Frank's is a must go to when in Ixtapa. Beer is a bit more than others -35 pesos - but the shrimp wrapped in cheese and bacon -Frank's Zapatizer - and the delicious wood fired pizzas are so worth it. The serve staff are so friendly and you have to meet Frank

First time we have been to this bar and Frank makes it a point to talk to each of his customers and make sure you are taken care of. The pizza and food was delicious and we made it a point to visit several times on our visit. You can tell he has a lot of repeat customers everyone knows... More

6 pm on a Monday. Not a full house at Frank's. We were seated....and we sat....and we sat...servers passing our table, acknowledging the tables next to us. ...and we sat. 15 minutes later, we got up and left. Lots of restaurants nearby who acknowledge our presence within 2 minutes. We will spend our money where the service is better.

Great place for some live music, a few beers and the Shrimp, cheese and bacon appetizer is outstanding. Frank is a personable host and always greets his guests.

Portions are huge. Staff friendly. Canadian owned I believe. Go before 7 or you could be waiting a bit. Tortilla soup was amazeballs.

We went here on a Friday night, and 2 tables sat after us had their drinks before they ever came to us. They also gave the pizza we ordered to another group, and the rushed pizza they gave us still had raw dough in the crust. I'm sure they are fine on a slow night, but those are few and... More

My wife and I went there to watch a afternoon hockey game. Frank met us as we walked in and set us up with drinks and one of the TV's for the hockey game. Frank and his staff are great. We had a wood fired pizza that was amazing. It was a great afternoon.

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++.
