This is our favorite seafood restaurant in Acapulco. The ceviche is very good and we love the special shrimp salad. We also enjoy the shrimp with mango sauce.

Came here with my father for an early dinner. We ate some fish quesadillas and ceviche for appetizers. Fish quesadillas where good but the ceviche was the best I've had. It was fresh. Just too much ketchup in the ceviche. But the best part was the catch of the day. Snapper fried whole. It was worth the trip.

I really did not like the food. The quality of their seafood was not the best. Service was average. The waiters were having fun and talking to each other instead of taking care of us. Would probably not return

We went for a wedding in Acapulco, so we stop here to lunch. The place is small but it's nice for the kind of restaurant that it is. Prices are ok, but as someone mentioned, the portions are on the small size. The quality of the food is good, we ordered Pellizcadas, which are kind of shark (cazon) tacos. The... More

We had a group of 8 for dinner. The salmon appetizer is delicious. Fried shrimp was heavily breaded; the fish swimming in sauce but tasty and fresh. Prices are reasonable; and the waiters aim to please but there is obviously a disconnect in the kitchen. We were served in shifts! some were having their appetizers while others having main courses.... More

Not sure why the early closing time. Very poor Margaritas, small and not very tasty! The Marisco Fettuchini was a little dry. Others had the fish and were satisfied. Those who had the dessert were happy.

The portions are small compared to the price, the quality of the food and the service are very good. If you are real hungry this is not the place to go.

If you would like to eat fish or seafood with a good taste, but not always the same as offered everywhere in Acapulco, then I would recommend this palapa restaurant. And they attend you quickly, the waiters are very friendly and the chief keeps a good eye on his restaurant organization.

We visited this location last evening and found the service and food to be excellent. I had the fish filet and the shrimp and cheese apetizer and my other half dined on the special shrimp salad, which she said was to die for. Afterwords we had coconut ice cream and corn cake. A great meal.
