Year after year, one of my favorite spots in Ixtapa (Guerrero, Mexico) for eating the sopa de tortilla remains Los Bigotes de Zapata. I try the soup in other restaurants but always come back to this one. The bouillon is richer, the portion is more generous, the pieces of tortilla in the soup are crispy and it is served with...

We absolutely loved our yummy breakfasts at Los Bigotes. We received friendly service with a big smile from Cecile every day. We especially enjoyed the fresh coffee, tasty orange juice, perfect eggs and a side order of shrimp … yum, yum, yum! This fabulous restaurant is in the perfect location with reasonable prices that are worth every peso. We would... More

The next day we discovered Los Bigotes ( Martin's ). The breakfasts there were great. cooked perfectly every morning. The servers are... More

Off the main street and worth finding. Very friendly staff, some of who speak English. Great service. Recommend shrimp omelette and the steak w/cheese tacos

We read the menu and ordered. The Tortilla soup was excellent. It was 55 peros. My dish had the eggs and bacon but was missing the other described on menu. (65 peros). Orange juice was 25 peros for a small glass.

This is always the first place we go to when we arrive in Ixtapa! The food is fantastic, authentic, and reasonably priced. The service can't be beat! My favorites are their camarones a la ajillo and enchiladas verdes con pollo.

We call this place “the lady in white’s”. It is tucked away behind the new Deborah’s, not far from the original mamma norma’s. It is a courtyard type set-up and we enjoyed breakfast 2 mornings here. The coffee is good, as are their breakfast packages. They also have iced tea if you want it (probably instant, but still, harder to... More

We ate out for breakfast for a whole week and this was one of the best. Excellent service and they will accommodate tweaks to their menu. This is a great place to experiment with various Mexican breakfasts including a plate of fresh fruit. Relaxing café atmosphere.

Great food and excellent service. This hidden gem in Ixtapa is often overlooked by people passing by. Stop people! The food is delicious. We went there a few years ago and they had a different menu from the one they are using now. On it were divorced enchiladas, which were outstanding. The new menu didn't feature them. However, the server,... More
