Service, food and cleanliness all good, although this popular spot for gringos is a little pricier than the other beach restaurants. He wanted to charge me 120 pesos for a plain grilled chicken dinner, which is 90 pesos in most other restaurants on the beach. In the end he charged me 100 pesos and I met some great people there!

My wife and I were recently on an Azamara Cruise and spent 1 day in the beautiful fishing village of Zuhatenajo. We found the restaurant by accident but were so very glad we stopped for lunch.

This is a great little restaurant by the main square in Zihau, right on the water. You can eat your dinner with your feet in the sand. If you are looking for fine dining this is not the place. But if you want a great meal sitting by the water this is it! 4 of us had the lobster, which... More

An earlier reviewer was right about the drinks at Daniel's... 2 margaritas is one too many. ;) Our group of 7 had dinner here last night. It's right on the beach (meaning, on the sand). It's near the basketball court in El Centro and Sunday nights entertain a Mexican festival. Fishing boats on the beach, sail boats moored in harbor...... More

The crispy shrimp are fantastic. One word of caution. The drinks are strong. Two margaritas make you wonder how you are going to get home. The music was always great

They remembered us at every visit. Maybe a few things we didn't want them to remember haha. Jackie looked after us to the max. Music with Jimmy was too much fun. Food, drinks and service was always excellent.
