While specializing in slow food, I didn't find it overly slow. It was just right. Everything was made-to-order and excellent, but the speed was perfect for a nice sit-down dinner. The prices are very reasonable, and the staff exceptional. Their drinks were made extremely well, and quite economically too. Especially considering the quality. We had about 12 menu items between...

Great place...2nd floor open restaurant above a quaint neighborhood. Not a place if you are in a hurry but great for a relaxing dinner. Great dinner presentation.

intrigued by the slow food sign and the menu we decided to give it a shot. Lovely space upstairs on Adelita street. Friendly, humble service, excellent interesting food and an enjoyable evening for a reasonable price. Provides a nice alternative to the sameness of many Zihuat menus.

We have been to La Gula on previous visits and returned our first night this time. It is easy to miss as there are many along this street, and you have to walk up stairs to get there. Great atmosphere and excellent service. All of the meals we ordered ! Nice music and quiet pleasant meal.

My wife and I went with three other friends to La Gula last night for dinner. The ambiance is wonderful. The service is good. When the food was served it looked beautiful. Really great presentation. But-I had to send my pork chop back to be warmed up because it was cold when I received it. My wife was too polite... More

La Gula is a small restuant tucked away on the 2 nd floor in a typical neighborhood close to the Zihua waterfront. It is completely open including the kitchen and overlooks the street. Food is gourmet grade as is the service. Menu is varied seafood, pasta, great appitizer selection and salads. Prices are very resonable considering the quality of the... More
