We go here every time in Ixtapa! The soup, seafood casserole and seafood are all delectable. Garlic cheese bread and Mexican coffee are among our favorites as well. Have been going there since it opened and it is better every year!!

The servers were friendly, the food was excellent, and I loved the decor. It was a quiet night and we were the only ones at the restaurant which always makes me wonder if it is a good place to eat but we liked the menu so decided to give it a try. I'm glad we did! We would definitely eat... More

Had dinner here and met the owner, very nice, handsome man. Atmosphere is absolutely perfect, right on the marina so the views of the yachts were amazing. Staff is very attentive and friendly and the Tuna Steak was the best! This place reminds me very much of Palm Beach Florida very upscale! This would be perfect spot for a special... More

This restaurant is at the Marina, if you seat outside you will be looking at the sea and the boats. Food is great and service also. Bean soup delicious, Tiritas de pescado great. Everything my family ordered was delicious, we were a group of 13 people and service was great although the kitchen was a little slow. There are fans... More

10 of us dined here for my anniversary. The staff took excellent care of us. The food was great and care was taken in the presentation. It was a most enjoyable experience.

We visited in March hoping to eat Lobster, but they were all out of Lobster. So, we decided to get adventurous and try other things on their menu. The food was VERY GOOD, and I would highly recommend it. However, there seemed to be a very long wait in between appetizers and the main course, and for getting our tab... More

We enjoyed garlic bread, lobster bisque, clam chowder and the most fabulous jumbo shrinp. We asked for something not seen on the menu - we wanted breaded shrimp and the response - "yes we can do that - it is your vacation" and in English. Thje whole experience was very enjoyable!!!

This restaurant on the Marina was a wonderful surprise!. We were actually looking for another restaurant and found El Galeon. The service was so awesome. They brought drinks right away and really tripped on themselves trying to please. Their menu listed several types of shrimp but not coconut. One of our party asked if Coconut Shrimp was possible, they said... More

We have been twice now during our vaca... The service is outstanding. The food, excellent. Yes, pricy but that's expected. Great atmosphere, a lovely short walk from our condo. Too bad the Marino is so empty and kind of abandoned except for a few restaurants.
