This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.

Awesome Pizza

A small bar and restraint owned by a Canadian. The staff was very good and friendly. We had a wood fired shrimp and lobster pizza that was mouth watering! Frank comes around and greets his customers which makes it seem more like home. Very good on pricing.

Awesome tortilla soup, great fajitas and decent pizza. Very friendly staff and good entertainment. Hate that they allow smoking on the premises, this is typical of all the restaurants. I wish they would bring in a no smoking policy but I don't think that will ever happen.

We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night. food was, at the very most mediocre. I can only guess it's all the hockey banners that gets people going. Certainly wouldn't return as there as so many great restaurants in Ixtapa.

Read about this place before arriving in Ixtapa so thought we'd give it a try. We specifically went on a night to watch a Winnipeg Jets game. The place was almost full when we got there and quickly filled a few minutes later with people sitting at the patio tables as well as the overflow across the alley. Our waiter... More

Well the food ( Pizza ) was really good... But if you want a drink forget it...We tried to get a second round of drinks because we where waiting so long for our food... but we had to track down our waiter and then it took another 20-25 mins to get the drinks... When we tried to pay our bill... More

Franks has consistently had great food. Wonderful selections. Very fair prices and WONDERFUL PIZZA. His staff are on top of things and Frank himself is there day and night to make sure you are taken care of.

We were staying at the emporio and heard how good the wood fired pizza is at Franks so we wandered across the street to find it. It's tucked in behind in the plaza area "somewhat" close to the end of the flea market. We had a pepperoni and mushroom pizza and a ceaser salad. All of it was so good.... More

Owned by Frank from Windsor Ontario, who is a great guy. Lots of Canadian memorabilia throughout the bar. Great food, great people.

I went on a solo trip to ixtapa, met a ton of fellow Canadians, and we met at Franks at 4 every day. Ask him his story, it's pretty neat!! Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. And the wood stove pizza is to die for. A little tricky to find the place, but we'll worth the hunt!
