Lety's has superb food and a great staff. The coconut shrimp...wonderful, but don't pass up seared tuna...out of this world. I also fell for the chipotle cream chicken on noodles. It was also nice that the restaurant is on a quiet street without the crowds and cars.

Lety's is one of our favorites in Zihuatanejo. It is located just over the bridge. We return every year to Lety's to eat the seafood chile relleno as well as the pulpo cocktail. Both dishes are always on spot and excellent. The pulpo cocktail has a sweet sauce and is a great way to start your meal at Lety's. The... More

Hefty portions, great margaritas, and good service. My husband and I each had a couple of drinks and a meal for about $30.00 Unreal.... More

This little restaurant is authentic and provides amazing Mexican and seafood with great service. Lety is a gem. Try the coconut shrimp. You won't be disappointed. From the pier go over the walking bridge and then turn right for a half a block.

We ate here hour first night in Zihua and it was a good experience. Staff were friendly and the owner came to visit our table. Food was good and nicely presented. Coconut shrimp and fresh fish and good margaritas can't beat it

We are at Lety's two times on our last vacation to Zihuatanejo. The food was good and the service was good too. If you like coconut shrimp you will probably like it here! Very fresh and flaky. Lety is usually working and she likes to make sure your visit went well!

Had the coconut shrimp tonight and it was the best coconut shrimp I have had since being in Zihuantejo this year. Will be back soon.

Had a great meal here last week. Just slightly off the beaten path, but well worth it. Had a great meal, and even got to meet Lety who came out to make sure that we enjoyed ourselves. Do yourself a favour if you are in Zihua, and check it out.
