Nice Restaurant

We had the half rack of ribs. They were small, hey, its a BABY goat but quite tasty, certainly not for those who shy from a bit of fatty meant. The standout was the mole, one of the best I have tried in Mexico. For this reason alone you should go. The service fast fast and attentive, maybe not... read more

Nearly 20 years ago I was in Acapulco and never seemed to find time to visit this restaurant, on the 21st April,2015 (my birthday) I found time. The service was mediocre, the food expensive, the specialty of the house (Cabrito) was dry, tasteless and disappointing. Maybe I picked a bad day ,possibly my expectations were too high but I will...

This restaurant is an annual stop for me and I always order the chicken enchiladas in their excellent mole. However, this trip I switched it up after a friend mentioned she had tried the chile en nogada. Only have had this delicious item once before in Puerta Vallarta so I'm not an expert but I really enjoyed my meal. The... More

If you are a goat eater, this is the place. If not, it is also "the place" for El Cabrito's has a fantastic bean soup and their mole is something special! It is casual and while in Aca, we often eat there a couple of times a week. Friendly atmosphere and welcoming staff and owners.

As I said in another review,I never have had a bad meal here in over 20 years.. It is very casual and inexpensive and the food and service is superb. They will also try to accommodate any special requests that they can.
