Chendos have moved from Adelita Street in the Playa Madera district to the center of downtown close to Bandidos and the church. Same wonderful food specializing in many varying shrimp based dishes. Great friendly service and great value. Highly recommended

Chendo was recommended to us by another tourist. Today, we went there for lunch and had camaraones al gusto (shrimp to taste) and pulpo al gusto (octopus to taste). They were both very fresh and delicious. Their fried banana and ice cream was also very delicious and it was on the house! Great service. The best seafood we had so... More

We use to eat at Chendo's when it was on Calle Adelita. They closed about two years ago and reopened a month or so ago in downtown Zihua on Pedro Ascencio, on the pedestrian walk between the big church and Banditos. We just happened to run into it looking for a place to eat and so glad we did! It... More

Have frequented Chendo;s for the past 10 years....wonderful food. The restaurant moves to different locations and is sometimes hard to find.....but when you do locate it the food is great and so are the prices!

This was one of our favorite places for shrimp but it was not open in the location we knew it in before and none of the neighboring restaurants knew anything about them reopening someplace else.

My wife and I always enjoy our first meal at Chendos. The coconut shrimp are excellent, but the Mahi stuffed with shrimp and cheese is my favorite! After dinner, indulge your self with a nice crepe for dessert.

As one can see from other reviews, what they do with shrimp is wonderful. We found this on a Sunday nite, when many restaurants were closed, this is along the canal, and like most places in town, the look of the restaurant is no indication of the great meals. We had a variety of the shirmp dishes on the menu,... More

The restaurant was closed for remodeling until our last night in Zihuat. We knew exactly where we were going for dinner. My husband had the coconut shrimp and I have the shrimp and cheese stuffed mahi mahi. Was the best meal we have all week. That is not putting down other restaurant in Zihuat, as we did not have a...

Chendos is a great choice for superb shrimp. I usually get the coconut shrimp, but have enjoyed the walnut shrimp as well. Outside of crazy downtown traffic, it's quite relaxing.
