Zibu Allende emerges from a fascinating past, from the encounter between Asia and Mexico through the Galleon of Manila, a ship loaded with great treasures such as silks, porcelains, jewels and the precious spices that have enhanced the cuisine of Mexico and the world . Zibu Allende rescues this story and takes it one step further by creating a new gastronomic concept: the Mex-Tai cuisine, which fuses Thai cuisine with Mexican haute cuisine to produce a unique menu and this remember and pay tribute to those who contributed to this exchange of flavors. Today you can delight yourself with irresistible delicacies that mix the spicy, the acid, the sweet and the salty, gastronomic sensations that you will love to feel and taste.

I understand we are living in a pandemic and there were only 5 meal options, however the choice of the 5 meals covered such a small culinary spectrum that the only real options for a main meal were Pad Thai and Seabass. We ordered the Pad Thai which was around $350 pesos and another $250 pesos if you would like to add any meat or fish to the dish. The food did not seem fresh and felt like it had been cooking in a pan for quite some time, which is odd as we waited around 30 mins for it to arrive. If I’m going to pay $600 pesos for Pad Thai I would at least like it to be fresh. The pricing was definitely inconsistent with the quality of the meal.

The service was actually very good and the staff were very tentative to all our requests. The restaurant was also beautiful with incredible sculptures in the grounds.

Live Aqua, I understand you are a fancy restaurant and you charge fancy restaurant prices, but please, sort your menu. The food should reflect the price.

P.s no physical menus available, which is understandable due to covid, however, what happened to the bar codes to download the electronic version of the menu? This is basic stuff.

Muy bonito el lugar, muy amplio e iluminado, me gustó mucho la decoración. Me parece que por el nivel de la carta podría haber un par de opciones mas de carne, pero eso es solo por mis preferencias personales. Comí el atún sellado, y tiene ya tiempo que no comía uno tan bueno!! estuve a nada de lamer el plato de lo bueno!! las entradas mo me parecieron nada extraordinario, pero puedo haber elegido mal. Vale la pena el lugar, y los precios me parecieron acordes con la calidad de la comida.

Beautiful setting, good music, tables spaced well apart, lighting a little too bright, but overall ambiance was excellent. Food was good but I have to say that my seafood rice was very short on seafood. 95% rice with a small lump of soft shell crab and a few small pieces of cut up shrimp. Not even whole shrimp! This was something I could have had for about a quarter of the price at an average Chinese restaurant. Service was very good. The main issue is that all the prices were higher than any of the other first class restaurants in SMA. This was the most expensive meal we had in SMA and we went to 8 of the top restaurants. Casa Nostra was much better all around with more reasonable prices.

Great place, so elegant and fancy.

It is not so close to the main plaza, but the town is safe and nice for walking.

Era la cena del 31 de diciembre y no tenían un solo adorno de Año Nuevo. No había ambiente festivo.
No tenían suficientes menús (éramos cinco personas y nos dieron dos).
Se tardaron mucho en traer las bebidas.
La calidad de la comida fue muy mediocre.
Les pedimos que cerraran las puertas de la terraza porque entraba mucho frío y solo cerraron una.
En general se veían improvisados y desorganizados.

We booked for Christmas eve with my family, although food was delicious our table was outside in the terrace with out enough heaters and/or blankets; not only the food got cold in seconds but all of us ended up with a bad cold.
That terrace is not suitable for a dinner during this time of the year and they should not offer it.

This is a very nice restaurant. Great food. Exceptional service. We ate a dinner and Christmas brunch at Zibu. The dinner was shrimp tacos - wonderful - and the brunch spread of Mexican specialties was very large and delicious. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly. We will definitely visit again.

Pésimo servicio. Te atienden de muy mala gana, tenemos que estar constantemente llamando al mesero porque no se acercaban a tomar la orden o a checar que todo estuviera bien. Horrible experiencia. Cero recomendado. Fuimos a festejar mi cumpleaños y preguntaron más de 3 veces si estábamos celebrando algo a lo cual dijimos que si siempre y ni un felicidades recibí.
La relación costó-servició-experiencia no es redituable, no vale la pena el costo del platillo por lo que te dan de comida y servicio.
