It is worth walking away from the crowds to get to Otilia's restaurant. The service was excellent. David made some great suggestions for our lunch and was attentive but did not hassle us at all. Very friendly. The food was fresh and tasty. The spot was perfect, quiet, no loud music, no crowds, front row loungers, table and seats facing... More

We visited here after reading reviews - the food was pretty good, but portions were minuscule - having eaten elsewhere in Zihua - we concluded that this place didn't help the reputation of giving far smaller portions for the same price to tourists. If they'd not decided to do this, would probably have been a far better experience. Unimpressed -... More

We love this restaurant because of the solitude it brings being at the far end of Playa Las Gatas, away from all the crowds. But the best thing on every return trip we make is searching out Franco and getting reacquainted. He provides great service and makes us feel like one of the family. We've been back every year or...

Otilia's is near the far end of the beach - but is certainly worth it! Food was delicious - especially the coconut shrimp! Drinks were well mixed and tasty. Service from David was superb! David took great care of us and got us our fins for snorkeling. It was a very busy day as it was a federal statutory holiday... More

We visit Zihua every year and it is our biggest delight to visit Las Gatas Beach to visit Otilia restaurant. The beach is gorgeous, the chairs are comfy, and the margaritas are perfectly potent, but the best thing of all is our friend Franco who serves us there. Franco is friend to all and really understand the value of relationship... More

This is an odd little cove. Each restaurant seems to be buoys on its property lines and visitors stake out a seat or table, eat at that restuarant and swim only in the water directly in front of the restaurant you have chosen. That said, we were on a fishing charter boat that dropped us off for a few hours.... More

Great Beach and lunch. Coconut Shrimp was awesome. Tons of flavor. Highly recommend. Check out this Pina Colada.

This is our second time to Ottilia. Great food and the service was awesome! Both years we've had the same waiter, David and he's the best! When you first arrive on the beach you will be bombarded with offers. Goto almost the end of restaurant row and look for red umbrellas and poinsettias on the tables.

This restaurant is located on a small cove and can only be reached by water taxi from the pier. There are about 10 restaurants on this isolated cove. They have no actual address, no electricty, no telephone and all food/beverages are brought in by the water taxi's. Otilia's is mentioned many times under Things to Do on the Zihua Forum under "Las Gatas" and should be listed under Restaurants. This is a very popular place with great food and fantastic location. You can enjoy your meal with your feet in the sand and the very clear ocean water a few yards away. Snorkeling is also available from the white sand beach.
