If you're in Ixtapa, you have to try this place. The food was amazing and the service was great. No reservations were needed as we were waking around and decided to stop in for dinner. So glad we did! Highly recommend this!

The screens are on various sports, the food is yummy and the tequila flows! Exactly what one would expect from a sports pub in Mexico. Nice patio around the outside and located right in the heart of the "town" of Ixtapa.

This place has been around forever, and you really need to stop by when you're visiting Ixtapa. Really good pizza in a relaxed fun atmosphere.

Having our waiter make our best most delicious guacamole at the table was awesome, beautiful mango daquiries, and stunning coconut 🍤 shrimp. Large fans provided to abate the heat. Only drawback was many interruptions of children selling small trinkets

It has a north american sports bar feel, the food is good and well priced, the staff was really friendly and very attentive. Service was the best we had the whole time in Ixtapa. The Ixtapa shrimp was a favourite, it was delicious and they cook it right at your table. The Pina Coladas were also very good, creamy bursting... More
