Occasionally we have a staff member that can't come in and we do get short staffed. Your order was immediately corrected and I hope that you told the manager about the thermostat issue. We apologize for that inconvenience - we try to keep everyone happy and it doesn't always work out that way. Thank you for the feedback. More

I had been hearing good things about this restaurant. We have already tried to eat here once for dinner and it was too long of a wait- it is a very small restaurant. Today, we were very happy when we were only the 2nd table seated for lunch. The chips and salsa were amazing. All was well until we got... More

We love everything about Ixtapa! The food, Margaritas are amazing, the family that owns it is always over the top friendly and helpful and your supporting a small business all in one.

We have dined at this restaurant often over the years. Location is good as it is located across the street from the entrance to Zona Rosa on Barry Road. I have had excellent meals at times, while other times the food is just average. Service is good. Restaurant is clean and inviting.

This is not a Mexican-American restaurant. From what I understand this is typical West Mexico cuisine. We live near Chicago and have Frontera Grill as kind of a standard for authentic Mexican food, and Ixtapa is truly comparable. When your salsa and chips arrive, ask for hotter sauce if you want it. Luis was our server and he is so... More

Food was ample and good. Service was good. Salsa was rather bland. Some dishes had heat, but others were blandish. I'll pick somewhere else next time.

Recently went for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Seated immediately and noticed that the place was packed. I had to wait for my iced tea, which was perfectly fine because they were brewing a fresh batch- and when I did get my tea, it was brisk and refreshing. I had noticed the owner out and about, taking orders... More

Authentic and flavorful. The owner personally waited on our table and made wonderful suggestions. Be sure to get your "spice" level adjusted- I went with mild and was glad because the medium was hotter than you might be a little more spicy than at other places. Margaritas were good too.
