We made sure to visit Carmelita's during our stay in Ixtapa, since it was ranked so highly on TripAdvisor. The food was really good, and we really enjoyed some of the fruit-flavored water (we tried the watermelon and passion fruit types). All the seating is outside, but the place is tucked into a small corner near the Zihua city center so it can be a little difficult to find - luckily, our cab driver knew exactly where it was. He said that it was a popular place for the locals, which we knew was a good sign before we got there. The prices were very reasonable, but make sure you have cash.
Carmelita herself even stopped by to say hello and welcome us to her restaurant! We highly recommend stopping by if you're in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo!
