AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This Acapulco restaurant in the Las Brisas complex is named Kookabura, after the Australian kingfisher with the rolling, laughing call. They even have a few on hand in cages, and chances are you’ll hear them during your meal. While the decor is the Mexican style of stone, stucco and thatched roof, the menu makes a nice attempt at fusing French and Mexican cooking, with an emphasis on seafood dishes such as crab tostadas and Chilean sea bass. For dessert, go for watermelon slice sorbet studded with chocolate seeds. The bay vista is one of the main reasons for dining here. For the best views, reserve one of the tables on the terrace, which at night is lit exclusively with candlelight.
