Coconuts, Zihuatanejo

1 Pasaje Agustín Ramírez
Tel: 52 755 554 2518's insider take:

Ask around: Everyone in Zihua will tell you to come to this restaurant. It's housed in the city's oldest building, the Inguaran family's 1865 hacienda, which was the center of the then-thriving coconut industry. The palm-shaded garden, fairy-lit at night, is bucolic and romantic; the food is neither pretentious nor expensive. Locals rave about the coconut-crusted snapper and the shrimp baked in a coconut shell—but you can actually dine coconut-free here, and well. Start out with the heart-of-palm salad, then move on to charcoal-broiled pork chops, fresh-grilled fish, or the house special: chiles rellenos, potato-and-shrimp-stuffed Poblano chiles on tomato salsa. If, for some mad reason, you're feeling homesick for North American junk food, there's also a bar menu of burgers, fries, and chicken wings.

Open daily 11:30 am to 4 pm and 6 to 11 pm.
