This was our second visit; the food here is simply amazing. Small family hole in the wall off the beaten track but you won't regret trying it. Fresh shrimp and fish tacos, simple traditional flavours done very well. The portions are huge and if you really like a sauce the owner has no problem sharing her recipes. Highlights are the...

Chilly is an excellent, knowledgeable guide who speaks english quite well. He is passionate about the area and works as a conservationist. The hike me and my friends went on was almost 6 miles one way. Not a difficult hike but a bit much for us. We walked from the top of the mountain down to San Pancho and took... More

I can't speak to everything on the menu, but the fish tacos were exceptional. We were a little bit nervous due to the outside of the place, but the food was great. ***You will probably need to order in spanish***

Chilly Willy was recommended to us by a local. And they are the best ones to ask!! It's just a small little place off the Main Street but the fish tacos and the shrimp chili rellenos were to die for!! Can't wait to go back

Food wasn't tasty and overpriced. The general ambiance of the place is boring. I only went there once. Once was enough

I have been coming here for 10 years and I love this restaurant! The owners are born in Sayulita, a family made up of a fisherman, surfers, environmentalists and an amazing cook. Try anything on the menu but my personal fav is the shrimp chile relleno.

After surfing all morning, I'd head to Chilly's for lunch. Amazing fresh fish dishes, whether tacos or ceviche. One of those places most tourists would pass without considering, but really worth a stop.

Tacos here are simple and big! Some taco places in Sayulita try to complicate the fish taco by adding tricky batter or weird toppings - not these guys....just good food.
