I would recommend the nachos for starter, chimichanga for main with a side of patatas bravas.

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

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!

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.

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 .

My two friends and I decided on Acapulco as our venue for a 21st birthday dinner. It wasn’t our first time eating there and will definitely not be our last! We were seated straight away when we told the host we had booked with first table. The mains were delicious and the desserts and cocktails even better, with very speedy service. The waitress noticed it was my friend’s birthday and brought out a candle in her dessert with a shot of tequila and a sombrero for her to wear. It truly was the full Mexican experience.

Had a wonderful meal. We started with two margaritas, salty and strong and opted for a mixed platter. We were not disappointed, crunchy taco shells, creamy jalapenos and the most delicious chicken Chipotle wings. The guac is amazing! For mains we had skewers with mango salsa and chicken fajitas. You have to try the deep fried ice cream!! We were stuffed. Throughly enjoyed the meal. The staff were very attentive and we will 100% be going back
