Description: Owner Pierre Baerswyl and his fantastic team delight locals and visitors alike with great food and service with an ambiance that is friendly yet professional. Chef Abraham Madrid has a marvelous gift for bringing an international flair to the very best of Mexican cuisine. From Tequila Shrimp to True Soup to the best Enchiladas in the Riviera Nayarit (according to Pierre himself), you will always enjoy the freshness and care that goes into every dish. Yummy Lime, Mango and Strawberry Margaritas and icy cold beer are part of an All-Day Happy Hour and busy Friday nights with live music by 'Son 4' make IXTA the perfect place to meet locals and visitors alike. Reservations are not required but recommended for Live Music Nights.

Great place to just hang out and beat the heat. Superb margaritas and the food was very tasty. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere was very inviting, homey.

“Great sandwiches!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

The blended margaritas are hard to beat - right up there with my other fav at Fat Boy restaurant. There sandwiches are fresh and very reasonably priced. You can also order to go. They purchase fresh fruit and veggies from the vendors that come by daily.

“Best margaritas & best service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

I love this place! Best margaritas that I have ever had, and I have done extensive research. Pierre, the owner, is Swiss, and the head waiter, Guillermo, is so engaging. There are some interesting murals on the wall depicting the legend of Ixta, an Incan warrior, so if you take the family, it can be a bit of a learning experience, too. And even if it's hot out, don't miss Abraham's True Soup -- a poblano/blue cheese bisque that is out of this world.
