I would highly recommend the Jaguar to anyone looking for a good Mexican restaurant in the area. It was a lovely place to eat, with ocean breezes wafting through. My husband and I weren't into eating in the glass enclosed air conditioned boxes that a lot of restaurants are in Acapulco, so we really enjoyed the open ambiance of the... More

The service is great; they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. On Thursday's live entertainment starts in the afternoon and Ricardo Arcos plays the electronic piano; everyone sings until 11pm. A fun way to enjoy real Acapulco.

I could not believe how well this restaurant coped with a large last minute booking. I turned up here with a group of 17 with no booking on a Tuesday night. There were only a couple of waiters on and a person behind the bar and I feared the service would be slow. I was so wrong. The service was... More

I came early for a group dinner and told the staff I will have tea while waiting for the rest of my party. The place itself is enchanting with the paintings on the walls and the bar and the tables had a colorful setting.. I was very impressed with the friendly staff who knew how to please the customers with... More
