You say “when” on the tequila pour for your margarita at Si Señor
It’s always fun to venture off the resort grounds and eat at a great local restaurant. A few years ago I asked Carl Emberson, the General Manager of the St. Regis Punta Mita, for a restaurant recommendation in the sleepy town of Punta Mita, he insisted we try Si Señor. I’ve been recommending the restaurant to friends ever since.
The signage isn’t fancy
The colorful entrance to Si Señor
Si Señor is funky, atmospheric and all about the fresh fish. If you go, have your camera ready because the whole restaurant has a fun, show-like atmosphere and delicious Mexican cuisine and very strong margaritas.

From the giant clam shell at the hostess desk to the Mexican serapes strung between palm trees to provide diners shade from the sun, the restaurant feels like fun from the moment you enter.

The menu at Si Señor
While fresh seafood is the standout here, Si Señor does great with all the traditional Mexican specialties. The guacamole is made table side and the queso fundido is pure cheesy goodness.

Be sure to ask what the catch of the day is, because that is when a meal at Si Señor gets really fun.
