A lovely meal and get together with good friends in a stunning setting, just breathtaking. After crossing the foot bridge to the elevator, we rode down and we were greeted by warm, friendly staff and promptly seated. Drink orders were taken, but not rushed, service...More

Amazing how they use lights and nature elements to make a beautiful open-air setting with ocean views! The new Kau Kan is in Ixtapa now, built in the cliffs (past Los Brisas resort). Your taxi will drop you off, you cross a beautiful bridge on...More

This restaurant is now located in Ixtapa. What a disappointment. Although the food was adequate, it was definitely over priced for what you got. We ordered a Caesar salad to share, but it arrived on one platter with no additional plates offered. We ended up...More

The restaurant has shut down this location and the building is being renovated into a condominium. The owner has opened a temporary beach side restaurant in Ixtapa. We didn't go, but from the conversions we had it is supposed to be over the top amazing.

The food, quite frankly, was not good (barely mediocre). Actually the bread crisps they put on each table were a crunchy and nice snack. Our main dishes, not so much. One of the best views in the city though. I guess it just depends on...More

We always make room for a dinner at Kau Kan. Open air patio overlooking Zihua Bay. Hardly anyone ever there, how do they stay in business. Very fresh seafood. Polite, attentive service. Not high end but enjoyable

I went to Kau-Kan last time I was in Zhituatanejo and knew that I had to return. Went there with my friends last night and we loved it. The incredible sunset view over the town and the wonderful service were fantastic. We all had a...More
