We’ve eaten at this little charmer in all 3 of their locations, and will continue to seek them out. The food is excellent and we’d recommend having a reservation- if you arrive as they open you might get lucky but it really fills up.

La Providencia, although situated along a dirt road in a small beach town, offers fine dining on par with many of the best restaurants of Mexico City. If you are in Zipolite, be sure to make reservations - probably multiple reservations!
