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:)

Gloria's has a sign outside calling themselves a sports bar. 2 TVs on the wall and a couple speakers makes them the best sports bar in Yelapa. We watched an NFL playoff game there a couple weeks ago. The audio was in Spanish but that depends on which network it's on. Some have English. I generally avoid beef in Mexico... More

The salsa was fresh and tasty but the chips were over cooked in old oil. My small dinner salad was fresh and crisp. The tortilla soup wasn't bad but it wasn't like any other tortilla soup I've had. My 15 year old son liked the grilled chicken he ordered. The service was just ok . They were one of the... More
