Great dinner with friends. Staff was excellent and ambience wonderful right on the beach. Had the blackened fish dinner and it was so good. Great drinks too but pricey for Mexico. Definitely check it Out if you're in the area.

Really good breakfasts including a large fruit plate with yogurt & granola. The fruit was outstanding. Also, one of the best sesame coated tuna dishes I've ever had...incredibly fresh tuna cooked perfectly and very moist....yum.

The location and setting is still amazing and the Ambience is great especially with the live band but it's such a shame that the service doesn't match. We will always return to the bar as it's great but it's such a shame that it has let it's service completely go. 3 times we had to order again because the staff... More

Watched several world cup games here. Think the owner is from Holland because there were a lot of orange shirts there the day I was there. Went 3 times. The calamari is the best I have ever eaten. Overpriced but the view and ability to be on the beach and have drinks and plenty of shade, it is worth it.

We had a wonderful afternoon drink and ceviche at Zenzi. The view of the ocean was perfect, the live music was relaxing and fun and the service was attentive and friendly. The food was so fresh, simple and delish. They also had simple and inviting decor - perfect for the beach. We stopped here unexpectedly while walking on the beach... More

I was here in early May for late night birthday cake and drinks on the beach. I was with a group of 9+ people and we all had a great time lounging on the couches at night at this ambient restaurant/bar. Other than the staff not being very attentive it was a great place to be. They had a 70's... More
