45 people upstairs, staff not prepared, manager just chatting with the ladies, no help. $2,00 margaritas - where is the alcohol? I guess we have to spend an extra $5 for a shot of tequila. Happy hour food, so,so, I had the fish and chips - not recommended. But the place has a nice harbor view and if you order... More

Elizabet was our server an she was helpful and attentive. We ordered the $2.00 Margaritas and Gigante Fajita that is enough for 2 . The Steak was particularly good this time...very tender. The location is walking distance to where we live and we enjoy the walk by the water. The chips are always warm and the Salsa is good. The... More

I just had lunch here and ordered the Spinach Enchiladas and they were very good. The hot chips that come to the table are plentiful and addicting. My friend had the Chicken Fajitas and he was happy as well. The place is great for large groups as it is inexpensive.

The food was very good and nice portions served. We had the shrimp fajitas (yummy). There was nice outside seating and fun to watch the kayaks and small boats go by. We would visit again.

I ordered a dish that was supposed to be Tilapia. The fish that was presented to me was not Tilapia - it was a large filet of a pink fish that was most likely a halibut filet. When I pointed this out the the waiter, the cook came out to insist it was tilapia and then referred me to the... More

Stopped for lunch on our coastal ride of the PCH. Very good food, friendly staff, and great service. Very reasonable for the quality of food. Chips and salsa fresh and flavorful. Food was served hot and plentiful. Would definitely stop again if ever in the area. Plenty of room inside and looked like amazing views in the outdoor seating area.

Acapulco is an example of lazy, indifferent cuisine. They have a prime location on the water and could be a great place, but they don't care enough to put energy into the food. I had the Chicken Enchiladas and Chile Relleno, the worst I've ever had. The enchilada was dry with no discernible sauce or cheese, just tasteless. The relleno... More

I've been to this restaurant many times with my mother and friends when visiting my home town. The location is great - next to a pretty water canal at the end of a large shopping complex - and the interior is beautifully, bright-colored but comforting Mexican. The service is always good. The food is always good and plentiful. I grew... More

Mother's Day brunch was delicious. I have a lot of dietary restrictions and had no problem finding several things that I was able to eat that were delicious. I've never seen a selection like this. There was a kid's buffet area with pizza, cereal, sausages, etc. There was a waffle station, a dessert section, a taco station, an omelette station,... More

I have been here many times and find that the food is okay, but the view of the marina from the patio is outstanding and makes for a great evening or Sunday brunch. We mostly come for the brunch which has an okay selection of foods, so you will not go away hungry. When you add in the Champaign and... More
