This is a gourmet restaurant with quality chef and service in the middle of a questionable lot not on the beach. The owners have made a nice setting and the food and drinks are of the highest quality.

La Providencia is a charming restaurant with loads of outdoor ambience and quality food. The steak and shrimp dinners were a favorite with our crew. Not to be missed when visiting the quaint coastal village of Zipolite!

What Javier and his team have created here is hands down the best place to eat in all of Zipolite. A reservation only 5 star restaurant with all the charm, elegance, and panache one would expect in a major metropolitan area. However the stroll in...More
