It is definitely not worth the price. The restaurant is very nice and service is good but the food is nowhere close to what you end up paying.... Don't dare choose the suggestions of the waiter or you'll end up with a hole in your pocket and an empty stomach. Taste wasn't so great either.

One couple in our party had a rental car so we ended up at Zibu for dinner ThaiMex menu. Another OMG moment for all of us. Starting with the stairs, bathroom, bar, everything was spectacular and enchanting. The restaurant is in the hillside and the architecture made full impact of that. Although it is considered high end dinning my dish which was an oriental seafood delight with coriander and herbs and rice for which I would love a repeat experience, was very affordable.
Everyone was thrilled with their choice. The fresh chocolate mousse dessert is wort the wait!

Zibu overlooks Marquez Bay beside Acapulco. The restaurant is multi-tiered, strapped to the hill side. If you drive, you'll need the valet parking, the entrance is right on the main road and there's no where to park. If you take a taxi or car service, they won't be able to wait around - just no room.

The restaurant itself is all open air, with water features and a lovely tropical style, but the view steals the show every time - Marquez Bay is a jewel.

The food is a thai/mexican fusion, the chilled cucumber soup was amazing! If you're a Pad Thai purist, Zibu's version isn't going to change your life - it's tasty, but hybrid. But everything was fresh and well prepared.

Ate here in Feb 2013 and came back this year and was very happy we did. All 12 enjoyed their meal. We didn't think it was too pricey. Must visit place for sure.
