Whether it be for something simple like Coronas and nachos or just ice creams - the hospitality of the owners is top notch!! Such a welcome and warm, friendly attention given to patrons that makes this spot our first port o' call when on our...annual visit!!!More

Great food and great service! Mexican food at its best! We stop on our way to Lugano. Nice sandy beach. Great views from the lake.

The little beach was ideal for my grandfatherly duties, when staying in San Nazzaro. Entrance is free and there is a little Mexican-run Snack-Bar, which besides their food and drinks offers all kind of toys to use in the water or on land, like table-tennis...or table-football. A 2m-diving-board is available, also a bathing-raft. The whole area, which is half lawn, half sand is pretty small and gets very crowded in summer. There are tables, ombrellas, a few sunbeds. The background music has the whole range from Latin to German 'Schlager'. Food is Mexican-influenced, but there are also Panini, Pizza, Hot Dog, American Toast or Ice Cream available. More interesting are their Mexican dishes like: Pizza with Cochinita Pibil (achiote-roasted pork), then Jalapeños stuffed with Cheese or Nachos with Guacamole. The very friendly and multilingual people, who are running this place, also offer 4 kind of Mexican Beers, most popular being the Corona for 5 CHF. They also have open wine - red or white: the 1dl-glass goes by 3.50 CHF, the halfliter bottle for 17 CHF. The view across the lake is beautiful and this is what I enjoyed most, when drinking my Corona-beer and watching my Caifornian grandchildren play for hours in the water. Since there is a shipping pier next to the mini-lido and the place for swimmers very limited, I used to go for my daily swims to a half-deserted pebble beach about 500m south from here.More

just great, we stop here for drinks and we end up celebrating the birthday of one of my friends!. The owners are awesome people, sang with us rancheras and we danced limbo, very relaxed atmosphere and good attention. The place is right in front of...the lake. Be sure you stop to get a cold beer and Pizzas they are good!More
