A nice outdoors place for lunch, by the Chapala lake, with a wide variety of seafood. 4-cheese shrimp are very good, but a bit creamy, empanadas and octopus are also good.

A bit pricey at 420 pesos but excellent! Innovatively stuffed with fruit (yes I know it sounds odd) its 5 star class. Depending on where you are seated, it may be a bit noisy when there is music but overall a pleasant time.
