A group of eight enjoyed the entertainments, the food and drinks at this restaurant. The shrimp enchiladas were well received. As with most eateries in Ixtapa, you will revel in the outdoor food experience of balmy evenings, attentive service and lively music.

The Blue Shrimp was a great Mexican dining experience. I had a wonderful "Shrimp Flambe" prepared near the table. The prices were low and the food was fabulous. A warning - they do not accept credit cards so bring cash.
