My wife and I enjoyed this place mainly because it was very secluded and it has a pool, the views are amazing but the food is very simple (maybe too simple) and service was spoty. If you are looking for a place to just be on your own and enjoy the weather and a pool we recommend, but if you... More

We went for a late lunch and a swim. The barbecued pork ribs were rather sweet but tasty and the shrimp tacos were typical. The guacamole was especially good as were the margaritas. Prices are a bit higher than some similar places but the view and the pool make up for that. Shrimp tacos were under 100 pesos and the... More

Our hotel manager suggest we try this restaurant for late lunch. It was waaaaay out of town by La Ropa and up the hill (about a 100 peso taxi ride from town.) The view is really phenomenal. Our waiter was completely on-top of it all. Great service. The food was tasty and super fresh. We ordered guacamole, margaritas (super strong!),... More

The food and service were both excellent. The view was amazing. Spent day at the beach. The pool was a nice touch. Definitely coming back to this place.

We spent many hours by the pool drinking margaritas and cold beer. Gorgeous views from the terrace and the infinity pool. We had great steaks for lunch, cooked to perfection, tasty and tender. Great service, a nice place!

Arrived at 6pm. Drinks came at 645. Then they took our order?? Husband had the lobster and 6 small ones came. Asked for butter and they brought it after he had finished his meal. I asked for the red snapper to be frito (whole fried). It came steamed or had been grilled numerous times. Was not edible. Had two bites... More

Hi, We are really suprised of your comment. For the lobster, if you ask for a 1 kg lobster, yes if the divers was not able to catch a one kilo specimen, we will give you the quantity of one kilo of lobster (in you case it was probably 6 halfs . We are recognized for having a great service.... More

We came for dinner mid-week. There were about 4 other tables occupied, all arranged for a terrific view. The food was outstanding. We ordered the seafood platter for two and the bbq platter for two and shared all among the four of us. We also enjoyed crepes Suzette for dessert. Everything was cooked to perfection and we particularly enjoyed the... More

My sister and I walked here from Playa La Ropa. We had seen the Bio Park mentioned in things to do in Zihua, so decided to check it out. It was worth the walk (or cab ride if you don't like hills). We loved the view and Infiniti pool (included in the entrance fee, bring a suit) and the restaurant... More

This place is a hidden gem with one of the better views you will find. Eleven of us went for lunch and spend the day in the nicest pool I have been in in the area. Everyone was very happy with their lunch. Prices were very fair, and you received a lot of food. I was told the ribs were... More

We went because we'd heard there were fantastic views, good food and an interesting tour involving local animals. We were not disappointed. We ate lunch by the gorgeous infinity pool. We each had large margaritas; very large and very strong. You might want to consider the smaller size. I had a delicious seafood soup. My wife had a tasty crab... More
