“Wonderful ambiance and savory tapas/botanas”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Four of us (Americans) dined at Coco Bahia last evening on a recommendation from another American couple. It was marvelous. The sumptuous menu included everything from blackened sashimi to calamares fritos to salads out of this world. There are several items for the less adventurous as well to include chicken, fish, et. al. Our waiter was accommodating and the service wonderful. Get there early (5:30) as the gringos gather. You will love this. Once we sat down, we noticed that they did not accept credit/debit cards which put us at a definite disadvantage. We were ready to run to the bank though our waiter said, "No, you can pay tomorrow!" We were stunned. We came up with half of the bill (very reasonable), and my husband went back today to settle up. Where else in North America does someone trust you/us like the Mexicans? Highly recommend. Food is fabulous, vistas marvelous, and beer and margaritas to live for.

Had a great meal again as this has been our 4th time this season. Love the food. Love the view. A little slice of paradise with food to match.

“Great food,great view!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We just ate at Coco Bahia last night. Great little place for dinner, a bit off of the "tourist path" in downtown Zihuatanejo. Nice selection of food to satisfy anyone. I had the coconut shrimp, which was awesome! My husband had the fettuccini with chicken. Also, had the mixed salad. Very fresh!

“My idea of heaven”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We returned to the newly extended Coco Bahia and it was just as good as last year, except slightly larger. And they remembered us and welcomed us back. They now (in addition to the small restaurant area downstairs) have an upstairs terrace with tables and also a long bar where you can sit and gaze out over the bay, making a very idyllic and romantic setting.

The food which we ordered - a selection of different tapas were varied and absolutely delicious as was the bottle of white wine and the tequila we had to finish the meal.

This is just the sort of restaurant I strive to find around the world and rarely do. Small, intimate, fantastic view, wonderful food and friendly, helpful staff. Long may this restaurant continue.

“Awesome view of bay”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

This cute little restaurant built a new upper level which gives you a great view of the Zihuatanejo Bay. Their food is very tasty and the people working there are very friendly.
