I stopped in for a cold beer after a tour to Petatlan, so really this review is about La Playa Bar downstairs, but it's the same business.. Really friendly service and as a sports bar, plenty of TVs.

We have the lasagna which had been microwave. It was a disappointment. It was served with a garden salad that was heavy on the dressing.

We agree that this is a must stop. And that the coconut shrimp is to die for. And a cold beer is served immediately. We ate dinner here several times during our December vacation. The service is superb. Loved sitting upstairs on the balcony with a breeze. Very highly recommended.

This is a must stop. They advertise the best wings and best burgers in Zihua and they are right. Very inexpensive and just good food and great service.

If it's Gringo food you are craving this is the spot. Great meat and veggie burgers,( pretty hard to find in Z.) salads, chicken wings etc. Less cigarette smoke upstairs but the bar on the main level has plenty of hard drinkin' chain smokin' sports lovin' loud gringos. The stairs are a consideration if you over indulge.Good service.

I have traveled extensively in Mexico on the mainland and throughout Baja and keep coming back to Tanya for the burgers! Couple the burger with some crispy onion rings and we are in gringo heaven. Thanks Tanya!
