“Great view, good service, average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Had late lunch with several of my Mexican friends for my first time in Chapala. We picked the restaurant solely based on the location as it really has a good view of the lake and Malecon.

The restaurant is quite large with plenty of covered outside spots where you can sit and watch the world go by. The service was prompt and friendly. They had a live singer in the restaurant during out meal which was nice ambience. The sun was getting close to setting by the time we finished, and it is definitely a good spot for a sunset view with a meal.

The food was decent, but if it wasn't for the view, I don't think I would go out of my way to go back. Nothing wrong with the food, it was hot, reasonably priced (for touristy area). But I have had significantly better.

“Magnificent View w/Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

This is a large open air venue with a roof and open sides. There is a large selection of food and drinks. Fresh guacamole is made right at your table and the food is good. The view of the malecon and Lake Chapala is fantastic, especially at sunset.

“Not a good place to eat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Unfortunately, because this restaurant is situated right on Lake Chapala, they do not have very good food. I have tried them several times and still have the same opinion. I live at Lake Chapala and eat out often - they are not on my list of restaurants to partronize.

“Great view of the lake and malecon and good food”

We had a lovely afternoon eating lunch with a beer and watching the Sunday afternoon tiendas along the malecon. I sketched while watching and there was no pressure for us to leave.
