Absolutely stunning position for this restaurant and the ambience and service were excellent. Unfortunately the food is just ordinary and appeared to have been pre cooked as opposed to other much cheaper restaurants around where everything is cooked to order. The giant shrimp were rubber. Snapper fillet in banana leaf better but cold. Still had a lovely evening but it could be so much better. Those reviewers who say they never go outside the hotel really need to go out more!

This is a jewel. The hotel, restaurant and view are unbelievable. We were told to go and check it out. I am sorry it was on our last day. The food, staff, prices and atmosphere were fantastic.

An exceptional place and an absolute must......

Extraordinary views of the bay of Zihuatanejo one a terrace situated high above the crashing surf. Attentive service (although someone should remind the staff that not everyone foreigner wishes to be addressed to in English) but somewhat disappointing food. You definitely pay for the view, not what is in your plate.

Our first visit in March 2013 and would definitely recommend it and visit again.

Entering the Casa Sasan eye opening as you have no idea where you are being taken until you get to the back of the Casa and WOW unbelievable setting! Our waiter was Cesar who was very tentative, knowledgeable and truthful. He gave us plenty of time between our courses to digest and enjoy the view. Food was ok, sablefish was a little over cooked, had better in BC, cAnada,
However, overall the setting of the restaurant makes up for the so so food quality! Definitely will go back.
