“Romantic Evening at the Marina”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

My husband and I enjoyed an evening of good service and good food at El Galeon. He had the Beef Medallion and I a pasta dish. Both meals as well as the Calamari (along with the chipotle tartar sauce) were very good. The atmosphere of the marina is very romantic. it was a bit warm at first, but they were able to turn on a few fans to get the air moving. We enjoyed the experience.

“Nice Setting and Good Food”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We went to El Galeon for dinner. The bill was $45 US dollars for dinner + $40 for a nice bottle of wine. My husband had the tenderloin steak with mustard sauce and he liked it very much. Though the first time it came out very rare and he had to send it back to get it medium. I had the El Galeon soup which was great. The Caesar salads were also good. The marina setting was pleasant and the service was super friendly.

“A nice evening”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We've been visiting El Galeon (located at the Marina) for a number of years. The advent of all-inclusive resorts in Ixtapa has taken a heavy toll on this restaurant (and many of the others here at the Marina and elsewhere). On this most recent visit, we were well pleased with the menu, the quality and the service. The setting is very nice as well!

“the breakfast was stellar”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

once again I visited el galleon in ixtapa this time for breakfast. the atmosphere is top drawer it is a wooded structure like an old ship overlooking the marina and the boats very romantic or just plain interesting eye candy...they have some great rejuvenating drinks as well as wonderful omelettes and traditional American style breakfast home made jam and awesome coffee priced no more than anywhere else around here a bargain considering the quality of food and the view

“A Good Dinner”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Nice atmosphere at the Marina. The food was good but a over-priced simply because you are at the Marina.
