This restaurant is the hotel Lupita’s restaurant
Reception is the kitchen. This is an open kitchen where you can see everything that happens. This restaurant is not a 5 star restaurant but it more than makes up for it with it’s chef, Lorena, who will do what you want. Here, the client IS always right.
There is a À la carte menu, a comida corrida (plat du jour all included) and whatever you want if you let her know in advance. For example, I was explaining a dish of shrimps that I was served in Torreon and she told me of a dish of shrimp that she could prepare for me. I ate it the following day: fresh shrimps cut in half, Philadelphia cheese between the 2 halves and bacon to hold the halves together. In the oven and serve. Delicious.
This restaurant does not serve alcohol but if you bring your own wine or beer, there won’t be a problem.
The service is done by two persons, one of which is Lorena’s daughter, a little slow but charming.
The price is more than decent.
If you are not from Acapulco, do not go to Acapulco in your car or a rented car. Your chances of getting a ticket are very good. If you get stopped by a cop, do not let him know that you are in a hurry or returning somewhere far. If you do, the amount you will have to pay in mordida (graft) will be astronomous. For example, I paid 3,000 pesos for something I didn’t do: crossing a pedestrian passage without stopping. This is an interesting infraction since nobody stops. It’s as if it was created for tourists. (Note: If I hadn’t paid the cop in cash, my papers were seized, the cost of the ticket would have been 5,200 pesos, I would have had to sleep another night in Acapulco etc.)
Also, take the bus, not a taxi. If you must, ask the price BEFORE you enter. The trips are a lot more expensive than those in Mexico DF and taxis do NOT have taximeters. Open season on tourists on foot. One Mexican tourist we met was charged 70 pesos for a trip of 800 meters. We were charged 80 pesos for a 3.2 kilometers trip. Mirta and I thought this was a rip off. And Acapulco has the gall of having a publicity that says “Habla bien de Aca”. Before I “Talk well of Acapulco”, Acapulco should install taximeters and crack down on crooked police.
