This restaurant by far serves the best lobster in town. It is cooked to perfection and just delicious. My dish came out with three fairly rage lobsters on it and it was such a beautiful dish that almost every body that came into the restaurant and sat near us ordered the same dish. The only unfortunate thing is that we... More

My wife is a garlic snapper afficianado. She practically orders it every night when we are Ixtapa/Zihau, which we have been visiting for 20 years. Nobody does it better than Garrobos. They use a huge whole fish, flash-fry it so that it's crispy outside, tender inside. They also makes an outstanding margarita. The restaurant itself is comfortable, not fancy. Staff... More

This seafood restaurant, behind the waterfront and Elvira's restaurant, is clean and service is attentive. The food however is mediocre. Seafood soup: described as a savory broth with fish, octopus, calamari, fish and shrimp was lacking in all items. I asked the waiter where the fish was and he skewered a tiny piece of floating white stuff as the fish.... More

Excellent shrimp for my husband and they prepared a tasty vegetarian meal for me even though they had no veggie dishes on the menu. Spotless dining area and close to our favorite place to buy wool rugs. Wait staff were friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back!

Nice place with a family friendly staff. The Red Snapper was prepared to perfection. Prices an proportion were reasonable an on point. We went on a humid night the restaurant is open so the mosiquitos were feasting like patrons. Our waiter noticed us fighting the bites an brought over repellent. Very thoughtful

there are so many good restaurants in Zihua that sometime one gets forgotten. We'd been to Garrobos twice lat year but forgot it this year until this evening. Food and service were excellent. We only wish we still had more gringo friends here to recommend it.

This may not be our most favorite place in Zih, but its always good and I would recommend this place to others to try. The meals, both lunch and dinner have always been well prepared, average waiting time, nice portions, and very reasonably priced. Its on the strip across from the marina, where sometimes the restaurants are not considered very... More
