The food is very good, there were 4 of us we all ordered something different. Each person was speechless with only UMMMMM in response. The service can't complain and the drinks were cold and delicious.

The restaurant is in a great location. The food was fine and a decent price. The highlight of this restaurant is the 'Fat Mermaid' art that is everywhere! The decor adds a lot to a cold beer on a hot day. There is also an excellent 'fat mermaid' artisan shop within the restaurant! It's a fun place.

We had great service and the shrimp tacos were wonderful. The margaritas and guacamole and chips were great too. It was fun to sit outside in the shade and take a break in shopping. The location is right by the beach and the pier which was convenient for a taxi. LA Siena Gorda "fat mermaid" has a sign with a... More

We heard that the fish tacos were fantastic at La Sierra Gorda and they certainly were! There is not much of a view at this restaurant--it is right on the main beach walk, however it faces the Naval academy. The tacos are worth a visit for lunch, nonetheless. Three small tacos were 90 pesos and they were delicious!

I hadn't tried them in the past, but I'm glad I finally did. Nice service, tasty food and unique paintings and decorations. I definitely recommend this place.

Had read about this place in Eyewitness Guide. The only restnt recommended in Zihua. Very disappointing cuisine. Specialty fish on menu were unavailable. Service good but irrelevant when cuisine so bad......

This restaurant is known for a special entree called blackened red fish. When we ordered it they said they didn't have any. So we ordered a hamburger. Sorry we are out of hamburger. We ordered another entree and ate our meal which was only OK. Then I requested their ice cream only to hear "we are out of ice cream".... More

A cozy place close to the beach (check your chair cushion before taking seat, some people go there directly from the sea). Be open minded and enjoy tacos! Mine was octopus taco. You can see two different "salsas": the green one "no pica" ("no spicy", they say, but be careful, it is spicy) and the brave one, so hot they... More

Came here for lunch but our server informed us they did not have many kitchen items to make lunch and we should wait. We ordered beers and turns out no one in the restaurant was able to order lunch. Our beers were also outrageously expensive.

We always come to this place when in Zihua, and so far it has never disappointed. The guacamole, the tacos and the drinks are all good. This time, I ventured to try the camarones al mojo de ajo, however, and it is my new favorite dish: Juicy, tasty, broiled shrimps on a bed of fresh lettuce with a perfect vinaigrette... More
