We have a habit of ending our stay in Ixtapa or "Z" on Friday night at El Faro. We normally go every Friday night but our last Friday is special for it is a tradition that is over 10 years old. We have noticed as they change chefs, the menu is tweaked also. I love their onion soup with the pastry baked over the soup and bowl- it's still hot when it's brought to the table. There are 2 menus- 1 is for the A/I guess at Pacifica and the other for the paying customers. We did New Years Eve 2012 and the view from our table of the fire works with some of the blast felt like you could reach out and touch them. With us coming back year after year, each time we arrive we are greeted by the different waiters we have had over the years and receive superb service(everyone does). The price is more than the small places but is in line with the up scale restaurants in the area. Have paid more at other restaurants and the food not as good. As everyone says, the view is beautiful. We try to get there before the sun goes down and watch the lights come on below. Seeing the beach and the hotels light up and Ixtapa- what a sight. We look forward to our next visit January 2014.
