This family run restaurant is exceptional. We all had shrimp, each dish was unique and delicious. The coconut shrimp were like dessert and dinner rolled into one, nothing was over cooked. We will return!

I've been a fan of Chendo's for the past 8 or 9 years. We've followed them as they've moved all over Zihuat, and mourned them on the occasional years that they've not been open at all. Their newest location is one of their most charming yet. Easy to reach just off Cinco de Mayo and not far from the harbor.... More

This place was just around the corner from our hotel. We were told they have the best walnut and coconut shrimp and may I say, they have the best of everything. We would stop by and pick up afternoon snacks to enjoy by the pool with some wine. Everything is made when you order it right there in front of... More

We mixed our order to have a taste of all three types of ship and sauces. Crispy coconut, smokey chipotle and bacon wrapped. And try the tiramisu dessert (if you have room)

As others have pointed out, this is not on Calle Adelita. It is now in the city center near Bandidos. That said, they do have a "sister" restaurant, Las Adelitas, on Adelita, which is also worth a visit. We both had the coconut shrimp, which were outstanding. Great, friendly service by Jovana (sp?). We were also fortunate enough to taste... More

Chendo was recommended to us by another tourist. Today, we went there for lunch and had camaraones al gusto (shrimp to taste) and pulpo al gusto (octopus to taste). They were both very fresh and delicious. Their fried banana and ice cream was also very delicious and it was on the house! Great service. The best seafood we had so... More
