The view, the food, the service... it all combine for a "don't ever miss it" experience!! Great for couples looking for romance, but also for families with kids visiting the biopark! Great for friends looking for a excellent meal and an incredible pool or for going solo and just relax!!!

Celine Prevost recently took us on a tour of her small zoo in Zihuatanejo. Her passion for animals and nature in general is contagious. For people who often travel to tropical areas her personalized visit is a must. Ms. Prevost provided excellent information to the visitors about the potential risks of certain species to human health. Next times in Zihuatanejo... More

The cab drive up to the restaurant is always an experience. Once you walk into the pool and dining area it is breathtaking. You are greeted by the wonderful staff and made to feel very welcome. Gregory always remembers you from the previous year and makes you feel very special. Celine's tour is always very informative and there is always... More

We were the only ones at the pool for the afternoon. We got there at noon and the place didn't open until 1. If you use the pool, you need to spend at least 150 pesos on food and drink per person. Well, worth peace, quiet and view. The guacamole and tiritas were excellent as well. Didn't order much else.

The view from this restaurant is fabulous! We had a surprise birthday party here on March 4th 2014 with 19 people and for a large party like this, we were all impressed with the service and the food. Everyone was totally in love with the view. They made us feel special and took care of our every need. Prices are... More

As you'll see you by other reviews this restaurant has a great view from its dining room. This was our first visit and we found the food pretty good but not great. Unfortunately there so few people in the dining room that it is almost an eerie feeling. At the time of our visit we were told that there was... More

Our waiter Goyo was very nice and interesting. He has been working there for the past 10 years. We had the seafood plater for 2 and... More

We loved our visit to this dramatically beautiful spot. The food and service were superb and prices far better than the other hilltop places. The view is worth the trip by itself. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Highly recommended.

The service and food was outstanding, and the owner was extremely pleasant and interesting to speak with. The wild animal/insect tour was very interesting. You cannot ask for a better view. I will definitely return next year! Donna
