Restaurants and Eating out in Acapulco, Mexico
Dining in Acapulco is a joy to the senses and a real experience on its own. It's hard to know where to begin, so for me, I'd go straight for the local flavors of the land.

Usually when it comes to trying out local cuisines, I tend to go for the cheaper places as I feel the locals cook it better than the fancy restaurants. However in this case, my first pick would be the up scale fine dining restaurant Coyuca 22. Located in Caleta (the old Acapulco), Coyuca 22 prides itself on possibly having the most romantic view in the whole of Acapulco coupled with the best seafood. If you get there early, you'll get to see the sunset over the Pacific Ocean, giving you the feeling of falling in love with this place and its exquisite food even more. An important thing to note though, this restaurant only opens from November to April so book accordingly.

Another pretty pricey restaurant but definitely worth trying would be Baikal Restaurant. Located at Carretera Escenica, enter from the normal streets and head down the spiral staircase seemingly walking into the mountain into a restaurant that is considered by many to be the best in Acapulco. With its magical ambiance, stunning views of Acapulco and the glittering night lights, it's only fair that this restaurant serve up a great meal; and it does. Excellent Mexican food with fusion dishes in the mix and a great wine list make this a hotspot for both the locals and tourists.

Off the beaten track a little, a restaurant called Su Casa comes to mind. Another restaurant known for romance, Su Casa sits on a mountain top giving a panoramic view of Acapulco bay with the beautiful palm trees surrounding. The most raved about dish in this place would be the one to start with, its famous Shrimps ala Patrona with its very own homemade sauce. Following that you're given the choice of two menus, one specializing in Mexican dishes and the other, continental cuisine. Sip their famous frozen margaritas to compliment your meal as you dine under the velvet starry sky.

The beauty of eating out in Acapulco is you can choose your budget and still get the same great food. A restaurant called The Big Slice located on the beach side of the La Diana Circle is an example. Cheap Italian pasta's and pizza choices make it a local favorite. If you're in the mood for some taco's then head for the best chain of restaurants - Tarascos. Try the numerous varieties of taco's all which come as cheap as they get, but the taste, ever so fantastic.
