Ask any local in Zipolite for where to get fresh fish and you are sent here to this causal spot on the beach. This barefoot setting is accompanied by plastic chairs and tables, which lends itself to the authenticity and unpretentious nature here, but that’s...More

We went to Sal y Pimienta at lunch time and it was a perfect choice: super nice waiter, delicious fish and guacamole, cold beer, the ocean in the background and fair price. I would go there again without thinking twice.

Great location on the beach. Ate here twice as loved the fish diablo and fish burger. Also do great mojitos. Friendly waiter. Perfect setting at quieter part of beach, not that anywhere is loud or busy in Zipo.

Locals recommend this place on the beach for quality food at friendly prices and I can't argue with that. Large plates of food come with meat/seafood, salad, rice, and french fries. Burgers are large and good. Good guacamole. The fries could be improved on IMO,...More

Sal y Pimienta is a pretty no frills place, but the food is wonderfully delicious. The baked fish in foil is to die for, as are their choices of burgers. Wine and dine in the sand! You will be glad you did! One of the...More
