Charming artwork on the walls; visit on Thursday Pozole!

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.

Awesome authentic Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Music and dancing on Thursday nights. Best place for Pozoli in Acapulco! Staff is friendly and helpful.

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.

The food was good, felt little over priced. You can get the taste of Mexican food not just beans and Tortillas. Worth a visit,
