Excellent food, service, view, and wine list too. We had the scallop appetizer, tuna, and mole fish. Would definitely return for the sunset.

This was the first time we had been to this restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. Although my allergies to certain foods limited my choices, the chef did his very best to make my evening a culinary delight. The service is wonderful. You are not rushed and given the time to savour your food and the beautiful ambiance. The... More

Our experience at this beautiful restaurant would have been better had we made our reservation for a little bit earlier. Situated right on the ocean, with the sound of crashing waves below...the wait staff was very attentive and helpful. We ordered appetizers, drinks, entrees, and desserts! This is a prime spot for romance, (although I was traveling with my best... More

We made reservations early and noted that we were celebrating a special anniversary. And celebrate we did. Perfect table along the rail. Great wine list - not too big and not too small - just right. Just about anyone could find something they'd enjoy on the menu. Food tasted great. Raul - our waiter - was awesome. With our limited... More

Villa de la Selva has a spectacular view and very good food and service. Their Caesar salad was the best I have ever had.

We had a dinner with a big group here during our trip to Ixtapa. It was about a 10 minute cab ride from our hotel and was worth the visit. We sat on the deck at the edge and it was such a fantastic view. We arrived and sat down just as the sun was setting which was great for... More

Wonderful place with very good food. Everything was great however the fresh lobster from the daily catch was the best. Excellent service and clearly the best view in town. Make sure you reserve a table at the very edge of the deck just before sunset!

This restaurant has a BEAUTIFUL view and spectacular service. I would say the only thing that could have been a little better was the food. I would say it's an 8/10. It's good, but not great. However, due to the view, the ambiance, the service, and the location, we would definitely return.

A great place to celebrate a wedding anniversary. This has been the sixth time we have visited Villa de la Selva and definitely will not be the last. I suggest making reservations so that you are seated at your table just before the sun goes down as the view is beyond description. The Caesar salad is a fun to order... More

beautiful view and gorgeous restaurant. The food is very good and the service excellent. A bit pricey but if money is not a problem, you will enjoy it very much. They don't mind to change your food if it is not the way you expect it. I had the lamb and it was too cook for me, so I mentioned... More
