Food is fresh, fast, and delicious and the service is great too. Soups and fish fillet are excellent, and they have a large selection of drinks served in Mexican styled glasses. Located on a main street, you can eat inside or outside.

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.

I am not a big fan of goat my as I find it more sweet than I personally like BUT, the charcoal grilled Baby Goat is simply fantastic with just a hint of sweetness. We have had other menu items that were very good too but I have to say the Baby Goat is my #1 choice here.

El Cabrito is unassuming but the food is delicious and the service is very friendly. The pollo consome con cilantro was special. Great salsa and chips and very reasonable prices.
