“Great food and service”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

The flavours were amazing and the wait staff was really attentive to your needs. We had flambed shrimp dishes and margaritas, just the best.

“Delicious food, Great value”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Octopus cocktail, flamed shrimp, best coconut shrimp ever and excellent wine. Couple this with "can do" attentive service tells you why we ate 3 breakfasts and two dinners at the Blue Shrimp even though we were staying at an all inclusive hotel.
Highly recommended.

“Excellent food and very attentive and friendly wait staff! ”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

We are in Ixtapa 2/22-2/27 and so far we've eaten here twice. The first time my husband had the sea and sea; lobster and shrimp plate. Although the lobster was good, the shrimp was far better. I had the coconut shrimp and this was also great!
We returned again tonight and both of us had the tequila shrimp. They cook it over a small flame at your table and it was by far the best meal we have had here and probably the best shrimp we've had in the last year! We have two more days and will probably return again!
The prices are very reasonable

“Lalo is back”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Lalo is back at the Blue Shrimp restaurant in Ixtapa. We had the Ixtapa Shrimp, Tequila Shrimp and the House Shrimp dinners. They all were very good. The House Shrimp dinner has cheese added to it, otherwise it is similar to the Ixtapa Shrimp dinner. The week ends still have the music upstairs but it is not very loud as before.

Highly recommend the Blue Shrimp for breakfast or dinners.

“Food ok, watch the bill”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Food was ok, had fajitas. But watch your bill. Ours was wrong, and the people at the next table also had an issue with the 2 for 1 margarita coupon - and the management would not make it right. Get clarification before ordering.
