Ribs were rather dry and lacked flavour. I went here after spotting it when leaving Applebee's but the ribs I had there were much better.Thanks very much for your visit and your comments. I am very disappointed we were not able to do our best job with your meal. I have spoken to our manager to make sure he and his team always follow our strict standards.

Zibu

Reviewed By Asman69 - Ontario

First visited January 2007 shortly after Zibu opened and felt it was one of the best restaurants anywhere. Great food, superlative views and excellent service. All still apply. Loved the octopus carpaccio, pad Thai and sea bass special which was special. Service was excellent from the greeter through the maitre'd to the waiter. Nice wine list just to top it all off.

Su Casa

Su Casa was built in 1971 as a private residence. Through the years and after many nights of glamorous entertaining with friends from all over the world it was suggested that Su Casa would be the perfect setting for a romantic restaurant. Su Casa sits on a mountain-top with a panoramic view of Acapulco Bay. The dining terraces are surrounded by beautiful palm trees and tropical Gardens. Its a dining experience not soon to be forgotten. HOLA AMIGOS.Su Casa Restaurant will be open 5 days a week starting Tuesday, November 10, 2015 from 5:00pm until 12:00. Closed on Sunday and Monday until further notice. We are looking forward to our 33rd year in business doing what we love the most. So hurry and make plans to visit our Beautiful Port of Acapulco and Su Casa Restaurant.

Esmirna del Mar

Reviewed By Cessna172Pilot - Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Being from South Louisiana, we know seafood and love it just as much. My wife and I are also foodies, and we were quite impressed. We were supposed to have sunset dinner on the beach, but the Pacific Ocean had other plans, and flooded the big pavilion and beach dining areas; so we had to sit under the first pavilion instead. Still had a good view of the waves from there, and the floor is sand, so close enough...
When you first arrive, they come out and prep the table with large conch shells and decorations, as well as bring out the raw seafood (it's delivered fresh every day). A large platter containing a large Red Snapper, 3 Lobster's, and a large shrimp (to show size/quality of shrimp) was brought to the table. We opted to go with a smaller snapper (which was also brought out for us to see) and try it all. You also get to choose between a red salsa sauce and a garlic based sauce for seasoning the fish. We opted to try both of those too. We were not disappointed! My wife loved the garlic snapper and I found the lobster to be the best I've ever had. They also bring out fresh lettuce, tomato, and onion as well as incredible fresh handmade corn tortillas.
We only speak a little Spanish, but most of the staff knows enough english that you can communicate if you aren't familiar with Espanol. The owner speaks great english and we had a wonderful chat with him before leaving. It's a family run business and he's very friendly and appreciative. I can't say enough about how welcome he / they make you feel.

- On a side note: The only con was a group of 3 women showed up selling various homemade foods and one of them was extremely persistent. They were in no way related to the restaurant; and I cannot blame the restaurant as it is an open air atmosphere and street vendors are common practice in Mexico.

Carmenere is a very nice restaurant. Has no view but the atmosphere and the music are outstanding. The cuisine is international and has a wide wine list accesible for everybody. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. You won't regret coming to carmenere

We went there since TA graded this place as a top 5, well.. it lacks many things to become one of Acapulco’s top 5... but.. it was really good. The place is cozy, nothing fancy, but food was great and less expensive than other touristic...MoreWe really appreciate your comment, we will work to be on your Top 3, we hope will get the task. Thanks for the comment. What’s your top 5 ? We are interested.

Day after day working to seduce your taste with our dishes. Give us the chance to serve you.

We thought that having a vegan in the family would make it hard to find a place to eat. We were wrong. We called in advance, but from the moment we walked into the restaurant, the waiters were already giving our vegan suggestions on what meals they could prepare for her. Rather than giving her only one choice, they gave her so many delicious options that she had a hard time deciding which one to eat. She settled on a vegan pizza, which had enough veggies to satisfy her particular taste. As for the rest of the party, who was non-vegan, we indulged in a delightfully fresh salad that included several seasonal fruits, as well as a pasta that included truffle oil, the aroma of which filled our nostrils and our tastebuds, overwhelming us with deliciousness. There is no better place to eat in in Acapulco. Eat here, and you will never be disappointed.

Tonys Asian Bistro

Tony's Asian Bistro, is a small and romantic Restaurant with a spectacular view of Acapulco Bay. Chef Erik Nguyen, is a graduate from Scoffier Institute in France, he has worked with former French President Francois Miterrand, Harrison Ford and Catherine Deneuve and worked with Paul Bocusse and Trois Gros, to name a few. We have French Specialties and Asian French Fusion plates. Our wine list includes wine for all budgets and the top labels that any 3 star Restaurant will boast at fair prices. A restaurant of this level has been overdue in Acapulco. The place is open you dine under the star with probably the best view of Acapulco Bay. Service is impecable. The food is freshly prepared everyday. All this plus reasonable prices make Tony's Asian Bistro a must during your stay at this famed resort.

A romantic rooftop view of Acapulco Bay is a perfect setting for a memorable meal at Tony’s. Impeccable personal service in addition to delectable offerings keep this Bistro among our favorites. An expanded menu included a variety of dishes-my husband appreciates the duck entrees while I keep returning to the marinated beef with asparagus. The spring rolls, the Linda salad, and the steak Bernaise were wonderful as well, and the apple tart with vanilla ice cream was unparalleled! The traffic noise is unfortunate but a minor trade off for the exceptional cuisine.
