Abuelo's owner/ chef Fabian is amazing. His local renown as a scuba diving hunter continues as a talented chef who turns out consistently exquisite food , mostly of mariscos and seafood but the nightly special often includes meat and poultry dishes. One of the few...More

I came over for 2 nights. My friends said do not miss this place. I've been on a quick brief holiday to Vallarta. This beats the food there. I had just the tacos but they were delish. It is a little hard to find. It's...More

Los Abuelos (the grandparents) indeed has the whole (large) family at work preparing the most delicious authentic dishes. Grandma always makes each taco to order. It is always full, but worth the usual wait of 15-20 minutes or so. You will not be disappointed here....More

It took me a few days to figure out how to get to this place, even though it was a stone's throw from where we were staying. Ate there 3 days in a row and wished for more. Such delicious food, such reasonable prices. I...More

Los Abuelos is simply one of the best in Yelapa! We went three separate times during a 9 day stay in April. Get there early or be willing to stand in line. Service may be slow when they are packed (which is often) but it...More

Fabian is a top chef. I live in New York City and the best rated Mexican Restaurant is not as good as Los Abuelos in Yelapa.

If you like fish and shrimp deep battered and fried, and salad with cloyingly sweet dressings, this place may be for you. They do have tasty blue corn tortillas which are a welcome change from the usual Yelapa fare, but this place seemed to be...More

I'm not sure. I think they are closed on Sunday and Monday. Breakfast is probably 8 or 9 am until noon.
