Fine Dining

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?


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.


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.

Nada es verdad ni mentira. Todo es según el color del cristal con que se mira.
