Next time I would skip the margarita. The refried beans were very good & a bit different than many Mexican restaurant... read more

This was my second time eating at Ixtapa and I really enjoyed myself. Victor waited on us and was a delight. He also made ordering a lot of fun, typically I have a hard time deciding what I want, however, Victor made it very easy...I said I wanted chicken and not too spicy. Then a little while later he appears... More

Went to this Resturant in a week night for dinner. It was fairly well visited. The entrance is covered with awards and news article mentioning. However, I must say I wasn't super impressed. The food was good and the price was fair butttt it just didn't stick out as stupendous.

Atmosphere was a bit loud but nice. The salsa tasted fresh (had to get a pint to take home). Spices were spot on. I had the Enchiladas de Nopales. Order cactus any time I can...it was prepared very well here. The beans were excellent. Will definitely go again

On a Wednesday night the place was packed by 5:45. The food was very good. The service was also good. The owner suggested dishes we wouldn't have picked and we cleaned the plates. It was super yummy! We split an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. It was the perfect amount of food. The appetizer was soft fresh corn tortillas with a... More

This was the best Mexican food I have had in a long time! The food was high quality and you could taste the authentic, home-made flavors. Victor was simply amazing! He was friendly, helpful, energetic, and passionate about his craft. The combination of atmosphere, cuisine, and value make this place a must visit. I will definitely return!

This is real Mexican, not TexMex. The owner, Victor was also our server. He treated us like a member of the family. He asked us what we wanted and we weren't sure. He then asked if we wanted beef, chicken, or pork. We said we liked any of those. He then asked if we liked spicy or mild. We said... More

The food at this place is prepared with amazing care. They prepare a dish that makes an impression and represents a qualitative difference.

If you want to eat what residents of Guadalajara, Mexico eat, this is the place for you. No salt on the table. Nothing with yellow cheese. Fabulous salsa.
