as close to Authentic as you can get in Dublin

I really enjoyed their food. The atmosphere was nice too; a little too crowded with all of their seating bunched closely together, but worth it. Can't go wrong with their Margaritas either, wish it were a bit bigger for the price (8e)..all in all I would definitely go back. They have a great lunch... read more

We had a full three course dinner at acapulco and the food was absolutely delicious.. We ate the quesidillas, fajitas and the "chimi D" for dessert. The staff were extremely helpful and we landed up having a great meal... Inspite of being vegetarians there were quite a few options on the menu.

We got what we came for: very tasty food, nice ambiance, friendly people. My daughter had the chili con diablo, very good, not too hot, but spicy, and I tried the fajita platter with mixed veggies. Big portion of vegetables, wide variety and very tasty. 4 small tortillas, but that was enough. I also ordered a glass Lime Margarita, not... More

The food was great and so was the staff but the place is designed to be very noisy. At certain points it was uncomfortable to actually be there, having to shout at each other to be heard. So unless you're in a large group or happy to indulge in plenty of Margaritas, beware. No quiet romantic evening here.

It's a bustling place on a Friday evening, it has a lovely atmosphere. I love the authentic and friendly feel. Staff are friendly considering how busy they are. The menu is fantastic, such variety of choice and very good for vegetarians. The food itself is fresh and tasty. And naturally you should order a pitcher of margaritas with your meal,... More

Really enjoyable meal, brief wait despite the restaurant being very busy, waiting area is small and limited so would be difficult if needing to que. Friendly, helpful staff, great cocktails

Ate here with a cousin over the weekend. Ingredients were fresh and well prepared. Only critique is they could use more authentic Mexican flavors and add a bit of spice to the food. Even my irish cousin made that comment. Place is very popular so either go early or make a booking/ reservation

We only had time for a quick lunch but it was very good. Gluten free as well! Service came with a smile and was very attentive. We will definitely go back for dinner when we have time to try other gluten free goodies on the menu.

Acapulco was able to accommodate us even on a ver busy Friday evening. The food was great and tasted magnificent. The frozen margarita I would like to emphasize, it was magnificent.

We were a party of 15 celebrating a friends birthday. They did a set menu which was very reasonable. I tasted the nachos, calamari and chicken wings for starters which were all excellent. I had the Chicken chimichanga for mains and it was amazing. I had the passion fruit margarita and a lime margarita which were gorgeous. We all had... More
