First of all, they need to update their picture. They have moved and are not on Calle Adelita. Now across from the taxis by Rufo's. Wonderful little place. Go for early breakfast and beat the heat of the day. Wonderful staff and food.

I enjoyed a fresh, flavorful and reasonably priced meal from this small, informal restaurant tucked away on a quiet side street. Served with rice, steamed vegetable slices and mango sauce an ample number of plump,coconut-encrusted shrimp were pleasingly arranged on a colorful plate. My wine glass was generously filled with a good quality, chilled wine also very reasonably priced. Carlos... More

Nice breakfast for a reasonable price. We tried it several times this year and found it very good. WIth lots of choices near Madera beach this one is worth a visit.

We went back again for Coco Shrimp always great. Service is impeccable Carlos was great fun. We miss the big tree though casualty of the hurricane. But they put a cute little bar in its place. We will come back every year.

Four of us had dinner here on New Year's Day. The place was empty but we've been there for breakfast several times so we knew the food was good. I had a salad and a unique squash appetizer, both simple yet delicious. My husband had the chicken cordon bleu which was hand-breaded and tasty. Another member had the chicken kabobs... More

Small place, surprisingly decent wine. Everybody enjoyed their dinner and we would go back. Service was good. (in fact we ate out over 9 nights in Zihuatanejo and the service in every restaurant was way better then a lot of Canadian restaurants)

We came here for dinner. Both my husband and I ordered the fish. The server told us it was mahi mahi, but I don't think it was. My husband fish was swimming in soy sauce and can barely finish the meal without a lot of water, and mine was steam fish in which it was tasteless, I had to get... More

We just made it to eat breakfast before they closed for the season. Thank goodness. it does take while if you have more than two people, as they make everything fresh and there is only one cook. It is all great, we had huevos rancheros, huevos mexicana, and pancakes! it was all fabulous. Last year we were lucky to eat... More

Same as last year. Their breakfast choices are varied and plenty when it comes to portion size. This is always our first stop on our first day in town. You can't go wrong at El Perla.
