The restaurant is quaint. We loved it. There's a great view from the observatory deck as you arrive that is just above the restaurant. Every view and the ambiance within the restaurant is spectacular as well. We had the goat cheese salad, chilled cucumber soup, fish in a banana leaf and the Kari Gai. All of it, fantastic!!!! Would couldn't stop saying yum as we ate. In fact we wanted to eat the jimcama bowl that the soup came, so our server obliged and cut it up for us with lime and a chili power on the side. The service was excellent and by far the best dining experience we've had. Can't want to go back and bring family and friends!

We had a wonderful dinner last night at Zibu to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday! We arrived at Zibu and walked down the stairs under the palapa to the most beautiful view. We sat at a table along the edge and soaked in the lovely as we enjoyed our cocktails - my tamarind margarita was especially good!! We had the Thai Surf and Turf skewers appetizer which was very good. I had the snapper cooked in banana leaves - which I loved - and my husband had the seared ahi which was also perfectly prepared. As it was his birthday, they even brought out a piece of delicious coconut pineapple cake with a candle.
The wait staff are very attentive and friendly - and very helpful dealing with our very limited Spanish. They had a menu in English for us which was helpful. Everyone was so nice there - especially our waiter Roderigo. We had an amazing night!!!

The central bamboo pavilion is stunning. The owner is a beloved caterer from Acapulco who has created a wonderful menu. This is by far the best restaurant in Acapulco. The Jicama soup served in a carved jicama bowl, which you can eat also is unusual and divine. Attentive wait staff and perfect martinis.

We found this restaurant while reviewing and looking for great places to eat in Acapulco. So we got our cab to drive us there for supper one night. Its located on a very busy road between the new resort area and the main part of the city. However, once you get inside this absolutely beautiful restaurant, you forget where you are.

The views of the bay are incredible and you can't hear or see the busy road. I don't know how they were able to do that but they did.

The Service here is top notch, second to none. Very attentive and always smiling.
The menu is a blend of mexican and Thai/Indian.
The Food is amazing. We spoke with other patrons who said that they make this a regular stop on their vacations.

This was really the best food deal we had all trip. $100 US for the amount and quality is truly unbelievable.

I would go back to this place in a heartbeat. You must try it if ever in Acapulco.
