We enjoyed eating at this restaurant close to our condo. Unfortunately our second visit resulted in becoming extremely ill after eating aguachile. I suspect it had not been marinated long enough. Kudos to the owner, however, who graciously accepted my feedback. Otherwise, loved the burger...More

Our favourites here are the Tortilla Soup and/or the Garlic Shrimp but their pastas, lasagne and hamburgers are all excellent.

Owner Pierre Baerswyl and his fantastic team delight locals and visitors alike with great food and service with an ambiance that is friendly yet professional. Chef Abraham Madrid has a marvelous gift for bringing an international flair to the very best of Mexican cuisine. From Tequila Shrimp to True Soup to the best Enchiladas in the Riviera Nayarit (according to Pierre himself), you will always enjoy the freshness and care that goes into every dish. Yummy Lime, Mango and Strawberry Margaritas and icy cold beer are part of an All-Day Happy Hour and busy Friday nights with live music by 'Son 4' make IXTA the perfect place to meet locals and visitors alike. Reservations are not required but recommended for Live Music Nights.
