Best fish taco's ever.

On the beach at Playa Ropa, the service is superb. It's great to wiggle our toes in the sand and drink cold drinks and eat good food. This is the second year we have come back to this little place as the food and atmosphere are wonderful. The fish tacos are deep fried unlike the ones on the... read more

We had a fun and satisfying meal here, my companions having fresh seafood dishes, while I tried the special: a chicken dish in a tasty cream sauce. It was out of this world. Help was great and the food was promptly served. Location could not be better (right on the waves).

We ate here twice during the two days we spent on Playa Ropa. It is a bit of a walk down the beach but it is well worth it. One night I had Tortilla Soup (excellent) an my husband had fresh fish prepared in a Mexican style. The next night we shared Fajitas and another fish dish. All were well... More

The most delicious fresh, local and tasty food to satisfy a French and Californian/Mexican palate. The setting is the best, the atmosphere is wonderful, diverse and alive! The service is mellow, relaxed like it should be, the food is beautifully presented. You feel like you have arrived exactly where you wanted to be for a pleasant vacation or permanent stay.... More

We ate here one evening after a day on the beach and the first thing to say is the service is terribly, terribly slow. The food, once it arrived, was fine, and the location is excellent to watch the sunset, but honestly if you're not a patient person the slow service will rile you.

I have traveled to Zihuatanejo many times and a trip is not complete without eating at Paty's Mar y Mar on Playa La Ropa. Dining on the beach under the palm trees, your feet in the sand with great food and service, what's not to love about this place. This year it was for breakfast and I had one of... More

Day or night Paty's provided us a great spot to sit on the beach, watch the waves and enjoy the warm sun while the staff provided us with quality drinks (double drinks during Happy Hour) and first class food. The menu is a combination of Mexican sea food and "Gringo Food". All the prices are reasonable. Under the large roof... More

Although we enjoyed eating in town (especially the resturants and fondos in the area of the Mercardo de Artesanía) even breakfast in the Mercardo once. We enjoyed great breakfast at Paty's as well as lunch. Once or twice we just stopped by for some delicious ice cream (once with Kahlua added that was of course fantastic). The servers remembered us... More

We stopped here for lunch and dinner, and everything was great. Food was very good, all the meals great, nice large portions, very reasonably priced, would definitely recommend this restaurants. Wife used the yoga and massage services, and she was very pleased with everything. The massage is done in the building across the way, upstairs, and private. Many of the... More
