This is a connoisseur's restaurant, with some outstanding seafood preparations, such as the “pescado huérfano” (orphaned fish) which is steamed and gently spiced.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Local ladies and gents come to Pacos' for a special meal to celebrate a family event. They tend to dress up for the occasion, so you will fit in better if look as though you have made a bit of effort with your appearance.
Paco's is elegant, in a local, Acapulco kind of way, with thatched roof and simple tables. The real effort goes into its deservedly-famous cuisine, which is remarkably inexpensive. Chose from the chef's specialties, and this is a great place to tuck into affordable langoustines "al ajo" (in garlic) when they are in season. Remember Paco's is only open for lunch, and that lunch in traditional Acapulco is enjoyed between about 2.30 and 5 p.m.
