We were really tired waiting for... More

This restaurant is set on beautiful Chacala beach and is one on many beach front eateries which all look about the same. The menu is mostly seafood with only a couple of non seafood choices. The food is slightly above average but nothing all that memorable. The beer was cold and the drinks were good. The problem was the service.... More

A lovely setting right on the beach. We ate here several times. The salad is excellent. The desserts are really good. Don't forget to stop for a margarita. They provide lounge chairs, an umbrella and an awesome view. The service is slow so you can just relax and enjoy. On Saturday nights they have a live band.

Beach front location, adjacent to Saturday market with organic veggies, trinkets, and Mexican blankets. Decent food - slow service possibly due to another function in which the restaurant was involved. More expensive than several other Chacala options. Great chai lattes in the morning!

We had their coffee Mocha and a banana cake. Both were very good and we would go back again. There is a large room that has all sorts of toys for kids to play with and then a another large area that is for dining that is on the sand and is covered. Excellent views and good service.

Another one of those attractive places on the Chacala beach and is open until relatively late. However, their food is the same but they charge substantially higher prices and their service is slow and sometimes annoying. Go for the only real espresso in town.

The setting of Chac Mool on the beach was lovely and added to the relaxing ambiance. The food was good and the service excellent; however, there were numerous children running around and even throwing sand (!). A good place to go if you have children, but not great for a couple wanting a quiet dinner.

Visit to the village with lunch at Chac Mool. Nice setting on the beach, food was good, service a little slow which was mentioned on the menu. Relaxing and enjoyable as we watched life pass by on the beach.

I dined at this restaurant several times in November. The service was absolutely wonderful very gracious with great suggestions and helpful all the time. The food was absolutely fantastic every single time from the breakfasts to the amazing dinners with fresh sashimi or grilled fish. I highly recommend you try this restaurant if you enjoy beach dining in Mexico at... More
