“Coconuts - Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went three times in the one week of our trip to Zihuantanejo. The waiters provided great service and were always accomodating to out needs. They always seemed to be happy doing what they do so well. The Manager, Juan Pablo Samayoa was very gracious and went well beyond expectations to make sure our dining was a great experience. The beef filet and the pork chop were excellent. Our third visit was make sure we had taste of the flambed crepes. They were worth the trek into town..The entertainment was pretty good. Not so loud as to be distracting but enough to hear the music while in conversation..

“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Fabulous!!! We haven't been to the area for a couple of years so we couldn't wait to get back here and did so the first night (and again another night). We found out it was under new ownership and management and we couldn't have been more pleased. The food, atmosphere, service and overall quality were superb!! Can't wait to get back!!

“Service, Food, Atmosphere....all top notch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Dropped in without a reservation on a special night when a world class musician was in town, and decided on Coconuts to play a gig while on vacation. Obviously the place was jammed, so we were amazed at the extent that General Manager Juan Pablo went to, to accommodate us. The staff was literally running through the place to keep people happy, and Juan Pablo made us our drinks himself before seating us. It's obvious with Juan Pablo, that service is now a top priority at Coconuts which I admit suffered a bit in the past. Everything about our experience was memorable, to the point where the owner stopped by to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.

With many solid options available to dine in Zihuatanejo, Coconuts now sets itself among the top. looking forward to our next visit.
