Some may and will almost certainly disagree but after having been here at Lake Chapala for 15 years, I must admit that there are no good restaurants here. Not even one. I have yet to figure this out for sure but I think it may be because most of the foreigners who move here are from the U.S. Midwest and Canada and never actually tasted any good food. in their entire lives What I found to be disconcerting is that there are also no good Mexican restaurants. around the lake. I have had better Mexican food at Lake Tahoe. No good Iranian restaurants either. Not even one U.S. Southern BBQ house. Really nice weather, though.
