The food was absolutely delicious and the service was also very good. Definitely recommend the fajita platter and the deep fried ice cream!

Good tex-mex menu food was tasty if not quite spicy enough for my taste. Although they were busy we didn't feel rushed

I think the best you can say about this restaurant the french fries were delicious. In all truth it is one step above micky D's or supremacs. The waiter was busy but kept his cool. The music was loud..everyone was shouting above the music . No doubt helped along by the alcoholic beverages. I doubt I will ever custom this place again. My search goes on for that diamond among the coals. So if you are having a few beers and you need a feeding. This joint is for you

Had dinner here with three girl friends on Sat 31st. The atmosphere was fantastic. Great buzz about the place. We were seated at the back of the restaurant to the right in a sort of booth which gave us some privacy without ruining the atmosphere. The staff were very busy but the service was excellent. Our waiter asked each time he passed if we were good for drinks etc and gave sound advise about the menu options. I am not a big fan of Mexican food usually but I loved the food at Acapulco. It has something for everyone I think. Our starters arrived fairly promptly and were delicious, The margaritas are just fab. We had a pitcher between three of us of the standard one which I think is a lime one and it was divine! We had another! If you are looking for a fun night out I would recommend this place. There are lots of good bars around the location too so all in all a great spot for a fun night out in my opinion.

I LOVE mexican food. My husband and I had our first dinner date here about 6 years ago and we booked dinner here last Saturday for our 1st wedding anniversary dinner. The decor is always amazing, you walk in here and it immediately looks and smells like a mexican restaurant. Have always loved the food here but I have a couple of negatives about our most recent visit. I don't agree with anyone giving a review that says the staff are amazing. For the last few years, whenever I come here..you may get seated pretty quickly but takes forever before someone comes to take your order. This time round...we placed our order...got the jalapeno poppers to start and we both got the fajitas..I got prawn and my husband got the chicken & beef. Jalapeno poppers were very tasty, they always are. The fajitas were a little disappointing. The hot plates the filling is served on only stayed hot for about 15 mins. They are usually roasting! usually the fajita wraps are served covered in what looks like a little steaming basket..they came this time with no lid and they went cold very soon after we got served. I think our biggest criticism is the staff. Not ONCE did anyone come over during the time we were there to see if we were enjoying the food or to see if we wanted more drinks. I thought this was very, very poor. THEN to top that off....when we got our final bill...what should have been about a €60 bill was €122! Turns out they had placed another table's order on top of our order. You would think the staff would have checked that first before giving it to us. This is a great mexican restaurant...the only thing I have faulted in the last few years i've been coming here is the staff. They really need to up their game..it really does take away from a visit. I would still go again but I don't think I have tipped the last couple of times I've gone here..that says it all.

The service can be a bit slow and lacklustre, however the food and atmosphere is brilliant and the prices are very reasonable. Portion size is really good too.

The staff were lovely and the service quick. Atmosphere was lacking but then it was early on a Wednesday night. We had booked but there wasn't a need at that hour. The early bird was lacking so we ordered al a carte and were a bit disappointed tbh. I'm not a Mexican food aficionado but I've certainly had better. Handy spot in town for a quick bite in pleasant surrounding though.

We had no booking but there were able to fit us in (2) after a short wait. I had the yukatan chicken skewers with sweet potato fries and corn on the cob - all delish and washed down with a very tasty strawberry margarita....deep fried ice-cream to finish.. very full and satisfied leaving and hope to return soon. (dining companion also had no complaints)
