“One of the very best in ixtapa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

At casa Morelos there is no cutting corners. The quality and freshness of the food is undeniable. For example, I had mahi mahi several times at some other various local restaurants. Casa Morelos was far and away the best in taste and preparation. My wife had a delicious whole grilled red snapper which was cooked perfectly and was good size. Service could not be better. Polite and gracious. They also have table side preparation with some dishes and after dinner coffee drinks. The outside dining is always a nice touch with the fans above to give you a "little breeze"

“Very good food, fresh seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

The location of this restaurant is a little unfortunate - it's on the parking lot right next to Sr. Frog's in the heart of the tourist drag of Ixtapa. However, don't let that prevent you from eating here, because the food is very well done. The menu is varied, with bot meat & seafood, familiar dishes and more authentic and adventurous ones, too. Started with the cazuelita with octopus - just right, the meat was tender and flavorful, not at all rubbery, and the ajillo sauce added just the right level of zip. Dinners were the conchita pibil, which was awesome, and the evening's special - a HUGE honking piece of tuna and four giant shrimps. Absolutely delicious, but too much food. Went for a liquid dessert - Mexican coffee, prepared tableside, very entertaining. Prices a little higher than some places, but worth it.
