This was the first restaurant we dined at during our stay in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. The restaurant is conveniently located near the Zihua pier and has a friendly, inviting ambiance. It is an open-air restaurant and peddlers do walk through and attempt to sell you items. We...More

This is another one of our favorite regular restaurants every time we visit Zihuatanejo. The fish tacos are awesome. And I think they have the best ceviche around! Beware of the very very hot habanero sauce!

Located along the fishermen's walk this little cafe has a nice quiet location and great classic fish tacos. We dined while young navy men whitewashed the railing surrounding their headquarters. Within a short walk of the pier and plenty of fishing opportunities.

This small place in front of zihuatanejo 's ferry stop has wonderful fish tacos! Try the chilorio fish tacos or the pastor fish tacos! The place is not fancy but clean and it's cheap compared to others in the neighborhood!!!
