The title of my review is what my order will be the next time I visit! On previous visits I had ordered a stuffed chicken breast once and a pasta another time and just wasn't seeing what my family always raved about. My most recent visit I ordered their Caprese Salad as an appetizer and it was great. BUT the... More

We only went once for lunch and were disappointed in the food. It was kind of bland which is not what you expect in Mexico. I also went to the bar one day and after showing them how to make a martini had a great time meeting some new friends!!!

We spend the winter in Bucerias and Ixta is just across the street. We love it, and go several times a week for drinks, lunch, or dinner. Great margaritas, great happy hour, love the mini hamburgers, fries, and salads. Great, attentive staff. The remodeling is a hit!

We stumbled upon this place on the first morning of our stay, and kept coming back. 85 pesos for coffee, juice, toast and your choice of eggs, meat and pancakes! The food is delicious, great service, and very clean restaurant and bathrooms.

Ate here for breakfast a number of times during our stay in Bucerias. All breakfasts are 85 pesos and are of good quality. Lots of choices with all of them accompanied by orange juice and endless coffee. Great service and good location.

Until a few weeks ago, I had only been to Ixta for the monthly breakfast meetings of a community organization. Good buffet, but IMO, it's pretty difficult to mess up basic breakfast items. When friends suggested Ixta for lunch, it sure sounded good to me. Since I was craving some Tex-Mex, I ordered the taco salad and I was not... More

This is probably one of the best places for breakfast in Bucerias. Good coffee, lots of choices and one price includes all, coffee, juice, and breakfast choice. Lots of toast served with breakfast. It is a definite good choice for breakfasts.

Restaurant Ixta is worth stopping at for a meal. A must have is the true soup. The enchiladas are great. It was a nice change because vendors are not allowed in the restaurant.
