Took friends who were visiting. You can pick out your own fish. They will even do 1/2 fish. You pay by the kilo. Took a boat trip into the lagoon. Okay--nothing special.

I did not give a 5 stars because of hygiene. I understand flys are everywhere and especially outside but, at least, keep the house where the you select the fish cleaner. Besides that the fish is the best I have ever had, even an expensive restaurant of New York falls short.

I visit Beto Godoy every now and then when in Acapulco, basically for the traditional environment. The food is acceptable, although I think is somewhat pricey for what it is. I went a couple of days ago with my one year old (her first time) and she did not have a good time. The heat, the poor hygiene and the... More

This restaurant is probably the best experience you have in Acapulco for local food and one of the main dishes in Mexico, which is "pescado a la talla". I recommend go early to barra vieja, and spend the day at the beach and when you feel hungry go to eat here. The service was excellent and not expensive for the... More

My husband and I eat there often but the last time we went we decided to stop visiting because it has a lot more negative than positives. The food is too expensive for what they offer. If they expect to charge as they do they better offer a better pool, a cleaner place and a better service. They are well... More

A 15 minute drive south of the Acapulco suburbs of Diamante lies this hidden gem that is easy to miss. Nestled against the beach and a lagoon, this seafood restaurant catches, prepares and serves some of the tastiest fish you will ever eat. You are even able to stop by their kitchen and view the open fire pit style grills... More

We went to Beto Godoy through a reknowned local friend's recommendation. Unfortunately what we encountered was the complete opposite to what he told us on good faith. Please let me note that I'm a Mexican national, a fairly seasoned traveller and camper used to beachside dining at shacks along both Mexican coasts and am not really that nitpicky. But let's...

We went here thanks to the recommendations of the Hotel's staff and it worth the 25Km to Barra Vieja Town. This restaurant really is local and you can taste the locally famous and exquisite La Talla fish of Acapulco. Sit on one of the many many tables on the restaurant placed in the sand and get ready to taste a... More

We ate a delicious bass "a la talla" at this restaurant. A friend recommended it and we are in agreement in that if you're going to eat at this place you will love.
