This well established and popular restaurant deserves its good reputation. The food is traditional Mexican style, well presented and fresh. I particularly relish the cold avocado soup. Of course in Ixtapa, fish dishes are wonderful because everything is "catch of the day"

We went to Casa Morelos on recommendation by our travel rep but found the food to be just average - nothing special. The service was good and prices reasonable though.

Apparently, having arrived at 8:00 pm on a Monday, the chef hadn't arrived yet (we don't really know). I and my husband ordered (the expensive!) shrimp mojo de ajo and a chili relleno respectively. We had come to this restaurant based on its positive reputation as a seafood restaurant in Ixtapa. The shrimp were dry as wood and chewy as... More

Everything is good at Casa Morelos, from the meat dishes to the fresh seafood. And they have a good selection of wine as well. The wait staff is always friendly, and the owner, Javier, is around a lot of the time to make sure that everyone is enjoying their experience at this restaurant in the Ixtapa marketplace.

We were a group of 4 people for dinner. Two of us had lasagne and two had the chicken breast stuffed with shrimp. All I can say is this was the best meal we have had in ixtapa/zihua. Service was awesome. When the server took our drink order, he asked what brand of vodka/rum/etc. we wanted, what size of drink.... More

The food was great, and also the service. Also, they were very busy, and still did a great job. I had chicken fajitas and my husband had the tuna..

We eat breakfast here almost everyday while in Ixtapa. Always good food. We had dinner 2 times there last week. The Coconut shrimp was so delicious. And very inexpensive.

We ate here last year and had a great meal and great service. This time we went and I'm not sure if the server was new or just not very good but he was EXTREMELY slow - he took the order from my wife and then left to the kitchen, came back to another table and took THEIR orders ...... More
