Fresh food. Great service. Inexpensive,

Our concierge recommended this restaurant, and it was a treat. Lovely view of the ocean, particularly at sunset. The food was very nicely presented, served by nice,patient, helpful people (for us from the States who had lots of questions). A wonderful experience and a great value.

You can't go wrong by going here. the restaurant is much closer than all the others that serve the typical pescado a la talla while having the same prices and a nice view. There are other tasty appetizers which you shouldn't miss.

Roberto Alarcon took us to Esmirna for my husbands birthday dinner. They showed us the catch of the day and let us choose the fish we wanted and told us how it would be prepared. The shrimp were the best I have ever had. The fish were very fresh and tasty. No fishy taste at all. Eating right on the... More

This place was awesome! We were worried it would be "cheesy " but it so wasn't! Very romantic and amazingly fresh seafood, well prepared! You get your own cabana on the beach, they bring out a platter of fresh seafood for you to choose from...lobster, huge shrimp and a huge red snapper...all fresh caught locally! We chose a mixed seafood... More

This restaurant was suggested by our driver, Roberto Alarcon (who is AMAZING). He made reservations for us and we were greeted with a lovely table setting right on the beach. The view was beautiful! The seafood was AMAZING and fresh. It was a little pricey, but considering the quality of the food, it was a good value. We were interrupted... More

If you want a quiet beach front restaurant with good food this is a great option. You can take the sun bath and eat in a very casual setting with a lot of locals around. Been a regular visitor to Acapulco I can tell you this is one my favorites and it s pet friendly. Only thing is about 35... More

Now I know I don't like red snapper, raw or cooked, I just don't like its texture, so that's just me, but I gotta say, the fish was well cooked/grilled, although they didn't even clean properly so there were scales! Lobsters and prawns were very good. This part of the ocean is just naturally terrible because the waves are too... More

Esmirma del Mar is a Barra Vieja sea food restaurant with a really nice view of the Pacific Ocean. The food is pretty good and there's a great cost-benefit ratio. Service is a bit slow but the waiters and manager were really nice. My only minor issue is that we weren't informed that credit cards were not accepted at that... More
