Very well decorated, family friend place. The food was great, the beer was very cold, the only disparaging comment I have are that the drinks are not great. The prices are a little high but not too bad.

I've been going to Ixtapa since they opened. Excellent margaritas (Presidente) and very good Mexican food. I love the arroz con pollo, it's my favorite. And they also have excellent fresh guac. And a wonderful habanero hot sauce.
