Wow! La Gula! What a find as we walked zijua in search of dinner last night! We enjoyed an exceptional meal - starting with a little complimentary appetizer that was just a mouthful of strawberry and pate and a little fresh herb. We find wines always a challenge In Mexico but the house red was awesome and I've included a... More

Had a wonderful shrimp curry here with service to match! Dined here with another couple from our resort who had been here before it was our first time, 3 of us had the shrimp curry and asked for them to make it spicy which they did, the flavour and spice was delicious! Worth a visit if staying in Zih !

This restaurant was recommended by a friend, but I found it quite disappointing. The ambience was good, and the presentation of the food was good. however, for the prices they charge, I found that it was not good value for the pesos charged.

My wife and I recently returned from a couple of weeks in Zihua, and our friend Bill from Pennsylvania was with us at that time. Bill has also owned a home in Puerto Vallarta for many years and so is very familiar with fine dining in Mexico. We had dinner four times at La Gula, and after Bill had the... More

Having eaten at this restaurant on several visits to Zihuatanejo, our most recent meal indicates that the service here goes from strength to strength. The ambience is great ... one floor up from a sometimes busy street in a peaceful, tastefully decorated environment; the presentation is excellent, the hosts genial, the staff attentive and the food prepared with flare and...

The location and atmosphere of this restaurant is unbeatable, and the staff are also very attentive and friendly. Our server was a wonderful woman named Klaudia who was an amazing host, and recommended various dishes... More

It's a lovely idea and atmosphere. The service is great. But disappointed in several of the dishes we ordered. I wasn't impressed with the fish tacos appetizer though nice presentation. For an entre I ordered a pork chop "stuffed" with bacon and rosemary. It was extremely tough and didn't seem to be stuffed. Our server said she'd let the chef... More

We finally had an opportunity to visit this frequently recommended restaurant. We were not disappointed. We were impressed with the quality, price, and presentation. I've been waiting for some tasty mahi mahi and I found it here. My husband ordered the pork chop. Delicious.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at La Gula last night. We had been there last year and decided to go again last night. We both tried new items from the menu not wanting to duplicate what we had las time . They were both excellent. The atmosphere was exceptional with a full moon overhead. What a treat... More
