I applaud Coconuts for a beautiful dinner during a very busy event. My husband and I both had the red snapper which was perfectly cooked and moist, with a light wine, lemon and caper sauce. The evening was delightful.

Hello Katie, Yes, the guitar festival was a very busy and successful event here at Coconuts. We had two nights of wonderful guitar music. Tuesday night we were sold out and at full capacity, many walk ons tried to come but we could not accommodate them all. Thank you for your comments and glad you enjoyed yourselves. Coconuts!!! More

This is a nice restaurant with great food at fairly high prices for the area. The atmosphere is top notch, food selection and wine list excellent, and try the flaming Mexican coffee or bananas Foster for desert!

Yes a bit spendy but worth it. Outdoor dining. Great service. Mrs had the hearts of palm salad and red snapper for her main. I had the fried calamari and a surf and turf main that they put together for me - a petite filet and 3 coconut shrimp. Just wonderful. Everything beautifully prepared. Had the oaxacan brownie with ice... More

Hi Yobacacahuates, We apologize for unpleasant experience at Coconuts. The lobster at that time was very difficult to find anywhere in Zihua, with the high tide and rough waters, the lobsters don't come out to the surface to be caught, the fisherman can not go very deep to look for them as they don't have the gear for such expeditions....

We recently had dinner at this venerable Zihuatanejo establishment. We hadn't been there in over 15 years. Everything looked the same. I am told new management took over about 13 years ago. The prices are on the high side compared to other restaurants of its type in the area. The drinks are very good here along with the atmosphere. There... More

We opted to have drinks and appetizers while sitting at Coconuts. It was great but then decided to order the Seafood Pasta. Why I don't know but it sounded good. Unfortunately it was one of the most expensive entrees we had in Z and turned out to be the biggest let down. We had also gone because of the music... More
