I have eaten at Xtapa about three times. Each time I thoroughly enjoyed the food. In each case, the service has been slow and not particularly friendly.

Good service but got a combo plate full of cheesy saucy mess that all tasted the same. Maybe this is what a lot of Americans like, not for me. A little pricey too.

I really like their chips and salsa, and Guacamole is very good. The servings and large and my kids are always happy. Not crazy about the taco salad. Had to ask for more cheese. Felt it was bland.
