Fabulous location on a deck high above the bay. Attentive service, but the food is far below the level of another close-by restaurant with sweeping views, Tentaciones. The main course of red snapper was prepared well, but was very simple. The accompanying rice and vegetables were Denny's like. However, the corn soup and ravioli appetizers were excellent. I'm torn between... More

WE had dinner on a lovely evening - obviously the location of the hotel and the restaurant are great selling points The food is highlighted as Mexican / French - uuhm - not quite sure about that - shall we split the difference and call it interesting! A limited menu - which is probably a good idea but might be... More

Food mediocre, lacking flavor Ambiance spoiled by large round lights that detracted from the view of the bay Staff professional and friendly but honestly there are many better choices for excellent food in the area

This is the restaurant at La Casa Que Canta. The wine list is extensive, the menu selections very broad ant the service exceptional. We celebrated our anniversary there and they presented us with a dessert that included our names and their best wishes. It is well worth a visit whether staying in the hotel or not.

Food was average (didn't taste nice, the portion was really small and overpriced). We ordered michelada and they charged separately 45pesos for the beer and 45 pesos for the clamato. However, the music (live music), service and atmosphere were excellent. Don't try the corazón de lechuga salad. It's horrible!!!

We had a wonderful dinner at the Mar y Cielo, which is located inside the Casa que Canta hotel. This is beautiful setting on a cliff above the waves of Zihuatanejo Bay. This is a perfect spot for a romantic sunset dinner. We had a five course meal, featuring traditional favorites like bean tamal, and coconut shrimp, and also one... More

We are here now at this wonderful hotel. It is just fabulous. Service is wonderful. Everyone is so nice and can't do enough. Even though it is high season we hardly see any other guests. For example in each of their 2 pools there has never been more than 2 other people using it at the same time. It is... More
