One of the most exclusive and best situated restaurants in Acapulco. The restaurant sits on a scenic mountain, in the Las Brisas residential complex. The decor is made up of a beautiful covered terrace, with the traditional and cool thatched roof. Adding a touch of romance, the restaurant is lit entirely by candlelight and without other sources of light. It goes without saying that the food, international flavour, and service are also of excellent quality.
First of all the waiter was waiting next to the table looking for us to finish the dish, then when we asked for the check he repeated several times 'dont forget my tip' so we gave him his tip and he didnt agree with the quantity. The food and the place was nice but it was expensive, you expect a better service for the price you are paying for. I felt uncomfortable and disgusted. You shouldn't go! Not recommended!
The view is without question unparalleled in Acapulco - and because it is located in the Las Brisas area and not in the very noisy central Bay area - a much more pleasant outdoor dining experience. Parking was disappointing - we were not offered valet services either on arrival nor departure, even though there were several elegantly dressed women in our party. Taxi service, however, was readily available.
The ambiance was very pleasant - nicely decorated, appropriate lighting and backround music at a level where conversation was easy.
The food was nice but not fabulous; the service was attentive but not overbearing. One of our party received a wrong order but it was corrected promptly.
The bread basket was paltry and over-microwaved. Starters are on the expensive side and not especially exciting. Our entire party ordered fish entrees; the two-chile sea bass was by far the best. None of our entrees were accompanied by sides such as rice, vegetables or potatoes. From the dessert menu, all our choices except the mango sorbet were disappointing, although all had lovely presentations.
Apres dinner we opted for "regular" coffee vs very expensive "show" coffee; it was adequate; refills were not offered.
In sum there are many other restaurants in Acapulco to go to for better food; however for setting and ambiance this is a nice option.
food- forget about it..!!!!
don't forget to order the quail..!!! simply the best..! view of the city is awesome...!
located on top of a hill. across from you you can see the glittery city, almost like looking at the beautiful sky on a clear night...! well i don't want to spoil it for you..see it for yourself..!
good food but way too expensive for what it was. you can find better in acapulco. it is best for wealthy people looking for a nice dinner and an amazing view of the acapulco bay. best for small parties of people, n more than 5.
Kookaburra would definetly be reccomended to anyone. However, do not bring your small children: they will be hard pressed to find something of their taste on the menu. Older children should be fine, my thirteen year old was delighted with the grilled Cornish Rock Hen.
Overall, our experience was excellent. I did find the fish was not quite as fresh as one would hope, but at the beginning of the meal we were informed that the fish was imported. I have no idea why.
Most of the meals were not too painfully priced, with entrees averaging around twenty dollars. After dirnks, dessert, and cofee, our bill came to one hundred and sixty two american dollars. (Three people; two adults and one teenager)However if we'd been budget wise we could have pulled about 100 dollars. Do try the strawberry margaritas, they are superb.
If you are a picky meat eater, ask for the beef to be well done, or it will be undercooked. Do bring your cameras, there is a splendid view of Acapulco Bay. An ocean breeze keeps things airy and not so hot and humid. If you can, come for the sunset, we sipped matrgaritas while watching a bright red sun fall behind the cliffs.
For dessert, try their sorbet, especially the watermelon slice. It even has chocolate seeds. We chose a simple american coffee for after meal refereshment, and shared a Black Forest Cake slice... rather small for two people but delcious. My daughter thuroughly enjoyed the watermelon sorbet as mentioned above, and I certainly was not above sampling it.
We had reservations, but the restaurant was not so crowded as it was April, their "off" season. We were seated directly on the ocean view terrace area.I would aks your hotel or timeshare's front desk if they believe a reservation necassary.
Do check it out if you are willing to spend a bit! Happy dining.
One of the best restaurants in the world for a romantic dinner!

The Kookaboora looks uninspiring as you pull in from the winding road overlooking the bay, but as you are taken to your seat you suudenly appreciate what you are about to experience - the full vista of Acapulco Bay opens up before you, a cooling breeze rising from the sea washes away the oppressive humidity, and the subdued elegance of the suuroundings create an immediate relaxing effect.
A wide-ranging menu of mouth-watering dishes and a list of fine wines are courtiously presented by gracious staff after you are seated at your candelit table, and the service continues to be excellent throughout the meal - suble, timely and efficient.
The food is excellent - some of the best experienced in the world, and I have travelled the five continents extensively. When next in Acapulco, the Kookaboora is guaranteed a return visit. A word of caution to those wishing to visit - book ahead - the restaurant's quality is no secret!
