we forgot how good

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

Garrobos is a favorite with locals and visitors. The food is wonderful and Eloi and Gabriel will charm you with their excellent service. This is one of the best!

This place is in the middle of shopping area so it competes for clients. They speak English and serve good food and drinks.

The fresh seafood at this restaurant was amazing. It was recommended by the trip desk at the hotel as a local, fresh seafood place. It was incredible. It is located one block from the beach in centro Zihua. It is casual, but nice. Good margaritas and quac - but the seafood dinner I had is what is making me rave... More

Tucked away behind Pasco del pescador is a local gem, family owned and seafood fresh as can be, after all they are a fisher family. BUT the Paella is gob smacking, mind you it takes over 1 hour to cook and that's how it should be. One of the 10 best in the world you will everhave.

We ended up coming here two nights in a row on our recent stay. We came in the first time at the recommendation of our taxi driver. Since we wanted to watch baseball playoffs, the fact that they had multiple screens tuned to the game was a plus. Once seated, our waiter had told us that they had lobsters as... More

We went in the low season, so it was pretty quiet but lovely. We were staying at the Viceroy and although that was great, we wanted to venture out to town and enjoy the food there and not pay so much (as it was getting pricey eating at the hotel all the time). This place was recommended to us and... More
