Description: This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.

Frank and his staff were so great to my daughter and I, even though he had Saskatchewan Roughrider stuff hanging all over (lol). But they treated us with great respect and had a lot of fun while there. Thanks to Frank and Rodrigeuz

“Food is incredible and Frank & Staff go above and beyond”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We were a group of 5 people on vacation in Ixtapa, Mexico the week of April 12th to April 19th and we visited Franks Bar and Grill several times during our trip. We stayed at the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Hotel, which is an all inclusive with great food also. Frank's place has a large screen TV and the guys in our party were keen on watching the hockey game's playing during that week. Then we ordered pizza, (several occasions) which is cooked in a wood fired oven, and it was delicious. The staff was very friendly and we never had to wait for a cold drink.

Where Frank and his staff really shined was during the Earthquake that happened on Friday April 18th. Our hotel sustained damage from the earthquake and while the damage was being assessed, the 5 of us headed to Frank's to calm our nerves and wait until the hotel was open again. We got there at 11:00 am in the morning before Frank's Bar was opened. Frank was there and greeted us as we approached and opened the bar just for us and let us in to have a beverage. He was so generous to allow us to use his phone to call home to Canada to let our loved one's know that we were ok. I will always remember his kindness and willingness to help out fellow Canadians. Thanks Frank!

“Best place in Ixtapa”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The food is amazing, the staff are friendly, the beer is cold, and from the moment you walk in Frank treats you like an old friend. This was exactly what our group needed after a week of resort food and drinks. Real food and cold beer, with a side of sports! Frank's is a must visit if your in Ixtapa! He's located just to the left of the Ixtapa Souvenir market.
