Zippers has a fantastic location right on the beach where you can watch surfers and enjoy your meal as well as listen to live music. The night we were there there was a very good band doing covers of Jimmy Buffet and classic 70-80s rock hits. The food is good although a little too American. I wish it were more... More

I have visited the famous Zipper's twice during my stay and loved it. The food is great and there is not a dull moment watching the surfers. You can just sit there with a cool drink and watch the activities or decide to take a swim and join the crowd.

While staying at Coral Baja in San Jose you must venture out on the beach for a stroll down to Zippers. It is maybe 3/4 mile to a mile to this restaurant. Walk close to the waters edge. The sand is compact and makes for better walking. Sit outdoors and watch the surfers while listening to a rock band playing... More

What a great place to sit outside, with your feet in the sand (if you want) and have a casual meal while watching the waves crash on the shore. A fantastic menu with a ton of options.

We had held back on this spot, boy were we sorry we had. Re food was great, we went two days in a row. You get a solid meal here, and it is delicious. We walked up the beach, it's a nice place to wander up to. Very friendly to families, several had kids playing on the beach while eating.... More
