Been going to Morelos for over 15 years, I have never had a bad meal. Javier is wonderful, always a perfect gentlemen. His tamales are wonderful. Can't wait to go back.

Everything is good at Casa Morelos, from the meat dishes to the fresh seafood. And they have a good selection of wine as well.

We were a group of 4 people for dinner. Two of us had lasagne and two had the chicken breast stuffed with shrimp. All I can say is this was the best meal we have had in ixtapa/zihua. Service was awesome. When the server took our drink order, he asked what brand of vodka/rum/etc. we wanted, what size of drink.... More

The food was great, and also the service. Also, they were very busy, and still did a great job. I had chicken fajitas and my husband had the tuna..

We eat breakfast here almost everyday while in Ixtapa. Always good food. We had dinner 2 times there last week. The Coconut shrimp was so delicious. And very inexpensive.
