We went there twice on our last visit. Their coconut Shrimp was to die for! Some of them were the size of the palm of my hand. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all who visit Ixtapa!

Was not expecting to have guacamole made at our table. It was fresh and you got to direct the server how much of the ingredients went into your guacamole. Highly recommend going back.
