The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort has three main restaurants: Carolina, Las Marietas and Sea Breeze. Carolina (named after Caroline Astor, the mother of St. Regis founder John Jacob Astor IV) is the property’s signature Mediterranean restaurant that offers seafood infused with the area’s native flavors. Expect dishes such as smoked tiger shrimp with housemade Greek vegetable salad, roasted hog fish with polenta and tomato, and pan-roasted saddle of lamb with chipotle dauphine potato. Savor the chic establishment at dinnertime (open Tuesday through Sunday) from the main dining area, private dining room, outdoor terrace or bar. The more casual Las Marietas welcomes you to an alfresco setting with stunning ocean views. Dine in any of the restaurant’s three beach houses (also referred to as open palapas) for breakfast and lunch (and dinner from mid-October through May) and relish plates such as the Nayar full Mexican breakfast, grouper fish tacos, fish ceviche and chili-sauce-stuffed short rib with potatoes and cotija cheese. If indoor dining is more your style but you’d still like to experience an outdoor view (there’s also outdoor seating should you change your mind), head to Sea Breeze for lunch and dinner. Order the tortilla soup, fish fillet or mahi-mahi hamburger. And if you’d like to eat while catching some rays at Areca pool, everything from sushi to panini can be brought to your private cabana or beach lounge chair.
