Great Restaurant Located in a beautiful Mall.

The food was great but sparse. I had the Shrimps on Tamarind that were fantastic. Atmosphere was really nice and hip. Service was good and prices were fair.

The food is very mediocre and it's very expensive. The servings are also very small. The service was fine.

I lived in Acapulco for a year and often went to this restaurant which was near my house. View over Acapulco bay is stunning. Food was excellent and cooked to perfection. Relatively inexpensive for European and American pockets. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Come here if you like premium quality food at a premium. Don't expect big servings, but it's a great atmosphere amidst La Isla Mall (a very nice outdoor mall in Acapulco). I had the Robalo filet and it was excellent over white wine sauce with sliced carrots and zucchini and it was very tasty. My wife had the Camarones en... More

Need to update the photo, as it does not matches with current location at La Isla shopping Mall. Never visited past location, seems much better to me. Good food, good service, waiters defenetely know what they are offering. Do not offer only the most expensive dish in the menu, as many other restaurants, Good for you!. My wife, teen girl... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Acapulco and I have dinned in it a few times. The place is built on top of a cliff and has a breathtaking view. It is a terrace with no glasses on the windows; this allows the sea breeze to flow through and gives you an undistorted view of the bay. You... More

This place has it all!! Amazing bay view, even better than Su Casa, with a semi outdoor dining experience that was exquisite! The waiters were not fluent in English, but the service was excellent and the menu was thorough. Even the pasta dishes were incredible! Great place for pictures and a more elegant night out!

We booked a table for 5 at Kookaburra on Saturday night. We had very good reviews about this restaurant some years ago. Unfortunately it has changed. For worst! Nothing to say about the view wich is fantastic. The service is just ok and they charge $3 ea. The menu is quite limited and it seems it hasn't changed in years.... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and always enjoyed the view and friendly staff. However on the last occasion in 2011 the night before we left for home after six weeks in Porta Marquis we enjoyed a lovely seafood dinner with friends and by two a.m. I had food poisoning so badly that our friends had to pack...
