Otilia's is amazing and definitely a must stop spot when in Zihua. David and Franco are very attentive and fun to be around. We would come here early and get a great spot in the sun, and have guacamole and snacks all day long. Along...More

Franco and David are the absolute best! Relaxed peaceful atmosphere, great food, excellent drinks and a beautiful view! Hard to ask for much more than that.

We ate here yesterday based on reviews and were very disappointed. The fish tacos cost 150 pesos for 3 mediocre tacos and the bill included beers that we did not order. We won't be going back.

On the beach, good service, excellent food. It is the best beach restaurant, certainly that we have found, at Zihuatanejo. Perhaps because it is at Las Gatas beach and not particularly geared to the tourist trade. It is owned by the wife of Carlos Dive...More

We stopped here on 3 different occasions on our 10 day stay at Zihua. David was an excellent host. The margaritas were the best I had- lots of fresh squeezed juice and tequila. The lobster tacos also were delish. We will be back next year.

You take a water taxi from the pier in Zihuatanejo. When you get off the boat the restaurant is almost at the very end of the beach

This restaurant is located on a small cove and can only be reached by water taxi from the pier. There are about 10 restaurants on this isolated cove. They have no actual address, no electricty, no telephone and all food/beverages are brought in by the water taxi's. Otilia's is mentioned many times under Things to Do on the Zihua Forum under "Las Gatas" and should be listed under Restaurants. This is a very popular place with great food and fantastic location. You can enjoy your meal with your feet in the sand and the very clear ocean water a few yards away. Snorkeling is also available from the white sand beach.
