Delicious meal, amazing view!

Kau Kan was recommended to us, and did not disappoint. You have to look for it or you'll miss it on Escenica La Ropa. We were greeted and brought upstairs to their outdoor patio, our server was excellent and took great care of us. The view of La Madera beach is spectacular! The appetizer and... read more

Fabulous view, reasonable friendly service, very clean,ok food but not worth the price, poor value, there are many better alternatives in Zi like Puera Del Sol next door.

We were there in the rain last week so the roof area was closed for dining, but the main floor still had views of the whole ocean and town. The food was excellent, as was the service. Il Divo playing, a perfect night.

Best view with a meal. The staff was courteous and friendly. Seafood meals that are delicious with a view to die for!

This restaurant has been our perennial favorite. During our recent visit on a Friday night with friends the food was exceptional. The roasted chicken, the veal osso bucco and everything including the desert was great. The chef is the owner. We could not wait to go back unfortunately we decided to go Valentines Eve. A disastrous mistake. The place was... More

The view is incredible but the main was heavy on oil and the wine list was limited. French Onion Soup was delicious and desserts incredible. Worth visiting for the view

We went to dinner last night as a farewell to friends who were visiting us. We arrived at sunset and the view was amazing. During the course of the evening we watched the hills light up as we ate our delicious meal. We started with cocktails and appetizers of marlin cerviche and an olive and crab tart. We shared two...

A group of 9 of us enjoyed an excellent meal with great service and an amazing view! The entries of Mahi Mahi, red snapper, and seafood pasta were the favorites. The potato stuffed lobsters is a specialty, and very tasty. We will definitely be back there in April!

Our go-to beautiful dinner. Service is lovely; setting, gorgeous; food, excellent. We went for Christmas Day dinner, which we never do, since we usually follow the Mexican tradition of having Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve (Noche Buena). But it POURED rain all day Christmas Eve, and we had had plans to eat at Coconuts, which has an outdoor courtyard. We... More

We had nine amazing dishes. I particularly recommend the warm tomato salad (you may never eat a tomato again the same way), and the red snapper. But all the food was great, including the desserts. Sadly, the place seems empty and rundown, with broken light bulbs and shabby furniture. I also think the staff were not were not well trained,... More
