Nice restaurant

We went on business dinner (twice). The service is good - average, but we had very nice first course and the shrimps with mole de tamarindo were very good.The ambiance is very nice and the restaurant is well located.

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

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
