“Great food, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We were looking for a small, family owned type of restaurant that served what we were in Mexico for - tacos, when we found this place. There are a lot of pricier options around (and way too many italian restaurants in my opinion) so when we saw the small patio casualness of the place we stopped and we were so happy we did.

Their tacos were delicious, served with freshly made tortillas, onions and cilantro. It wasn't as noisy as some of the other restaurants around which I liked. The prices were very reasonable and the service was excellent. Our only regret was not finding it earlier, it was our last night there and would've loved to come back. They also serve breakfast which was again, very well priced.

“Great breakfast spot in ixtapa. Super nice people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Very, very nice people own this restaurant. The sister and her brother own this restaurant and they both work there. They have great attention to the service level you would expect. The place is super clean and organized. The breakfasts that we have enjoyed over the last 5 years are consistantly wonderful. The setting is kinda park like and really open to everything, but the food is always really good. I would rather eat someplace such as this to support these nice folks. Give it a try and you will see also. The pricing is very reasonable and they don´t tack on those tips such as some other places are starting to do.

Been coming down for 6 years this was our first time at Los Bigotes . The taco pastor were fantastic, prices were extremely reasonable, the owners were warm and welcoming, the company who brought here was great. Give this place a try.

“Wonderful Authentic Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

The restaurant was recommended by our tour company representative and he did not steer us wrong. Food was great, we had the guacamole and the enchiladas. The food was freshly made and while maybe not the cheapest or fanciest place, we loved it and visited twice.

“Best Chiles Rellenos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

During our visit to Zihuatenejo I was on a mission to find the perfect Chiles Rellenos. We searched for an entire week. Towards the end of our vacation we decided to take a taxi over to Ixtapa and lo and behold we found it!! Los Bigotes de Zapata!! .The consistency, flavor and presentation was superb. You must try it with beef and cheese. I was told it is an old family recipe and I wish I had it to take back home with me. I also recommend The pork tacos, and enchiladas verde. Friendly atmosphere, clean, and a good value.

I highly recommend and will definitely go back.
Respectfully yours
