We tried to eat there at 6:30 on a Saturday nite. There were 4 other tables seated. After we sat down- it took 20 minutes to get menus- one waiter was sweeping the floor- 3 others ignored us completely. The waiter sweeping the floor finally came over - but told us to give him our drink order now as he had “other things to do”- we declined as we were not quite ready- no one ever came back- after another 20 minutes we left
-had a lovely meal at las brisas with good service
Our friends who stayed said it took an hour to get their food.

Unfortunately, we had a hard time getting served here. We waited a half hour to get a waiter and had trouble getting their attention to get questions answered, second beers, and food even though I speak Spanish and they have great English. I don't know if it was just a bad night or a typical since we didn't go back. The food was good but not better than other restaurants in Chacala.

Hi thank you for your comments,we where short of staff and very busy, we are a slow food restaurant since we prepare all from fresh and when is busy it’s a long waiting.

We will work on fixing this problem.

Thank you and hope next time you have a different experience and write something more positive.

I ate at Chac Mool for dinner with my husband, we got one order of fish tacos and one order of shrimp tacos. As a returning visitor to Chacalla, I have eaten there a few times in the past years when the food and service had much better quality. The tacos were small and only had minimal protein inside, our service was also very slow. We almost left after not being helped for more than 30 minutes. The pizza here looked pretty good, but I would recommend surfer pizza across the street for pizza.

Its menu is far more Gringo than the other places in Chacala. The coffee is good, food is all right. It just isn't anything special at all though.

Thank you for your comments, we try to provide a good time by the beach, our menu it’s Mexican with some twist and we do focus on Mexican food.

Fish al pastor, al mango, tortilla soup, chilaquiles.
And lots of healthy options.

We would like to ask you to come and try our own creative dishes next time.

Enjoy chacala

I went here a few times during my visit to Chacala and would highly recommend a visit or two! Great location with plenty of tables on the beach and amazing Margaritas. The food was also great - I particularly enjoyed the Tuna Sashimi and the Mahi Mahi al Mango - both delicious.
