“Best place in Ixtapa for flaming shrimp and banana desert.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

The service and food are excellent as well as the servers love to put on a show while making at your table their famous flaming shrimp and for desert, their flaming banana.

“Great food and great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We had the house shrimp. The show in making it is worth the trip to find it! Delicious. Well priced. Nice serving staff, although run off their feet the night we were there. The caesar salad was also delicious and so was the lobster bisque my husband ordered. This was my favourite meal in Ixtapa. I had different favourites in Zihua.

“Different name, still great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

After eating here a number of times in the past couple years since Lalo opened it up, we were wary of the change to Quique's. No worry, still great food and good service. Our party of six ordered a variety of entrees and it was all good. Young Eduardo spoke excellent English and did a nice job preparing the shrimp at the table. Other than poor restroom facilities in the adjoining hotel pool area, this is a great place to eat.

“Now called Quique's Place. Still the best shrimp ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This place changed hands but much of the menu remains the same. The House Shrimp and the Coconut Shrimp are devine. We ate here three times on our two week trip. The staff is great and friendly. The food is fresh. The margaritas pack a punch (unless you go for the free one they offer. It is worth it to just pay for the regular to not get a watered down version). We love this place. It is next to the General's near the back of the town. Behind the big band stand and far behind Deborah's.

“Great Shrimp de Lalo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you are not worried about calories, try the Camarones (Shrimp) de Lalo. They will cook it table side and add the secret ingredients in front of you. If you like a rich creamy sauce, then it is worth the calories. The spinach salad was also very good. Many people love the salmon, but we did not try it. Service was very good both nights we were there.
