“great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

we always come over to Ixtapa (we're long term condo people in Ziahutanejo) ...but still like to come over to walk the beautiful Ixtapa beach & eat out. We loved Momma Norma & Deborah's--simple, unassuming..but a super friendly staff and some of the BEST food you'll ever find in Ixtapa! Breakfasts are wonderful! Big coffe cups--they KNOW what you want! (that's Deborah's influence, I'm sure) Dinner..well, we were lucky to get a table...it gets busy! We know they'll treat us well next year! (ps....thanks, Peanut!)

“Yummy”

Good food, reasonable prices. Part of a small, local chain, and all 3 restaurants are clean and friendly with good service.

“Good Portion/Great Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

excellent breakfast menu, great portion size and great prices. My husband had the morning breakfast package for only $4.90, this included a fruit plate, eggs, toast, pototoes or rice/chiquillares. Add bacon for only $.90. Add OJ for only $.50. I add fruit plate for $3.00 and also the yogurt, fruit and granola for $3.00. Good menu.

“Great breakfast place and Great value for your dollar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We have been coming to Ixtapa for seven years and to Deborah for all seven. We always walk into town from Las Brisas resort and get the best breakfasts for about $12 USD. Deborah is there every day helping her staff in any way the need it which is not much. The staff of four handles the entire seating area which is the majority outside. Get a table outside as inside can get a little warm even at 8:30 in the morning. Everything we have had at this place we loved. From the breakfast burritos to the pancakes the the chilaquilles with chicken and eggs. The staff work together and all take very good care of you while your there. Until this year we have gone here for breakfast only. BIG MISTAKE. We went twice for dinner, including valentines day, and loved the food more than breakfast. My wife had Chili Rellenos and I had Surf and Turf. A six ounce filet and 5 tiger prawns. WONDERFUL! We met Daniel, our server in the morning, and he is new at his job at this location. He is already an excellent server. Very personable and friendly like the rest of the staff. One time when my wife and I were exploring other the town we bumped into Daniel and he stopped to chat with us for a few minutes even though it looked like he was on his way home from his morning shift. He didn't have the do this working for a larger tip. He was just being a nice young man. This i think is typical of the type of staff members at Debora's. Try this place and you won't be disappointed! Great locally owned and staffed place to go. Get away from your hotel and experience Ixtapa. PS If Deborah happens to make her cheese cake order two slices. Heaven on a fork!
