Relaxed dining at its Best!

I've been to La Gula twice now and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The open air atmosphere is a step up from the typical on-street dining of Zi, yet still casual and offering great value.

I dropped in on my own without a reservation. Happily, the lovely woman in charge treated me like royalty and offered a prime seat, overlooking Adelita, soon to be vacated. I had two appetizers, the seafood shells and the octopus, both delicious. My waiter was kind and friendly too. What a lovely evening.

This restaurant tries very hard to be an upscale establishment but doesn't quite make it. The food was OK but nothing special. The drinks were also just so-so. The table linens and the pewter chargers were a nice touch but overall the quality was mediocre. There are much better values in Zihua. We don't think we'll give them another try.

La Gula is a gem and worth a visit. Wonderful welcome and service. Well cooked and delicious food and a lovely, albeit non view, setting. It's always been a favorite!

This is our favorite restaurant in "Z"!!!!!!!!!!! We tell everyone that we meet about it because it's one of those ones that not everyone knows about. We want them to NEVER go out of business so we advertise for them!!! They are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
