Went for breakfast a few times during the week we were there. Wonderful. I had the omelet and my husband and friends had eggs with bacon and potatoes. They thought it was great. The price couldn't be beat either. Breakfast for 2 of us with juice was equivalent to $10US. Service was amazing. One morning 4 of us got there... More

Do not underestimate this place! This place may not look like much but the service and food are fantastic! Aldo recommended the coconut shrimp and I must tell you I couldn't get enough! It comes with a sweet, mango sauce and it is to die for. The beer is cold and close to the hotels. Check it out!

We enjoy Deborah's for all 3 meals, they have great breakfast lunch and dinner. Service is always great along with the food. Staff are very friendly and remember you from year to year. Would recommend eating here. We don't go all-inclusive at our resort so we can try out all the great places downtown

This is a just a basic mexican restaurant, but it totally hit the spot. The food is fast, cheap and delicious. The staff speaks english, but with a great heavy spanish influence. This is a perfect stop to get some authentic food and not break the bank

Stopped by on the way back from visiting the market and enjoyed some cold beverages, guacamole, salsa and chips. It's located right across the street from the hotel zone and very easy to walk to.

This restaurant was the closest to our hotel. Waiters were friendly. I am vegetarian. They did not have much to offer vegetarians. I ate a lot of tortilla and salsa. On our last day, we had breakfast here. My friend was given her refill of coffee but I was not even offered my refill. I had to ask for more... More

This seems to be a family owned business. The young men speak English well having studied n the states. We had dinner here and breakfast . Great prices. Good food. Good service. Televisions for sports and news. Full bar.

We went here a few times while in Ixtapa. Our waiter was very friendly and gave us excellent service each time we came. The coconut shrimp dish was by far the beat I have attested anywhere!

Finding great Mexican food in Mexico should not be difficult, but here in Ixtapa, it's mostly Americanized Mexican - which is not what I like. Fortunately, we had lunch yesterday at this place. We had the queso fundido, the guacamole, and quesedillas. All were excellent and we'll be back before we leave. The pico de gallo was also very, very... More
