Cabrito has been around a long time and for a good reason their menu items are very consistent from year to year. I tried the chicken mole this time and while I did regret not getting the Enchiladas it was still very good.

The cervesas were ice cold and the bill at the end of the evening does not empty the wallet. I have probably eaten here 30 times since 1987 and have always enjoyed the food.

The goat is excellent--always consistent. This is a dish you won't see on many menus in the US. We always look forward to El Cabrito when visiting Acapulco. Goat is best with a little mole on the side!

Well, we've been coming to ACA the last 9 years and always pass El Cabrito on the way to the gym every morning and I've always wondered what kind of food they served. Well the last year I started to read the reviews here and decided this was the year. We went on Feb 15th this year and it was not that busy so the service was good and attentive, my partner had the El Cabrito (the bbq'd goat head) and I had the chicken mole dish, he also had the enchilades and another dish, enough for three people, mind you he is slim so the waiter probably thought stupid tourist. He ate the whole head, cheeks, eyes, ears, you name it, little did the waiter know that my partner lived in Europe growing up in the mid 60's and he knows about different foods, after he polished the head off he started on the other two and nearly did those in too. The wait staff was so impressed they gave him coconut ice cream on the house. On our way out he did stop by the woman that worked the grill, they let him inside and she was suprised how slim he was to eat all that food, it was very good and we will be back!
