Breakfast anyone? This is the place for great coffee, typical local breakfast, great service, and price. We tried other nearby places and decided to have breakfast at the Blue Shrimp about daily. It is clean, prompt, and located where you can enjoy your time. Visit once and most likely you will return.

Nice place to eat indoors or outside. Lots of food at reasonable prices. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp and couldn't even finish half of the meal it was so large.

This is a newer restaurant in Ixtapa. Excellent menu choices. I would recommend the house shrimp, it is out of this world here. Staff are very accommodating with the owner being there to make sure everything is running good.

found the Blue Shrimp tucked inside the plaza area. Friendly waiters , good meals! I had the fettuccini Alfredo and had them add shrimp. My bf had the chicken fajita's and we shared a bowl of tortilla soup prior to our meal...soooo good. Prices were reasonable and it's a busy place but there were no delays in getting our meals....

What I'd really recommend is going there for a quiet lunch, which we did again for our last day. Prices were very reasonable for some... More

We shared the flambe shrimp and the shrimp fettucine....both were very good and worked well together.The flambe was cooked tableside and the fettucine noodles looked fresh and homemade.Service was good, prices decent, and the the evening entertainment of dancers was a bonus.
