Had a great time at Acapulco! Fab decor and staff but the biggest attraction is the amazing food! I went with my sons (aged 5 and 7) and they LOVED the kids quesadillas, which came with free ice-cream! We tried the Elotes (Mexican street corn) which was another big hit. I had the borrito which was stuffed full and delicious. I'd recommend going earlier in the evening with kids, as this popular restaurant gets really busy, but we'll definitely be back again!

10/10 for everything. The food was delicious! We had the shared combo for starter which gave a variety of different foods to try, we then had the enchiladas and the chilli del diablo for our main. We only managed one dessert between us which was the deep fried ice cream and only for we were so full we would have ordered a second! Staff very friendly and chatty. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

They have a very nice food selection here and all I ever tasted was good. I got a burrito and it was big and delicious. Service is sometimes a bit chaotic but as we arrived early because of First Table the place was not full yet and we got everything fast with no issues.

Had an amazing experience in Acapulco last Saturday. We were greeted as soon as we went in, and seated straight away by a very friendly staff member, and had a lovely window seat.

Great choice from the menu, we had the combination starter which was amazing, for mains we had fajitas and the chilli beef wraps, delicious.

To finish off we had two Margaritas, the best Margaritas I have ever had.

The staff were super efficient, the ambience was fab, loved the Mexican music in the background.

Will most definitely be returning in the near future.

The atmosphere at Acapulco was second to none, the service was an added bonus. Me and my friend shared the combo starter which was outstanding and allowed us to sample all that’s to offer. The main courses were indulgent and presented beautifully. We even shared churros which was a special that day, it was a perfect end to an amazing meal. We will be back!

Great food at an extremely reasonable price, and the place is decorated nicely too

Visiting Dublin just for the day and that morning decided to look at first table options. Booked Acapulco as it’s one of my favorite spots in the city center. We ordered two starters, two mains, two drinks and a dessert. The food was fantastic - not overly fussy but incredibly tasty. It’s such a nice treat eating there. Our bill only came to €35! For such great food, atmosphere and something different - first table made our day trip extra special. It’s a brilliant incentive to eat out more and try new places. Thanks guys - from two happy customers who can’t wait to return

All staff were super friendly and helpful, I needed to make a small change to my main meal and it wasn't an issue whatsoever. Food was as delicious as ever, absolutely would tell anyone to order the passionfruit margheritas - they are amazing!! And the sharing platter for two is ideal as a starter. It's still one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin

- dined at Acapulco on

Delicious food, excellent service, staff couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating to our requests.
Very slight order mistake, which we had no problem with and staff couldnt have been nicer about, but was swiftly changed and we were pleasantly surprised to be compensated with a glass of wine each.
Very enjoyable experience we will be back and definitely recommend. Thank you:)

A truly excellent experience with warm, courteous staff. The food was outstanding, full of flavor and so fresh. We shared plates and everything was delivered in time with each other so we were never left waiting. As a bonus, the delicious margaritas were on offer and devoured. I highly recommend the sharing combo plate as a starter between two, you won't be disappointed!

Had a lovely Vegan meal here, although the menu did not state specifically what items were suitable for vegans, the waiter had no problem explaining in detail, how many of the menu items could be adapted to meet our dietary needs. Service was quick and although we had a voucher did not feel rushed in any way. Will definitely eat here again!

- dined at Acapulco on

The food was so fresh and really well presented. Portions were a good size. Would have liked a bit more Mexican music in the background. The service could have been better. The bill was issued without the discount. I would prefer if the food and drinks were billed separably to avoid confusion.

A great dining experience last night in Acapulco, the food was tasty, the service excellent and a wonderful atmosphere in the place.

Acapulco’s is by far my favourite restaurant in Dublin so I am a bit biased. I try to go as much as my eternal student budget will permit, which isn’t often enough! This deal is excellent value- the food is amazing as always and was a bit more in my price range. I had the Nachos Supreme and the fajitas. Delicious! The nachos were obviously freshly prepared- and the guacamole was as gorgeous as ever. The beef in the fajitas seemed a bit under done compared to previously but it was melt in mouth soft and I’m a medium-rare kinda girl anyway so it didn’t bother me.

My partner wasn’t drinking but because of the excellent value on meal- I was able to indulge and have two passion fruit margaritas. So tasty and just enough kick :)

Honestly, the food even at full price is worth it but with this deal- you can get an early dinner and drinks for excellent value. I would definitely recommend and will try to keep Acapulco’s special by trying all the other available restaurants on First arable, otherwise I’m gonna turn into a regular! My first time using website and I’ve already sent link on to loads of people. Gonna use again this week for before a concert.

We went on a Thursday. The ambience was quiet (only one other table) when we arrived at 5 p.m . This was nice and peaceful. The place began to get busy at around 6 p.m. I got the veggie burrito and my partner got the enchiladas! His was amazing and he rated it 10/10. I enjoyed mine too but would rate it 8/10 as I am fussy with burritos and didn’t love the vegetarian filling . The desserts were divine - chocolate gluten free brownie and deep fat friend crepe . The service was excellent ! We will definitely be going back again but next time I will try the enchiladas as they looked amazing .

- dined at Acapulco on

The vibe within the restaurant was great! Definitely recommend the sharing plate to start! Cocktails were strong and tasty. Will definitely be back soon
