Restaurant is closed as seems to be the common result of any high end restaurant in Ixtapa and Zihua. We used to go to Espuma in Zihua which is also closed.

We have visited this lovely restaurant on every visit to Ixtapa. We were sad to read in one of your reviews that it had closed. I did check with the restaurant and they confirmed that they are no longer open and do not have any concrete plans to re-open though they hope to do so. I think it is important... More

Spectacular view, stunning restaurant and great service. The food is definitely decent. What lacks in food is made up by the view and service!

Excellent service, great food. Best of all is the view from cliff overlooking the ocean. Loved the fresh ingredients used to prepare the food, I would suggest a reservation as it is a very popular place. Also has an interesting history of being an x-presidents residence.

Nice view, great food but over price. The wine is way over priced. Had better meals in Zihua at much better prices. It is still a nice place for a birthday party, but bring your visa card!

This restaurant is located upon a cliff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean with all the tables outside, facing the sea on several layers of terraces. The ambiance couldn't be more amazing and the food and service is the best I've encountered in all Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. If you're looking for a place to have a very special, romantic dinner you can't go... More

Excellent food, service, view, and wine list too. We had the scallop appetizer, tuna, and mole fish. Would definitely return for the sunset.

This was the first time we had been to this restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. Although my allergies to certain foods limited my choices, the chef did his very best to make my evening a culinary delight. The service is wonderful. You are not rushed and given the time to savour your food and the beautiful ambiance. The... More
