Having eaten at this restaurant on several visits to Zihuatanejo, our most recent meal indicates that the service here goes from strength to strength. The ambience is great ... one floor up from a sometimes busy street in a peaceful, tastefully decorated environment; the presentation is excellent, the hosts genial, the staff attentive and the food prepared with flare and...

We just returned from a 2 week trip in Zihua and dined at La Gula 3 times during our stay ... it was that good! The location and atmosphere of this restaurant is unbeatable, and the staff are also very attentive and friendly. Our server was a wonderful woman named Klaudia who was an amazing host, and recommended various dishes... More

It's a lovely idea and atmosphere. The service is great. But disappointed in several of the dishes we ordered. I wasn't impressed with the fish tacos appetizer though nice presentation. For an entre I ordered a pork chop "stuffed" with bacon and rosemary. It was extremely tough and didn't seem to be stuffed. Our server said she'd let the chef... More

We finally had an opportunity to visit this frequently recommended restaurant. We were not disappointed. We were impressed with the quality, price, and presentation. I've been waiting for some tasty mahi mahi and I found it here. My husband ordered the pork chop. Delicious.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at La Gula last night. We had been there last year and decided to go again last night. We both tried new items from the menu not wanting to duplicate what we had las time . They were both excellent. The atmosphere was exceptional with a full moon overhead. What a treat... More

Leaned about this gem of a restaurant on trip advisor. The entire street that this restaurant is on is worth checking out. Many local eateries and traditional Mexican fare. La Gula was a wonderful experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, the menu varied and the portions just right. The food was amazing. Every course was creative and full of... More

But so glad we finally took the plunge and decided to investigate a new to us restaurant. Food was exceptional...sophisticated taste, handsome presentation. The staff was welcoming. The menu is large enough to have options for all diners. Definitely a wonderful option for anyone staying in Madera neighborhood and worth the trip for those who are not.

The staff are warm, the food is delicious, the plating was artistic. Everything about our evening was perfect! We were so tempted to go back a second night, chose a different restaurant on the same street instead, and were disappointed afterwards that we hadn't spent our last night at La Gula. What a gem! Please go here! It is different... More

Gula offers a brilliant fusion of local Mexican with very sophisticated international cuisine. We had a wonderful tasty meal with several very creative dishes. The Dorado, the Tamal de Mahi were fresh, extraordinary and did not disappoint. The appetizers as well as the entree took a little while while the chef and sous chef prepared every dish. Well worth the... More

We are food snobs. The dinner at La Gula was delicious, nicely paced and graciously served. Off the beaten path in a nice neighborhood a few blocks from the beach, this restaurant has a lot going for it - comfortable space, friendly service, a good cook and fresh local ingredients. We will go back. We shared an arugula and grilled... More
