My last couple of trips to Ixtapa we have gone back to this hidden gem. Had the same waiter sh remembered me even. The flaming shrimp dish they do table side is great All other dishes we have had are just as good. They also do a bananas foster too table side.

We stopped for 2 for 1 happy hour and the people were very nice. People there had been there before and came back for more- always a good sign. So after wandering for a few more happy hours, we came back. The tiny place was packed but they moved a table for us. Our service was great and we enjoyed... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times, and have not been disappointed! We dropped in for breakfast on a whim and it has not failed to provide good food with excellent service on our returns! Tonight was seafood casserole ( excellent) and shrimp fettucine! Both delicious! We have two weeks left here and will visit it many more times!

Been to this restaurant three different times now and have yet to be disappointed. My suggestion, don't go to a Mexican seafood restaurant and order the Oriental Rice dish. Order what the restaurant is known for, seafood.

I was at the Blue Shrimp a year ago and wrote a very negative review and said I would not be back. Well, as a part of a group of 10 people visiting Ixtapa, I got dragged back. In fairness to the Blue Shrimp, my friends said they thought the seafood was excellent. I ordered a dish called Oriental something,... More

What an amazing place! The staff treated us like family! Food was consistently wonderful! We went multiple times and sent everyone we met! Be sure to order a Mango Margarita (make it bucket size) - WAY too good! They are filling, though, so we just ordered an appetizer and main dish to share between the two of us. Recommend the... More

Great service, great atmosphere! We went back a second time before we went home just for the coconut shrimp! I could eat there everyday. A bit pricey, but worth every penny

This place is great for seafood in particular. The food is very good, but I think the seafood is exceptional. Try the salmon with mango sauce. While I think the salmon is the normal restaurant farm raised stuff, the sauce makes it spectacular. My wife had the same sauce on some fresh mahi, but the salmon was our favorite. On... More
