While we expected a decent but typical Mexican-fare restaurant along this street, La Gula exceeded our expectations and was unlike any of the other restaurants we went to in Zihuatanejo. The chef clearly has a passion for cooking, as proven by the delicate care he took to make sure every plate was fresh and unique! The food at La Gula... More

The chef even came out to talk with us and ask how we enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant also has a good view of the city and Madera beach when the rear balcony... More

The ambiance on the second floor is lovely, the food is delicious and beautifully presented, the service friendly but not intrusive, the menu varied, and the price was very reasonable-- about $50 US for...

After a walk around town, we headed back in the direction of our condo looking for a restaurant that had shelter- we knew the rains were coming- and found a great spot upstairs in La Gula. Open aired, but out of the rain, we watched the storm around us while enjoying a fantastic meal, with service to match. Sipping on... More

We stayed at the bungalows of Rosalba and her family, who also own La Gula restaurant. It was amazing. There are many restaurants on this strip, but La Gula is above the street with excellent views of the town, and much quieter. The food was exciting and fresh, and still reasonably priced. I have food allergies, and they were willing... More

The food was amazing, fresh and nicely presented. The service was great and the people were very friendly. I really like that they recognize... More
