Food here is always tasty - it's a good "go-to" place when walking through the shops and stalls of Zihua. All the typical dishes are on offer, along with a few specials; the guacamole is especially good. Another reason I really like this place - I've had some great conversations with Carlos about tequilas, and he's made some good recommendations to me about new things to try. He denies being an expert - according to him the guy you REALLY want to talk to is Jesus behind the bar - but his friendliness and willingness to spend time shooting the breeze with dopey gringos is greatly appreciated.

We had dinner there several nights during our visit to Zihuatenejo over the New Year Holiday. The service was fantastic, very friendly staff, the food was all that we expected and more. My wife had the Ahi several nights and I had the sliced rib eye steak dish that was amazing. The salsa is made fresh at your table, mild or spicy depending on your desires. They were even showing the NFL playoff games on the weekend which was not easy to find in Zihuatenejo. The drinks were great.... my wife had several of the "sexy mama's" as they are called. If you are in Zihuatenejo this is a must place to eat.

This was by far the best restaurant we found regarding its quality food , service and pricing. We did return due to the fact there was not a lot of other options that compared in any way.

Two years ago we went to this place about 5 times. This year we only went once and it was just not the same. The shrimp avacado is off the menu (it was our favorite), but the salsa is still made at the tablle. Mexican medium is really a Canadian hot, but still good. Great margarita's still but the main course choices were limited. The music was good, however a lot more on the mellow side and expecially for a Saturday night. Not sure I will return next time.

Bandidos is a fun place to watch the games as well has do some dancing later in the night. The food was great. The cucumber martinis were great...no hangover! We stopped by twice during our last trip and will be back during our up coming trip! Looking forward to it!
