10 of us dined here for my anniversary. The staff took excellent care of us. The food was great and care was taken in the presentation. It was a most enjoyable experience.

We visited in March hoping to eat Lobster, but they were all out of Lobster. So, we decided to get adventurous and try other things on their menu. The food was VERY GOOD, and I would highly recommend it. However, there seemed to be a very long wait in between appetizers and the main course, and for getting our tab... More

We enjoyed garlic bread, lobster bisque, clam chowder and the most fabulous jumbo shrinp. We asked for something not seen on the menu - we wanted breaded shrimp and the response - "yes we can do that - it is your vacation" and in English. Thje whole experience was very enjoyable!!!

This restaurant on the Marina was a wonderful surprise!. We were actually looking for another restaurant and found El Galeon. The service was so awesome. They brought drinks right away and really tripped on themselves trying to please. Their menu listed several types of shrimp but not coconut. One of our party asked if Coconut Shrimp was possible, they said... More

We have been twice now during our vaca... The service is outstanding. The food, excellent. Yes, pricy but that's expected. Great atmosphere, a lovely short walk from our condo. Too bad the Marino is so empty and kind of abandoned except for a few restaurants.

Loved this place. We go each time we visit Ixtapa. The food is great, the view of the marina is wonderful as we are right there! Especially love the decor...a spanich Gallion Ship!...I like to think it's a pirate ship. Wish more people would go there so they stay in business. Truly is worth the trip to the Marina...a short...

We had a nice table overlooking the marina, and had good service. Garlic toast was followed by a Caesar salad made at table side. We both had Red Snapper which we both found to be spongy. The least expensive bottle of white wine, an ordinary Chardonnay from Chile was 360 pesos. No other drinks or dessert, and with tip, our... More

Took a large group of friends for lunch. All the food was very good. The clam chowder was amazing. everyone that tried mine wished they had ordered it. The service was a little slow since we were the only people in the place at the time. Overall I would recommend it.

Looking for breakfast and found this lovely spot at the Marina.... Open at 8:30am for those sleeping in :) Most of us wanted pancakes and they were great! Bacon was delicious and the Maple Syrup was straight from Quebec! Service was attentive and coffee was served with "real" cream! Price was really good.

We ate here during a business trip with my husband. The wait staff did an excellent job of getting your drink order as soon as you walked in! I believe the main servers name was Antonio and he was fabulous! We started with the Cesar salad which the chef makes the dressing table side.. They were out of lobster but... More
