Acapulco + Zihuatanejo restaurants

Restaurants in Acapulco, Ixtapa, and Zihuatanejo showcase the distinctive cuisine of Mexico's Guerrero state. At Acapulco's La Cabaña de Caleta, the catch of the day appears in ceviche acapulqueño—drenched in cocktail sauce. At Baikal, in the Las Brisas hills, chefs prepare sea bass à la talla—with a spicy mayonnaise rub. Vendors hawk tiritas (thin strips of fish and sliced onions marinated in lime juice) at rustic stands on Zihuatanejo's Playa la Ropa, while the cooks at La Sirena Gorda serve up saucy fish tacos al pastor. Other not-to-be-missed dishes include pozole, a hearty hominy stew traditionally served on Thursdays—look for signs announcing "Pozole Hoy" outside restaurants. Locals tend to eat lunch, the main meal, in mid-afternoon and dinner around 9 pm. Reservations are a must for stylish spots like Baikal.
