We have stayed in Ixtapa for a month and as friends were staying at the hotel here, we joined them. Best shrimp in garlic sauce, Serrano ham and melon appetizer, best mahi all month and for octopus lovers, a huge,tender pulpo with great sauce. Excellent coffee and reasonable wine list. Upscale quality restaurant(underrated) on the beautiful Madera beach. Also terrific singer/guitar player. Worth going.

This Bistro is very good because they are always on top of everything if you want to eat fast or slow they are on it. The food is good they have a variety of fine fresh fish to steak dinners and the view of the bay watching people walk by is great, it is very Authentic and the Service like I said is GREAT!

We made a reservation for 7. They put us in the back of the restaurant. The stuffed chili rellano was undercooked, basically a raw chili that was super spicy. Would not go back, and would not record this restaurant.

This is our go to place for breakfast...traditional options, always good. The staff is the same year to year, we already always greeted with a smile and wonderful coffee. Breakfast lunch or dinner the food and service here is consistent and the view of the bay enjoyable.
