We went for supper the day of the earthquake (April 18), the boardwalk had some damage and the entrance portal to the marina was somehow tilted. The staff at the restaurant was the usual friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. We overheard a boat owner on a nearby table talking about the earthquake and how his boat was... More

Lest start with the set up, top of the line wine glasses, impeccable lenin, well polished silverware, and the best presentation at the tables. I have been to el Galeon many times. Loved the atmosphere, because you are in front of the peer looking over 100 foot yachts! The food was amazing, great portions and sauces. The Choice Meat they... More

We have not had dinner at the Marina for many years! The food was excellent - great caesar salad, tuna was fresh and the service was impeccable. Will definitely go again next year!

Felt like your sitting on the deck of an old ship. Loved the table side Caesar salad. Good wine list.

My wife and I had dinner at El Galeon in Feb 2014. The prices were very good and the food was even better. Cisco was our waiter and he was very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone..

My husband and I enjoyed an evening of good service and good food at El Galeon. He had the Beef Medallion and I a pasta dish. Both meals as well as the Calamari (along with the chipotle tartar sauce) were very good. The atmosphere of the marina is very romantic. it was a bit warm at first, but they were... More

We went to El Galeon for dinner. The bill was $45 US dollars for dinner + $40 for a nice bottle of wine. My husband had the tenderloin steak with mustard sauce and he liked it very much. Though the first time it came out very rare and he had to send it back to get it medium. I had... More

We've been visiting El Galeon (located at the Marina) for a number of years. The advent of all-inclusive resorts in Ixtapa has taken a heavy toll on this restaurant (and many of the others here at the Marina and elsewhere). On this most recent visit, we were well pleased with the menu, the quality and the service. The setting is... More

Nice atmosphere at the Marina. The food was good but a over-priced simply because you are at the Marina.
