I don’t think I have ever used “Mexico” and “fine dining” in the same sentence before, but this place changed my mind. Glorious view, attentive staff, and a delightfully creative menu , very well done.

My first visit here was for my wife's birthday dinner. We were most impressed! If we could give more than 5 stars for the service, we would. We were coddled but not smothered. The food is very good. The atmosphere and view cannot be beat in the area. Good value for the money. It will be a very good meal; and, we guarantee a most memorable dining experience. And isn't that what "eating" is all about?

This place is amazing. The views are off the chart and the food incredibly creative. I prefer wine and traditional cocktails to their concoctions. They forewarned us that if we did not like a cocktail (or anything for that matter) to please let them know. I like to experiment, but would probably stay with there very good wine list. Back to the important stuff, the food! It's great! Similar to Cafe Juanita, for you Seattle people;)

Our number 1 restaurant in Zihuatanejo. Amazing food, served as a set 5 course meal. Wine is extra. It will bump the price up considerably. Value for money? Yes, for what you get. Can I eat cheaper elsewhere? Absolutely but you will not be served anything as good as we were served here. Gourmet food. Beautiful setting. Attentive charming staff. Meal price about 3 times the cost of a meal downtown but if you want a special night go here.

Fabulous setting with remarkable food. Perched high above the bay, this restaurant has a fixed menu of 6 courses. This is expensive dining for the area, but the excellent, inventive food made it well worth the cost.

We had a wonderful time there from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The service was absolutely outstanding. It was our anniversary, and they sang and had firework sounds. We walked, which was up a lot of stairs! The menu was wonderful. They only have one menu a week and the chef did it to perfection. The cocktails were also amazing. I had the Tamarind Margarita. We had a shrimp appetizer with avocado, an arugula and spinach salad, red bell pepper soup, mahi magi was the main course with vegetables and sweet potatoes and it also came with dessert which I'm not a fan of but my husband said it was delicious. They also let us relax on the lounge chairs by the pool to enjoy our drink before dessert. The view is also spectacular, but the food and service are the star!

Such an incredible evening!
We spent the night at this lovely boutique hotel and had dinner at the restaurant. Incredible setting overlooking the bay. Fabulous 4 course meal and wonderful service. I had forgotten to mention a seafood allergy and the chef graciously and without hesitation substituted a fabulous filet and a goat cheese tart for the seafood courses. The price for this exceptional 4 course meal was $65,- pp and the wines were reasonably priced as well.
If you want a romantic and memorable evening in Zihuatanejo, this is the place to be! I also recommend staying at this lovely boutique hotel!

I loved our experience at Tentaciones! The view took my breath away the moment we walked in. Everything about the restaurant, the location, and the service was amazing. The chef personally came to speak with us, and inquired about my vegetarian dietary restriction. They were very accommodating. It was very romantic, and we enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommend them.

When you walk in to this restaurant your breath escapes you. The decor and view of the bay is spectacular. You are immediately greeted by your warm host and extremely attentive staff. Each food course is beautiful to look at but also reflects an incredible talent for cooking. The chef's attention to delicious flavor combinations is such a credit to his craft. We felt very lucky to be able to celebrate our anniversary in this special place with such pleasant people. Thank you Tentaciones for making our special occasion a night to remember.

Located high on a hill overlooking Zihuatanejo Bay, Tentaciones offers an amazing five course dining experience. I took my partner here for his 40th birthday and it was a very special experience for us both. The food, wine, staff and views are amazing.
Thanks, Tentaciones, for a very special evening.

An amazing restaurant at the top of Zihautenejo. We have been going to the Zihaua area for over 20 years and this was without a doubt the best, fine dining experience thus far. Every detail was perfect. The view is absolutely stunning and the infinity edging adds such a sense of drama. The cuisine was gourmet and the staff went to great lengths to provided our vegetarian, gluten free guests with the same fantastic dining experience as the rest of our guests. The host & waitstaff were attentive but not overpowering. One word of caution...to experience the exquisite view driving your own vehicle is not for the weak of heart....take a taxi!

After 40yrs of owning restaurant, catering and all other aspects of food preparation, I would like to think that I know something about restaurant business. And yet every so often, in most unlikely place, from most unlikely people you get a most pleasant surprise you can imagine; a restaurant so perfect it can match and surpass world known eateries in major cities. The sunsets and the view are stunning, service under our host Salvador and waiter Edgar was warm, unobtrusive and professional, the food prepared by chef Alex ( only 27yrs old ) was otherworldly . His combinations of textures, tastes and presentation belie his age and short experiance . Tentaciones is a kind of restaurant you visit once and you are hooked for life. Thank you, Merci, Muchos Gracias to all for an unforgetable experiance, We will be back, Soon !!

Our meal at Tentaciones was wonderful - from the spectacular view and open layout to the impeccable and friendly service to the delicious seasonal food (like the shrimp tamalito, the huitlacoche soup and the duo chocolate and dulce de leche tart) to the unique cocktails (tamarind with chile margaritas, yum). They really go all out to make you feel special and the pride in their food is palpable.

This is the best restaurant in Zihautenejo. We have been here twice in the last few years and both times the food and service has been excellent. The food is creative and not the usual. It is expensive for the area but worth it for a special night. And, you can't beat the views.

Terrific views, attentive service and engaged management. I visit here each time I travel to Ixtapa/Zihau. Highly recommended and consistently an excellent experience.

I would highly recommend Tentaciones if anyone wants a fine dinner with a fantastic view of the Bay of Zihuatenejo. The food and the presentation were great. The service could have been better, as compared to other nearby restaurants at the same caliber as this one. Great place to have a very special dinner with friends or just celebrate a special occasion.

The place is incredible, the wiew and the decoration are magnificient. The meal was good but we were disapointed by the main course and the dessert. The cooking of mahi mahi and shrimps was perfect but not original and there was 5 green beans et a small plash of green peas in the plate. We were 4 peoples and 3 of us have no eaten the dessert because it was no good. The waiter has no asked if it was good!!!
