Very good and affordable spot for lunch. I had the shrimp, scallop, and fish tacos which were great. There is also a very good salsa bar for topping off the tacos.

Always fresh, great service, best for breakfast and lunch in Los Barriles, Parking can be tough , best to park up the street and walk for a great meal. The Salsa Bar is to die for and the daily specials keep you coming back.

Sadly, not that I know of. However, the prices are cheap no matter when.

By US standards, cheap. By Mexico standards, moderate. My wife and I eat lunch for under $15 combined (and often under $10) including drinks.

I don't see reviews for any of Los Barriles' many restaurants or the local attractions for that matter. I live here and would be glad to provide more information about this great little town if you are interested.
