Che Mangiamo has been taken over by a cruel, mafia like group and the entire staff is gone, including the previous owner Miguel, as he was forced out. The town is buzzing about how terrible the new restaurant is. The prices have gone ridiculously high and the staff do not cater to the needs of the customers. This restaurant cannot offer its entertainment, prices or quality food like it use to. It is such a shame what these new "owners" have done to what use to be my favorite place in Ixtapa. Tourists should advice one another of this heart breaking news.

We just found out that our favorite restaurant in Ixtapa has been stolen from the previous owner in an underhanded way. We understand that the Che Mangiamo staff that were loyal to the previous owner have quit and that the new owner has raised the menu pricing. We loved this restaurant under the great management of Miguel! We will never go to this restaurant again!

since this restaurant is only a 5 min walk from the BVG Marina so we wanted to try it out as it is rated as #1 with TA. my teenage son had a large pizza with anchovies and cheese while i had a large pizza with sausage, onions, and olives. we then shared a fresh fish (mahi mahi) caught in zihua this morning with a white garlic wine cream sauce along with a side of al dente spaghetti. the fish was EXCELLENT and so FRESH! we did not have any drinks or dessert and our bill came to 505 pesos before tipping. we couldn't even finish our pizzas so we brought it back to the condo for breakfast next morning. the food was great, the prices were so reasonable, and the ambiance was fantastic! we had a seat overlooking the marina/water under twinkling stars on a gorgeous evening. we even got home baked bread with garlic butter before dinner. what a super meal !

just yesterday evening we were at the restaurant downstairs and what a disastrous meal that was -- terrible food, prawns had chlorine taste, clams had grit and sand, and the meal was overpriced for what you get and the quality of the food was unacceptable for the prices they charge. no wonder when we left CHE MANGIAMO, the restaurant below was EMPTY while Che Mangiamo was nearly full and this was on a Tuesday evening.
