There's not a prettier view of the lights at night than here. It's a small restaurant, so, make reservations. There are two tables in the corner nearest the bay that offer a little more privacy from the rest of the patio, but all tables have a wonderful view. The owner and staff are friendly and provide excellent service. The Caprese... More

The view here was amazing and so was the food! Top of the line restaurant and very large portions! Make sure you go just before sun falls behind the mountain as it makes for a beauty photo!

The restaurant hangs on the side of a cliff and has open air windows that allow the sea breeze to drift in. The service was fast and friendly and the quality of the seafood was superb. They were out of a few wines but the one we ended up with went well with the food. They played an old Jerry... More

After three days of Mexican food, take a romantic break and eat atop a cliff overlooking the bay. The food is good Italian

Enjoyed dinner here on our last night in Zihau. Hubby enjoyed the spaghetti with meat sauce and I loved the Ravioli. Wine was very good and the service was great. A little pricier than some of our other evenings, but the view and atmosphere was worth it.

An amazingly romantic place with a view of the whole bay. Go to watch the sunset and enjoy their great selection of wines and awesome pasta dishes. Service was very attentive even though we such had large group and the restaurant was full. It will be a most memorable birthday for me.

We went for dinner here: the restaurant was only 1/3 full, service was good, sea food we ordered was great. A view of the bay from the restaurant is beautiful. Closes early. Onky detail I disliked was that they were getting ready to close, it was about 11pm, and had the used napkins and tablecloths in a pile on the... More

We ate here for our first night in Zihautenao. The food was very good, the service was excellent and the view is lovely. I had the pasta primavera and a good Caesar salad. The wine selection was also good.
