They brought a high chair for the toddler. We had the tempura for an appetizer and it was good. I was starving. I had the tortilla soup. A big bowl... More

We have enjoyed IXTA'S food for a couple of years. They have a good selection on their menu. I really like their pasta alfredo with chicken. Another one of my favorites is their greek salad. Their service is excellent and friendly. No matter what is ordered there is never a complaint. Parking is along the street and not generally a... More

We had a pleasant time at Ixta. We ate in the open air near the street. It was a warm evening with many people to watch strolling by. The service was excellent and the food was top notch. We ate in about 18 restaurants in Mexico and this one was about #5. Value and atmosphere were very good. I had... More

We enjoyed our meals here and the staff were super friendly and actually came and told us that happy hour was over in a few minutes, if we wished to order another margarita before it was over. Glad we did as the margaritas were very good. We enjoyed a great bowl of tortilla soup, garlic shrimp and a delicious hamburger... More

We have known this restaurant and owner Pierre for years. He recently hired a new chef from his home town in Switzerland and "voila" amazing. Every dish from appetizer to main course is superb in taste and presentation. The wait staff headed by Jorge are very attentive and top of the shelf. You have to try it even if it's... More

Their bartender is very talented, and we enjoyed their cocktails and wine selection. Of the multiple dishes we tried our favorite was the Bourbon Shrimp Alfredo which... More

Owner Pierre Baerswyl and his fantastic team delight locals and visitors alike with great food and service with an ambiance that is friendly yet professional. Chef Abraham Madrid has a marvelous gift for bringing an international flair to the very best of Mexican cuisine. From Tequila Shrimp to True Soup to the best Enchiladas in the Riviera Nayarit (according to Pierre himself), you will always enjoy the freshness and care that goes into every dish. Yummy Lime, Mango and Strawberry Margaritas and icy cold beer are part of an All-Day Happy Hour and busy Friday nights with live music by 'Son 4' make IXTA the perfect place to meet locals and visitors alike. Reservations are not required but recommended for Live Music Nights.
