We had s&s pork (just like home) shrimp and veggie tempura which came with a light brown sweet dipping sauce. Ginger beef which was not breaded nor deep fried but full of veggies and very tender. Quick efficient service and although my spouse always carries his own salsa de soya they had some! With rice and two beer a reasonable... More

Mi Chayito has operated for ages inside the Hotel Real de la Palma, near the end of Escenica la Ropa (the main road behind Playa la Ropa), and has opened a second location a bit closer to town near Hotel JB. They have only been open a couple of weeks so far we were told. They're open for breakfast, lunch... More

Had several meals here, as I was stayng at the adjoining hotel (Real La Palma). The food was wonderful each time (both breakfast and Dinners). They have quite a lengthy menu for dinner that includes several Chinese Selections as well as standard Mexican fare. The staff is great -- they even put on a little extra for my little birthday...

We ate breakfast here twice. the front of the place is deceiving because it always looks like no one is there. But that is because they have a lovely patio in the rear and that is where everyone is seated. I had Huevos Tarascos both days because they were so delicious. They have a breakfast special that includes fruit, juice,... More

we ate here several times when we were in Zihua over Thanksgiving in 2014. Found it to be very good and a nice change. However, we went back during the month of February and did not find it near as good. I had a combination platter and it was fair at best. Beer is cold tho and the setting is... More

If you reach a point where you are tired of fish, seafood, salsa and chips...give this little restaurant a try. Good quality food, friendly efficient service and won't break your pocket book. Stop by and see for yourself.
