Someone once told me "one of the oldest" is La Casa Vieja. Check Rob's listing under restaurants for more info. Disfruta!

Garrobos. Casa Elvira. The Linda Vista restaurant at Hotel Catalina. Jaiba Feliz. Cenaduría Antelia. Los Braseros. These are some of the longest established restaurants.

Although it probably hasn't been a restaurant all that long, we've heard that the building housing Coconuts is one of the oldest in Zihua. It must have been an impressive home in the day.

It was a military barracks and warehouse for coconuts.

I have a cute Casa Viejo story. We were standing at Glorias which used to be on the La Ropa road when Dave Moffit came in and told us about the place he was opening. We were invited to the grand opening by someone that we knew. We attended it and almost everyone in town came. J.J. had to come in and help Dave with the food and drinks. Free food, free beer. We ran into Dave about 2 weeks later and asked him how many people came back to eat there, and he said none. Ah Zihua!!!!

What about La Sirena Gorda ? It would date back to 1985 according to their Instagram. We do like to go there a couple of time each season.

Puntarenas was the first main one than La Sirena Gorda from my recollection of times there in the 80's. Puntarenas was a favorite of mine and I was sad to see them gone. I had an awesome meal just before they closed.
