The service was horrible and the food even worse. Should've known this place was awful since there was only one other table of people there. My coconut shrimp was inedible. I couldn't even cut it with a knife. The shrimp was old and had a freezer burnt taste to it. The baked potato was grey and had obviously been cooked... More

We were the only people there for supper. You could only ask the waiter for one thing at a time, or he couldn't remember. I ordered pasta and was not asked what sauce I wanted. My fettuccine was spaghetti that was obviously not stirred while it cooked, as it was clumped together in spots and not cooked.

Went there for dinner. We had the Whole Red Snapper and Fillet. Food was not good. Be aware the waiter pads the bill as it did not add correctly. When I questioned him he said it included the tip. Can’t see them in business much longer. Avoid.

We have eaten here in past years. It has generally been an easy stop if walking from our condo. We did the same this year for the first night, after traveling all day. The waiter I recognized from past years, but the service, not so much. He just seemed tired and not up to it. Happens. But the food was... More

Sat down for lunch and ordered steak and lobster and shrimp and steak came with soup or salad and either pasta or baked potatoe for 25 USD per order. Miguel was a fantastic waiter, he was eager to please and spent a lot of his time teaching us how to say things in Spanish. He tried very hard to make... More

Wow! Horrible service, mediocre food, overpriced. Didn't think it could be this bad in Ixtapa. No excuses, we were one of only 2 parties.

Have tried this place a couple of times now and it still is not up to par compared with other restaurants in the area. Food is just acceptable and priced a bit high. Service ... none really, had to keep flagging down servers to get anything. Atmosphere is OK, on the edge of the main square with a lot of... More

Never anybody at the restaurant but we had eaten there on a previous trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. Coconut shrimp - awesome - Surf and Turf Fajitas - excellent. Prices are better than most and service is great!

Just the oddest experience in service we've ever had. Went with group of seven. The restaurant was attractive enough - and the greeter said we'd get 2 for 1 drinks, so we tried it. On the positive side, the food was mostly ok. I had the enchalada, and as long as you love cheese (I do), it was pretty good.... More

I usually drink espresso at Kaldi across from this place. Yesterday, i decided to eat there... ok, i did not have any expectations and i am glad that i did not! Nothing to write home about. Mediocre food, high prices, service was so so, it seems that the waiter was pushing himself to do the work. My table had a... More
