This place got our attention First because they had Mermaids all over the walls and displays .Art everywhere on the walls was really cute. The guacamole was VERY tasty and the cheese burger and French fries even Good. The staff was really helpful and the prices very reasonable. Nice air fans everywhere to keep things cool and comfortable.

We stopped here on the recommendation of our friends. We were not disappointed. I had my first fish taco ever. How appropriate to have it while in Mexico. It was excellent. Service was amazing. And they let us leave with plastic cups full of margaritas. Going back next year.

Funky little restaurant. The fish tacos and Mediterranean octopus tacos were delicious and a great price. The margaritas weren't very good- order a beer instead.

The fat mermaid art everywhere was cute. It was even in the bathroom sinks. The guacamole was good. My friend had a cheeseburger and fries and said it was very good. I had to ask twice for a glass of ice for my Coke. There was a small shop selling mermaid art and craft items but it was closed and... More

I don't think I have ever been in a Mexican restaurant on either side of the border that did not offer chips and salsa or something while waiting for the main meal. My friend and I both ordered full meals, so I don't get it. The fish could have been more moist, but I do love the whimsical theme, and... More

The shrimp tacos were good but only 2 for the price. Other places there are 3 tacos for that price. We wanted to try it as it was recommended but probably won't go back again.

The menu is limited which can often be a good thing as it often means focus on what you doi best. Not so here, as it was the fish tacos were pretty blah.

I always have at least one lunch here while in Zihuatanejo and I always seem to migrate to the same dishes, e.g., the tiritas and the tacos. On this visit, we tried the surf and turf tacos as well as the shrimp with bacon. Always good. Service is always friendly, but as others have pointed out, matches the slower pace... More
