Nueva Zelanda Ixtapa is a great little 50's diner that is in a great location with great prices and friendly service. It offers really good coffee and a very decent breakfast. It has the best green juice in Ixtapa; you can even order it to go for 35 pesos and I did. Enjoy 50's tunes and memorabilia ... there is... More

White wine was served warm. Fresh salad for starters was soaking wet, warm. Shrimp taco's for both of us were served on soggy open taco's with some chopped peppers. Shrimp... More

Just returned from Ixtapa after a week long stint. Some places deserve a review and, so, here you are...stopped by twice for breakfast during the week. Twice because the experience the first time was that good. Juices of all kinds are fresh squeezed/blended and tasty. You can have anything blended, as opposed to what's listed on the menu, so experiment!... More

We ate here for breakfast and it was delicious. It was pretty busy so the service was just average, however the food made up for it. Breakfast had almost like a diner feel to it. Recommend an omelette or the fruit and granola for breakfast. The smoothies and milkshakes were also a treat!

If you are visiting Ixtapa, nevermind if you are lodging under an "all included" plan, it is worth paying a visit to "Nueva Zelanda". This tiny restaurant located in the middle of the Centro Comercial of Ixtapa, founded in 1985 is one of the oldest and most reliable restaurants in the area. The restaurant's main asset is that Pedro Sr.... More

This family-owned restaurant in Ixtapa is the best choice for breakfast. Good service, great juices, fresh fruit and eggs actually cooked to order!

Our family of 5 plus my parents (7 total) ate here several times during our weeklong stay. The food was very good. Not a single complaint from anyone a single time. Each time they treated us to a complimentary appetizer, or post dinner treat. They work hard to please tourists & they did not disappoint. Very clean!
