“La Puerta del Sol Restaurant” in Playa La Ropa: A Special Treat for Christmas or for Any Occasion

One of our absolute favorite places to eat in the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area is “La Puerta del Sol Restaurant” (translation: The Door of the Sun) in La Ropa Beach in Zihuatanejo.  Marvelous!  The food is superb in addition to a breathtaking view above the Zihuatanejo Bay.

Hosts and chefs Gaby and Jorge have been friends for a long time.  They have been in the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area for years and have gained quite a reputation and following. 

Some of their most well-known dishes, and our favorites, are their “flambés.” The beef is excellent!  We recommend that you try their Beef Fillet Stroganoff Flambé and the Roquefort Medallion Flambé.  WOW!  Jorge or Gaby comes to the table to prepare the dish right in front of your eyes.


Puerta del Sol Restaurant overlooks La Ropa Beach and the Zihuatanejo Bay.  Zihuatanejo is a fishing village, so fish and seafood are fresh and wonderful tasting.  Try the house specialty, the “Fountain of Youth,” with fresh lobster, shrimp, octopus and fish for two (2) persons.

Between bites, restaurant guests are simply captivated by the moonlight dancing across the waves of the Zihuatanejo Bay.  The view:

Puerta del Sol Restaurant also offers catering services.  Contact them for your wedding, party or special event.

We rate Puerta de Sol as “one of the best restaurants in town.”  That opinion is shared by a lot of local residents, visitors and tourists to the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area.
