Wonderful sunset, great service, excellent food. Huge portions as well. I had the clams and linguine, others had lamb chops, wife had rigatoni with pancetta. All were very well presented and prepared. Although I'm not a big lamb fan, my buddies choice was the beast I thought. Don't go too early, as that sun bears down hot until dipping below... More

Two couples had dinner consisting of both beef and seafood. A decent wine list with bar. Service slowed a bit at the end probably because it was packed. If in the mood for Italian I would definately return the time in the area.

Got there around 6:30 without reservations and got the primo table for two in the corner and on the edge --OMG spectacular sunset views!! Had to keep pinching myself. Then we had a sweet mature waiter who helped us with the menu. The bread with olive oil and balsamic was great and then we added some nicely presented bruschetta. The... More

Well worth the visit. We went for dinner and we're lucky enough to experience the sunset. The seating is a bit cramped with some tables almost touching. I would return.

Went there a few years ago, returned last week. The food was good, service was good, prices were ok, about 1800 pesos for 4 including tip. That's less than $100 usd. The view is one of the best views anywhere in Zih as we like to call it.

A beautiful view over the bay but also really good Mediterranean food. Salad & pasta both as good as I've eaten in Italy

The view is spectacular. Possibly the best view we have ever had from a restaurant. To top it off, the food was amazing. Waiter was friendly & humourous, and efficient. Four of us each had different meals and every one of them was delicious.

Went to Il Mare in March. Had eaten there several years earlier and for some reason we didn't have a good memory but decided to give it another try. Boy, were we wrong about our prior impression. Nice open restaurant overlooking Zihua Bay. Good Italian food, excellent pastas. We had a delightful meal and will return next year

Revisted this restaurant again and was equally impressed.I had intended on trying something new this time but was drawn back to the Clam Fettucine with wine and garlic sauce.I`m sure there must be a whole pound of clams in it,and it was as excellent as the last time.Can`t wait to return here next time,when I will probably have the same...

Beautiful ocean / sunset view but more importantly exceptional food and service. Pasta and seafood dishes were wonderful. Large portions and rich flavours. Owner came by and checked on our service. Eat here twice on our trip it was so good. Busy for a reason so reservations needed if you want a nice view.
