This was the best meal we had the entire week we stayed in Acapulco! My husband and I had a romantic table facing the ocean waves at sunset. We ordered the seafood combination for two which included a whole red snapper, two lobsters and shrimp with rice and fried plantains. Everything was delicious!! My husband and I couldn't stop talking... More

Our taxi driver took us here. They set up for us on the beach. We were the only ones at the restaurant, so we were not sure how it was going to go. It was outstanding! Fresh fish grilled to our linking with sides and drinks, a strolling guitar player who stayed for ten or more songs. One of the... More

My wife and I wound down our trip to Acapulco with a trip to this wonderful place by the ocean. It is an open air, thatched roof joint. Not fancy, but the seafood will blow you away! Being seafood lover's anyway, I wished that I had a few more days, because we would have went often. We had a red... More

The food is excellent, ethnic dishes, so fresh that you choose your fish, lobster, shrimps. The shrimp empanada is amazing, so tasty and a real Mexican dish. Beans sopes are truly amazing if you don't like hot salsa don't try the green one but a little drop is a must, be careful is very very hot but with a wonderful... More

Being from South Louisiana, we know seafood and love it just as much. My wife and I are also foodies, and we were quite impressed. We were supposed to have sunset dinner on the beach, but the Pacific Ocean had other plans, and flooded the big pavilion and beach dining areas; so we had to sit under the first pavilion... More

We ate here after a city tour - the food was a little pricey and pretty much all seafood, so if you dine here make sure that you like what comes from "del mar"!

This was one of the best meals I've ever had!! We were served right on the beach. They showed us the fresh catch of the day (literally fresh...mr red snappers eyes were staring at me). Of course we had to try them all so we got a sampling of everything! They served us snapper, lobster and prawns with rice and... More
