Here we go again! Every year someone asks for recommendations for their favorite restaurant for a special evening out..anniversary, birthday, etc. Now it,s me asking! I,m looking for not the MOST expensive, but a creative chef, a varied menu, a great view (in Zihua not La Ropa, ...not just chile relleno, steak, huachinango (which, by the way has little flavor). I know La Gula and Pepe,s son,s restaurant. Others? Thanks everyone and Rob, especially??

No. Casa Bahia is on the water side of road. Coco Bahia is on the high side. Have had no personal experience with Coco Bahia but have heard only good things.

We found Il Mare to be over priced. Also, went to two Greek Nights-- No Lamb! How can you have a Greek Night without Lamb? (Picky I know, it can be hard to find in Z but we have seen it at other places.) Also some years ago, twice in a row when dining there with Mexican friends and speaking Spanish with them and to the waiter, the waiters insisted in speaking English to us throughout the meal. Haven't bothered to return, there are many places as good and better.

El Perla Negra, Casa Vieja, both in the La Madera neighborhood, and Amuleto, above La Ropa. Excellent food, but pricey. Best view anywhere in the area.

My favourite lunch place every day except thursdays would be Fonda Anyeli, west of Casa Marina, and on Thursday’s any place that has Pozole.

Right across the road from Casa Bahia is a lovely restaurant named Coco Bahia. They specialize in tapas (small plates) but they also have main dishes, wine, beer, etc. They offer an outstanding view of the Bay. We have been eating there for years, as we have watched them grow from a “hole in the wall” to a fine dining place, and the food, service and ambiance are consistently good. And you don’t have o sell your first-born to afford dinner there.
