Zibu is under a giant palapa that is awesome to look at. The outside view is to Puerto Marquez, not Acapulco Bay. Therefore, it is not as beautiful as other places on the hill. The food and service are just okay, as with other places on the hill, the prices are too high.

Its a great place to have dinner and drinks with your friends or partner. Romantic place with a very nice view of the bay. Its a little dark in a nice way with candles in every table which add to the nice environment. I always have at least one dirty martini, they usually prepare them perfectly. Food is also very...

We visited Zibu in October of this year based on a recommendation from someone we met at our resort. The recommendation was definitely on the mark. The wait staff was absolutely outstanding, the food was incredible and the vistas from the outdoor dining area were breath taking. The prices are a bit high, but between the service, the excellence of... More

Went with my parents for their anniversary celebration, food & drinks were great. It's a little pricey but overall worth it. Just a piece of advice in be sure to use some mosquito repellent

Went to Zibu the other day for a business meeting. What a great place. The design is wonderful, open and inviting with a spectacular view. The food did not disappoint either. Nicely done seafood dishes primarily, the seasoning absolutely fantastic. Try the lobster tails, strong on the garlic but really as good as it gets. Overall a very enjoyable evening... More

Best experience in Acapulco for us. Love the decor and setup. Nice view as described in other reviews since the tables are set up to overlook the bay from hundreds of feet above sea level. I know quite a number of restaurants are like this but this one, combined with the awesome decor, is just perfect. Service was A+. Food... More

This restaurant is expensive but very romantic! The whole atmosphere was very nice. The food was good Thai and Mexican not the best but certainly not the worst. I love to go there for special occasions and we did make reservations but really did not need them. The view is beatiful looking down over Acapulco bay with all the lights... More

They call their cuisine Mextai, a balanced mix between Mexican and Thai food. The restaurant is located in the hillside, with a beautiful view of the ocean, well decorated, very nice. Had the best octopus carpaccio ever, followed by a surf and turf with morita chili sauce that was delicious. Also ordered a Pad Thai, with a sweet tamarind and... More
