The salsas and guacamole are great but the main dishes are just ok. Good atmosphere and service though.

We stayed near el zorrito and it was way better than number 81. The staff was freindly, the food was good and plentiful and the assorted tacos was awesome with the chips, salsa and beans. The atmosphere was also quite lively at 7pm which most places were empty at that time of day, not this one.

We enjoyed this place 3 times during our short stay because the food was authentic and good. The place is cute and had great service. The waiter even helped us catch a cab at a "non-American" price.

Recommended by our concierge for genuine Mexican food, we gave this place a try. It was an interesting experience, but by no means spectacular (even at the relatively low cost). The menu was limited, the staff was unusually surly for this city and the food was just ok. As mentioned by others, I really wish we hadn't been bothered all... More

Our tour guide Roberto Alarcon recommended this restaurant - he was right. We had a wonderful time interacting with the staff using Roberto as our interpreter. He knew what to suggest for a selection of food for our table and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We experienced some of the local culture and the young man that entertained us was... More

doesn't really look like much but it's clean and the food is great. Don't try to be cute with Spanish...I ordered enchilada and got ensalada, it was what I needed anyway.

This is our second year vacationing in Acapulco and Zorrito’s was a frequent stop during the first year. Unfortunately the variety of the menu changes little and during our most recent visit, the half chicken I ordered was very much overcooked as was the red snapper that my wife had ordered. It has not made my, “I will never eat... More

Outdoor dining next to the sidewalk with peddlers continually interrupting our dinner. Food was only mediocre though we were told it was indicative of authentic Mexican cuisine. Three of the five of our party thought it bland and tasteless. Very disappointed.
