“Best on Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

A beautiful and relaxing spot, with chaises, tables and chairs in the shade, hammocks, a swing and plenty of room to laze away an afternoon. Open for breakfast and lunch offering a wide range of tasty options including vegetarian dishes. I'm partial to the fish tacos which include a healthy dose of salad greens at a very reasonable price. The shrimp agua-chile is excellent. Someday I'll get there in time for breakfast. Dependably open year round. Friendly atmosphere.

“Fresh seafood, of course.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

Chartered a boat for the day and stopped here for an hour or two.

In the center of the beach at Yelapa (hidden gem), sits this restaurant and bar. The menu is not extensive, but the freshness and quality of the seafood is great. Fried calamari was fresh and soft (not overcooked). The real value was an off=menu special called "Elena's Bowl" with rice, broth, and several choices of meat or seafood (including fish, shrimp, octopus, etc. $85 MXN. I had them make me a bowl with a little of everything.

One waitress, was from Sweden, very friendly and helpful. The beach was not crowded.

“Beach bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

Located right on the tourist side of the beach in Yelapa, this place is located in a row of beach bars. You can sit in a lounge chair and order food and drinks which is way fun. Too bad the staff is rude. Way not fun. We avoided this place after two bad experiences. There are too many other places with great food AND service to waste time here.

“Angelina's is heavenly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

My husband and I were in Yelapa for a few days, on Sunday looking for a place to have lunch. Three places that advertise Sunday hour were not open - I was getting hungry and cranky by the time we decided to go down to the beach, where something was bound to be open. Happily, we settled on Angelina's - Mexican food with a wink: the fabulous guacamole (don't even bother with the chips) had grated Reggiano cheese on top and the tortillas have some secret seasoning that tastes a bit like sun-dried tomato.

I highly recommend the shrimp quesadillas; my husband recommends the margaritas! Service was very good.
