We have enjoyed Marcela's often and enjoy many of the dishes there. Taco Salads are always a value deal and are full of your choice of meat filling. It is a staple that always hits the spot. Marcela's is a popular dining spot for locals and visitors alike and it is easy to see why.

Not the best Mexican food I've had but it was not too bad. I had a cod dish with a yummy fruity salsa. There just wasn't enough of it. The piece of fish was literally about 1 inch by 1 inch. I had to search for it under the salsa.

Got the fish tacos and horchata for lunch. Both were great. Everything was very fresh and the service was good. Will definitely come back when I am in town.

The dinner was good but our credit card bill was $2 over the dinner bill. Possibly a mistake or not?

This is our "go-to" spot for a quick dinner. Every meal starts with chips and salsa....chips tonight were nice and warm. Two salsa selections...a red one that is a little warm and a green one that is cool and really tasty. I ordered Taco al Carbon this evening with steak as the meat. Came with rice, refried beans, lettuce and... More

We were lucky enough to get a table on Halloween evening when the whole town does trick or treat on the main street! Margaritas were awesome...the Marcela is a knock out for a light weight. In spite of the crowd service was quick and food came to the table hot in almost no time. We both felt like the sauces... More

We sat at the bar enjoyed the service who actually seemed happy to see us. Ordered one too many drinks. And shared very good food. Highly recommended.

Though our meals were fine we were expecting something quite different than we got. This is because the sign out front says "Authentic Mexica Food". Again our meals and service were fine but truth be told, everything was about as American Style Mexican as I've had anywhere. The picture is of Jalapeño Lemonade.

We had group of 11 and service was great as well as food. Atmosphere was friendly. Portions are large and recommend sharing if not a big eater.

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.
