This is a great little restaurant by the main square in Zihau, right on the water. You can eat your dinner with your feet in the sand. If you are looking for fine dining this is not the place. But if you want a great meal sitting by the water this is it! 4 of us had the lobster, which... More

An earlier reviewer was right about the drinks at Daniel's... 2 margaritas is one too many. ;) Our group of 7 had dinner here last night. It's right on the beach (meaning, on the sand). It's near the basketball court in El Centro and Sunday nights entertain a Mexican festival. Fishing boats on the beach, sail boats moored in harbor...... More

The crispy shrimp are fantastic. One word of caution. The drinks are strong. Two margaritas make you wonder how you are going to get home. The music was always great

They remembered us at every visit. Maybe a few things we didn't want them to remember haha. Jackie looked after us to the max. Music with Jimmy was too much fun. Food, drinks and service was always excellent.

We ate here several times last year. One night with a large group and the service was on point as well as the food. Two of us came for dinner several times after to the point the waiter would order my shot of tequila when he seen us walking up the street. Great location fun to people watch and right... More

Last visit to Zihua, this was my husband's and my favorite restaurant. Even though 15 years ago, I remember the fresh fish with vegetables wrapped in a banana leaf. The margaritas, while expensive, were magnificent. You can sit out on the sand and watch the sun go down, while listening to the little wavelets lapping at the shore. It is... More

Had dinner here twice and both were excellent. George and Jaquelyn gave wonderful service. They moved tables closer to the water for our group. We had camerones, filet mignon, mexican coffees (prepared right at your table), fajitas, snapper. All cooked to perfection. Best margaritas on Madera Beach!!!

Went on a Friday evening to have dinner, and see the Bluesman, Jimmy Mamou. We had the Raw Tuna special, and it was excellent. Service was courteous and attentive. Prices are reasonable, and the view is great! Drinks were cold, and well made. The entertainment was a nice extra.
