Excellent spot...

Absolutely delicious….If you go there you should order the curry. Best curry in town. Try to make a reservation for sunset, is the best scenario for a romantic dinner. Service and food is just perfect. Even if it is a little bit expensive, it's worth the price without a doubt.

This place is one of the best in Acapulco. I wasn't blow away but it was good food and it had a decent ambiance and a really good view of pichilingue bay. Wear something really light it can get really hot and no AC .

Zibu was one of the best highlights of our trip. We love great food, great people and spectacular views... and that is exactly what we received. It's pretty easy to miss as its embedded in the cliffs so definitely ask for directions or get a cab (Carlos Alegria Corona is the best!!) The food is a Tai Mexican cuisine and... More

Excellent service and bilingual waiters. The food is very nicely presented. The food selection ample. Very creative dishes. A bit overpriced and I felt one of the dishes too sweet.

Great service and view. Our most expensive meal. Food good but not great. Restaurant out of the Pelau Pelau huge shrimp I wanted. Had to ask for cushion as chairs rather hard and uncomfortable. However, everybody in Acapulco go out of their way A they certainly aim to please.

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

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.

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
