Restaurant Review: La Puerta del Sol in Playa La Ropa

By: Patricia Ann Talley, Editor.

We are always asked for recommendations for local restaurants. We’ve got many new restaurants, and many old favorites in town. Starting this month, we’re going to add reviews of many of these restaurants, with information about their menus, chiefs, and service.

Puerta del Sol

One of our absolute favorite places to eat 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.

 The view is breathtaking!

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.

Owners Jorge (second from left) and Gaby (second from right), and their crew provide wonderful food and service.

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 will come 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.

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.
