Margs were the worst we've had in Mexico in 2 weeks. Shrimp tacos were deep fried and ended up going back. Avoid Angelina's, and yelapa in general.

This place had great drinks, smoothies and delicious tacos. Just thinking about it brings back the taste of mango smoothie and fish taco and I want to go back, lie in a lounge chair and relax by the beach. Laid back, low key, friendly service. I had lunch, dinner and drinks here.

We enjoyed several afternoons at Angelina's. The food and drinks were delicious. The coconut shrimp and fish tacos were top notch.

Getting there is half the fun. Fantastic fish tacos, great food and cold drinks in this little piece of paradise. Great setting where you can kick back and relax as well as discover the village and hike to the falls. A little village of 800 where there are no cars.

We ate dinner here three times during our 2 week stay in Yelapa. The ambience is great with wood furniture on the beach, the margaritas delicious, and we enjoyed the fish and shrimp tacos and enchiladas. Stays open later than most of the other beachfront restaurants, which we really appreciated on the first night we arrived.

What a great place Yelapa is. Angelina's is a fabulous place to chill with a cold drink and savour one of their fantastic fish tacos. The setting is just awesome, if you venture to Yelapa, put Angelina's on your list. As you get out of the water taxi, it is on the left side of the beach.

We visited Angelina's a couple of times while staying in Yelapa. One time for dinner and the other for lunch. I ordered fish tacos both times, some of the best I have ever had, something pickled in the slaw that gave it great flavor. For dinner my wife had Mahi Mahi, which she found average, for lunch she had bean... More

Great view, ocean side, amazing food, but the service is a bit slow! Still, it's the place I ate at the most often and it did seem to draw the most crowd. Very helpful staff and clean washrooms for the standards in the area.

took the water taxi to Yelapa and visited this restaurant on the beach. Had a few beers and the calamari. The calamari was so big but not too many. pretty reasonable too. Good service at the beach!
