The evening starts the minute you enter the restaurant and the view engulfs you. It immediately calms you and the atmosphere of the restaurant is very zen. The food was unique and exceptional. The octopus ceviche and sea bass were great. The whole evening with the location, professional staff and great food made our holiday.

The restaurant is open air above the water, south of the bay. The setting is very beautiful and the service is good. The food is good as well, but not memorable. It is a fusion restaurant, combining Thai and Mex. I love both separately, but they don't work very well together for my tastes.

This was our third visit to Zibu and it just gets better each time. The menu was excellent as always, the atmosphere with Christmas lights everywhere was great, the live singer/guitarist walked amongst the tables with a repertoire of American and Mexican classics; the sky was crystal clear and you could stargaze from the table. Just an amazing location.

Zibu is without doubt one of the top "to go to" restaurants in Acapulco. The setting, whether the formal restaurant terrace with it's extraordinary architecture and lovely view over Puerto Marques and Revolcadero, or the lovely wooden deck (not always open) with huge trees, vines and waterfall, is probably the most spectacular in town. The service is impeccable and friendly... More

Everything was exceptional: meal, service and breathtaking view. All that for quite reasonable price!

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
