Lovely sidewalk setting with tables outside and in. We started with the Tortilla Soup which was excellent and then we both had fish for dinner. I had the fresh Mahi Mahi in herbs and my husband had tuna. Both very tasty! The service was excellent and the waiter was funny too. He spoke english very well. You can find this... More

We recently ate here with a group to watch a basketball game. The food wasn't fantastic but wasn't bad either. The staff is great and food came quickly. It is rather noisy but knowing that in advance we had no problem with it. We had margaritas by the pitcher and they were very good. This is a touristy place so... More

There was singing, a parade, vendors, a football game. Hard to concentrate on the really good food. Nice salad. Good tacitos.

Caters mostly to tourists. Sports bar feel. While we were there, they were showing hockey classics which appealed to our group of 8 Canadians. We were also entertained by a singer originally from Canada and now living in Zihuatanejo with her Mexican husband. I had the fish molcajete which is served in a very hot bol sculped in a lava...

Aptly named - Bandido's. Four of us had lunch, which was alright. And we all chipped in for the tab, counting out the pesos correctly, plus tip. As we left, the head honcho (who just stands around and schmooze's) and our waiter brought the money back and told us we had shorted the payment. Not true, not even true. We... More

This is a great, fun place to watch sports. Nice setting, clean and classy. Their fresh Guacamole and pico de gallo are excellent. We were however not so happy with the lobster and steak, which ran about $32 US. The steak cut was presented as a filet mignon but it was more of a cheap top sirloin. I took one... More

The food was fine, but not great. This is not the place to come for an authentic Mexican experience. While there are some Mexican dishes (I had enchiladas which were just OK) the menu is more geared to American taste buds. I also found it a tad expensive. They did prepare a nice pico de gallo right at the table... More

Guac & pico de gallo prepared fresh at your table, spiced to taste - careful, medium has a bite though! Cordon blue is amazing, big plate! Reasonable prices.
