It's about the only restaurant open on Sun. in Yelapa. Go early to avoid the wait. We went early and there were twenty people waiting. It was mostly large groups and lots of locals. We were a party of two so we didn't have to wait long. It was pretty chaotic. After being seated our waiter never came to the table so I got up and picked up a menu. We patiently waited and he finally came around to take our drink order. The drinks sat on the bar so I had to ask the only other wait staff person, a female to get our drinks. The waiter took our order we waited about an hour for our meals to arrive. We ordered the half chicken. It came with potatoes, rice, beans and salad...a lot of food for 110 pesos. Never saw our waiter again...he was very overwhelmed. The waitress cleared our dishes and brought the bill. People seem to call in for take out orders to avoid the wait but I think that also delayed the wait time for people dining in.
A lot of the chaos could have been avoided with additional wait staff.

All of the food here was amazing. One of the best parts is you can order half orders of everything. The passion fruit margarita was also delicious. Super reasonably priced.

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.
