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... More

We went here on January 1st. Possibly because it was a Sunday or that it was New Year's Day, but only two restaurants were open. We chose to go here and it was packed. If you are patient and polite, you will have a wonderful evening. All the servers and kitchen were working very hard. Some suggestions: 1. Show up... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and the place was just hopping. Every table was full, a few parties were waiting, and there was a constant stream of people coming in to get takeout orders. Kitchen staff had their heads down and they were working at full speed. We were hoping to have a drink while we waited, and... More

I was here in March 2016. I had heard of this place on my several trips to Yelapa but never got around to it. Boy was I happy when I did! Food was excellent quality and great flavors and the portions were large enough for a second light meal. Service was also excellent; I felt very well attended and I... More

Pollo Bollo was the only restaurant open when we visited off season. It has a festive atmosphere with twinkly lights and candles, bustling with activity. I had fajitas, which were nicely seasoned. BF had the pescado veracruz-- fish filet with a somewhat zingy tomato sauce with onions and peppers. I needed a break from cerveza so ordered the sangria, which... More

Nice restaurant in town. There were only two restaurants open for dinner while we were there. Good food but wish they served tacos.

This restaurant was a lot of fun! The staff were very nice, connected with locals and other travellers and lastly, had a great dinner with my husband and friends. Not only was the dinner flavorful, the portions were huge! Definitely filled us up and the price was right :)

I had the aracherra steak, my wife ordered the BBQ combo plate... My steak was overcooked and a bit salty. The BBQ combo had chicken and ribs. The ribs were good and the chicken was pretty good too. The meal left us both feeling a little queezy. The restaurant had a lot of flies... Not a good sign. I know... More

As I am writing these reviews I am realizing just how much great food is in Yelapa. I had eaten so much, I couldn't finish my final dinner here but it was excellent. Plates are huge. Consider sharing.

Busy restaurant and clearly popular. Can't say there was anything really wrong with our experience, but there wasn't anything really outstanding about it either. We were in Yelapa 2'weeks, and were glad to have dined here, but didn't opt to go back either.
