Waiter couldnt come up with 25 pesos of change. Huh? This was the middle of the afternoon. Welcome to playa la ropa! Why go to this restaurant if the waiters enjoy taking advantage of foreigners?

Great food and a beautiful oceanview, I really enjoy eating at La Gaviota, that's why I keep going back every year. You can't go to Zihuatanejo and not visit this restaurant, I highly recommend it.

Do not eat here. The food is WAY too expensive, and it really is not that good at all. I think the local hotels and rentals have a deal with Gaviota that they will recommend this place to their guest but do not fall for that trick. Really its not worth wasting a meal on when there are so many other fantastic restaurants to choose from.
