Our group walked from our resort to the Blue Shrimp as we had eaten here in the past. Outdoor dining, and the food was wonderful!! Great food (no one was disappointed) and was not overly expensive. We'd recommend it!

The service was fast and very friendly. If you're looking for a local place to eat with amazing food, stop in... More

My family had a wonderful dinner at Blue Shrimp. This place did not disappoint! The Ixtapa Shrimp meal was the best meal I've had in some time! The staff was extremely friendly, service was perfect and the margaritas were awesome. If you are in Ixtapa you have to have a meal here. In the last four days we've had the... More

This is an excellent and tourist friendly restaurant. I had their chilequiles con huevos for breakfast twice. Best ever! I also ate dinner there once and had the chile rellenos stuffed with shrimp. Reasonable prices and good food.

The staff spoke English and were funny. The place was full but they never made you feel unwanted. The coconut shrimp was over cooked, but they made ma sauce/dip from mango and coconut that made it easier to eat. The bathroom is not handicap accessible.

We stayed at an all inclusive resort.but walked across the street and ate here twice. The coconut shrimp were so big I could only eat four of seven. My husband ate one the bell boy got the other two. He was a very happy guy.
