Kau Kan Ixtapa

by tadpole1 @, Thursday, January 16, 2020, 12:15 (289 days ago)

Last February, while in Ixtapa, for one of our special nights out, we tried Kau Kan in Ixtapa. We found the food okay, a bit pricey but overall atmosphere great. Coming back this year in February. Looking at some of the trip reviews for Kau Kan from the Spring of last year after we left, many have been very negative in regards to the price, reservations being cancelled, food quality, wait staff, etc. Has anyone been there recently & if yes, what is your opinion?

Other than Kau Kan, can anyone recommend a like restaurant for that one special night out, other than El Faro?

Thanks

We like Galleon at the marina. Good surf n turf, Hotel Las Brisas by its pool and Soleiado across from Park Royal.

Are you wanting to stay in Ixtapa only. In "Z" would recommend Amuleto or El Supuro at Pacifica Grand. They both have a scenic view of the bay. Amuleto, reservations is a must because of being so small.

La Escollera in Zihua. Very good food and a lovely view of La Ropa, the Bay and Zihua. Reserve.

In Zihua: Amuleto, pricey but excellent food and the best view of the bay. Closed Tuesdays, reservations necessary: 544-6222. Or Um Sukh, a new Middle Eastern restaurant.

Tentaciones and Espuma both offer fine gourmet dining with exquisite views of Zihuatanejo Bay.

Screw Tentaciones and Espuma. These are the two MOST high priced restaurants in the area and there is WAY better value and EQUAL views around. People were at Espuma from our place within the last week and the service was lousy and food average.

For those listening both of these place are WAY more expensive than KauKan. Most entries at KauKan are $400 pesos or less, yes drinks are expensive [but they all are]. For the OP....Bogarts has bee a good eat for us for the last three years. No ocean view but the food price/quality/service has been top notch. I HIGHLY recommend the chateaubriand for two. Pacifica El Faro has been good too.

We also seem to have good food and service at Il Mare. However I know others who have not? Maybe we just lucky on the day were there?

An old standby! Coconuts in downtown Zihua! Great food, reasonably priced, great menu and great atmosphere. Ask for Arturo.

And order the Spanish Coffee! It’s a show and a delicious drink! If you have special dietary needs like being vegetarian, they are wonderfully accommodating too. Arturo es nuestro amigo también!

What an extremely rude and odd reply. Couldn’t you just have recommended Bogart’s without trashing anyone?.

Since they opened I’ve enjoyed several dinners at Tentaciones with family and friends, and every single time absolutely everything was nothing short of excellent. Worth every peso. Family and friends felt the same. If you had a bad experience say so, but you don’t. You criticize their prices. All the rest is condo commando jive. When the goal is to have a fine dining experience, there is no place finer. There are plenty of scenic places, and places my wife and I love that most of you wouldn’t. While I like Bogart’s because it’s air-conditioned and it doesn’t suck, it could be anywhere and it is the only place beside El Faro where I’ve had fish with freezer burn. An atrocity to any coastal dweller in these parts.

OK Boss. Just trying to point out to the OP if he thought KauKan was expensive he should probably not go the OUTRAGEOUSLY priced Tentaciones and Espuma. AND YES, I would never recommend either of these restaurants to anyone.

While the wording could have been better, I agree with the sentiment. Serving something that tastes like liver as tenderloin is offside

Tentaciones is outstanding. The OP wasn’t asking about value.How can you say “screw one of the best restaraunts in ZIhua”. The food, service, ambience there is nothing short of outstanding.

Just ate at Kau kan. Food was okay not great but the architecture alone is worth it. Quite an experience.
