This restaurant is now housed on a yard on the road to Zipolite beach. It looks similar to the roadside familyrestaurants in Mexico with a big corrugated roof over a plantfilled courtyard. However, the decor is eclectic, oaxacan angels, papel picado and huge, slightly provocative paintings.
The menu is heavy on the seafood, but their is meat dishes, salads and appetizers. All dishes have a regional flavour, but a distinct creative modern touch. The food looks pretty and tastes great!
Try the goatcheeseempanadas, subtle flavour in crispy filopastry. It doesn’t get better!
There is a nice predinnercocktail list, dessertlist is short but sweet and my only wish would be the addition of a few artisanal beers!

Because the last message is more than a yeur old i wilt gave a new judgement.
First time in Zipolite and of course alsof the frist visit to the restaurant.
Nice interieur, very friendly staff, good dishes. So, all the ingredients for a well tasting, pleasant diner allthough i asume that the menu didn't change very much in the last 5 or 6 years (after reading the comments.of years ago)
But overall: go there and you will have a wonderfull experience

The fresh catch is what you need to order. We had the Tuna and it was the best freshest Tuna I have ever had.

La Providencia offers a romantic vibe and rather elaborated cuisine that's apart from the otherwise delicious elemental dishes available in town. Not an everyday place, special.

Went here with friends who frequent here. Party of 6. Food was really good and nice to see selections outside the 'standard fare' here. Enjoyed the appy of shrimp turnovers and the fish was really good. Cooked perfect. My hubby opted for a pork tenderlion dish and it too so good.
Highly recommend this hidden spot for a great meal out.
