We ate here several times and each time were impressed. Juan was so great, he treated us like family. The guacamole is delicious, and the shrimp ceviche is the best in town. Highly recommended!

Delightful restaurant for a delicious dinner. The chips/salsa/guacamole starter was SO much better than anything we've had in the states. There was plenty of very tasty food and drink. Sorry, no kids menu with grilled cheese and chicken fingers - just a menu full of very good Mexican food. In case you no hablo espanol, the friendly waiter spoke decent... More

I have to agree with the others. The owner was so nice that I wish I could give it more stars but the food was just OK. It was the only meal we didn't enjoy in Yelapa. The drinks we good though and we had our first taste of Raicilla.

We ate here one night in Yelapa and it was very good. The second night they had a band so we went for drinks. It was a fun atmosphere, we enjoyed it very much.

Staff was kind & fun. Unfortunately, our meals on two separate visits were poor. Trouble in the kitchen, consequently our food was "almost" warm. 4 of us (there was 6 in our party) were done eating for 10 minutes before the remaining 2 got their meals. The shrimp Diablo was more like cocktail sauce poured over shrimp. Too many other... More

We went fishing with Fernando (Mira mar excursions) and we caught 3 mahi mahi. He asked Gloria's to prepare a meal for us. Fernando said he trusted they would prepare us a great meal. The food was fabulous the best meal we had all week. They are recommended by many people around town.

The grilled fish was the best thing we had so if you decide to try Gloria's order that. Chile relleno, shrimp diavola ( not remotely spicy) and pollo Catalina were edible but marginal. Too many better places like Los Abuelos and Pollo Bollo to ever go back.

Great margharitas and mezcal. Lovely people. TV screens not too intrusive. Very family friendly. Nice view of stream.

We had a beer at Gloria's during the playoffs. This is the only Sports Bar in Yelapa, but they seem clueless about the concept. They offered very few appetizers (terrible nachos) and full (boring) meals. The people who ordered food were disappointed. However, it is a beautiful outdoor place to watch a game. The owners just need to get a... More

We showed up here early in the morning to watch a soccer match on their TVs and enjoy some drinks. Awesome place to catch the game and have a beer or two or three:)
