“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

The atmosphere is wonderful, the menu is varied and unique but everything was delicious, and the staff are all very kind and helpful. They always have great specials. I have been to Ixtapa multiple times and always dine at this restaurant at least three times.

“Very good food and good prices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

Nice sidewalk cafe. Had a great breakfast there. They have American and Mexican food. Had wonderful Seafood Pasta for lunch one day too. The owner is a very nice lady who even sat down and chatted with us. This is the second year we have been to Ixtapa and have enjoyed eating at La Malinche both times.

“We've had good experiences here through the years...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

First, a caveat - I'm going by my imperfect memory on whether this is the right place or not.
The La Malincha we go to is the first restaurant on the left as you go down the narrow passage that is to the left of the building containing Senor Frogs on the other end. Right spot?
Anyway, we like this place and go every year. Food is good and they have 2 for 1 drinks.
Best part is the live music - typically a single soloist on guitar - very nice.
For large parties, they sometimes break out the giant sombreros and make you wear them (not exactly the reason we go). Good service and good food.
