“Pleasant surprise at the end of the road”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Quaint and low key place. Nearly deserted when we were there, off season and relatively inclement weather, cool and quite windy. From what I know of this place the conditions were likely unusual. Fabulous scenery. My wife had a half a grilled snapper that was very fresh and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Fresh made chips and salsa fresca were brought out prior to our meal. Kitchen isn’t fast by any means but cervezas were cheap enough and we certainly weren’t in any rush. Love the large palapas style building. A bit off the beaten track and pretty rustic. If you want five star dining and a snooty waiter, this is not your place. Our server was good, even though his English was barely passable. To be expected if you’re in an out-of-the-way kind of place in Mexico, doesn’t bother me in the least. The menu has two sides, one in Spanish and the other in English – helpful. If you find yourself here, you’ve probably come to see the famous Tecolote beach and got hungry while you were there. The whole experience was relaxing and a nice way to spend some time near the beach and watch the waves roll in. You could do worse than this perfectly acceptable slice of semi-rural Mexico.

“FUNKY Tecelote”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Pretty modest place on this great beach that more than makes up for its meager decor with VERY friendly service and hospitality and good food. Fun place to go and meet other travelers and pick up spme tips on what they have learned and enjoyed in the area

“Nice place to relax at the beach”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Very laid back beach side bar. Great ceviche and margarita's. Sitting there watching the waves come in while sitting in the sun or under their umbrellas is a great way to spend the afternoon. There's skido or kayak rentals near by too.

“A MUST!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

El Tecolate is a place I take as many visitors to as possible. I love this place....it is truly a beach restaurant on the sand that serves the greatest drinks and the best red snapper (Huachanango) I've ever had. I crave it when I haven't had it in a while. I love watching the kids play on the beach, families enjoying themselves, and the shell collecting is pretty amazing. I will never forget the time I saw one of the circus families who come through town on the beach with their baby tigers!
Love this place!
