I am a FOODIE! I love fine dining! Let me start with that ;) Jesus and Richardo were welcoming and knowledgeable of the menu. The views were stunning. We ate at Agua by Larbi the night before ... Cocina Del Mar blows it out of the water!!!! Not even comparable although per reviews I was under the impression we would... More

We came here on a Friday evening on a site inspection for a future business meeting. There are many beautiful locations to dine by the sea but this one surpassed them all! It is cliffside dining at its best jetting out of the boulders in the sea. Making it even more dramatic is that the sea is very rambunctious in... More

Wow! Wow! Definitely the most stunning restaurant ambience I've ever seen. This restaurant is set outside, on different levels, all tables at waters edge high up from the Cape. A truly breathtaking view from everywhere. We sat high up, overlooking a small beach, facing the water. Heaters were used for this windy night - perfect for erasing the chill. Even... More

Jesus and Omar were wonderful, the Lobster is incredible! The one with no claws but big tentacle swords from the Local Mar de Cortez! The Steaks are off the charts, the Oysters were one of a kind each! Truly remarkable.

Terrific location with good quality food and great service. The tables can get a bit dim in the evening so not so easy to see what you are eating. The food is very good although we requested a steak without seasoning and it came with - but have had that problem in a lot of places. The biggest downside for... More

There is a beautiful view - but can you enjoy it in 20 mile an hour winds? They first sat us on the edge of the water! So romantic! Couldn't even hold on to the menu! Next - who wants to pay $16 US dollars for bottled water without a label on the bottle? Who wants to pay $24 for... More

Not only was the location magical and picturesque, or the tuna and halibut ceviche wrapped in jicama "tostadas", or the ginormous porterhouse for two that was cooked to perfection, or the warm hot fudge gooey dark chocolate cake with a fantastic surprise of cinnamon ice cream hidden away in the center of this deliciousness...incredible - we also were lucky enough...

Both bar and restaurant service were a failure. The Chardonnay requested was not available so we chose the only other one available by the glass. Although it was quite more expensive, it was served warm and therefore it took several minutes to be chilled. We were never offered us another glass even tho we had finished well before our reservation... More
