We had a great meal of in-house made spaghetti, halibut, and lemon custard. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere warm and vibrant, and the food delicious. The owner Michael is amazing -- friendly, genuine, and fun. The prices were reasonable.

Excellent dinner here on a Sunday night. We split the grilled pork chop and the special soup - squash in coconut milk with tomatoes, rice, onions. Both were some of the best we ever had. Very helpful staff. Nice wine and beer list. Highly recommended.

I've been to Aceq before and rated it very highly, but this dinner was not of that quality. The service was a bit pushed, but the main problem was the cooking. Pork chops asked for well done were presented "pink" and sent back for some...More
