The restaurant is highly overrated, they don’t care about giving a good service and getting there is really difficult. For the prices they charge they should invest in infrastructure, people is really rude when you get there and food is really mediocre. Don’t go!!!!

Amazing how they use lights and nature elements to make a beautiful open-air setting with ocean views! The new Kau Kan is in Ixtapa now, built in the cliffs (past Los Brisas resort). Your taxi will drop you off, you cross a beautiful bridge on...More

This restaurant is now located in Ixtapa. What a disappointment. Although the food was adequate, it was definitely over priced for what you got. We ordered a Caesar salad to share, but it arrived on one platter with no additional plates offered. We ended up...More
