“Manguitos”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

One of my favorite lunch & dinner places in Yelapa! The food is wonderful & the margaritas are powerful! Great place to sit out on the patio, on a sunny afternoon & watch the river life go by.

“Fresh from the river”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We tried the fresh water langostine for lunch. Check my posted pics and you'll see the langostine hanging off the plate. Came with rice,beans,vegies,salad and my husband asked for fries also for 180p or less than $15. It was grilled fresh and was delicious. Nice and clean, friendly and beautiful spot along the river. A short walk from the beach or town up river.

“Up River old Favorite”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

I wish El Manguito were closer in. Owner Angelica has a long established, respected restaurant up river. From the pueblo is about a 15 minute walk to the bridge. Cross the river to the other side and turn right. A short two minute walk and you will find a laid back place with well prepared meals and cold beer. Now open for high season!

“The best Mexican food ever”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Manguitos was always open, even during the slow summer season of 2012 I was visiting Yelapa. The owners are very friendly and speak English well. They have the best chili rellenos I have ever had and you can't go wrong with anything you order.The margaritas are wonderful and very potent.

“This is Luis & Angelica”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Good basic mexican food that hits the spot. Angelica has other food at times not on the menu that is available. They do have a few specialties and recommend langostino, it is not shrimp or lobster, they get it from the river. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's about 1/4 mile hike from beach but nice way to see another part of the pueblo.
