This restaurant was recommeded to me by a local resident. He was right on the money with his recommendation. They have a lobster dish that is incredible and shrimp meatballs that will have you coming back for more. Prices well within anyone's budget.

Excellent bacon wrapped shrimp with chipolte sauce. This is not on the menu, you just need to ask. My wife had a fish filet stuffed with shrimp and cheese. Both of us were very satisfied with the meal and the service. Price was good too.

We read the many good reviews as well as a recommendation from our Innkeeper and decided to try this restaurant. Unfortunately for them, we were the only customers. This was one of the best meals we have had in Zihua! The seafood was delicious. The food was fresh, the service was excellent and the server even brought samples of other... More

We asked a local where we could eat it we only wanted to hear Spanish spoken and not have a bilingual menu i.e. not for tourists. Mariscos Chendo is all about the food - the best food we have had in Zihua. The shrimp and the catch of the day (Baracuda) were fresh, flavorful and very generous portions. Three entrees... More

I had heard through some locals about Chendo's this year. Somehow I have missed it in the past 9 years I have been going to Zihua although we had discovered Lety's a few years ago and loved it. We stay on Playa Madera so Chendo's is a close walk for us now that it is on Calle Adelita. We went... More

So, we took the advice of another reviewer and OMG!!!! The tiritas, coconut shrimp and nutella and strawberry crepe are to DIE for. It was absolutely delicious!! A MUST to eat here!! Be patient, everything is cooked to order. Oh, and we drank the rest of the coconut creme that comes with the shrimp ;-)
