“You must eat here while in Zihuatanejo...”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

My wife and I ate here last night based on the recommendation of some other people we had met at the complex we are staying at in La Ropa. It was a short walk down to the restaurant and though the streets are not well lit it was absolutely worth it. The setting is really beautiful and the staff and atmosphere make you feel comfortable right away.
The food here is worthy of anything you can get anywhere in the world - truly sensational. I had the pork ribs which had an amazing sauce accompanying it and the meat literally fell off the bones.
My wife had a fresh fish fillet with a mango and chipotle sauce that I also tried. It was superb. Incredible blend of flavours but not so over-powering you lose the taste of your meal.
The staff are very attentive, easy to communicate with and they make the entire experience even better.
Believe us - even if you only stay in Zihuatanejo for 1 night - eat here - you will not be disappointed.

“Wonderful Family Run Restaurant”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I was happy to see that the restaurant moved into a larger space. The food quality has stayed the same over the years. La Bocana is still one of my favorite breakfast spots in Zihua. Had lunch for the first time during my last visit and wasn't disappointed!!

“Best Breakfast and Lunch”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We usually go to Zihuatanejo twice a year and we are constantly looking for new places where we can eat and relax. We will go to Ixtapa or around some small towns and will usually find a restaurant and stop to have some food. After a while, we will go back to La Bocana and then you realize that the breakfast or lunch is very good and you cannot have a better place than La Bocana and it comes with a nice ambiance and music to match your mood. This is the place where we meet with our friends and we want to make sure we all have a good time. BTW, we are from Seattle, WA.

Wonderful and service. Enjoyed a Sumptuous breakfast at La Bocana. Many choices including fresh juices. Loved the juice combination called revitalization. Shrimp Omelet was very tasty. Staff is competent and prompt. I will return soon.

“Good find”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We discovered this place venturing out to Jungle Pizza (which was just ok). I dont know that its as fabulous as other reviewers make it out to be but it was definitely good and worth going to. Personally, I found the food at La Perla and Dona Prodencia better and with these you are also on the beach, which you are not at :La Bocana. The atmosphere at La Bocana is nice though.
