“High quality service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

It's great to have Juan Pablo and his team back on song for the Zihuatanejo high season. The food, and presentation are superb once again, and the ambience is convivial and enchanting. Some minor changes to the menu - the hearts of palm salad now includes lobster - so still a favorite for those who like a more European/US dining experience occasionally. A welcoming air conditioned bar area, which continues to serve good bar snacks, is a splendid meeting focus for the restaurant. The air-conditioned, clean and well maintained toilets must be considered a luxury for the area. Crepe-suzette or banana flambe' is a treat that you will rarely see north of the border, and the Spanish coffee will light up your night.
The bar opens at 5pm and restaurant at 6.

“A Zihuatanejo Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

You must visit Coconuts at least once while you are in Zihua. First class restaurant in the heart of this Mexican fishing village. Prices are high for this town but Coconuts offers first class service food an atmosphere. A very special place for a special night in Z.

“love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

There is no other place like this in zihua. The staff are great and the food is wonderful. Very beautiful patio and the manager Jaun Pablo is always right there to over see any need. I can't wait for it to open for the season.

“Rehearsal dinner”

The service was amazing! The manager was always making sure things were done the right way. He was at the forefront making the costumers feel at home. The wood was delicious. I will defiantly come again.

“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

One of the nicest restaurants in Zihua. Delicious food with a Mexican slant, but not your typical American-Mexican restaurant. A fun environment, excellent service (one of our waiters had been there since the restaurant opened), good drinks, and a very reasonable price tag at the end of the night. Apparently it is open seasonally only ... luckily we were there opening weekend.
