This is the second time we have been to this restaurant. The first time was in 2009, just a year after it opened. We loved it so much that we had to return a second time, 2013. The view is stunning and as daylight changes to dusk, you experience the wonderful lights of the bay and of Ixtapa. We shared a tasty Chateaubrind, cooked to perfection by Chef André. He was a delight to meet and spent time speaking with his customers. We enjoyed our chat with him in French. He suggested the dessert of strawberries, finshed with black pepper. I would have never imagined that black pepper on strawberries could be so delicious, but it takes the flambé in the kitchen to bring the flavours of rum and pepper together. The evening was so relaxing and fun. We recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat. We will return hopefully a lot sooner than four years. Merci Chef André, c'était fantastique!

We had dinner at this restaurant. My friend had shrimp salad, 2 glasses of win. We shared a skirt steak; it was tender and delicious. They also gave us an appetizer on the house which tasted like chicken mcnuggets, it was all right. The food and service were good. The place is small and has 3 outdoor tables and about 4 tables inside. People make reservations for the restaurant. Very nice view, nice atmosphere, the music did not go with the type of restaurant. The restaurant decor reminded me of the movie Casablanca, nice decor... not for Argentinian food. All in all, i liked the restaurant, however, it was overpriced. The bill came out to 760 pesos which is around 75 to 80 US dollars, excessive prices.

We have a condo in Ixtapa and we often go to eat at la Pampa. The restaurant serves Argentina cuisine and is excellent. Last night I had a steak rib eye and my husband had a rack of lamb. It was delicious. We recommend this place without any hesitation.

We went for dinner last sunday night, and even though we had a good overall experience, the bill was excessive. My wife had a tuna carpaccio that was very good, and she had coconut breaded shrimp that were really good. I had a seafood soup that was good, but not great, and an aged rib eye that was passable, yet too fatty, so half of the steak was unedible since it was 100% fat, not, the edible part was very well cooked and tasty. Don't get me wrong, it is a good restaurant, but it is not worth the price tag. Maybe because it is a 7 or 8 table restaurant, but is that our fault?
