Any's is good, Any's is reliable, but Any's is over priced. It is at Tourist Ground Zero in Zihuatanejo Centro.
We decided pozole would be a good thing for supper, and we were right. A medium pozole is $90 peso. It does come with a lot of supporting botanas, but many were not in their prime of youthful freshness. Sra. Cuevas had a pozole blanco and I a verde. Both were loaded with pork or chicken and sabrosos and were fully garnished to dress to your taste.

Zihuatanejo, Centro, Calle Ejido #18 (Frente a Banamex)
|Beach entrance to El Manglar|
Besides its pleasant, just off-beach setting, El Manglar is noted for its wildlife. Some colorful dining companions emerge to entertain you.

|Grilled Fish Tacos|
But you can order simple seafood or grilled meats. I ordered Sesame Crusted Tuna, but had the chef leave off the Pecan-Coconut Sauce (Really; who dreams up these IHOP type creations?). Instead, I got a simple mojo de ajo sauce, on the side. The tuna was done to my taste and the vegetables were cooked al punto as well.

Price: $$. Our cuenta was $610 pesos, plus tip. But we had a several drinks and an extra dish*.
Ambience: Jungle Outpost with beach close by.
Restrooms are clean, modern facilities, out back, secured by vigilant security personell.
*Desserts were again limited to CREPES. (Must be a frozen crepes distributor in the region.) We had seen an adjoining table get this other, great looking dish, so we also ordered it, as our "dessert".

I'll post a map so you don't get lost and eaten by crocs.

Great looking pictures, we are defintaly going to try this place, especially since the calimari looks like it still has some flavor and body left in it. I have found so far, all the calimari I have ever had in Mexico is overcooked and totally dry and unedible. Seems they like to cook it like cicharones and have no idea that something could taste good flash friend in a minute or two. For some reason Mexicans (as a whole) enjoy eating way overcooked meats and other items that have better flavor and texture when served rare to medium rare anyway. Glad to see the crusted Ahi, too.
I suspect the crocs would prefer the fish tacos to a mealy tourist.
