We arrived at Puerta del Sol hoping to catch the sunset and were extremely disappointed. The waiter was great but he seemed a little nervous. The owner came up to us and asked if we wanted a drink but hadn't given us drinks menus. We found this strange but ordered beer off her nonetheless. The food came out quickly and... More

My family stayed at Embarc and were referred to this restaurant from another guest at our pool. He was right, the food and service were incredible. The moment we walked in, George treating us like family. It reminded us of dining in our grandmother's kitchen/high end restaurant in NYC. He perfectly curated a memorable and delightful dining experience. I highly... More

This is our 3rd time in Zihua and we've gone past it every time, finally decided to try it - great location when you're staying at Embarc (Club Intrawest), just a 5 min walk. We were seated right away at a table on the edge of the balcony with a view. Lots to choose from on the menu, a little... More

From the minute you walk in, Jorge makes you feel like you are home! His tableside presentations cannot be beat. The Caesar salad was the best we've ever had. Jorge uses a special olive oil infused with garlic. We also had tableside presentations for beef stroganoff and Roquefort beef medallions. Wow, are we really in Mexico? Now keep in mind,... More

We have been in Zihua five times and have walked by this place many times but never stepped inside. Perhaps maybe it was the garish yellow exterior that put us off. Big Mistake. We saw it had a good Trip Advisor rating so we decided to give it a try since it was near our hotel. We weren't sure it... More

Talk about making you feel welcome! I felt as though we stepped into someone's dining room at home intesead of a restaurant. Our waiter, Eduardo, was so patient and helpful with us; thrilled to help me practice my spanish. I wanted ceviche and saw it was "tropical coconut ceviche". I almost passed but thank goodness I didn't! It was a... More

Passed by Puerta del Sol many times, needed to try it! The hosts/owners/chefs are very friendly, the wait staff are prompt as well. Pretty broad menu, good choices and fresh ingredients. They will steer you toward a flaming dish, and that's not a bad thing. A lot of the fun to be had here is the showmanship -- a flaming... More

Another case of progress narrowing what hat been a spectacular view of the bay, but still a good view. The food is very good with table side preparation including ceasear salad, multiple flambe` dishes and dessert Bananas Foster. Everyone is offered a shot of local liquor at the end of the dinner. The chef and staff put on a production... More

We had an awesome dinner last night with a great sunset view. My husband and I enjoyed wine with our shrimp cocktail to start the evening. Our Cesar salad was so fresh and made to perfection as well as our tequila shrimp made at the table. Great service and the price was right. Thank you Gabby.

We have been to Zihuatanejo twice now and while we have found a couple of nice places to eat with some spectacular sunsets on the beach the food has always been "acceptable". This place was by far the best experience we have had in Zihuatanejo. My wife is Vegan and they offered both Vegetarian and Vegan options on a separate... More
