When we arrived for dinner, it was on the early side and the place looked deserted. Someone called to us from across the road--are you looking to eat? have drinks? We said yes and he said he'd call the chef. This was the owner and the chef was his wife. (Though someone else came to help out a bit later when others started to arrive.)
It's off the beaten path, but this place has a nice atmosphere and the owner was very interesting--I enjoyed speaking a mix of English and Spanish with him. They've been running this place for a long long time and seem to have a very good attitude about life. But on to the food...
As a vegetarian, my options had been limited in Yelapa, so I thought I could just ask the owner what they could make that was vegetarian. He asked me if I ate cheese and if there was anything else I didn't like. I said yes and no. He said, OK, we'll make you something good. Which they did! It's been a month and I honestly can't remember what it was--something with a tortilla, beans, rice, cheese, and a bunch of vegetables. My wife had a shrimp dish and thought it was good. And we had a couple margaritas which were also very nice.
Just an overall fine place to go if you are either in the neighborhood or feel like a long walk from "downtown".
