“Great Place for Seafood in Ixtapa...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

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 another night, we had the table side shrimp. They were very good as well. I would expect all their food to be good, but we stuck with the seafood. Always a good bet when you are near the ocean!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

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

“Delicious food, Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

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.

“Excellent food and very attentive and friendly wait staff! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

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 it over a small flame at your table and it was by far the best meal we have had here and probably the best shrimp we've had in the last year! We have two more days and will probably return again!
The prices are very reasonable

“Lalo is back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Lalo is back at the Blue Shrimp restaurant in Ixtapa. We had the Ixtapa Shrimp, Tequila Shrimp and the House Shrimp dinners. They all were very good. The House Shrimp dinner has cheese added to it, otherwise it is similar to the Ixtapa Shrimp dinner. The week ends still have the music upstairs but it is not very loud as before.

Highly recommend the Blue Shrimp for breakfast or dinners.
