We took a couple Sailfish fillets from a recent catch and they really prepared them deliciously! Perfectly done , great service too. I make a point of eating here on every visit! Love their bacon wrapped tuna fillet and mojo de ajo fillet served over salad. Such delish dressing! Breakfast is good here too.

The worst restaurant we ate at when visiting Zihuatanejo. There was little food on the plate. My friend ordered the red snapper. She was the only one with food. Our other friend ordered the chicken breast. He had 8 fries, less than 1 1/2inches big. Not exactly a Mans meal. My husband had the tuna which had good flavor just... More

We stumbled into The Fat Mermaid for lunch after enjoying cocktails on the beach one day. We each had the pork taco's, they were great! Awesome décor to look at, clean bathrooms, relatively fair prices. A good place to enjoy a quick lunch and head back to the beach.

We wanted to eat at Murmillo's tonight but they are closed on Sundays. So, we thought we eat at Joe's Marina Cafe but they were also closed. So it was between Lety's or La Sirena Gorda and since we have been to Lety's multiple times in the past; we thought we give La Sirena a first try. The menu is... More

The ginger magarita are amazing. Don't miss this place if your are in town. Also checkout the little gift shop in the back. We have had dinner and found it very good and the price is also.

We returned to the "Fat Memaid" after 15 years away. While we cannot say they have made any real efforts to make the place a bit more appealing (other than the paintings of fat mermaids), the local seafood is still delightful and at the head of the class in Zihua. Any of the tacos are great, but we particularly like... More

We have been to this restaurant several times, and it has been consistently excellent. My favorite dish is the tacos de pulpo (octopus tacos), which are succulent. The lobster tacos are also excellent as the tacos al pastor de pescado. The service is always excellent. Highly recommended.

We went with the waiter’s suggestion and ordered different combinations of fish tacos, all of which were excellent. The service is great and the restaurant itself is unique in its design and décor. The Fat Mermaid is well worth a visit Great service, great prices, and lots of unique handmade items in the small gift shop they have there. It’s... More
