A restaurant needs to be about the food and to a lesser extent the service. Both were lacking. The management is unsmiling and promotes a casualness with the staff. For example, when the waiter came to take the order my wine glass was overturned. He did not offer to replace it (I was charged and paid) nor did he replace... More

We stopped by and loved this place, so much that we have eaten here 3 times in 3 weeks! The Caesar salad made at the table is to die for. We also have had the beef stroganoff made at the table, delicious. The owner and his wife are so nice and the entertainment is great! I would not hesitate to... More

The beautiful music drew us in and the great food and service kept us. The Caesar salad prepared at our table was delicious. Can't beat the view. Have gone 2x already and will likely return for our last night in ZIH

We had the unfortunate experience to dine at this restaurant. It might have been a bad night but the food was not good by any standard. We ordered fish as the appetizer and main meal and for sure it was not fresh, rather frozen and thawed very quickly. There was an attempt to mask it with sauce, without success. When... More

We arrived at Puerta del Sol hoping to catch the sunset and were extremely disappointed. The waiter was great but he seemed a little nervous. The owner came up to us and asked if we wanted a drink but hadn't given us drinks menus. We found this strange but ordered beer off her nonetheless. The food came out quickly and... More

My family stayed at Embarc and were referred to this restaurant from another guest at our pool. He was right, the food and service were incredible. The moment we walked in, George treating us like family. It reminded us of dining in our grandmother's kitchen/high end restaurant in NYC. He perfectly curated a memorable and delightful dining experience. I highly... More

This is our 3rd time in Zihua and we've gone past it every time, finally decided to try it - great location when you're staying at Embarc (Club Intrawest), just a 5 min walk. We were seated right away at a table on the edge of the balcony with a view. Lots to choose from on the menu, a little... More

From the minute you walk in, Jorge makes you feel like you are home! His tableside presentations cannot be beat. The Caesar salad was the best we've ever had. Jorge uses a special olive oil infused with garlic. We also had tableside presentations for beef stroganoff and Roquefort beef medallions. Wow, are we really in Mexico? Now keep in mind,... More
