This is our third time back in Ixtapa and our favorite get away from the chilly Canadian winters. It’s also tradition now for us to stop by Franks Bar & Grill when in town and the best part is neither Frank nor the restaurant have...More

The owner of the bar is from Canada and had lots of team heresies on the walls from Canadian Teams.Service and food were great but very hot in there because of the pizza oven.I'd definitely go there again.

We ate at Franks twice just for the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer and their great pizza. Almost a tie between Frank's and Emilio's, but Frank's wins. Baked in their wood fired pizza oven and just palin delicious. Busy restaurant, don't miss it.

This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.
