We started going here with our kids in 2001 and come back every time we visit Zihua. The two hosts are gracious and work very hard despite the lack of tourists these last couple of years. The addition of a great guitarists/vocalist has once again filled the tables which I think is great for Jorge and Gabby. I really love the roquefort flambe and the caesar salad - both prepared at the table. A bit more upscale than our usual haunts in Zihua but very reasonably priced considering the quality.

Someone recommended La Puerta del Sol the first day we arrived at Zihuatanejo.
Once we sat there and saw the view, felt the atmosphere and heard the music, we thought that was it....but the food is even more impressive is and the reason we went back 3 times.
There is a very talented jazz signer making the ambiance perfect.
This restaurant offers flambés like nowhere else....steak, seafood and to end your meal, bananas and coffees....you will be amazed by the way the owners will make your Spanish Coffee...
Service is great and always with a smile....you will enjoy!

Be sure to go to Puerta del Sol at sunset. The restaurant has a great view of Zihuatanejo, especially as the sun sets. Food here is imaginative and while not "gourmet," it is very tasty and fairly priced. This is a good place for a couple, family or group. Flaming drinks, coffees and desserts are their signature and are typically done with great flair as the lights are dimmed and the owner or Gabbie pours flaming liquid from glass to glass. They also have a singer whose name is Patricia Carrion who sings her own (as well as other) songs. Her voice can be described as smokey, bluesy and original. It's worth a trip to this restaruant just for the singer.

We have walked past this place for years and decided to try it out upon recommendation. 6 of us went for dinner and thought the service was a bit slow to begin, we were not disappointed. The owner Jorge does it all. He flambés and makes the best caesar salad in front of you. The restaurant is small and intimate and not as expensive as the neighbouring ones. At the end of the meal we all had a complimentary shooter banged down on the table. Patricia Carrion, is a singer from Mexico City, fabulous. Making the evening a good choice for us all
