Typical Mexican restaurant. Nothing fancy, but clean and tidy. Fabulous view of the lake makes it worthwhile. I'd go here for the view, Pueblo Lindo's for the food.

This was our second visit to this facility although we visit Chapala restaurants in Boise 3-4 times a year. The food is always very good and consistent. I really enjoy the chips salsa & beans that are gratis appetizers. Our order was promptly taken and the food was served as ordered and it was all served on hot plates. We... More

If you have a hankering for Mexican food with a view of Lake Payette, this is the place. There is reasonable free parking nearby. You are also in the heart of Old McCall, so you can stroll the area before or after dining. The wait staff was efficient and understanding, since we were visiting with an old friend and quite...

We ate on the patio with a stunning viewed the lake. There is a children's menu that was satisfactory for the grand children. We ordered the shredded beef tostada salad.

Love the chips and salsa! Strawberry margarita was delicious and my Shrimp ala Crema was very good. Location can't be beat...overlooking Payette Lake. Hubby and I have eaten here quite a few times and will continue to do so when we get a craving for Mexican Food.

Very tasty Mexican food in a beautiful setting on the beach at Payette Lake. When the sun goes down the air cools rapidly, so be prepared.

The staff were friendly but the food was very average in both quality and taste. I had Enchiladas in Mole, which tasted like it was made with peanut butter. The outside deck overlooking the lake was probably the highpoint of the visit.

We just had drinks and Chips and Salsa, but I had the best Raspberry Margarita ever! Chips and Salsa excellent too and service friendly and efficient. We had a great patio table overlooking the lake. Worth a visit!

They tried to say I put it there. I had already paid the check. Not sure what the motive was. The food was poor at best. There are other really good options in town.
