30th Birthday!

Me & my partner visited here a couple of nights ago for my 30th birthday whilst visiting from the UK! The atmosphere, staff, decor were all very lovely - very reasonable 2 course early bird menu for €17 or 3 for €22 making this brilliant especially for the area. I'd say the food was nice (had... read more

Visited here with my partner and our friends and were delighted with the service and food! I have a love for Mexican food and can honestly say this was the best I have had by far! Small wine and alcohol list, but the basics were all there. Excellent place and recommend you to try this little gem!

Visited Acapulco recently after doing research for Mexican restaurants for our stay in Dublin and this kept coming out top. After being greeted we were seated in the upstairs area overlooking the main restaurant (very welcome as the ground floor was busy and we didn't want to sit near the door). Both my partner and I went for the early... More

Small and cosy little restaurant in a central location - very easy to find. Staff were welcoming and friendly and attentive. We went between 5 and 7pm so were able to take advantage of the early bird menu which we found was very good value as the food portions for the mains were generous. The food was fantastic! Highly recommended.

Brought here by my daughter as they knew it well. It is one of many restaurants located on Georges Street, its small by standards but every bit of furniture is colourful making for a pleasant dining atmosphere. We found the staff very pleasant and the quality of the food was excellent.

It always seems best to book in Dublin and even on a Sunday this place was very busy, at least early on. Starters were good - pulled pork recommended an main courses tasty too. All washed down with a couple of Margaritas to complete the experience

First off the service was great, pleasant and helpful staff ! The restaurant itself was cold, I'm not a cold person but I put my hoodie back on as I was cold. 2 others at my table did the same and I noticed others in the restaurant with coats on as well. The food was grand , but I'd do... More

Varied menu, great choice, never disappoints. Come early or reserve in advance, gets very busy. Strawberry marguerita's are a must.

Had supper here before Christmas and the vibe was awesome with the parties. Food was very good and the margarita's are deadly. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for great food and a lively atmosphere .

Was at Acapulco in the last few days for dinner. My first time there, but I had heard good reports about it. Acapulco is very centrally located in the middle of Dublin. The décor is interesting; that said, the chair I had was not comfortable at all. Service was friendly, but the food was very slow to come out from... More
