We had their coffee Mocha and a banana cake. Both were very good and we would go back again. There is a large room that has all sorts of toys for kids to play with and then a another large area that is for dining that is on the sand and is covered. Excellent views and good service.

Another one of those attractive places on the Chacala beach and is open until relatively late. However, their food is the same but they charge substantially higher prices and their service is slow and sometimes annoying. Go for the only real espresso in town.

The setting of Chac Mool on the beach was lovely and added to the relaxing ambiance. The food was good and the service excellent; however, there were numerous children running around and even throwing sand (!). A good place to go if you have children, but not great for a couple wanting a quiet dinner.

Visit to the village with lunch at Chac Mool. Nice setting on the beach, food was good, service a little slow which was mentioned on the menu. Relaxing and enjoyable as we watched life pass by on the beach.

Go here! They have soy milk, great cappicinos and fabulous cinnamon pancakes for kids. The flies are a bit crazy when you order sweet things and the service is a bit slow...but you need to accept you are on Mexican time! The shrimp pizza is also fantastic and you are right on the beach!!! Plus they take Visa which in... More

Staying in Sayulita for a week and decided to drive up the coast for something different. Drive was just short of one and a half hours. Drove into this small sleepy town and found chaq mool immediately. Were greeted by the friendly staff and we said we wanted to see the beach and surroundings. Were most accommodating and we were...

We were just there today. Had a veggie burrito which should have been called a starch burrito. Not only is there huge pieces of tortilla it was mostly filled with rice and potatoes with a few soggy carrots On top of that I was charged 10 pesos over menue price. It was truly disguisting. We have been there many times... More

Had two great meals in this restaurant and both were excellent with great attentive service. Superb thin crispy Italian style Pizza unlike the normal American stodge found elsewhere. fabulous burritos with not a hint of fat. Superb mango margaritas. A shame we only discovered this place at the end of our stay but will be back next year for sure.
