We really enjoyed the wood-oven pizza over there! Servers could be more attentive and caring though... it would make it a great place to come back to.

What a welcoming, fun place to hang out at any time of the day or night. We spent many afternoons and evenings at Frank's Bar and Grill, drinking margaritas and beer and having the occasional fire-roasted pizza. There was live music most nights and a fun crowd most of the time. The staff is friendly and fun. Araceli has the... More

I will start by saying Frank is very nice. However food is average, service was very slow and prices (for what you get) seem high. I will say the pizza was pretty good, everything else .... not great. May have been an off night ... but I wouldn't rush back .... by any stretch.

Our experience here was horrible. We arrived for lunch and there was only one other occupied table. We ordered they brought instant coffee - without telling us it would be instant that we made for ourselves. They brought my daughter a cold bottle of water and 2 warm bottles with glasses of ice for myself and my husband. 60 minutes... More

Of course we would be curious about a restaurant run by a Canadian when we too were far from home! Got caught up on some sports and had some excellent pizza! Glad we ventured off the resort.

We had a late supper here and loved it. Frank came out and said hello which was great. They had a 3 man band that got the place rocking. So much fun.

We had heard about this place run by a fellow Canadian with good reviews so we had to check it out. The atmosphere was great, not far from the resort. The food was great & friendly staff. The owner came to visit each table whenever we dropped in to eat. It's a place to check out, that's for sure.

One off the best places and meals you can get in Ixtapa! Usually a live band and fun atmosphere! Frank makes a point to meet everyone if he's there!

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++.
