Excellent Mexican food. the best green tomatillo with cilantro dipping salsa that I've ever had. I'm going to copy cat it to serve at home. If you have to wait...it is well worth it.

Great - service, food and drinks! My husband and I split an excellent order of chicken fajitas -fresh veggies with just the right amount of spice. I would also recommend the blackberry margarita.

We have stayed in Chelan for 1 week and went three times to the restaurant. Authentic Mexican Food which was excellent. Delicious frozen Margarita and great value for money. Its a casual dinning with a very friendly service. Perfect for vacation with family and friends.

After days of camp food (burgers, hot dogs, ribs), the family was craving Mexican. Marcela's Cocina was perfect. Tasty, fresh food with strong, fruity margaritas. It was crowded but we saw several families ordering to go, while others sat outside on the bench just out...More

New restaurant in downtown Lake Chelan. great service excellent food. We had the steak and chicken fajitas - very fresh and well prepared. Sat at the brand bartender was super friendly and nice. Known for best margaritas in town. Interesting flavors such as hibiscus or tamarind. Top shelf margarita was the right mix of tart and sweet.
