Great Find

We found this little gem whilst walking round the city and were not disappointed. Great Mexican food and good value. Advisable to book or get there early evening as it fills up very quickly.

Eaten here every time I'm in Dublin. Good food, and lots of it. Ok prices and friendly staff. Water on the table at once. Eaten some of this and some of that and never been disappointed. Good place and good food to sum it up!

We really wanted to have Mexican food that day, and happen to come across Acapulco. The decoration is very nice, I thing it looks like a real Mexican place. The staff is very nice and tries to help with the dishes. The food though is far from perfect. Apart from the chocolate fudge that is quite nice.

Had a late lunch here yesterday. They don't do their lunch menu on a Sunday so we had to eat off the dinner menu. The food was tasty - we had pork tacos to share as a starter and then chorizo quesadillas and combo fajitas for mains. The fajitas were good enough value as you got all different meats and... More

Expensive and small portion. What I did get was very nice but just poor value for money. (Had vegetarian chimichanga)

I went to this restaurant expecting some really good, authentic Mexican food. To my surprise, it was nowhere near authenticity. The menu and meal didn't even reach the criteria for Tex-Mex. The atmosphere seemed "sleazy" and dull. The beans served was "Bachelor's Beans". Meal was not hot but rather luke warm, going on to being cold. The funnies part was... More

Visited this restaurant with my mother. It's well located in the city centre, but we nearly walked past it, the sign was quite small. The set menu was good value, but as neither of us fancied anything from it, we chose from the main menu, which was not as good value. I had the chimichangas - delicious, but I ate... More

I've spent more than a night ot two here during my stays in Dublin. Walking through the doors is like crossing borders in a second, no passports needed. The interior is very authenthic, colourful and warm. The staff is welcoming and very service minded. I've had several of the dishes from the menu and never had any complaints, very happy... More
