They have valet parking ($50 pesos). The atmosphere of the restaurant was great & it’s right on the beach. The food was ok (not great, but not bad). They didn’t have a lot to choose from for kids.

The beers were cold and the food was pretty decent. My wife did not like her dish but didn't say a word. In a very short time they came over and insisted on getting her something else. This never happens, and they truly impressed us....We ran out of time but will be back again. I enjoyed my meal!More

An offspring from the one downtown Acapulco, this is a great place to enjoy seafood and a beer while watching the beach at Hornos. Good service and quick. Sometimes when there is music it can become a bit loud and noisy, specially on holy days....Our usual stop every visitMore

Simple decor, great service, reasonable prices, and an ample variety of dishes, if you like to eat where local people eat and mex. tourists this is the place to go! Do not expect great decor, expect good service and very tasty food. ana

garlic mojara is usually what several in our party order. No one was overly impressed. shrimp done in several different styles: again, pretty average. Assorted other items ordered as well. This USED TO BE a safe choice, years ago. Especially their other locations near downtown,...which we've also been visiting numerous times over the past 20 years. But no need to travel to that sketchy area, since those locations are no better than this one. The prices are very slightly higher at this location. The kids took over these restaurants and seem to have done nothing to maintain the high standing developed over the years by their father.More

The food was great the cook prepared the way I ask for the live entertainment was great but the only thing it's a open concept so you have to deal with the heat and flys .

A must visit while in Acapulco. The shrimps are just amazing, the aguachile is great and the Mojarra al mojo was delicious. Maybe it's not the fanciest place in town but the prices are resanoable and the food is always awesome.

Really good selection of local foods. Good prices. This place is raised off the sand a couple of feet, and the edges are walled/fenced, so beach vendors cannot wander through. But the sand, trees, and ocean are right there in view. At times there is...a local live band that is a nice volume. Not loud club music. 2015 they were not doing pozole thursdays.More

3 different locations. We liked the ones in the Zolcalo area the best. There is also one on the Costera.

Found this place several years ago, was reccommended by our taxi driver and worth the trip. The food is mainly fish, ceviche and local fare, but always fresh and the beer is reasonable also. Great casual afternoon stop.
