Delicious!!!

I went there today with my wife for dinner and the full experience was amazing. It may be an expensive place, but service is beyond excellent and food is simply delicious, justifying the expense.

Been to Zibu several times for the last couple of years. I remember it as one of my favorites when I went for the first time 6 years ago. However, this time it wasn't that pleasant. Out of the 5 dishes we ordered, there was only one I would consider "ok" and the rest was under average. Some of the... More

Zibu is a really interesting restaurant, located outside Acapulco in a secluded bay it has a great view and is nestled between the trees for a really exotic feeling. The starters were great nice satay with an interesting burning bamboo as a garnish a very nice Phad Thai and a simple but tasty chicken curry for a main. However there... More

The food is great you must definetly try the fish rolls and the pad thai. Also the view is totally worth it, just make sure that when you call to make a reservación, ask for a fron table, cause otherwise they'll put you in the back or near the kitchen.

Zibú is located on the scenic road between Acapulco and Diamante zone, it overlooks Puerto Marques bay and only opens for diner. A reservation is highly recommended. Fusion Asian menu, must order cucumber jicama soup and Pad Thai. As always the service is impeccable and professional, I ordered Pescado Thai, simply put, out of this world. Any meal here needs...

A must in Acapulco. Actually my favorite restaurant in the area. For appetizers try the "rollitos de pescado" , "roll is de verano" "carpaccio de pulpo. Today I tried the "sopa fria de pepino y jicama" and it was delicious. The Pad Thai is a must. Extraordinary service and superb view.

Convenient location with romantic setting on the bay; nice music; terrific food. Go at sunset for an extra-special experience. I don't leave the resort much when I'm here, but this is one spot that's worth it.
