“Dinner with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

The food and service were excellent!!! We had the calamari and assorted tuna appetizer. For dinner I had the Risotto with Shrimp and my husband had Surf and Turf. My friend had the best meal which was the veal. We finished with an assortment of desserts. Nothing was bad and the seanery and ambiance excellent!

“SPECIAL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Villa de la Selva will always be one of our favorite upscale restaurants in the area.

Atmosphere is the best. We always go in time for the sunset.

Food is always excellent; with impeccable service.

Just hoping they will have some gluten free meal options this year.

If you are blessed to be traveling to this beautiful area of the world (Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, MX) and want a memorable dining experience you MUST make Villa de la Selva your choice!

“Top notch, but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is by far one of the must places in ixtapa. Beautiful views -specially if you come early for sunset-, great service and really good food. My only regrets are that the portions are waay too small (I like men size portions) and prices are on the high side. All in all you will have a wonderful experience and the musician is also very good.

“Great settings, great food, coffee too expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Only 2 comments: the hostess at the entrance could smile, and since the tables are a bit far and with stairs, it seems that bothers her, she could send us with the waiter.waiters are correct, a bit too serious.

“Remove the blue tuna from the Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Sorry, but this is how i feel after our visit to this magnificent restaurant. It is located over cliffs, next to the Las Brisas Hotel in Ixtapa. We experienced incredible sunset. The place was set up with white table clothes, candles overlooking the Ixtapa Bay. Service was excellent. I chose the Blue Tuna on the menu which was a disappointment. It consisted of three small pieces of tuna and i think that such beautiful and famous restaurant can do better....
