“Wonderful service and the people are so very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

If you are looking for Mexican food this is the best in town... We especially like the hand made tortilla's...They will only bring three at a time as they do not want them to get cold before you eat them. Celia in the afternoon and Lupita in the morning have been there for many years and are excellent at what they do. Tacos pastuer and tacos chuleta are two of my favorites

“Not going back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had lunch here a couple of days ago. After asking if the fish tacos were made with mahi and being told they were, I ordered them. I spat out the first bite and sent them back. Smelly fish that was most likely sailfish. They did remake with mahi and they were better, but nothing great. I thought the corn tortillas were thick and mealy. My wife had the chicken enchiladas and was similarly unimpressed. The pico was tired looking and not chopped finely and the chips totopos had been in the humidity too long and had morphed from crispy to chewy.

“good food, good service, good drinks and seldom busy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The location is such that people just walk by. But the food, service and everything is good, and the prices are very good. Great tortilla soup and fajitas. Celia is very attentive and the margaritas are excellent.

“Average Food, Little Atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Located in the commercial area of Ixtapa just off the main square.

I've eaten here a few times, usually meeting friends who are already there or want to try the place. Although nothing is bad about this place, there is likewise nothing that makes it stand out.

Here, it is the staff that will make or break your visit. Service can range from very good to not so good depending upon the servers, who change quite frequently. This makes me wonder when the servers are always changing. I know some work only for tips, in which case I doubt there is enough business in this mostly empty place to earn enough dineros.
Don't like giving this place a 'bland' review but there is so much more in so many other places inthe Ixtapa-Zihua area.
