This is a newer restaurant in Ixtapa. Excellent menu choices. I would recommend the house shrimp, it is out of this world here. Staff are very accommodating with the owner being there to make sure everything is running good.

found the Blue Shrimp tucked inside the plaza area. Friendly waiters , good meals! I had the fettuccini Alfredo and had them add shrimp. My bf had the chicken fajita's and we shared a bowl of tortilla soup prior to our meal...soooo good. Prices were reasonable and it's a busy place but there were no delays in getting our meals....

We've gone several times in the past few years, and twice this year. The dinner was with a group of 9 and went ok. My wife's coconut shrimp was excellent, my Mexican combo just ok. What I'd really recommend is going there for a quiet lunch, which we did again for our last day. Prices were very reasonable for some... More

We shared the flambe shrimp and the shrimp fettucine....both were very good and worked well together.The flambe was cooked tableside and the fettucine noodles looked fresh and homemade.Service was good, prices decent, and the the evening entertainment of dancers was a bonus.

I picked up a variety of breakfast to take back to our hotel. It was packaged well and the food was good. At evening we had the flaming shrimp and the House special filet, both were good. The shrimp flamed were $205 pesos and the regular shrimp dinners were $199 pesos. They also had 2x1 drinks. Lalo is back at... More

We have eaten here twice lately. The first time we had the shrimp flambé. It was very good and well prepared at the table which is always fun. The flambé and the delivery of the rice and veggies weren't well timed but we rolled with it. The second time we all had either shrimp or fish with garlic. OK garlic... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. I would not return!!!!! The service was poor! The food was ok so it was very disappointing. Very small portions for the price.

This is a staple for our visit to Ixtapa every year and if you are looking for a good price and flavor on grilled shrimp go no farther than the Blue Shrimp if you are staying in Ixtapa. The Blue Shrimp is located right across the street from the Ixtapa resorts. The menu has many items to choice from but... More

I really like the shrimp flambe. They make it right at the table and I find the theatrics entertaining as I love to cook. It is a hit and miss when it comes to service anywhere in Mexico but considering we were the only couple dining at 3 pm I'd say it was alright. I would recommend trying other stuff... More
