“The best Happy Hour in Town!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Was passing by and decided to walk in. I saw live music, people well dressed and decided to have a drink. ( I thougt it was going to be expensive) It was 6:30 pm. I sat in the back ( the launge área) with 2 AC units and two large 55 inch screen TV’s.
The bar tender told me about their promotions right away, which i could not believe. Beers at 15 pesos, vodka rum gin for 30 pesos 2X1 prices! Then their tapas,bubble fridays and ladys nights; it was awesome ( internet too) so I took all my friends and had an amazing time! ( Saturday free Salsa Class!!) for all of us “non coordinated people” loved it! Then ofcourse we had to try it for dinner, and try the other side of the coin, EVEN BETTER! Amazing food, service and all of what a fine dinning restaurant should have. Met the Manager, and all of his team which work amazigly together. Really cant say more about the restaurant, the best in Zihua!

“WONDERFUL MEAL, GREAT ATMOSPHERE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

We spent our last evening in Zihuatenajo at Coconuts for dinner. Although the price was quite expensive for a restaurant in Zihuatenajo, you'll find it's worth it. The quality of the food is five stars. Although Coconuts is in the middle of Zihuatenajo, the setting inside is quite secluded. You have the option of sitting outside, which we did, or inside. The wait staff was exemplary! Not overly bothersome, they were a constant presence in the background, far enough away as to not intrude on our conversation but always watching for anything we might need...to refill a glass or take an empty plate. Their English is very good. Because it was somewhat warm the night we were there, the wait staff put out an electric fan out a table or two away that helped keep us cool so we could enjoy our meal in comfort. Juan Pablo, one of the members of the family who owns the restaurant, came over and talked to us. By the time we left that evening, we felt like family! There wasn't a dish that we didn't love and we tasted each others' meals to try to figure out who had the best. But they were all equally splendid from the tenderloin state to the ravioli, the chili relleno the salads, deserts, side dishes...all perfectly seasoned and cooked. I've eaten at better restaurants in the U.S., but they cost more than twice as much.

If you're in Zihuatenajo and want to have a spectacular meal in a perfect setting, walk the few blocks from the beach, sit down, and relax at Coconuts. You won't be disappointed!

“Incredible atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

I really like the restaurant because of its incredible atmosphere and outstanding service. Live music, wonderful green patio in the fresh air where you can feel like in a luxary home, nice people, great design. They might need to have a bit more vegetarian food, but even the simple vegetarian things that they can offer and inprovizations of their cheff are just great! In short words Thank you, Coconuts´ stuff for your incredible atmosphere!"

“Outstanding Every Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

Coconuts Restaurant has a Simply Marvelous Atmosphere, Food, Presentation, Service, Entertainment. Coconuts and the Staff have been one of the highlights of my time in Zihua. Juan Pablo runs everything like clockwork, he implements all you can imagine to make your dining experience a pleasurable event. Each time I have ordered a dish it was excellent, fresh, and the presentation was lovley, not to mention how savory and yummy. My favorites are the palm of hearts salad, the porch chops and the coconut shrimp. The caliber of music has been superb as well. I would highly recommend Coconuts in Zihuatanejo, either to sit at the bar or eat in the open air dining, it's an experience for all the senses. Do go, relax, enjoy, have a drink and let them take care of you. Thank you Juan Pablo and Staff ~ see you all next year and thanx, gina
