Walk down to the far end of the beach for a relaxing afternoon. With great local food along with Eric taking care of all our needs, the two days we spent at Las Gatas beach were fantastic. Thanks again Eric!!

Amados in the best place to stop at on las gatas beach! The food, especially the fresh fish tacos and ceviche, is fantastic! And the service is even better! Erick was a fantastic host, always ensuring that we were doing alright and having a good time! 10/10 times I would recommend this establishment to anyone going to Zihuatanejo and 10/10... More

Las Gatas Beach is wonderful, and enjoying it from Amado's makes it even better! The food is fantastic, we had lunch here multiple days and never had a bad meal, in fact, Amado's had some of the best food we ate on our entire trip. I loved the catch of the day tacos, especially the tuna with mango salsa--truly exceptional,... More

Ate/spent the day at two places on Los Gatos beach. First one in the middle took over an hour to get fajitas and they were just so-so. Fajitas at Amados were relatively quick and pretty good. Also not as crowded as the places closer to the pier. And surprisingly, the slight change in being at the far end of the... More

Walk over the rocky trail from Playa La Ropa and down to the very end of Playa Las Gatas to Amados...OR ferry/boat over to Las Gatas from Zihua pier... or you can bargain along La Ropa beach vendors that can get you and your belongings over there in some other means. Be sure to barter. Oscar at Amado's will be... More

First time visit, restaurant located at the end of the trail, great location away from crowd. The food was excellent, prepared fresh daily therefore it took a little longer to get it but it was worth the wait. Staff very friendly and accommodated with our requests. Excellent place I will go again and again.

We've been to Las Gatas many times and never walked all the way to the far end of the beach. We got there today and it was fabulous. Food was delicious but the tortillas hecho de mano were incredible. Service was superb and the restaurant was so comfortable! The waiter spoke perfect English and was attentive without being pushy. The... More

This was our first visit to the beach and we found Amados. This place is the best location as it is at the end of all of all the restaurants. We noticed a lot of people stopping at the first few restaurants but if you walk to the end it is way worth it. At the end it is less... More

We went to Playa Las Gatas to do some snorkeling and general hanging out on the beach. Walking all the way to the end, we were greeted, not by the usual hawker, but a customer who praised the hospitality of this place. She was so right! The manager told us to make ourselves at home, after pointing out the location... More
