Tuna Blanca: Modern Mexican cuisine by the sea

article-image

Several months ago we told you about the wonderful metamorphosis of Cafe des Artistes del Mar to Tuna Blanca. This change brought with it a wave of changes to the already splendid venue — and a renewed popularity among local residents.  Chef Thierry Blouet has designed a menu with simple plates presented with the classic gourmet style of Café des Artistes. In the words of Chef Thierry, this “is a change from the French with Mexican accents, to the Mexican with French accents… TUNA BLANCA is a dream come true in Punta Mita!”

Tuna Blanca by Café des Artistes is an absolute highlight of the culinary scenery in Punta Mita, offering a diversity of flavors, aromas and colors from Mexico, featuring organic, grilled and simply sumptuous cuisine, served seaside. The menu offers classic Mexican fare — yet with the inimitable style for which Chef Thierry and Café des Artistes is known for. Here, we offer a few of our favorites:

For starters, try their Cerviche “Tuna Blanca” the freshest of local fish served with green kalamato olives, capers, cure onions, green prickly pear, avocado creme and a corn crumble. Moving forward to the Main Course…we are wild about the Glazed Duck with Tamarind and Chipotle — served with roasted vegetables, banana and a signiture mole sauce. For a sweet finish to the evening, we suggest their Piña Colada gratin parfait with coconut, pineapple-lemon sorbet and aged rum – no need to say more!

If you have trouble deciding, opt for their 5-course tasting menu — always a treat, where you can enjoy a selection of the best of the Chef’s talents that evening. It’s also available in a vegetarian option, as well as with wine pairing.

 

When it comes to drinks, Tuna Blanca offers a variety of fine wines and liquors as well as exotic cocktails prepared with a base of tequila or mezcal. Their wine list includes an ample selection of Mexican wines, among their cellar that boasts over 300 bottles.

Tuna Blanca offers a chic, romantic, beachside dining atmosphere while serving up the best organic and locally-sourced products of the region, including fresh sea food provided by the fisherman of the Anclote beach. A visit to Punta Mita or Riviera Nayarit simply isn’t complete without savoring the dining experience of Tuna Blanca.

Tuna Blanca by Cafe des Artistes is open daily from 12pm to 5pm for Beach Club use & lunch, and from 5pm to 10:30pm for dinner.
