Excellent beach restaurant located in a slice of Paradise!

Chac Mool is perfectly located in the centre of Chacala right next to the town square, and is also on the best part of the beach. We had breakfast, lunch and supper there every day for two weeks. My partner and my friend who accompanied me both have a restricted diet, yet found the menu had a lot... read more

Chac Mool Restaurant is a great restaurant to visit any time of day. It is located in Chacala, which is a very small fishing village located about 65 miles north of Puerta Vallarta. The food is very good and reasonably priced. It is a beach restaurant with lots of covered, outdoor tables. One can have a meal or drink while... More

We stopped by on the way to our friends place from Puerto Vallarta. We had lunch under a palapa on the beach. Excellent shrimp and fish tacos. The jicama tortilla was a great surprise.

We chose this place for some of the previous reviews but had an unpleasent experience. We sat for 20 mins before we could order. We got drinks menus after 30 or more. Finally we got food for 3 people more than 45 mins after we ordered, and we were 6 in our party. We were starving by then and shared... More

This place is great. Has lounge chairs right on the uncrowded beach, cover for escaping the sun, and great pizzas and ceviche for more than reasonable prices.

My wife and I visited from Boulder CO, a fast growing foodie town. Chac Mool rivals anything back at home and with a coffee shop that puts Starbucks to shame. The food is phenomenal, gourmet, and in most cases comes from their own organic farm. Service is great, food comes out quickly and most the staff are fluent in english.... More

We had a pretty disappointing breakfast here. Service was incredibly slow and our orders weren't correct. The food was average at best and adding the 30 minute wait for drinks and a 50 minute wait time for scrambled eggs didn't help matters. Perhaps we hit them on an off day, but I won't soon be returning for an overpriced 2... More

Nothing is speedy at this restaurant, but you are at the beach and should expect slow food! Relax and enjoy the view. Staff are very friendly and welcoming - probably one of the least high pressure beach spots we have ever had the pleasure of sitting at. The food is good and plentiful - give it a try and you...

Two years running, we have enjoyed the friendly, zippy feel of this beachside restaurant. We have danced to live music on the sand, watched the sea, loved the welcome at this sweet spot.
