We were regular customers of La Bocana until our last visit. We ordered a complete meal as we always do and, being typical Gringos, also ordered chips and salsa as a pre-meal snack along with a couple of beers. When we received the bill an additional 30 pesos had been tacked on for the chips and salsa. The waitress said... More

La Bocana restaurant is a small, family owned, open-air restaurant on the road to La Ropa Beach in Zihuatanejo. Easy to get to, La Bocana, which the family moved from downtown Zihua, features an outstanding menu of various foods and, on Thursdays, one of the finest pozole dishes around. Ricardo and his wife are extremely friendly and welcome each visitor... More

This restaurant was a nice short walk from La Ropa, in a very quiet setting all by itself. The atmosphere there was positive, very clean, delicious food and never any vendors. This is definitely a place to enjoy wonderful people, food, ambiance and relax! A must for everyone to try at least once! They have a unique fruit smoothie that... More

This little gem is a great addition to the La Ropa area. While not right on the beach, it offers its own fresh ambiance, set back just far enough from the road, and surrounded by well tended landscaping. The owner will gladly take you on a little tour of the grounds and explain about the different trees and plants. Service... More

Pozole for lunch on Thursdays is a local tradition. Try it at La Bocana near Playa La Ropa. The green pozole with chicken was very good compared to that we have had at highly recommended restaurants in downtown Zihuatanejo. In fact everything we ordered turned out to be better than we expected. It seemed as if they took the usual... More

This was our first visit to the restaurant after seeing the great reviews from Trip Advisor. The food was very tasty but we've had better breakfasts elsewhere in Zihuatanejo. The owners are very nice and the service was quite speedy. The setting wasn't anything to write home about, but it's in a convenient location if you're staying on Playa La... More

Ziwhat has so many wonderful restaurants I was surprised that this got such a high rating. Everything about it is average. The location is on Playa La Ropa Boulevard. Street view. Not on the beach or view property. Ambience is minimal, plastic chairs and tables. Washrooms clean. Service was fine. Dinner-started with a mixed salad, lots of veg. good dressing.... More

I was happy to see that the restaurant moved into a larger space. The food quality has stayed the same over the years. La Bocana is still one of my favorite breakfast spots in Zihua. Had lunch for the first time during my last visit and wasn't disappointed!!
