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

Sebastian Hernandez, acapulcoforall.com, took us out to this quaint restaurant for a truly wonderful dinner. The food was very good and large portions. We watched the sunset and listened the ocean throughout the meal. We complimented the chef many times that night!!!

If you are in Acapulco you must visit here for a sunset meal. I would suggest visiting during the week as the weekends can be very busy with many locals enjoying the view and food as well. We visited on a week night and there were only three tables that were there. Guaranteed palapa with a great sunset view. The... More

One of the best meals we ate in the Acapulco area. Be aware, this is a shabby beach bungalow-type place with palapas in the sand, not a dress-up place, so bring the whole family, wear your bathing suit under a beach dress, and bring your bug spray. After eating there the first time, we would go again earlier in the... More

We went there with my family of 6 people. We personally only care about the food and the view. And this was amazing. Very friendly staff and great prices. We can only recommend this place. Thanks also to our tour guide Ricardo Morales who recommended this place.
