After my last review of Franks, a year ago or so, I had the opportunity to visit again in November 2015. Frank is defenitely back to his old high standards...including the personality that made his place one of the go to spots in Ixtapa. After all, it ws not just the good food that Frank prepared, it was his personality... More

Went to Frank with a group of six. The food and the entertainment were awesome. Beware they don't accept credit cards cash only. We'll return next year and will be looking for the I am Canadian flag I gave Frank.

Food portions were huge. All of us took home doggie bags. Listen to Frank when he tells you "this will feed two people" .

GO TO FRANKS!!! We had a couple of great meals here! The first night we came because of what some other people had told us about the place. If you are looking for a good steak, come to Franks. We had steak on our resort and were very dissapointed with it. The steak here was awesome, I couldn't even finish... More

Frank's is a great little bar in the middle of the shopping center of Ixtapa. As soon as you walk in you feel at home, the staff is very friendly and the food and drinks are great! If you are from Saskatchewan you will feel like you are at home for sure, they have Rider flags and pennants all over!... More

Good food, not " wow that was the best food ever" but good. atmosphere was the best part. A mariachi band played while we ate. Busy little restaurant. It was pricey for the food we received.

The pizza here is awesome! The perogies were delicious (but they shouldn't be deep fried they should be boiled and then out into a frying pan with butter and onions.) The staff is friendly but a little slow.

Home from a wonderful family holiday. We ventured out and found Franks. Wow, so glad we did as it was awesome. The service, food and atmosphere were great. We ordered the Vegetarian and one with Chicken. I said there was no way we could eat all that pizza....guess what the four of us cleaned house. It's just too good.

Thank uniquebunch

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++.
