Best seafood restaurant?

Hi, we have friends visiting soon for the first time. Anyone can recommend the best place for seafood, not necessarily fancy. Authentic, within a reasonable price range for the area is what we are looking for.

Thank you.

Too many to list but my first choices would be Lety's or her sister's restaurant Chendos.

Gary, I heard that Chendos closed down. Does anyone know if that is true?

Ate there twice last season. They did close for a few days to do some remodeling.

Rumor was by a person who has not been in Zihuatanejo in 6 or 7 years. Just that a Unfounded rumor.

Same food as Lety's but at a lower price.

We were the in March. Chendo's was hit and miss.

We thought they had closed also. They were closed the first day we walked by and i was surprized the next evening they were open.

We went back the next evening to eat and they were closed.

The next evening we were headed down town and they were open again.

Good Luck. They have always had good sea food when we have been there.

Thank you. Chendos seems to be popular. Where is it located please? I had posted on the wrong forum previously and someone recommended El Manglar. What do you think? Thank you.

If you go the Las Gatas be sure to try the coconut shrimp at Otilio's.

El Manglar has some wonderful dishes- great shrimp, 27 spice tuna, mahi mahi and salmon roll...you can't go wrong. It is on La Ropa- closed on Wednesdays.

Chendos is on Calle Adelita in La Madera- beside the canal.
