Only place open on Sunday night for dinner! I got pollo and it was pretty filling. They also served traditional Mexican fare and the boys enjoyed quesadillas.

We arrived around 9:00, just ahead of the crowd. We were waited on and served our food promptly. There seemed to be only one waiter, whose attention we couldn't get again later to get our check. None-the-less, the food (guacamolé, fajita combo and fish filet) was very good, portions large and prices moderate.

This is our second time that we visited Pollo Bello and again, it was delicious! The food was so good, very big portions!!! The margaritas were delicious as. We really enjoy the atmosphere...right along a pathway, surrounded by beautiful colors and flowers! This is a must try when you're in the village!

Pollo Bollo has a great space, good bar, and very friendly and hard-working staff. We have been to Yelapa twice and understand that dining-out options are limited and one of the things that make Yelapa so charming.

However... each time we've been to Pollo Bollo, the wait time is really long. Waiting to get a table is 20-30 minutes at times. When seated, getting a drink takes 15-20 minutes. Dinner? Well it can take 45 -60 minutes. To me, dinners like bbq chicken, grilled shrimp, and such with sides like mashed potatoes, beans, and rice shouldn't take up to an hour to serve. It seems like everything is cooked to order and everyone is watching the clock wondering why the long wait. I felt badly for families with children who after 45 minutes were starting to struggle with keeping their children occupied. Like I said, the food is good, and the staff works hard, but what I think they need to do is reduce their menu items and streamline their kitchen in order to reduce the wait times.
