I have been here on one occasion and while the location is good, the food wasn't very impressive (and so said my friends). It was ok quality, but nothing extraordinary about the food from a taste perspective. There are better Mexican places in the city for sure.

Went to Acapulco in December. Really bad service, took 45 minutes without warning, to get food, food basic, options limited and zero vegan options, got a margarita cocktail, couldn't drink it, asked waiter to take it off the bill since it was undrinkable and untouched, he brought manager over who was really rude and told us that their margaritas are...

We called here on a Thursday night without reservation and were lucky to get a seat as the place was very busy. We did have to wait a while for our drinks to come however were rewarded with an apology and the waiter who brought over to us two excellent margarita cocktails as ordered and what I assume must have...

We enjoyed our meal here, service was quick and it was quiet and relaxed. We arrived quite late but this didn't matter as we were served good food in good time. We really enjoyed the fresh lemonade as well. The price was cheaper than a lot of the places nearby. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff.

The chimichanga I had and my boyfriend's chilli del diablo were amazing (well, apart from the rice which seemed to be from a package), the two margaritas we had were probably one of the best margarotas I had, the staff is a bit overwhelmed by the customers I'd say. We asked for a dessert menu, waited for 40 mins and... More

Food was cold and completely dry when it arrived at our table. Staff were very unfriendly. Plates had dried food on the underside of the plate. Had to send food back twice and was like rubber when it came back. To top it all off, the head chef left the toilet without washing his hands....Absolute rubbish....Don't waste your hard earned...

Went to Acapulco with a friend for dinner last night. Really nice and affordable place in city centre, with fantastic food. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The guy who was looking after us gave us some good tips about food and was really friendly. Very positive experience overall. Will go back for some more enchiladas soon!

I have frequented acapulco several times over the last fifteen years and I have to say I have never been disappointed with the food. I do like my food spicy though and the mains do tend to be very mild but enjoyable none the less. I do agree with a previous poster though about the rice tasting like one of... More
