NileGuide Expert Says:
The only place in town where you can hear a real kookaburra bird laughing while you dine. In fact, originally there was a pair chuckling away in the large cage to the right of the entrance, but it is said one died after an inebriated patron blew cigar smoke in its face (in the days before the smoking ban).

NileGuide Expert tip:
Worth reserving to get a good table with a view. Ask for la terraza.
For a long time this was the best restaurant in Acapulco for romantic atmosphere, style, sea views and cuisine and it still is among the top in the Las Brisas area. Decor is white and fresh, with natural materials (wood and thatch, stone and pebbles) without being rustic. It tends to be business lunches at around 2 to 4 pm and more romantic dining or larger groups in the evenings, when the place flickers with candles. It is a favorite with Acapulco's political and business classes, so you can rest assured its dishes (mostly international fare, with a touch of Mediterranean) and prices are not just aimed at tourists. The starters are very good and of the main courses the fish and seafood dishes tend to be the best options. Dress on the formal side.
