Wonderful atmosphere. Wonderful people and wonderful food. In 6 days, went back 4 times! We had great salads, wine, and great chocolate cake! The pasta was cooked perfectly. And, Wednesday night is Greek night. Fun. Love that ouzo.

Seated in the corner table for 2 looking over the bay at sunset. It is such a pretty setting that I can forgive the inconsistent food, but this time our meal was really wonderful. We had a bottle of Malbec, the antipasto platter, the fresh fish & a spicy sausage pasta. All for less than $100, which isn't cheap for... More

Il Mare has a fantastic view of Zihuatanejo - set atop the cliffs overlooking the water it's hard to find a better view! The food was very good (we were in need of a break from Mexican - while excellent we wanted to try something different). This is a great place to go for a romantic dinner.

One person recommend this place to us, another told us not to go there. Unfortunately we didn't listen to the advice of the second person. Il Mare has a lovely position overlooking the bay of Zihua and is attractively lit by candle light. Hence the lighting is so bad that the waiters have to provide a torch for its guests... More

Fine Dining and one of the best views in the world. Reserve and ask for the corner table if you are only 2. The food is great, the wine list could be expanded but it is acceptable. And then there is the view. Most romantic dinner ever.

This restaurant is very close to the Club Intrawest resort, which gives it extra points for me. Their greek salad was amazing, and I'm sure the caprese would be fantastic when Tomatoes are in season - the ones i had were a little under ripe. Spinach and Cheese ravioli was amazing. My sister enjoyed the "Fruit of the Sea" pasta... More

We had our 25th Wedding Anniversary party there on Feb. 14th 2008. We were 17 people in our party. We met with the manager a few days before the party and agreed on a menu and price. The food was outstanding at a very good price. We had a cocktail hour at sunset just before the meal. We split the... More

I have eaten here twice. The first time it was fabulous and the next time it was good. The view though never changes and is worth the visit and money spent for dinner. Nice to have dinner during sunset. Even though you make reservations you cannot count on getting a table by the rail but this is typical for Mexico... More

We were hoping for a meal of seafood and fish. All we could find on the menu were shrimps and the fish of the day red snapper. I ordered the fish which was very dry. Everything looked otherwise very greasy. This is an Italian restaurant with nothing more than a plate of spaghetti.

I’m always skeptical about eating Italian in Mexico, but we had heard decent reviews and Il Mare was close to our hotel. This is an open air restaurant overlooking the rocky portion of Zihua bay between La Ropa beach and Madera beach. The views from the restaurant perched up on the hill are excellent. The service and food at dinner... More
