Best cappuccino and Ensenada de pollo ever! You will not be disappointed! Wish I had more time to take a cooking class from Jane!

I am a sailor, and after four days at sea I landed on the docks in front of Juanita's. I was exhausted to the point of being barely able to stand. We dragged ourselves to Juanita's and I had a Sheila salad (lettuce, spinach, chicken salad, goat cheese, apple, pecan, creamy dressing, 85 pesos) that brought me back to life.... More

Very close to La Isla at the marina so this was a nice break for us. First dinner I was not feeling well so could not enjoy it but my wife very much liked her plates. We returned for a breakfast and it was also very nicely prepared, fresh and plentiful. We heard many good reviews from other guests at... More

Very sad to say that this was a disappointing restaurant. Menu was not interesting for breakfast, only standard fare. After all the rave reviews, just disappointed. Prices were a bit higher than other places and we had heard so much more about it. food was just fair as well. pancakes and eggs we could have gotten anywhere. Latte was small... More

We actually went for breakfast at Juanita's after taking the cooking class 'Chili's and Chocolate' earlier in the week offered here by Jane, see separate review). It is literally a couple of table inside and a few tables out on the patio of the Marina Chahue. Very quaint and small. Tastefully decorated - very warm and inviting. I tried the... More

The café is in a lovely location by the marina with a view of the mountains and ocean. Our sandwiches were delicious with very reasonable prices. As well, the outdoor dining area is pleasant and comfortable. Our only complaint was the waitress. We were the only ones in the restaurant yet we had to continually go inside to ask for... More

Very popular restaurant in the Marina Chahue. Good location with limited seating, reservations recommended. Dined with another couple , coconut shrimp with rice and a local sail fish (marlin). Meal was just ok did not live up to the good reviews. Jane the owner was on hand and provided excellent service and a complementary shot of mescal.

Went with spouse and 2 kids (ages 2 and 6). Food was excellent and great service! Good vegetarian options. Owner was very friendly and even entertained the kids with balloons and art supplies so my wife and I could finish our meal. Location isn't ideal (located in a Marina between the resorts and the town). Saw a review complaining about... More
