this restaurant is a definate must see and experience in the Ixtapa experience. the views are spectacular and the sunsets are very beautiful to watch from the deck of the restaurant. the lemeurs were not here this year which was dissapointing but the food was excellent. the only issue our party had was the coconut ice cream tasted a bit old everything else was wonderful, the moulten chocolate cake and the yogurt cheescake were to die for. the staff was very attentive and the food was prepared exactly as we asked and they had to change some items on the menu due to alergies that some of our guests had, but it was not problem and the results were great. this restaurant has a very romatic setting and the low lights and quiet atmosphere make it very pleasant to be at this location. we had everything from pasta to steak to shrimp and scallop risotto and everything was prepared perfectly, the wine selection is very good and the waiters made sure that the glasses were always kept topped off which was a pleasant surprise after being at many other restaurants in the Ixtapa area where that level of attention was not given. we have been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years now and have always had wonderful experiences and it has become a tradition for us to come here at least once every trip we make to Ixtapa, it is also nice to have the staff recognize us when we come here for dinner with visitors who have not been there before.

We really enjoyed the 2 meals we had at this restaurant whose setting is dreamy. My favorite was the flan. Beyond the moon.

Very poor service, total lack of customer focus, pasta dishes were cold and underwhelming.
With a cost of over twice than other very good restaurants in Ixtapa they did not fulfill our expectations for a fine dining experience.

Beautiful view of ixtapa coast especially at sunset when we went. The drinks were also delicious and it was very romantic BUT for the price, the food was not impressive. Menu looks good but the appetizers are small and ours (duck taco, calamari) we rate at a 6. Entrees were a complete let down. A place you get the pasta because that was the best dish and still dry and small. Veal was undercooked along with the potato and my wife's lobster had maybe 5 oz of good meat for $50 bucks. Have to end saying service was great.

Great view, very good food. On the pricey end, but very romantic.
We enjoy the shrimp, risotto, caesar salads.
Wear your bug repellant.
