Nice View . A hassle to get to and to leave. It used to be worth it for the food and service. We made reservations several days in advance. When we arrived they found our reservation but although the restaurant was almost empty our table wasn’t ready . They set up for a table of 8 and a long table for 12 and us on the front row. Service was ok and food just ok until the tables next to us were filled . Then they just abandoned us but really turned on the charm next to us Even asking several times they wouldn’t even bring me a spoon to stir my cold coffee.Paid the bill . Not cheap here .... and left unnoticed ... Stand outside to wait for their called taxi to arrive . You figure they could spring for a bench .....

This place is a must stop! Sitting on top of the cliffs about a 15 minute drive from the airport, the view is incredible. Set up like an outdoor beach hut, this place is very unique and beautiful. A large group of us sat on the terrace and everyone enjoyed the food and drink. Lamb chops were outstanding and we tried one of every appetizer offered. We quickly had to order another round as they were devoured instantly. Highly recommended.

Ambiance was great with the amazing view. Service was excellent. The view was amazing. Food was good. A little on the spendy side for Mexico, but when you add it all up it was worth it.

My husband and I dined at Zibu based on reviews from Trip Advisor. We took at cab from our hotel. It was not clear where the reception desk was located. We made reservations but we were not greeted to see where we would be seated and felt ignored upon entering. The atmosphere is very tropical and peaceful. u husband ordered the young coconut broth which mentioned chicken and coconut broth. He did not note any mushrooms listed but that seemed to be a main ingredient. He is not a mushroom fan so he was disappointed. the broth had a good flavor . I ordered the goat cheese salad which was okay except it was wet. I had a lot of water on my plate as I was finishing the salad. There was only a small amount of goat cheese noted. We both ordered the lobster tail which was grilled and overcooked. It had soy sauce on it and tasted more like marinated steak than lobster. We each ordered two margaritas which were small and poured to about about 2/3 of the glass. The waiter removed my husband's glass before he was finished. The total bill was 152.00 dollars so for the price and quality not impressed. We usually at least tip 15 % and most of the time 20%. We tipped 10 % due to the food and wait staff and the waiter sure let us know he was not happy. The brought the bill and asked for the tip ahead of time which is not typical. I would not recommend this restaurant due to the cost and quality.

We were recommended to come here for a romantic dinner. The view over looking the ocean was beautiful & watching the sunset with my husband was priceless. The food was gourmet with perfect portion. Everything we had was delicious.
We ordered the tuna app & the fish roll app which were so so good!!
For main course we had Seabass with truffle & red snapper with curry
Both were so so yummy. For dessert we had coconut ice cream with surprise crispy chip which were carrots!!! This was so so yummy we couldn’t believe it. We both had wine & only came to $110 Canadian!! I would recommend this restaurant.
