Owner/chef Israel Salazar continues to explore and expand the culinary options in Zihuatanejo. Using only first quality ingredients, he creates special dishes that are available nowhere else in town. Israel is widely known for his Thai creations, but he lavishes the same attention and care on his Mexican and Italian offerings. His attentive, bi-lingual floor staff, amazing food, and full bar will make any evening at El Murmullo one to remember.

Had dinner here last night. It was amazing. The service is fantastic and the food was awesome. We had the spinach salad and satay soup to start. So good! We then enjoyed the tequila shrimp, mahi mahi, and mixed Thai stir fry. It was all so very good. Sit on the street under a fan. Great evening!
