Very good place to eat, with Lake view, service is a little slow, but overall it is a good place to eat sea food.

With a location right on the malecón where the Chapala sigh is, you're guaranteed great views and people watching opportunities! The molcajetes are delicious and enough for two (depending on your appetite). Service is usually good and live music is a plus!

Great table-side guacamole and salsa, made to order as you like it. Perfect sunset views, and right next to the pier and CHAPALA sculpture. Across the street from the church, this is one of the nicest locations on the malecon.

It was on but really don't think I'm going to return. I had a Rib Eye steak and it was a little tough. It tastes ok but a little below average. My biggest complaint is their Handicap access. It's very steep and dangerous. It's all I could do to push my mother up the ramp and coming back down was... More

Great view of Lake Chapala. The waiters were friendly and efficient. The waiter made fresh guacamole at our table & asked how we wanted it prepared (several options.)
