La Providencia is hands down the best of many great restaurants in Zipolite. Paco and Javier have created a warm, welcoming environment and delicious menu. I have always had great experiences here. Don't forget to make reservations.

This restaurant offers the most sophisticated menu in the area. Food is expertly prepared and presented. It is very popular so you need reservations but definitely not to be missed. Try the chayote soup.
