We loved it. Beautiful setting, great service, and super food. The menu choices were plentiful and everything was delicious. A great experience. The valet can take a while so don't be in a hurry.

My family and I took a trip to Acapulco for the holidays, and discovered Zibu, a lovely Thai inspired restaurant built like a multi-layered treehouse on the cliff overlooking the Acapulco bay. The service was excellent and their nightly specials were creative and since we were a big group we were able to try many. The dishes had a Thai... More

We have been in this restaurant several times , and always the food is very good it's a fusion of Thai Méx with very good local flavors , maybe because the high season the service was a little bit slow, but we had no rush

What a delight to discover this incredible restaurant. The space is absolutely beautiful- dining under the stars, cliff side, in a what feels like a treehouse. The service was superb and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the fish baked in a banana leaf and it was one of the best preparations I have ever had. Highly recommended!

I admit that I went to the restaurant without a reservation, which is the lesson I learned. However, the hostess said I could wait - so no problem I thought. I went to the bar, waited 10 minutes before asking for a menu. The waiter bought a food menu not a cocktail menu- then the manager came over and asked... More

The setting is breathtaking and probably the most beautiful restaurant in Acapulco. The service is very good, the waiters were taking care of all details to make us have a good time. The food was very good, especially the meat which was excellent. The prices are relatively high for Acapulco but I would definitely recommend and come back to this... More

This was like dining on the terrace of a large, fancy treehouse. The menu was unusual and the food was tasty. The bread basket was probably the best bread I've had since France! The Jungle dessert was very interesting, as was the pineapple/coconut dessert. The waiters were very attentive, filling your water glass after every few sips. Mixed drinks were... More

Great atmosphere, good service, but I would rate the food as just okay. I got the tenderloin appetizer, a salad and the coconut ice cream dessert with fried carrots.

The location is beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. The menu was more Thai than Mexican though. It was quite expensive for Acapulco, but we expected this and the environment alone was worth the money! A little bit more light at the tables would have been good so I could see what I was eating.... More
