Many will remember the popular bar and restaurant “Jalapeños” on the Blvd, owned and operated by Carlos and Pepé Rojo, which closed about 6 years ago when they lost their lease. Carlos and Pepé are now back in the restaurant business, having taken over the bar and restaurant at the Hotel Tenisol, in Club Santiago. In addition to the same menu of Mexican and seafood dishes they offered at Jalapeños, they will also be open for breakfast, along with lunch and dinner. Plus, they have hired a Chinese chef and will soon be serving a full menu of Chinese dishes, including takeout. The restaurant is located behind the hotel in a beautiful, poolside tropical setting, with dining on both the upper and lower levels. The separate bar is poolside with swim-up service, if you care to cool off. Easiest to enter off the side street, behind the hotel.


Alma and Miguel (el Calvo) Garcia, have started a new enterprise. Over the years they were personal cooks and are now preparing a short menu for take home orders. They are very highly recommended for quality, freshness and cleanliness. It has been suggested that you take your own containers so as not to have to return theirs.

Alma speaks no English but understands it, Miguel is very able to do so.

Please phone your order in at least 2 days ahead. Phone:314-334-7784
