This cliff side restaurant has an amazing view of the water. It is perched on the cliff, overlooking the ocean. The food is simple and good; most importantly it is served hot. The service is excellent and friendly. Great for a romantic dinner or group of friends.

Beautiful view, outstanding service, and even better cuisine. Very reasonable in price. Around $60 Usd for bottle of wine and 3 courses for 2 people.

Stopped by during the day and requested a table at the balcony railing for that evening. As it turned out, it was not crowded that evening and we were promptly shown to our table with a great view. Attentive and professional service. I've been here a number of times and have always enjoyed it. We split the tuna carpaccio which... More

A beautiful view and moderately priced entrees. The others in my party had pasta, the marinara sauce was delicious.

We were able to visit Il Mare again and were not disappointed. The pasta and chicken dishes were particularly food. The view is fantastic and the service and personal are great.

We have been to Il Mare many times, and we always save this restaurant for our last night of vacation. The view is gorgeous and the food has never disappointed. It is a relaxed, romantic setting (they never try to rush you through your meal) and has always been a perfect end to our treasured time in Zihua. Molto speciale.

Went with a reservation at 7 PM. Arrived early sat immediately at our requested table. Then we sat and waited. After 10 minutes we flagged down a waiter. More minutes and we received menus. Ordered a bottle of wine and it arrived soon after. We chose 3 salads, the Athena (lots of fresh vegetables, nice dressing), the Greek (good size... More

This seems like an old-fashioned Italian-style restaurant with dining on the balcony overlooking the bay and sea. The staff is experienced with the menu of items that seem to be tried-and-true signature dishes. The calamari starter was devine; not fried which was nice. The sautéed shrimp and peppers on steamed spinach I had was delicious!

Excellent food. Excellent service. We hope to return before we end this trip. Also superb views. We had the fish special. I recommend the sautéed spinach as a side dish.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times in our last couple of trips to Zihuatenejo. My husband always and I do mean always orders the same dish: the salmon pasta. He swaps out the bow tie pasta for linguini. He never wants to order anything else. This trip I have ordered the insalata pomodoro two nights in... More
