My husband and I decided to re-visit this beautiful restaurant with our 9 and 10 year olds just last week. He proposed to me here almost 20 years ago. It is lovely and magical as always. The scenery is unbeatable and the food was superb. Service was great too. A word of caution though, there are a lot of steps and there really is no way around this as this restaurant is recessed into a cliff overlooking the ocean.
Normally children are not allowed but we were not notified of this when our reservation was made. I can understand why as it may be dangerous and the ambiance is very subdued. Luckily our children are very well-behaved but can see why this is a rule.
Everyone should come visit once in their lifetime. Come at sunset, honestly it doesn't get much better then this....

Excellent food and service. Spectacular view. Many good menu choices. Pricey for Zihuatanejo, but worth it for a special night out. Hotel architecture is very impressive.

Wonderful evening from start to finish. The view , to start , mellows you. To look out over the bay is something you don't want to miss, it's a different perspective, the Architecture of this beautiful establishment is unique. It is a winding path to get to the restaurant which visually leads you through intimate areas to enjoy and leads you to the restaurant. The food is amazing! I had a Skate wing which was poached and finished with a white wine sauce and sauteed squash. The guanabana cheese cake was so different and creamy. Romantico. Thank you.

We saw the hotel from the beach and decided to check it out. We were so glad we did. The hotel is beautiful and the outdoor restaurant high above the beach on a rock bluff overlooking Zihua and the bay made for a romantic evening for my wife and myself. The service was good though not amazing and the food was well-prepared and upscale. We recommend it.

Great food, beautiful view, lovely atmosphere. The service is magnificent. A very romantic location to spend a evening with a love one. The bar is set on the lower level with a great view of Zihua bay.
