Very good ambience and service. Food has good taste but is nothing to die for. If you like to have mexican experience it is worth a visit.

We ran into Viva Zapata when we got caught my a storm...what a great surprise! Good guacamole and lobster ceviche. 250 pesos for an appetizer... which was perfect to share with a guacamole! Laidback... amazing inside terrace... definitely a place to stop!

Having read much about this place I really expected more. We felt like sitting in a typical tourist parador. Neither were the waiters very welcoming nor the food remarkably good. Zapata only seems to serve as a brand not as a spirit here. Avoid.

Someone recommended us this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food is delicious, the service is very friendly, and the cocktails are very good also. Try to get there early to be sure to get a table.
