We had a spectacular meal with a backdrop of harbor lights, palm trees and crashing waves. This is a really special place and a shame it seems to be undiscovered. We were the only diners on a Saturday night. The food was excellent; no menus -- you get what the chef has found in the market -- and the staff... More

Chef Casiano Reyes has 3 locations in Mexico. This restaurant would definitely get at least one star if the "Michelin man" rated it. We had a multi-course meal that was as good as many we have had around the world. In addition, the setting was spectacular: an outdoor patio, under the palm trees with the sound of breaking waves from... More

Casianos is newly located at the Alamar Beach Club in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. The location is ideal for this delightful culinary experience. We were offered multiple option for seating, either in the dining room or on the beach, all with beautiful ocean views. The staff was outstanding in their service. We especially enjoyed the lobster in clam sauce and... More

We were staying in punta mita and our concierge at our hotel recommended we try the "spontaneous" concept. No menu multi course sounded great to me. From the second you arrive you feel the warm welcome. Our waiter met us at the autolobby and escorted us inside. My wife and I chose the 5 course meal. We left stuffed, barely... More

First, we had tried the old location of Casianos on our prior trip to PV. The food was spectactular but the setting was very minimal. They couldn't have made more of a dramatic change. A group of 9 of us ate there last Wednesday night. They have only been open 3 weeks and have moved to the new resort Bolongo... More

My wife and I went to Casianos our first night in La Cruz and I had one of the best meals I've ever had. We ordered the 5 course pre fixe menu for 860 pesos a person. They serve what is fresh when they go to the market so you need to make a reservation and you will never know... More

The food is brilliantly prepared and served. Easily the best food in La Cruz. The location is not the greatest but the quality is superior to anything around. On par with the very best in PV and surrounding area. They also cater. With one glass of wine and the three course meal it cost our group 1000 pesos per person,... More

We have been there 3 times and every time has been great. We do the 5 course and spend the evening there. The plates are flawless in preparation and served the same way. Going back in March and going to try their catering the fist night in so we don't have to scramble unpacking and going out to eat. Excellent!... More

Place yourself in the chef's capable hands. Your only decisions should be 3 or 5 course (we found 3 was plenty) and what wine you would like. The chef will adjust to any food allergies you have but unless there is a health reason just roll with it. Everything will be super fresh from what caught the chef's fancy that... More
