Find Franco to make your experience exceptional. Try the shrimp tacos with a cold cerveza. Rent snorkel gear and get a guide right there. Ask Franco for a hand made cigar made locally. Perfecto.

We walked the long stretch of sand rimming the waters of Las Gatas, following our friends who swore Otilia's was the spot to be. Our group was large - five adults and four children - and contained a problem customer: me. I have a severe...More

A great beach restaurant, right at the end of Las Gatas. Some feet away from the overcrowded hustle and families on the rest of the beach. The lounge chairs were very comfortable, beer cheap, excellent table service by Franco. Guacamole and nachos were alright and...More

We visited here after reading reviews - the food was pretty good, but portions were minuscule - having eaten elsewhere in Zihua - we concluded that this place didn't help the reputation of giving far smaller portions for the same price to tourists. If they'd...More

We love this restaurant because of the solitude it brings being at the far end of Playa Las Gatas, away from all the crowds. But the best thing on every return trip we make is searching out Franco and getting reacquainted. He provides great service...More

This is an odd little cove. Each restaurant seems to be buoys on its property lines and visitors stake out a seat or table, eat at that restuarant and swim only in the water directly in front of the restaurant you have chosen. That said,...More

Description
This restaurant is located on a small cove and can only be reached by water taxi from the pier. There are about 10 restaurants on this isolated cove. They have no actual address, no electricty, no telephone and all food/beverages are brought in by the water taxi's. Otilia's is mentioned many times under Things to Do on the Zihua Forum under "Las Gatas" and should be listed under Restaurants. This is a very popular place with great food and fantastic location. You can enjoy your meal with your feet in the sand and the very clear ocean water a few yards away. Snorkeling is also available from the white sand beach.
