Here, there is a different culinary concept offered, for the dishes are a combination of European and Mexican cuisine. The final result is a fusion of exotic flavors that have to be tasted to be believed, such as the Octopus Salad in Mango Dressing, or Filet of Huachinango Fish dressed in butter and three citrus juices. A modern terrace on the edge of the beach, illuminated by candles and with a view of the bay, guarantees a wonderful evening.
Our son and daughter-in-law were married on the beach in Acapulco and had their wedding reception at El Olvido. We picked it because we were on a cruise and it was conveniently located just a short cab ride from the dock. It could not have been more perfect. The food was amazing, the ambiance, romantic and the view of the bay to die for!! In fact, we are going back to Acapulco on a family reunion cruise this month and we will celebrate their fifth anniversary at El Olvido.
The best restaurant in Acapulco. Undoubtedly. Everything was excellent!
The best view!
The best food!
The best service!
The place is spectacular, with a terrace incredible. I commend the roll of two fish and shrimp to coconut.
Though the street side location is inauspicious -- you have to go through a mazy little retail mall off the Diana Circle to get to the entrance -- inside, El Olvido is a simply beautiful restaurant. You can dine outdoors right above the beach, under the palms and stars, with the waves crashing in... very romantic. Aside from the waves and the soft background music, the place really is quiet and very conducive to an intimate dining experience. We found the service to be flawless.
For "fusion" style cousine, we found our dishes to be a bit bland. The food was tasty, well-prepared and well-presented, but this wasn't a standout culinary experience. Prices here are very much the same as you would expect to pay for a fancy dinner in a major US city. We thought the wine list was unexceptional.
Fussing aside, the bayside location and ambiance make this a worthwhile place to dine. It wasn't the best food we found in Acapulco, but we did enjoy it thoroughly.
My wife and I eat here every time we go to acapulco.
The food is fabulous ( they also have a pre-fixe), the atmosphere is hard to beat (right on the ocean). If you are staying in a golden zone hotel - you can walk here, right off the diana circle in the plaza Marbella shopping mall to the rear.
I have been to El Olvido on each of my visits to Acapulco going back to its opening week and have never been disappointed. As with all restaurants in Acapulco overlooking the bay, it has very ordinary entrance through a small shopping mall, and you wonder whether it is worth it - it is!
Once inside, the full, tiered size of the restaurant becomes apparent. Book early and get a table next to the bay wall - you will totally unaware of anything but the amazing view and the sound of the sea, although the intimate background music only adds to the ambience.
The food is an unusual mix of mexican and european and is excellent, as is the wine list. The service is good, although staff are not always in evidence when required, but this does not take away from the overall experience of enjoying an extremely well-balanced and tasty meal in one of the best settings in north america.

Serving a variety of typical Mexican dishes, this restaurant is on the coast and has a façade that looks very
much like the terrace of a Mexican hacienda. The menu includes Pozole (a stew incorporating grains of maize and ...
