The food and service were both excellent. The view was amazing. Spent day at the beach. The pool was a nice touch. Definitely coming back to this place.

We spent many hours by the pool drinking margaritas and cold beer. Gorgeous views from the terrace and the infinity pool. We had great steaks for lunch, cooked to perfection, tasty and tender. Great service, a nice place!

Arrived at 6pm. Drinks came at 645. Then they took our order?? Husband had the lobster and 6 small ones came. Asked for butter and they brought it after he had finished his meal. I asked for the red snapper to be frito (whole fried). It came steamed or had been grilled numerous times. Was not edible. Had two bites and left it. A dinner companion had the coconut shrimp and loved them. Dessert finally was served at 845p. I know this is a scenic place to take your time but a two course meal in 3 hours??? There were four occupied tables in total and 3 waiters and a bartender. We must have caught them on a bad day. Cheers and happy eats.

Hi,
We are really suprised of your comment. For the lobster, if you ask for a 1 kg lobster, yes if the divers was not able to catch a one kilo specimen, we will give you the quantity of one kilo of lobster (in you case it was probably 6 halfs . We are recognized for having a great service. I do not know wich day you came, but definitly if it happen as you mentionned, you really caught them in a bad day. I am sorry.
I hope let us have another oportunity to serve you. Normally this is not the way we serve our clients. Hope to see you soon.

We came for dinner mid-week. There were about 4 other tables occupied, all arranged for a terrific view. The food was outstanding. We ordered the seafood platter for two and the bbq platter for two and shared all among the four of us. We also enjoyed crepes Suzette for dessert. Everything was cooked to perfection and we particularly enjoyed the lobster.

The wait staff was small (3) and meticulous in their duties. Consequently and mainly because of one very large party, our dinner took 3 hours from start to finish.

My sister and I walked here from Playa La Ropa. We had seen the Bio Park mentioned in things to do in Zihua, so decided to check it out. It was worth the walk (or cab ride if you don't like hills). We loved the view and Infiniti pool (included in the entrance fee, bring a suit) and the restaurant was also a nice extra for after the tour, but for us, the tour was the main attraction. Celine gave us the full tour, even though we were only two. We learned so many facts about the wildlife, insects and birds around the area. She offers tours to kindergarten classes and really tries to dispel myths about certain creatures. Mexico is as diverse in natural life as Costa Rica, but many do not realize the diversity that surrounds them. Her stories were great and she does a service by taking in some injured and rescued birds and animals. Celine is from Canada but has a love and passion for the country and wildlife since living here for many years. We had a wonderful morning and I would recommend this, and for a family with kids it would be a great outing!
