“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Went to this magnificente restaurant April 2012 on Easter Sunday while vacationing in Ixtapa. Perhaps, the best restaurant I' ve ever been in Mexico. The fish was perfectly cooked, the sunset was absolutely breathtaking, and the service beyond description!. The restaurant is located on a cliff and all tables face the ocean, it's an open terrace...absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed a Mexican wine from Casa Madero, a Don Luis Reserva, it was perfect! This is definitely a place you should never miss when going to Ixtapa. Planning to go back!

“Great Food. Great View. Great Service!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We celebrated our 20 year anniversary here on July 25, 2012. We enjoyed everything. Delicious food. Delicious wine. Great service and gorgeous ambiance.

It began to rain on us as we enjoyed the last of our dessert making our experience even more lovely.

We will go back everytime we visit.

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We were in Ixtapa for our honeymoon and used TripAdvisor for almost all our dining adventures in Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. Since Villa de la Selva was listed as #1 in Ixtapa, we made sure to go one on our first night out. It is located a little further out from the city, near Las Brisas resort. The best time to go is right before sunset, because the view over the ocean is incredible! Then, once the sun has gone down, they light the deck with torches and small lights, which looks really nice.
The servers were very attentive and conscientious, and the food was amazing. We recommend the Mahi-Mahi and the banana flambe for dessert! We liked this place so much that we went back a second time during our stay! If you're in Ixtapa, you really should go here at least once because it far surpasses the standards of the other restaurants we visited in Ixtapa. Highly recommend!

“Dinner is wonderful there.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is a terrific place to have dinner and watch the sunset, have drinks, enjoy dessert. The ambiance is fabulous. It has terraced dining overlooking the village of Ixtapa and has very tasty food. You will love it. It is an experience all its own.
