“Great restaurant with reliably good food”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

My husband hates to eat out but when I say, "Let's go out to El Ancla", he always agrees. All the food on the menu is good. I particularly like their burgers, the fish and chips and their lamb arrachera. They also have great fettuccini with shrimp or chicken. The service is good, the prices are right and we always have a great time there. They are located in West Ajijic, just past the Pemex station and the Oxo on the Lakeside of the highway.

“Excellent every time”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Just returned from the area, in 17 days vacation we visited El Ancla about 5 times. Burgers are a must, fettuccini mix and shrimp/mahi kabobs all very excellent. The staff is friendly, casual comfortable atmosphere. So many regulars you feel at home. Hello to Eric, Adrienne, and Marianna

“Mmmmm good.”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Have tried several meals and have never been disappointed. The ambiance is comfortable , the entire staff is pleasant and efficient. The portions are satisfying and very tasty. We always seem to agree on El Ancla when dining out as a couple or a group.
