J.R, Ernesto and rest of the staff at La Casa Veja. Rie and I salute you. You know why. But for others we will explain why. We ate at this restaurant twice during our stay in Zihua. My wife wanted me to taste “real” mole poplano and asked if that could be arranged because it was not shown on the... More

We told the tuna was fresh. It was not. It was overcooked and had too much sauce to try to disguise the fishy taste. The rest of th meals were so-so

Family run, as usual, in Zihua. Just a gorgeous resturant. A little tricky to find but well worth it. The food, and atmosphere is great.

Our fourth trip to Zihuatanejo, cv famous for their margaritas and ambiance. Main disappointment was that the margaritas were very skimpy: much smaller and weaker; our meals were all good- the men quite enjoyed their extra large pork chops, and the musician (singer on keyboard) was very good too.

This restaurant was recommended to our friends by someone who must be getting a finders fee! We arrived, at 7pm, at the large but empty restaurant. All I can say is that the wait staff tried their best and actually were the best part of the dinner! My margarita was weak and had about 2 ice cubes in it, my... More

Went for dinner, and found the decor to be very pleasing.The wait staff were helpful, and courteous. The food was very tasty, as I had the fish(Mahi Mahi) and Shrimp plate in an excellent, slightly spicey sauce. Came with some fresh veggies, and a side of rice. I certainly enjoyed it. We also had the chicken dish, with ham and... More

Came here for a late dinner. There was a musician playing which gave the restaurant a nice ambiance. Ordered steak, shrimp stuffed chili rellenos, key lime pie and margaritas. They were good but not excellent. Service was somewhat slow and our bill was much more than I expected.

My wife and I stopped for dinner on the recommendation from another couple. She had the Camarones de Casa, and I had the grilled quail. My dish was very good, and her's was average. The salsa verde that was served with the pre-meal chips was most excellent; made from avocado and serrano peppers. Good value on food, wine was over... More
