We went here 2 days in a row because we had such an amazing time! We ordered the garlic oysters which were so delicious as well as the seafood bruschetta, which came with fish, prawns, octopus and crayfish! We had really good service and the beach view couldn't be more perfect! We hired the beach chairs in front and got... More

Great location on the beach with wonderful views The food and service is pretty average and not much of a premium price wise given the location Lots of locals seem to like this place

We love La Perla. We got the whole grilled fish and it makes a perfect late lunch or early dinner after a delightful day at the beach. The atmosphere is wonderful and the sunsets are perfect.

We ate one evening at La Perla and found the food to be poor and the service surly. Why go to the beach and eat fish which is poorly prepared and put up with service that is provided by wait staff who apparently do not like their job (or maybe their customers)?

This is a very good choice for lunch at the beach on Playa la Ropa. There are many choices from which to choose, but in my opinion this is the nicest of all of them, but the most expensive. You can choose to eat under the covered area or out on the beach under an umbrella. Most of the restaurants... More

Enjoyed dinner here on our first night in Zihua. The location right on the beach is outstanding. You can sit on the sand if you'd like. We chose to sit on the tiled portion of the restaurant under a palapa with an excellent view of playa la ropa. Enjoyed some pina coladas, cold beer, and a ceviche platter. The ceviche... More

We went late at night, so the kitchen was almost shut down, so I cannot fairly rate the food, but they have large margaritas and they are strong.

The food at La Perla is good. The servicer are attentive. I come to see their bird to be honest. Each year I want to see that he is well taken care of (a large macaw). He is caged, but seems happy, his cage large, and well fed. One surprise this year was they had some turtle eggs and I... More

Went to this restaurant twice. The first time was great, right in front of the beach eatery, so we decided to return a second time. Big mistake. My phone was stolen along with over $200. I used their restroom while the rest of my family enjoyed the beach and drinks. There was no one in the stalls except for my... More

Food: very good and the fish is very fresh. Wine: why do you have to ask for a wine where you could drink fresh coco, or piña colada etc. Service: very good. Price: correcto compared with the quality and service.
