We occasionally stop in for a beer and to hear to hear live music, but this place is kind of dark and seems dirty. Many tourists love to come drink and dance here.

We came here in '05 and '07 and loved it. We came back twice on this trip, but it was also to see our favorite bartender, Jesus. Fresh salsa is made right at your table, and the menu includes some very creative items, not just tacos and burritos.

Our group of 7 grabbed an early dinner here one night. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious. In addition the service and advice we received from the waitstaff was insightful and helpful. If were ever back in Zihuatanejo, we will be back for another meal.

The food was ok, really good salsa. How ever it was priced high! Everything we had was ok no complaints but we sure paid USA prices.

Located on Cinco De Mayo street, the main local merchant shopping street, this restaurant was perfect. Americanized type sportsbar, with big screen tv's. We watched the World Cup games from this spot. Very delicious food. Their shrimp tacos are to die for. Great service. Most waiters speak great English.

This is a nice "street-view" restaurant that has Mexican & seafood specialties, music and sports TV. The waiters are fun and friendly, the service good and they make salsa, to your taste at your table. We had chicken fajitas and the flavors of all the fixins' were fantastic. Definitely a good place to enjoy a meal or some drinks.

Band at night, lots of people watching, if you go for drinks only they shove you up next others like you so you don't waste valuable dining space

Guy at hotel recommended this, and told us if you have a reservation you get 10% off. That was a good tip because i was a bit more expensive. They make salsa by your table,and it was pretty good food. Near marina.

We left after a michelada and some guacamole. No too bad, but the menu was lacking. All of the fish options had tuna...yuck. Why would I want a fish taco with tuna? Other than that nothing stood out as a good option, so we left for another restaurant down the road and had a great meal there. A good location... More
