We visited El Galeon because we were looking to eat dinner by the marina in Ixtapa. We should have smarter to notice that the place was virtually empty during the peak dinner hours (even though we were there in the low tourism season). We ordered a mahi-mahi dish and a shrimp dish, and both were average... they weren't bad and we had no complaints, but we had so much other food in Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo that this place seemed rather subpar. AND the prices were definitely too high for the quality of food - I suppose they were higher because of the view of the marina and the likelihood of attracting tourists like us.
If you're looking to go out in Ixtapa, we recommend looking elsewhere before going to El Galeon. You can find better food for lower prices, especially if you look in Zihuatanejo.

We went for dinner on a friday night and we had a great dining experience. We had a couple of appetizers (a tuna carpaccio, and fried calamari), both were amazing. My wife had grilled jumbo shrimp and they offered two different sauces to dip in, I had a steak tuna on guajillo chile sauce that was just perfect. I got two perfectly seared tuna medallions with the guajillo sauce that tasted better than they looked, and they looked amazing. We had dulce de leche crepes with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and were superb. it was a really great cost-benefit relation dinner on a very casual romantic setting by the marina.

We were staying at bvg marina and walked over to marina. The marina was pretty empty and we decided to give el galeon a try. Very good service as there were only two parties in the restaurant. They offered us a free glass of wine with dinner, which was very nice. The food was very good and the prices were what you would expect at a marina.

We actually had lunch here twice during our visit to Ixtapa. We were the only people in the entire Marina which was kind of sad. But, we had great lunches and great service here. The BEST chilaquiles ever, I had the red and the verde sauces and it were delicious.
