Nice local pkace

Best dinner of our 3 in Zihue. Friendly staff, nice looking place, reasonably priced. My Carne Asada was quite good. Tuna skewers and Chile Rellano also very good. Would definitely return.

This resturaunt could be in a retirement home in just about any city in the US. The food was bland and overcooked, and just plain boring!! The owner tried to way over charge us for the bottle of wine we ordered, he wanted 900 pesos for a bottle that should have been about 400 pesos! The one good thing is... More

The decor is inviting and live guitar music filled the place with goodwill and happiness on Father's Day Sunday 2015. We eat the fabulous Sunday Brunch buffet. It contained both homemade Mexican and regional specialties and American fare.. The locals were here with several large family groups, always an indicator of memorable experience. Each Father received a special l Father's... More

This restaurant was right down the street from our hotel, so we visited pretty frequently. The servers here are very personable and friendly. They speak pretty good English, and were more than happy to teach us some Spanish. They joked with us and chatted with us a bit. (Our favourite server is Ray.) The food here is very good, big...

It was pretty empty close to our hotel. Nice waiter but a lousy piece of fish and awful veggies. Over priced. Sorry but they could have done a lot better

After we had our favorite meal of the trip Friday, we returned for brunch Sunday. It was even better! It's a buffet with authentic Mexican options, an egg's any style bar, and handmade tortillas while you wait.

Casa Vieja serves pozole on Thursdays from 2pm until it runs out, and it's something we try to hit at least once when in town.  After a four year hiatus from visiting Zihua, we were happy to return to Casa Vieja and find the pozole still in effect and still delicious.  You can pick red, green or blanco with chicken,...

5 stars easy! Best breakfast and most relaxing atmosphere that I came in contact with on my recent trip to Zihuatanejo. Was highly recommended by others in the area. Brunch is served only on Sundays. Lunch and dinner on the rest of the week. Brunch on Sunday is buffet style. Attentiveness is 10 stars. Ask for Ray, a very kind... More
