“The Best In the Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I have had dinner here 3 times in the last 3 years or once each winter and it has always been great. Reservations are absolutely necessary for dinner, You will enjoy the friendly, attentive staff and the food is excellent. The last time I had a shrimp dinner cooked to perfection. The menu however is varied and there should be a choice for everyone favorites. We originally heard about it by word of mouth and over time have heard it mentioned again and again. You can't get a stronger recommendation than that.

“Treated like Royalty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

When in Ixtapa, this is a MUST place to dine. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, Deborah & her staff will treat you like Royalty. If you are a Canadian - try the excellent Canadian Breakfasts! For lunch, have the stuffed avocado and for Dinner, well, you just better have the Coconut Shrimp - preferably something flaming - which is done right beside your table. Whether you are on a date or in a group, you can't miss with the Flaming Sexy Coffee either. And Deborah spends many hours a day in her kitchen at her own home in Ixtapa, preparing all the desserts - one of which is her Award Winning Coconut Cream Pie! Altho there's no water view from this cozy little hideaway right in the heart of Ixtapa, you will undoubtedly feel like you are in another world. And when you get there, tell them Dana recommended you go there!

“Best food around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The food was the best we ate in Ixtapa. Very good service and cold drinks. We had several different dishes from chicken to beef to fish and everything was great.
