I've been visiting Chacala my entire life and one thing it always lacked was food variety. All of the beachfront restaurants basically serve the same thing with some variation in quality and service. Then Chac Mool came in and changed everything! Chac Mool features an excellent menu with meals that were carefully thought out. The presentation is fantastic and the... More

The first night we chose the coconut covered shrimp and shrimp brochetas. Delicious both. nice area and clean. The service was also very helpful. But the food is just the best. this is a... More

Excellent place to get good food, coffee and cold drinks and just relax. They have a varied menu, hammocks, a children's play area.The staff are welcoming and will let customers sit all afternoon under a palapa and watch the waves come in. The sand is soft and the waves more gentle than some other local beaches, good for swimming. Very... More

Wonderful food, excellent service and good people! I have traveled all over Mexico and this restaurant stands out from the rest. We ate at least one meal at Chac Mool everyday for a week, every dish I had was excellent. The scenery doesn't get any better, while eating breakfast one morning I watched a Humpback whale breach over thirty times... More

Nice people working here, but they seem under pressure from owners. They wear headsets, which is really off-putting for patrons. Owners seem to have a corporate mentality. But it's fairly clean, location is nice.

This restaurant is one of the main reasons we come back to Chacala almost every year. This time around we had 4 meals here and all were tasty. What stood out for me was their octopus casserole. I had always found octopus to be rubbery but theirs melted in my mouth. And the red wine sauce with chorizo and potatoes... More

Located in the resort of Chacala and right on its pristine beach this is several notches better than your average beach cafe. Food and Drink (including western cuisine and wine), loos and taking credit cards (remember, Chacala is essentially a cash only zone so if you run out of Pesos this is a great option!) Run by an Anglo-Mexican couple,... More
