Great table-side guacamole and salsa, made to order as you like it. Perfect sunset views, and right next to the pier and CHAPALA sculpture. Across the street from the church, this is one of the nicest locations on the malecon.

We stopped for a drink and appetizers after a walk. We have some shrimp ceviche and fish tacos; the ceviche was good the tacos ok. The variety of beers was to limited to be call the beer garden. We come back.

It was on but really don't think I'm going to return. I had a Rib Eye steak and it was a little tough. It tastes ok but a little below average. My biggest complaint is their Handicap access. It's very steep and dangerous. It's all I could do to push my mother up the ramp and coming back down was... More

Great view of Lake Chapala. The waiters were friendly and efficient. The waiter made fresh guacamole at our table & asked how we wanted it prepared (several options.)

Lovely views from the Chapala Malecon. Sub par food but an awesome place to have a drink, chat with friends and enjoy the beautiful view.

The food was pretty mediocre. The view is great and the Pina colada was great. I ordered the enchiladas mixta and my bf ordered a steak. Both lacked flavor. The staff was not the friendliest. On the plus there is wifi!

At the end of the Malecon on the south shore of Lake Chapala, this open-air restaurant is good to relax and enjoy the view of the lake. One of the best burgers in all of Lakeside
