One of the best on las gates

Family run, food is always fresh and tasty. Go fishing with Temo and have your catch prepared at the restaurant. My favorite is the ceviche and fish in white wine sauce.

The restaurant is placed on Las Gatas Beach and you can only reach the restaurant by boat (or by a long walk along the beach). You can sit with the feet in the sand and enjoy either a nice lunch, a cold beer, a big cocktail or you could go for dinner. Just talk to Chai or some of the... More

My husband had their grilled octopus and it was love at first bite for him too. They have a large kitchen that is visible to the public and I went in and took pictures... More

Each year we travel from Vancouver to Ixtapa for a week and our vacation is not complete without a visit to Chez Arnoldos on Las Gatas beach for a day of sun and snorkelling. We are always well cared for at Arnoldos by Chai and we love spending the day there with some cervezas and perhaps even a Coco Loco.... More

It was so great that we went twice in one week! Chez Arnoldo's is towards the beginning of Las Gatas. Mahi Poki is a must order. Just steps away from the water, for snorkeling or just cooling off.
