Celebrated my daughter's 10th birthday at Pollo Bollo and we all had a blast! Great BBQ chicken and delicious flan!

Only place open on Sunday night for dinner! I got pollo and it was pretty filling. They also served traditional Mexican fare and the boys enjoyed quesadillas.

We arrived around 9:00, just ahead of the crowd. We were waited on and served our food promptly. There seemed to be only one waiter, whose attention we couldn't get again later to get our check. None-the-less, the food (guacamolé, fajita combo and fish filet) was very good, portions large and prices moderate.

This is our second time that we visited Pollo Bello and again, it was delicious! The food was so good, very big portions!!! The margaritas were delicious as. We really enjoy the atmosphere...right along a pathway, surrounded by beautiful colors and flowers! This is a must try when you're in the village!

Pollo Bollo has a great space, good bar, and very friendly and hard-working staff. We have been to Yelapa twice and understand that dining-out options are limited and one of the things that make Yelapa so charming. However... each time we've been to Pollo Bollo, the wait time is really long. Waiting to get a table is 20-30 minutes at... More

We went here on January 1st. Possibly because it was a Sunday or that it was New Year's Day, but only two restaurants were open. We chose to go here and it was packed. If you are patient and polite, you will have a wonderful evening. All the servers and kitchen were working very hard. Some suggestions: 1. Show up... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and the place was just hopping. Every table was full, a few parties were waiting, and there was a constant stream of people coming in to get takeout orders. Kitchen staff had their heads down and they were working at full speed. We were hoping to have a drink while we waited, and... More

I was here in March 2016. I had heard of this place on my several trips to Yelapa but never got around to it. Boy was I happy when I did! Food was excellent quality and great flavors and the portions were large enough for a second light meal. Service was also excellent; I felt very well attended and I... More

Pollo Bollo was the only restaurant open when we visited off season. It has a festive atmosphere with twinkly lights and candles, bustling with activity. I had fajitas, which were nicely seasoned. BF had the pescado veracruz-- fish filet with a somewhat zingy tomato sauce with onions and peppers. I needed a break from cerveza so ordered the sangria, which... More
