We always went to Elviras w/ large group (18-20) for New Years eve. Same this year except new name-Cantinita. Staff same , different chef. Set menu was lobster and pork for New Year, but we requested huachinango and the chef prepared eight for us. Great service, reasonable prices and best spot for fireworks.. Very nice evening

We decided to try the lobster, it was amazing. Waitstaff was on top of seeing that we were taken care of during our time at the restaurant. Would highly recommend this place.

Wow! Zihuatenejo has many excellent restaurants, but La Cantinita is my favorite! Each dish is prepared to perfection by their talented chefs. Try the dorado filet "Vidalia" style, a super fresh and thick piece of fish prepared with an exquisite dusting of chili. Or the shrimp and spaghetti special, prepared tableside, is superior to anything I have eaten in Italy, Creative salads and side dishes given attention to taste and presentation, Great service and live music in a quiet walkway by the bay. Don't miss this gem.
