“A must!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This tiny bar/restaurant on the north side of the bay is a gem. The food -- primarily tapas -- is amazingly good, especially the coconut shrimp and the grilled calamari. It's also cheap and the view is spectacular. Only caveat -- cash only, no plastic.

“Great view with a delicious variety of food”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

A must go while in Zihua! Because there were 8 people in our party we were able to try a wide variety of menu items...and we were not disappointed! The Spinach Salad was amazing; different than any spinach salad I've eaten in that it had a peanut dressing. I'll go back to the restaurant for that alone! Our other favorites were the Tuna Tips (Omigosh!) and the Calamari. The Sashimi Blackened was pretty darn tasty too!

“Wonderful ambiance and savory tapas/botanas”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Four of us (Americans) dined at Coco Bahia last evening on a recommendation from another American couple. It was marvelous. The sumptuous menu included everything from blackened sashimi to calamares fritos to salads out of this world. There are several items for the less adventurous as well to include chicken, fish, et. al. Our waiter was accommodating and the service wonderful. Get there early (5:30) as the gringos gather. You will love this. Once we sat down, we noticed that they did not accept credit/debit cards which put us at a definite disadvantage. We were ready to run to the bank though our waiter said, "No, you can pay tomorrow!" We were stunned. We came up with half of the bill (very reasonable), and my husband went back today to settle up. Where else in North America does someone trust you/us like the Mexicans? Highly recommend. Food is fabulous, vistas marvelous, and beer and margaritas to live for.
