Dinner

Always a great experience here. Food is great, margarita's are delightful (but be warned, they don't skimp on the alcohol) price is very reasonable. 2 mains, 2 deserts and 2 drinks - under € 30

Very central mexican restaurant with friendly staff and ok prices. The strawberry margarita was better that the lime one which didn't have enough lime taste in my opinion. We ordered some nachos and chicken and beef fajitas to share and they were just delicious.Very good salsa too. I'd definitely go back next time I'm in Dublin

Acapulco has been an old favourite of mine for quite some time so when my brother-in-law's sister came over from Liverpool it was a first choice for a group of us to dine. The food is always very nice, and it is normally worth the snobbiness we've learnt to expect of some of the staff. A group of ten of... More

This place has become a real regular for me. Acapulco by far has the best nachos and burritos I've ever had in Dublin -I literally haven't had anything else on the menu as it's so good. Lovely decoration and atmosphere, staff are very friendly too. And let's not forget about the guacamole! Would really recommend for a good hearty mexican... More

Really cannot fault this place having discovered it a fortnight ago. Nachos are the best around, chimichanga is ridiculously good and the margaritas pack a punch. Service is quick, staff are friendly and happy to make recommendations. What more could you want?

Tried this restaurant out for the first time after hearing so many good things about it. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent. The restaurant itself is decorated in theme and the food is absolutely delicious. We had nachos and tacos to start with and chicken peanut mole and enchiladas for mains and finished off with deep fried ice cream.... More

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.
