Open air seating overlooking Zihua Bay. Menu features a good variety and the staff is very attentive. Marcus does a great Strawberries Flambe desert that is a must try.

This restaurant offers very good value for an upscale experience with amazing views of sunset and Zihu. The service was excellent, the complementary bread basket is filled with delicious varieties, cocktails and wine very reasonably priced, Caesar salad excellent. Our disappointment was with the main menu items we selected - the tuna was ordered med rare but came way over... More

Great Food, superb service. Popular so remember to book your table. The view over Zihautenjo just before sunset is lovely. The sun sets quickly and then the lights of the town emerge giving a restful but very attractive look to the bay and the town. They serve probably the best steak in the area. Even 'fussy about their steak' people... More

The spaghetti was so delicious that I had it the next night as well! Deserts were amazing (although a little too much strawberry... More

Great views, excellent food, variety on the menu and the execution is fantastic. For a bit out of the way place above the beaches, this is it.

You simply cannot beat the views and service here! Loved the staff who went out of their way to accommodate us. We dined here 3 nights out of the 8 that we were in Zihua. One of those nights, they were closed so they drove us down to their sister restaurant below. So relaxing and beautiful with a menu that... More

Beautiful from the tables next to the terrace edge. Food bland and so full of cream it was not good. Will not return. Service attentive and made a great effort.

Had dinner at El Suspiro several times while staying in Zihuatanejo. Prices are high but the overall experience is great. The view is second to none, perhaps the best in the area. The service was great as the hostess and waiters are constantly scanninget to see if a drink can refilled or a plate removed. The food is unique and... More

We had numerous meals the week we stayed Pacifica Grand. The food here is very average. The risotto with shrimp was the best thing I at here all week. My husband had various beef dishes was not impressed. Is it bad, no- Just nothing special. But the view is spectacular.
