Great staff, very busy but they had a table ready at 10 as promised. Super service. Delicious food. Not the spicy Mexican experience it could be but still very well priced tasty food. Can't go wrong.

We were looking for a break from the traditional Irish food and tried Acapulco. What a surprise! The restaurant is located a short walk from Temple Bar and offers a great atmosphere. The place is busy and reservations are a must. The best aspect is the small indoor balcony which surrounds the room and offers several two-person tables which overlook... More

Visited Acapulco with my wife and was expecting good things. It's not too difficult to go wrong with Mexican food after all. First off , after a bit of a wait waiting for someone to take our order, we got service from a friendly waitress who I can't fault. However there was a more senior waitress who possibly could've been... More

Had dinner here recently before a show in a the Olympia. Had the early Bird menu and this was really good value, pulled Pork starter was amazing, my wife had the delicious Pollock with salsa and I had the more traditional ('to me) tacos. Attentive but not intruding staff were excellent and suggested really tasty Mexican beers. Will be back.

Really good food. Margaritas are a must! Try the tacos and their tostadas, the spicy prawn is delicious!! Deffo coming back here again, great service and a lovely buzz on a Sunday! We walked in and was lucky to get a table downstairs, quite busy! Well worth a visit!

We are here on Friday night. We turned up without a reservation but the staff managed to find us a table within 20 minutes. It's a friendly, lively restaurant and very popular. Tables are a bit close together but that's a small point. The food was really good, we had quesadillas and burritos all of which were yum! Definitely worth... More

A nice ten minute walk from our Hotel Harding just up the road. I'm not a fan of Mexican food to be honest but I was surprised at how nice it was. Myself & the Mrs were soon shown to a table and a jug of water was provided to wash the red wine down. I had the wings for... More

Been here several times and it never disappoints. It's the perfect place for an easy/fun dinner with drinks. The food is always gorgeous (& not that dear), the margaritas are delicious and the atmosphere is great. Can't wait to go back again!

Acapulco. A first visit. I've passed this place alot. The outside is not hugely appealing but the interior was delightful. Warm colours and lovely chilled out atmosphere. The welcome from the servers wasn't great. The food on other people's plates like looked like nice big portions BUT the combo platter, poorly advised by a staff member, was purely deep fried...

Our reservation was for 7.30 and 11 were seated after 5 minutes of waiting. Our waiter was extremely helpful and friendly and made sure we were happy! I had two Passion Fruit mojitos which I recommend as they were made so well and so fresh! I ordered the burger which was very filling and tasty however quite hard around the... More
