We followed Rob's suggestion (from the Hotel QQ) and for dinner went to Beer Garden (Av. Madero 200 a malecon, Chapala, Jal., tel. 376-765-3656). It had a beautiful view of the lake and the sunset. The food was good but the servers were not attentive and were annoying. We shared everything as usual. We started with “Tradicional ‘Caldo Michi’" described as "our ancestors recipe of the whole catfish in broth” (M$109). There was a whole catfish in a delicious broth with some vegetables in it too. It took a very long time for it to arrive. In the meantime we had totopos and salsa to keep us from starving. Our next dish was the local “Malcajetes” (M$159) mounted on a volcanic hot stone with roasted nopales and spring onion with arrachera, chicken and shrimp, sweet pepper, tomato and sliced onion with lots of cheese. It was quite a dish. We had one India Negro (M$26). A10% tip was automatically added. The meal cost M$333 (exchange rate M$13.10 = US$1). We would recommend you try this restaurant.

Went with a friend from Canada and had fun drinking margaritas and people watching...It is very near the Malecon on Lake Chapala...

We often stop there on Sundays after a walk along the male con and through the market. Good service, great view, and pretty good food.

The view of the lake is unbeatable and often the restaurant has live music. Usually every weekend night and holidays. We have only had their buffet brunch which had a wide variety but had been on the steam table too long. Some of the "hot" dishes were just lukewarm. Service varies depending on the waiter that you get. We often go for drinks and botanas (appetizers) as the view is spectacular.

Good spot to sit down for a drink or such and maybe a snack and enjoy the armosphere around the Malecon and Chapala. Food average, and drinks good. It will return and think it makes for a relaxing place to rest and enjoy people watching.
