We are coming back March 2017 and Deborah's will be our first meal, She is a gracious host and the lobster and coconut shrimp are to die for. See you soon 😎

We read and received better recommendations than we experience. The place is nothing special, just like the food... and the service.

Walked around today and dropped into this place for a quick beer. We decided to stay for a late lunch. The food was OK / average - not memorable and we wouldn't go back. Other reviews note that the owner comes around and says HI - and to our surprise, she was there and said HI at this odd, slow... More

We had a great breakfast and visit with our friend at Deborah's in Ixtapa. Very open, relaxing, great service, and a great breakfast burrito (odd as it is, a breakfast burrito wasn't easy to find down there).

The new space occupied by Deborah's is lovely, spilling out to the sidewalk and providing a first rate Mexican outdoor ambiance. The food, as it has been for years, is good enough, reliable dishes for the tastes of the tourists, and priced to meet the most frugal budget.

Love this place and Deborah . Have been going to her restaurant since she opened and her new location is really nice. She is great and always greets us when we come there. The food is good and service is the best.

During our recent trip to Ixtapa to celebrate our 25th Anniversary we chose to have our celebratory dinner at Deborah's. We had great personal service even to the point of providing a Coke for my dinner (the restaurant serves Pepsi products). My wife had a shrimp dinner that was prepared at our table. The food was excellent as is the... More

We have visited many times and always found the food to be very good, the service excellent and the staff helpful. A couple of years ago we booked for a very special 'Thanksgiving Dinner which again was a highlight of our stay. The Lobster meal is huge and should only be tackled with a huge appetite but very tasty. A... More
