach dining with the flavors that Bernard is famous for. The array of dishes range from pizzas prepared in a wood burning oven, fresh mussels flown in from Baja on Saturdays, grilled Portobello mushroom paninis, a chili pepper soup with chorizo and roasted onions, fresh fish and lobster even rabbit, all graced by fresh herbs from their potted garden.

The main dining area is under a pergola where the aromas that drift from the open kitchen and wood burning oven waft throughout. Floating over the sandy beach is a raised wooden deck has 360 degree ocean vistas from mountain, jungle, beach, shoreline, and the backdrop of beautiful villas nestled in the hillside of the Real del Mar development reminiscent of Positano, When night falls, the twinkling lights of the Bay of Banderas shoreline from Bucerias to Mismaloya will captivate you while you listen to the waves lapping against the shore. Under a large airy palapa there is a 30 foot curved wooden bar with an emphasis on specialty Tequilas and European spirits and a fantastic wine collection. Sandzibar has a wine cellar that is temperature controlled and stocked with over 1200 carefully selected bottles as wine is one of Chef Bernard’s passions.

Sandzibar adjoins the spectacular Alamar Beach Club. As well as being the restaurant for Alamar, it is also independent from the beach club and therefore open to the public.
