“Good food, but bring mosquito repellant!”
Review of Piedra de Fuego

Piedra de Fuego
Ranked #6 of 31 Restaurants in Zipolite
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 March 2018

I had a great dinner that was reasonably priced here, but I was also on the mosquito's menu. There's a lagoon that has formed just next to the restaurant due to the excessively rainy season last fall and the stagnant water is quite the breeding ground. You won't know you've been eaten alive until the next day. Apply repellant (especially to your legs) and you should be just fine.

This place deserves more business. The food is fantastic, reasonably priced, location obviously the culprit here. Had garlic octopus and breaded tuna, and both were very well made.

Good restaurant at the end of the street. Will likely have very few people in it when you arrive. Fear not. Only recommend ordering the whole fish which is cooked on the open flame. We ordered the fish filet and got very sick--it's not clear if the filet is fished that day or not but we could have also gotten sick from the salad. Same with the shrimp - be careful. Otherwise good food and good prices. The aguas are very good.

belongs to the same family than SAL Y PIMIENTO, very fresh fish of the day and other typical plates; super service

I'm writing this review mainly because I think this restaurant deserves more clients! Because it's off the main strip, at the very end of a side street, it doesn't seem to get much traffic. But the food is very good and plentiful, the service quick (at least when I was there - perhaps because it was almost empty!), and overall it was a great value and relaxing experience compared to other meals I've had in Zipolite! The menu is the standard local fare - various fish, shrimp, chicken etc dishes served with rice, fries, salad etc - but all very fresh and tasty, in generous potions, and cheaper than most other equivalent places. I don't know the name of the street but it runs parallel to the main drag, one block back, and this restaurant is at the east end of it. Pacha Mama restaurant is on the corner of the block, walk past Aperitivo restaurant and a few others, Piedra de Fuego is at the end.
