Great food, basic, authentic and well prepared. Service was impeccable. Prices very reasonable, even with wine. We had dinner here twice during our recent visit to Ixtapa. No issues, would recommend.

Good food. Good service. Good atmosphere. The one BIG problem is they have this cute play acting where they say your credit card is no good. They want cash. They even bring out the credit card device to show you the display that says rejected. When I called my credit card company I was told that no transaction was attempted... More

Have been going to Ixtapa for a number of years and discovered this favorite place for breakfast and dinner on our trip last year. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. Gina, the owner is there to welcome you during the day and her husband is there in the evening. They are both extremely gracious and remember you if you... More

This place is real Guerrero seafood, Red Snapper and Mahi Mahi with wine for 2 for about $42 US. You can't get better service - there are 3-4 people watching over your table. Traditional and excellent but not much for those seeking some adventure, a new twist.

This trip was our first time in Ixtapa and we were looking forward to some good Mexican food, especially fish dishes in a town right on the Pacific. This restaurant was recommended to us by other frequent travelers to Ixtapa as well as our hotel staff. So needless to say we expected a lot. First, the Casa Morelos is located... More

One of our first stops when we are in Ixtapa. The coconut shrimp dish with mango sauce is a good bet. Also had the Mexican 'sampler' plate - tasty, competently prepared food. On our most recent visit, we were served complimentary tamales. They were good but seasoning was a bit on the weak side. The restaurant used to have the... More

This has been our favorite, relaxed, great-dishes restaurant since we first tried it in 2001 (and we've been coming to Ixt/Zih for 27 years!). Folks are friendly; food, superior and fresh; Javier, the owner, is suave, debonair and a sweetheart! He truly cares about each diner. I am so upset that Jan from Canada thinks he was ripped off by... More

This restaurant was within walking distance from our terrible Resort, Tesoro (dont stay there!!) Although the resort offered 3 meals, as it was All Inclusive, we often opted to eat out as the food there was pretty mediocre!! Casa Morelos was the first place we dined out at when we saw their fish menu. Mostly everyone was happy with their... More
