First time in the restaurant and had heard good things about it. My friends both had fish dishes that they said were great. Although I love to fish I don't eat it so much so tried the bbq chicken. It was quite dry but the sauce was good. the beans and rice were average. Prices were in medium range for... More

We ordered the shrimp kabobs and the barbequed chicken dinners to go and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at our hut in the jungle to eat. The food was relatively cheap as compared to other restaurants on Yelapa and it was very tasty and filling. We will definitely return to this restaurant!!

Enjoyed the ribs & chicken at PB. Would prefer less BBQ sauce but everything else was great - beans, rice, salad. Can get a beer for $2.50 and drinkable wine for 5.00. Service was outstanding. Recommend!

Last night my boyfriend and I had a delicious dinner at Pollo Bollo ~ it's one of our favorites whenever we're staying in Yelapa ~ last night, I had the breaded fish filet, served with mashed potatoes, salad, rice, beans and tortillas. I usually order a half portion, which the restaurant offers, and it's plenty of food for me!!! My... More

Had two delicious meals here and enjoyed them both. We tried the battered shrimp and the Tri-tip steak. The shrimps were super-good and came with rice and vegetables - more than enough for one and good to share. The Tri-tip steak was amazing and tender. Went back to have it again but they only have a few times a week.... More

We have stayed in Yelapa for many years now; but this was the first time we ate here. It certainly will not be the last. The bbq ribs were to die for. And, of course, you can not find greater people than those is Yelapa.

My tender, flavorful chicken was smothered with a creamy sauce so good I wished I could have a bowl on it's own as a soup course. The sides served alongside were great: beans perfectly cooked, mashed potatoes wonderfully fluffy and buttery. My eyes were bigger than my stomach and we over-ordered, but our waiter was nice enough to wrap up... More
