90 Paseo del Pescador

A jolly fat mermaid (sirena gorda) watches over barefoot beer drinkers from paintings decorating the walls at this casual café—on Zihua's seaside walkway. The tacos pescado al pastor (fish tacos with savory sauces) are legendary, as are the seafood stews and grilled fish.

Open Thursdays through Tuesdays 8 am to 10:30 pm.
