We like to be away from the maddening crowds, so Amado's seemed like a good choice. A couple of other customers, just drinking and relaxing. We ordered Cokes, which came out quickly. We ordered lunch, which didn't come out quite so quickly. 20 minutes after ordering, I asked where the food was. Soon my shrimps in chili sauce was served.... More

After walking the length of the beach and being courted by every restaurant, our party of four settled at Amado's, the last restaurant on the beach, where the kindly waiter Rafael, who had no customers, pleaded with us to sit down. He promised to look after us and told us the beach in front was perfect for swimming. Although all... More

Amado's is the last restaurant on Playa Las Gatas in Zihuatanejo. There are quite a few to chose from, but it is definitely worth the walk to wait for Amado's. The food is fresh, the service is great, and the water is right there at your feet. Amado also is probably the most skilled fisherman in all Zihua. We wins... More

The 1st day I had garlic shrimp, which were very good, but had to be peeled. OK tortillas. Husband had garlic fish, and it was overcooked. Next day we both had... More

On arriving at Las Gatas my wife and I decided to walk the beach right away and of coarse everyone wanted our business waving menus and arms at us. As we got to Amados, David was just quietly standing there and said this is the last place and also is the best, please enjoy your walk. We continued out to... More

There are 9 restaurants on the Las Gatas beach. This is the last one (furthest west). We had shrimp and lobster and it all tasted great. With a bucket of beer and a few margaritas we had a very relaxing lunch. Only downside is that swimming is not very good at this end of the beach, water is too shallow... More
