Nice seafood restaurant near the naval station.

La sirena gorda is a fun restaurant that also has a gift shop and a few murals of the Sirena gorda. We always stop by and visit and take pictures. Staff is very friendly.

We went to La Sirena Gorda yet again, and we continue to enjoy the fresh ceviche, tiritas, and guacamole for appetizers. Also enjoy the pulpo tacos, and seafood tacos. Plenty to be happy about! The margaritas are good as well.

We had heard about this restaurant, translated to The Fat Mermaid and we were excited to give it a try. It is clever, all about the Fat Mermaid Theme, paintings on the walls, merchandise, etc. Unfortunately, the food and the service really let us down. We went on a Sunday evening, granted the busiest time there because it is just... More

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.
