Description: Tony's Asian Bistro, is a small and romantic Restaurant with a spectacular view of Acapulco Bay. Chef Erik Nguyen, is a graduate from Scoffier Institute in France, he has worked with former French President Francois Miterrand, Harrison Ford and Catherine Deneuve and worked with Paul Bocusse and Trois Gros, to name a few. This ¨enfant terrible¨ de la cuisine Francais, has created a French Asian Fusion that will impress everybody with his inspirations. His Duck Magret with Raspberry Sauce and his rack of Lamb Saigon, will make you feel in a different Continent. The wine list includes the top labels that any 3 star Restaurant will boast at fair prices. A restaurant of this level has been overdue in Acapulco. The place is open and surrounded by vegetation and Palm trees that create a fresh and relaxed atmosphere. Service is impecable. There is a set menu plus a daily fresh one with the most fresh ingredients available on that day. All this plus reasonable prices make Tony's Asian Bistro a must during your stay at this famed resort.

“A very nice night out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We had been to a fantastic gastronomic event at Tony's Asían Bistro, but were eager to try the normal menu too. We had dinner with another coupIe and decided to all share a selection of starters including "Arturo's Frommage", goat cheese and white truffle honey which was so good that I was tempted to have another order, we also had melt in your mouth Tuna Tartar, and some incredibly good shrimps. my husband and I shared the Sterling Silver Ribeye which was the biggest, tastiest, tenderest steak that we had eaten in an extremely long time. We all shared a selection of desserts, all of which were mouth-watering. The service was friendly and efficient, the wine flowed and all in all a very pleasant evening. Like MacArthur, "we shall return" !

“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. A beautiful sunset view of the bay. We enjoyed the smoke tuna tartar and spring rolls. The bone-in ribeye was fantastic. The duck was wonderful. Tony came by and introduced himself and made sure we were well taken care of (the staff was excellent). One of our best dining experiences, period.

“Manhattan quality for foodies with Aca view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Took wife and 2 kids, and the staff and owner gushed plenty over us. As foodies, we were super pleased, from apps to dinner. Portions were not petit. Cocktails were subtle and savory. And the view: spectacular view of the city and harbor, kids took plenty of pics of lights and water. The place is small enough to make you feel like royalty. The seafood and asian touches were gorgeous. As good as any place in NYC which we visit often. The owner seemed to appreciate our appreciation of his choices in spice and food parings, which further enhanced our experience. Not a bargain, but you sooooo get what you pay for! Salut!

“Food great, but lacking in ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

When we arrived I was worried. There was a spinning sign for the building. Then we walked in. It looks like a rundown hotel cafeteria.

We sat down. I became even more worried. There was some dirt or spice on my charger. The reject library chair seating has unraveling and torn upholstery. The service is a little awkward.
But then the food came. Wonderful food! Delicious! The food deserves to be served in a better environment. (IMO, I'd get new chairs, darken the ceiling, dim the lights a little, and put candles on the tables.)

Tony came out to say hi and got us a round of drinks on the house. He was nice.

So, if the service and decor were better, I'd give 5 stairs. If you only care about food, go! But I'd be embarrassed to take some of my friends there because it looks rundown and bland.

Thank you for your review and your suggestions on how we can improve our restaurant and how to make it more romantic, I feel you were in the money with your suggestions but most of all, that our food impressed you. You came for dinner and left happy, the rest is constructive criticism. Thank you for taking the time to review us. All the Best. Tony Rullan, owner

“10 out of 10 on all aspects of this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Amazing overall experience from the view, excellent service, fabulous world class food and menu. In particular, the smoked tuna was amazing, the shrimp appetizers, sea bass, steak fillet, and the wine suggested by the fabulous, unobtrusive but attentive staff was perfect.

I loved the space and decor or the restaurant as well. Views of Acapulco bay at sunset into early evening were spectacular but the design of this intimate restaurant afforded tree house like views on three sides, the fourth being the open kitchen which somehow was quiet and again not obtrusive but interesting. The music was background only and the lighting perfect.
