Traveling with the family. Four adults & 2 kids. We each had something different. Lasagna, seared tuna, grilled snapper and coconut shrimp. Everything was delicious and the portions were generous. With wine, beer and sodas, total bill with tip was around $70.00. Make this a stop on your itinerary!

We ate there a couple of times last year and once this year. The food is good, but a somewhat limited selection. If you are craving a hamburger and fries they make an excellent one. The Tortilla soup is good, with lots of fresh avocado, and the pork chop grilled in tequila is to die for. The tables are quite... More

Excellent food, drinks and service. The staff are very professional, warm and friendly! We enjoy all of the entrees on the menu, but Ixta's hamburgers are especially amazing!

We dined here twice during our stay in Bucerias last month. Both times, the food & service was excellent. The owner came by each table to ask about our dinners & chat. The seared tuna with mild wasabi sauce was a particular favorite. Best tortilla soup in Bucerias. Reasonable prices for a restaurant in a beach town. Definitely recommend this... More

We planned to go to Ixta Sunday evening but went online and found it was closed on Sunday. We were walking somewhere else and discovered Ixta was open on Sunday for two weeks in February. We had the catch of the day served with wasabi butter. It was delicious. The vegetables were perfect, the service was great, and the chef... More

This is a MUST STOP IN place. The atmosphere is great and Pierre and his staff are the best. If you want a great meal check it out. Best Caesars and French fries in Bucerias! Give them a try, you you will NOT be disappointed.

Walking past this location during the daytime, one would scarcely know there was anything there.....just a cleanly swept patio with a set of closed metal doors. But come nightfall, the transformation is incredible! Bathed in subtle, lambent lighting, the tables are positioned on the forecourt, festooned with festive red linen and sparkling cutlery ....the scene is set , The owner,... More

Owner Pierre Baerswyl and his fantastic team delight locals and visitors alike with great food and service with an ambiance that is friendly yet professional. Chef Abraham Madrid has a marvelous gift for bringing an international flair to the very best of Mexican cuisine. From Tequila Shrimp to True Soup to the best Enchiladas in the Riviera Nayarit (according to Pierre himself), you will always enjoy the freshness and care that goes into every dish. Yummy Lime, Mango and Strawberry Margaritas and icy cold beer are part of an All-Day Happy Hour and busy Friday nights with live music by 'Son 4' make IXTA the perfect place to meet locals and visitors alike. Reservations are not required but recommended for Live Music Nights.
