We are pretty sure that Frank said in the summer months he lives with his wife and daughters in Cuernavaca, an area hard hit by the recent earthquake. We are in Ixtapa now and hope you are all okay.

Had a pizza ...it was good and the staff friendly. The drinks are OK, and the environment festive. A fun stop when youi need a break from resort eating.

We always enjoy our visit to Frank's. It is great to talk with Frank, see Mayo, Victor and others. Food is wonderful but be careful of the margaritas- they are amazing but potent! Cannot wait to return

We stopped by with a large group. Pizza was good, the rest was just OK. Overpriced for Mexico food. They did have a hockey game on.

We watched a couple Stanley Cup Playoff games and ate some very good pizza. The typical pub menu is broader than just pizza. The beer is cold and the atmosphere is friendly for expats and tourists from Canada and the USA.

Amazing food, drinks and atmosphere. A must stop at least once while in Ixtapa, you won't regret it. The owner is very personable as are the rest of the staff.

This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.
