Great meal

The meal was excellent. You need a reservation if you want to dine around 7pm. Easy to walk to, don't always need an ocean view.

The service was excellent, we were welcome by the owner and and the meal superb, exceeded my expectations, I will definitely return. The Moroccan chicken was delicious, they have great wine selection and the Cream-Brulee was to die for. The music was a bit loud and the table on the side (two local ladies) smoke during my entire meal.

Upon positive comments from other resorts guests we decided to try the Bistro out for an evening meal. The fish was "amazing" according to my mother. We also had 3 people that had the fillet mignon in Bearnease sauce which was very flavorful. The food has excellent presentation and was just the right portion size to have enough room to... More

Decided to drop in on a Sunday based on other reviews ... was not disappointed. Waiter was prompt and easily handled special request. Menu was both in English and Spanish. Great relaxing, easy going, and laid-back feeling. Breakfast for the both of us was very good and well served. Sweet breads (pan dulce) were good but could benefit from a... More

We made a 9pm dinner reservation here after reading about it on Tripadivor. The setting of the restaurant is beautiful. The foliage and lighting make for a very romantic setting. ALL of the staff were so friendly and professional. I ordered the large shrimp ravioli in a pink sauce with a glass of Chardonnay. Omg was it delicious. So good... More

The food is the best we have had EVER in Mexico. You will know this spot by the the white lite Eiffel Tower located outside this restaurant. Edmund born in Marseille is responsible for the varied food choices on his menu from Lamb Sausage to Greek Salad to seafood and chicken choices as well. Not an overwhelming menu but enough... More

Was really exited to try this place out, given the numerous good reviews here. Got a nice table on a busy night, went downhill from there. Had to replace wine choice TWICE, both bottles were cooked from the heat, third choice was just barely palatable. My entree came out charred black on the outside, almost raw inside ( I do... More

Dropped in for lunch. Pace of meal was relaxed and enjoyable. Food was good, but not unique. In reading earlier posts, it sounds like breakfast is outstanding. Looking forward to giving another try.

After a long and hot walk on Ixtapa Beach we exited onto the Main Street and came upon this restaurant. The place seemed quite busy and very inviting so we went in for breakfast. We were served by Edmond who was so helpful and friendly. I chose the eggs Benedict with ham and you had your choice of soft or... More
