Coyuca 22

Old-school hillside eatery overlooking Acapulco

Hours 5pm-11pm, Mon. - Sat.

Av Coyuca 22 Fracc Las Playas Acapulco 39390 Mexico

It's one of the best views in Acapulco, often overlooked for newer dining spots like Pampano or Becco Al Mare. Diners pass through a set of rod iron gates and past a series of elevated bar tabled into the main terrace dining room with its old school outdoor décor from Acapulco's heyday and one of the best views in town. But keep your eyes on the view, or arrive after dark, because on closer inspection many of the furnishings along the terrace and plaster in the pool have begun to show the signs of neglect despite the heavy crowds that turn out every night for terrific dinners. Terrace dining takes preference here, if you're seated anywhere indoors you'll likely miss out on one of the best wind-free locations for dinner in town with views of the old and new city.

The Food

Diners often miss out on the nightly prix-fixe menu that is a great value for anyone looking to order more than just an entrée. Italian specialties like rich pasta dished topped with fresh seafood would be better if the pasta was homemade, sometimes a bit overcooked or stuck to other pieces. Meat dishes like slow-cooked Osso Bucco and a delicious lamb chops and veal scallopini are staff favorites. Seafood lovers will want to try the shrimp Provencal or the exquisite grilled lobster tails.

Last Word

The restaurant is closes from May through October for the rainy season.
