Saffron at the Banyan Tree in Cabo Marques is an excellent Thai restaurant, that serves fairly authentic Thai food that is kicked up a notch. It is the signature restaurant at all of the Banyan Tree resorts. The service is impeccable and the ambiance is sleek and upscale.Many of the restaurants in Acapulco boast of their views of the city, Saffron has the most incredible sunsets.
Don't be surprised when you see the price tag. But you get what you pay for.

I'm a regular in Acapulco, visiting at least once a month, and I truly believe that at this moment this is the best restaurant Acapulco has to offer.
Many new good restaurants have recently opened their doors at La Isla Shopping Centre, however Saffron is one of the very few, yet contemporary and all-around well taken care restaurants left, with an astonishing view of the ocean.
The view by itself along with the "wild" setting is worth the visit, however the food and especially the service are also truly remarkable.
I will be there again this weekend and I am very looking forward to it.

Edgy eclectic and beautiful cuisine. We have been staying in Acapulco for almost 3 weeks and have tried almost every high end restaraunt and Saffrons stands very close to Zibu as a favorite. The atmosphere, the presentation and service are the best we have had in Acapulco. The cuisine is extremely pleasing.

Amazing Thai food. Very authentic. Better than anything else of its kind in Mexico. Great wines. Spectacular sunset views over the open ocean (windy/rainy in bad weather, so beware). VERY EXPENSIVE. The hotel is also fantastic (by far the best in Acapulco, ideal for couples and honeymooners).
