We came for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and the place was almost empty. The lake is almost empty as well because of the dry season. The place looks good and the food was good. Not much focus on sanitation on premises or the restaurant....Would probably not go backMore

There was a beautiful view of a Lilly pond, storks were flying by, and children were allowed to fish in the pond. I give this restaurant a poor review because it gave me food poisoning.

We came here for lunch before touring Guachimontes, not after like most people. As such, we were one of two tables in the large dining area. As vegetarians, there was precious little for us to eat, but I wanted the lakeside dining. Unfortunately, the lake...is being choked by water lettuce and water hyacinth, so it appeared we were seated next to a field rather than a body of water. Still enjoyable and peaceful watching the various birds. Other plusses were the professional table service and the lemonade, which was outstanding. Really generic Muzak was playing. Given what we saw for eating places in town, and the flyer a tout handed us for a next-door competitor, this place is probably your best bet, with a fairly extensive menu. The food we had, admittedly limited, was forgettable. Go for the atmosphere (if you don't mind Muzak).More

For me, It is the best of the area but that does not mean that it is high scale. Meals are of standard quality. The actual restaurant needs a make over urgently. Prices are fair according to the place, taste and quality. Service is also...good.More

We were astounded by the number of beautiful birds that seemed to love basking in the sun. The service was great. It is a huge restaurant, and fully electronic. Tablets that the wait staff use, send the orders to the kitchen.

Great service overall. The views of the lake from the restaurant were super. So relaxing to look at the Lilly pads, birds, and the water. Restaurant was clean. Food was served promptly. We enjoyed the shrimp ceviche and frog legs along with the shrimp juice...as an appetizer. It was the middle of the afternoon and not busy. You can make a nice memory by coming here.More

We stopped after our Guachimontones tour. This was the highlight of the 8 hour round trip! We ordered a steak and the octopus. Service was excellent but the environment and outdoor seating was amazing!

We had lunch there after a day at The Teuchitlan Pyramids.. What a lovely place to end a perfect day. We shared a chicken breast Molcajete Bowl..OMG..nothing fancy..but the flavours..The Chicken was almost the star of the dish..if it had not been for the sauce..I...would have been satisfied just to have a bowl of that.. I do not think we have ever had such moist tender chicken breast, anywhere.. The only vegetables in the dish..where a leaf of cactus, onion bulb & a small yellow pepper..the rest was chicken, a small slab of soft cheese & the sauce..Simple & deliciousMore

My experience with this restaurant was not great. On the one hand, the dishes were very tasty and my party enjoyed them. We had the shrimp ceviche, shrimp Zarandeado, salmon, fillet Al Mojo de Ajo and steak arrachera. All were well-prepared and fresh. The restaurant...is also located right next to the lake so the views are nice. The problem with this place was the terrible service. We had to make several requests to get missing silverware, the servers kept forgetting other requests, and two of us didn't receive our meals until 20 minutes after my two other companions received theirs, which was awkward and not satisfactorily explained by the server. Overall, the frustrating service negated our enjoyment of the food, and we wouldn't return particularly because there are a number of other seafood restaurants on the same street.More
