“Relaxing and felt very welcome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

From the first time Adolfo invited us to sample the drinks and cuisine until the night before we flew home, Zi felt like home. Adolfo always made sure we were seated promptly, and the waitresses handled our orders and payments accurately and promptly. We did get a bad bartender on a Friday night; otherwise, the margaritas, pina coladas and mojitos were right on the mark.

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

We visited Zi's on a few occasions during our short stay in Playa del Coco. Like most places in the area, happy hour is from 11am-7pm. The food is great. Appies for $4. The service was good and the bartenders were quick. The margaritas are huge! On Saturday nights this is the party place to be from 10pm - 3am. It is right across the street from Lizard's lounge which is the local party central on Saturdays. Zi's is a more "classy" environment IMO.The front doorman was very helpful and always friendly.

“Zi Lounge Restaurant and Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

Adalfo was great recommending wonderful drinks and snacks after a long day of souvenir shopping. He even let us call the hotel to pick us up after they forget ( a mixup with the water and land taxi services) where else can you find a piña colada the size of a coconut for three dollars ?
