Very tasty Mexican food in a beautiful setting on the beach at Payette Lake. When the sun goes down the air cools rapidly, so be prepared.

The staff were friendly but the food was very average in both quality and taste. I had Enchiladas in Mole, which tasted like it was made with peanut butter. The outside deck overlooking the lake was probably the highpoint of the visit.

We just had drinks and Chips and Salsa, but I had the best Raspberry Margarita ever! Chips and Salsa excellent too and service friendly and efficient. We had a great patio table overlooking the lake. Worth a visit!

They tried to say I put it there. I had already paid the check. Not sure what the motive was. The food was poor at best. There are other really good options in town.

We were a party of 4 on Sunday October 23. We walked in and stood at the hostess stand, behind us a waiter coming out from the kitchen with an order barked at us to move. When we bunched closer to the hostess stand he barked again for us to move to his left not right, and bark again to... More

I was visiting a local resident in New Meadows Idaho when we decided to have some lunch in nearby McCall at Chapala. The restaurant was busy but not slammed and we sat on the outside patio overlooking the lake. The waitress seemed to pay us no attention and we finally had to ask for menus and drinks. Once the drinks... More

We'd heard it was pretty good. The service was good but the food was just so-so. I wouldn't go again.

I had the steak fajitas. It was very tasty and a big serving. The service was fast and polite. The view of the lake was beautiful.

Recently my husband and I spent a couple of days in McCall for a last minute getaway. Our first night in town we visited the Chapala Mexican Restaurant. Our reasons for choosing this restaurant were primarily because of the location, on the lakeshore with a nice view, and because we have visited Chapala Restaurant in Boise. Unfortunately our experience was... More
