“Great place for special moments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Very intimate restaurant in Acapulco. Few tables, and a lot of servers, so you get pampered at all times.

The food was excellent. Well presented, excellent tasting. The drinks were good as well. The view of the bay is good as well.

The only reason I didn't give them the fifth star is because there was a dog in the yard of a nearby house that kept barking. But after a while I didnt even notice it anymore.

This is an expensive place, I think we were circa $300 for two people and a child, granted that included a bottle of champagne, but not the tip.

Recommended for a high end dining experience in Acapulco.

“Best restaurant in Acapulco - bar none”

Decor and view are outstanding - like a movie set!

On the expensive side but quality and value are worth it. Treat yourself!

“Great night at a lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Zibu's view is spectacular. Get there early for the sunset and you will also be one of the few diners there. As Americans, we ate much earlier than the locals and enjoyed great service.

Try the Cucumber Margarita with the cayenne salt, it was unique and delicious. The presentation of the food was creative and utilized coconut shells and the emptied orange rinds.

One small quibble, the bathrooms are such that used toilet paper is disposed of in the waste baskets rather than flushed. This can be gross!

“Magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We have been eating at this restaurant since its beginning and it still ranks at the top. The food is delicious, the setting is spectacular and there is a dessert on the menu that is one of the best ever. When we take friends there we always order one for the table and have them guess what is covering the ice cream. The cucumber martinis are just the best and the goat cheese salad still is my favorite.

“Outstanding sercice, fantastic view and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

A well deserved #1 on the TA ranking for Acapulco. The location and the setting are fantastic, the service is outstandig, a truly first class experience. The food is good but it probably needs some work on the presentation, the kitchen should do better in order to make Zibu a one of a kind experience. The wine list is a bit overpriced. Overall, if you are in Acapulco, you should not miss a visit.
