My husband and I look forward to our annual trip to Zihua and dinners at this restaurant. We usually go on a Wednesday night which is Greek night and enjoy the specialties of the house. Their pasta preparations continue to be the equal of any Italian restaurant in New York City. The location and the view of the Bay make... More

This was a first time to the restaurant. It has a great view overlooking the Bay. The staff was excellent and accommodating. All our dishes were perfectly cooked, with very healthy portions and they accommodated some changes. It is very much worth the visit.

The view is so romantic it's worth a trip here just for that. We had seafood pasta and it was delicious! The service was great and our waiter took time to take pictures of us, with the sunset of course!! We shared a salad which was also very good. We will definitely go back when visiting Zihuatanejo.

This place is filled with other hungry Americans, and packs them in tight. The waitstaff is hit or miss, and some come across as the same hucksters that work the lunch stands on the beach. Not my style. Some of the food was decent (caprese salad), no was mediocre (griller mahi) and some inedible (grilled octopus). On the bright side,... More

Ha! So romance was not the goal...with a 4 year old and an 8 year old. But arrived just before sunset and enjoyed the glorious view. Great service from a waiter who was kind enough to deal with our kids Spanglish practice and a lovely meal - of which the highlight was certainly the homemade chocolate cake and the frozen... More

Stayed in Zihuatanejo for 2 weeks this trip and our whole eating schedule is planned around dinners at Il Mare! We go there 3 times during our stay and each time it is fantastic! The pasta and the seafood dishes are the very best. Don't miss Greek night on Wednesdays for the lasagne. The flaming cheese is to die for!!... More

Dinner tonight at Il Mare - about half way between Centro and Paty's on the road to Playa la Ropa. An annual favourite for the past 14/15 years since Fernando (the owner) opened. Lovely location on a cliff side overlooking Centro Zihuatanejo. This evening Fernando was at the restaurant having just arrived from San Miguel de Allende the day before... More
