On a scale of the food we ate during our visit to Zihua, this place was definitely the least impressive. Nothing offensive about the food or service, just not as good as anywhere else we had visited. The views are spectacular, and the menu reflects...More

Beautiful hill top location with view of the bay! We kept it easy and ordered the fresh Mahi Mahi, grilled to perfection. We picked fresh veggies, mashed potatoes and spinach. Simple but so good! The warm bread basket was yummy. The restaurant was packed and...More

As many have previously said... go for the view. As a nice bonus, the food and service complement the “vista hermosa” quite well. We have been dining at IL Mare just about yearly (sometimes more) for 12 years or so and have yet to be...More

Our family of six dined at Il Mare last night, Wednesday, drawn by the promise of a nice view of the bay. We arrived half hour before sunset, without a reservation. We were seated immediately, though not on the railing, which didn’t matter since you...More

I have walked past Ristorante Il Mare too many times to count in the 20 some odd years I've been visiting La Ropa. I have an embarrassing fear of heights and had always been too scared to plunge down the flight of stairs to this...More

Went here for dinner 2 nights ago because of the location/view. That is definitely the drawing card here. The dining room is high above the beach with a fantastic view looking out across the Zihuatanejo bay. The food on the other hand, was OK but...More
