I have eaten here on many occasions and have never been disappointed. Last week when I ate at Sativa's and had the spicy beef Gyro in a pita bread with tzatziki and it was spicy and delicious. Suzanne the owner is a delight!

When we arrived, only four other guests were in the restaurant. However drinks took 20 min, food one hour. I wonder how they do, if the spot gets crowded... Food was okay but nothing special, even though they seem to try to make everything special there. But if you lack the basics, special is far away. 3 points because of... More

Just walking along after 10pm we had almost lost hope to find a great restaurant that is not just a bar still open. Perfect upstairs location and they had a small band that added to atmosphere. Taco's and Vegetable dishes and drinks great. Service excellent

Although it was a bit challenging to see this restaurant from the street, we are glad we found it! Probably the best spot for lunch at the this beach. Friendly staff, delicious dishes, and also great prices. The spring rolls, mahi mahi and catch of the day (Parrot Fish) were all great. My favorite was the ceviche with the coriander... More

Great place. The tables and seating is set up very nice. Great view of the ocean. Very clean. Service is a little slow, but the staff is very good and nice. That makes up for waiting. Sativa has a great burger. Would go back for the burger and fries.

After your day at the beach, come here to watch the sunset and enjoy happy hour and appetizers. This place is a cut above some of the other spots--it serves vegetarian food and ceviche.

Really, there aren't many places to dine in Zicatela - but the good ones are really good. Sativa Terraza falls into that category with food, service, ambiance and menu offerings. Fresh seafood and a michelada is the way to go.

This is a good option for dinner in Zicatela Beach. The food is good, the ambiance is very good, service depends on how busy is the kitchen. Overall I would say is one of the best option in this beach.
