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

The flavours were amazing and the wait staff was really attentive to your needs. We had flambed shrimp dishes and margaritas, just the best.

Octopus cocktail, flamed shrimp, best coconut shrimp ever and excellent wine. Couple this with "can do" attentive service tells you why we ate 3 breakfasts and two dinners at the Blue Shrimp even though we were staying at an all inclusive hotel. Highly recommended.

We are in Ixtapa 2/22-2/27 and so far we've eaten here twice. The first time my husband had the sea and sea; lobster and shrimp plate. Although the lobster was good, the shrimp was far better. I had the coconut shrimp and this was also great! We returned again tonight and both of us had the tequila shrimp. They cook... More
