In my first review I explained that I ordered breakfast, easy over eggs which I returned three times and was subsequently charged three times I paid the bill and swore I would never return. I recently received the following message, I would like to inform you that IXTA was not open in September and does not serve breakfast. I respectfully... More

IXTA is on the main drag of Bucerías in the zona dorado. Food here has always been good. This visit contained no surprises. Appetizer of garlic shrimp and a main course of filet mignon done to perfection. Since my last visit the chef has moved on to open his own place, the menu has been simplified and the restaurant itself... More

we tried Ixta, and loved it. Food was interesting, well presented, and delicious. I love it when the owner comes around and checks in with you, that shows attention and respect for the customer. We will be back

Pierre and his staff are very nice. Feel welcome when you walk in. The food is amazing....try it! If you are staying at the Decameron, it's just a short walk on right hand side, so stop and check it out.

Seven of us were here for dinner. A sort of fancy restaurant with cloth napkins but we weren't dressed up. Everyone liked their food. The staff was helpful and nice. 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

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.
