You've got to really impress me to get 5 stars. Now, this was no 5 star French restaurant in Manhattan, by any means. That's apples and oranges. But I just didn't expect such a good meal in a very small, unassuming, casual place like this. The dining area is upstairs and open-air, while the small kitchen is downstairs. My partner... More

We returned with friends as we enjoyed it so much before and were not disappointed. Margaritas are 2 for 1 at only $50 and good. Entrees include an appetizer (try the salmon won tons) and a salad. We enjoyed the camarones al coco and sea bass. Excellent service in espanol or English.

We drove past several mornings seeing their sign for chilaquiles and one day we finally stopped. It was toward the end of the morning service but we were met with great service and some excellent chilaquiles! Coffee was delicious and juice fresh squeezed. Looking forward to our next visit!

We went for lunch and how wonderful a setting looking south on the pastoral plane towards Lake Chapala. This modest second floor restaurant is set under a palapa. Our shy soft spoken waiter, Juan Miguel told us he was an artist and as he spoke he waived to a passing cyclist... his uncle decked in a sporting red and white... More

I arrived for a late lunch early dinner and was the only person in the restaurant. I sat upstairs and had a partial view of the lake and mountains. I started off with a margarita on the rocks, very good. I ordered calamari as an appitizer, the nutty sea bass as my entree along with a side of scalloped potatoes.... More

Delightful little palapa restaurant on the east side of Chapala. A well kept secret, this restaurant has a small but imaginative menu, caters for vegetarians and the service is excellent. Well worth a visit.

Great service and spectacular food at reasonable prices. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. If you come to Chapala, then eat one of your first meals here. You will return again before you leave the area.

We went with friends and I ordered the nutty sea bass. It was the biggest and tastiest piece of fish I ever had. Ever. And the scalloped potatoes were also so fresh and delicious. One of the best meals I ever had.
