We planned to go to Ixta Sunday evening but went online and found it was closed on Sunday. We were walking somewhere else and discovered Ixta was open on Sunday for two weeks in February. We had the catch of the day served with wasabi butter. It was delicious. The vegetables were perfect, the service was great, and the chef... More

This is a MUST STOP IN place. The atmosphere is great and Pierre and his staff are the best. If you want a great meal check it out. Best Caesars and French fries in Bucerias! Give them a try, you you will NOT be disappointed.

Walking past this location during the daytime, one would scarcely know there was anything there.....just a cleanly swept patio with a set of closed metal doors. But come nightfall, the transformation is incredible! Bathed in subtle, lambent lighting, the tables are positioned on the forecourt, festooned with festive red linen and sparkling cutlery ....the scene is set , The owner,... More

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.

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.
