We were visiting Ixtapa for 4 days and after reading other reviews from trip advisor made plans to celebrate my birthday at the Galeon. The evening was perfect. Cisco our waiter was very attentive and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. We were not disappointed.

This was our favorite restaurant in Ixtapa during our recent April vacation. The waiter has a picture on his cell phone with a view of an alligator (or crocodile - never can get this straight) with glowing amber eyes in the surrounding water surfacing with a fish in his mouth. Don't let your small children fall in the water! Actually,... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel. As we traveled during low season, there were minimal guests at the restaurant and we were treated with incredible service and superb food. The table side prep of the caesar salad was entertaining and the staff did everything imaginable to make our dining experience enjoyable. The harbor view, beautiful boats,... More

The food was great but things were just a little slow coming out. Ceviche recipe changed from the last time we were there and they do not take AmEx .

The waiter enticed in with a free bottle of wine which was excellent but with six people one bottle didn't go far. Everyone in our group had a fantastic meal. This is a nice, quiet place to eat overlooking the million dollar yachts in the marina.

Galeon restaurant is practically the best restaurant in town! The waiter Francisco did everything possible for us to have a great evening. We ordered the salmon carpaccio, I ended up ordering a ribeye for main course and I have to admit that it was excellent!! This restaurant is a must go! I highly recommend it!

We had a nice dinner here. We were a bit disappointed in the clam chowder as it's purred and we prefer it chunky. However our meals were good and we loved the location.

We had dinner at this restaurant twice while on vacation. The atmosphere is very nice in that it has outdoor tables overlooking the marina. The service is very efficient and the food is well prepared and tasty. This place is a nice break from the Ixtapa all inclusive hotel restaurants. Unfortunately, it was sparsely attended along with most of the... More
