Last visit to Ixtapa Blue Shrimp was barely functioning (2013) now up and running with nice ambiance....twinkly lights and a few tvs with sports programming running. We had two different entrees and both seemed slightly underdone. Not the best visit. Too many other great choices to bother going back.

Lots of positive reviews for this restaurant in Ixtapa, but that was not our experience. Service was very slow. We arrived before 6:00 p.m. for dinner, which was at least half hour before the dinner rush. We ordered two margaritas to start and waited well over 10 minutes before they were served despite the fact there were no other customers... More

We ate here twice as my son is fussy but since I wanted him to try Mexican food we opted for this place.

We haven't been in a while, but, as before, very personable wait staff, really good food. The shrimp flambe was both fun and delicious. As is most everything in Mexico these days, very, very inexpensive with this exchange rate.

It's called the El Camaron Azul or The Blue Shrimp. It was a birthday lunch for me, with daughter, after a great invigorating bike ride on the cyclopista to Playa Linda (don't miss this...a bike rental is located right beside El Camaron Azul. Edgar was our server/host and was great to talk with as we tried out our limited Spanish,... More

Went here with my dad for his birthday lunch. 129 for a large lunch of shrimp with bacon and mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes, onions and green peppers, served with beans, rice, and tortillas. Great "2 for 1" drink specials. They even gave us a free ice khalua coffee for my dad's birthday. I would definitely go back.

Highly suggest that you order shrimp dishes here! We were happy with our food and two for one drinks! The flambé dishes at table side are not only showstoppers but delicious too. Highly recommend, good staff

One of us was not feeling well and neither was very hungry and the staff suggested sharing a soup and salad. Soup and salad hit the spot. One of us also had the chicken enchiladas which was very tasty and a generous serving. Would try it again. Loved the atmosphere - a nice mix of Canada and Mexico. Hockey on... More

For this year’s trip we decided to venture out and look for those “diamonds in the rough” eateries and avoid the usual “four-five star” rated restaurants. We came across this quaint restaurant while exploring the plaza in downtown Ixtapa. Initially we had reservations as the tables were empty, but then we noticed nearby restaurants were also empty……either business is down,... More
