We have eaten here three nights in a row. The frutti de mari pasta is absolutely the best. Consistently delicious and the fillet is cooked to perfection. We adore the atmosphere and our waiter Gregorio is a wonderful person. Attentive but also gives space. I...highly recommend it.More

I ended up at Hilton Los Cabos after a botched start to a vacation at a resort that shall remain nameless. In the last 2 years I have become gluten and egg intolerant which makes eating anywhere a chore! From the moment I arrived at...Vela, everyone greeted me with open arms and didn’t have a single concern in the world about my food intolerances. The chef (Orlando) came out and personally greeted me to give me peace of mind about the food preparation, he also prepared a special batch of gluten and egg free rolls for me to have with their amazing sage olive oil!! The manager (Miguel) was consistently aware of every move occurring at my table and my servers (both named Gregario) were unbelievably hospitable, kind and attentive! My water glass never had an opportunity to know what empty feels like and when I was unsure on what “bubbles” I wanted with dinner, Gregario brought me a small taste of the one he recommends before I was fully committed to a glass. It had been a VERY long time since I have been so at ease eating at a restaurant and believe me if my gluten and egg free dishes tasted as amazing as they did, I can only imagine the decadent flavors Orlando and his team manage to make happen in all of their dishes! You must try Vela when you are in Cabo!!!More

Delicious flavors and farm to table fresh ingredients makes this restaurant a real Italian gem. As the President of the Harvard Wine and Cuisine Society, I have to admit that this a destination restaurant worthwhile the trip to the Hilton at Los Cabos. Their tomatoes...sauce is to die for. Love the Chanterelle pasta. The Totuga fish is blending in your mouth. So fantastic execution with real focus on culinary excellence. The atmosphere is also delightful with a relaxing captive view on the Hilton infinity pool. The service was also attentive and very dedicated. So whether you stay at the Hilton this is absolutely one of the best Los Cabos has to offer!More

While in Los Cabos, we had two meals with Vela. The first night was in the restaurant with an amazing view of the pool and ocean, the food and service were outstanding. One other night, we had dinner on the beach and the food was...prepared by Vela. This was also an amazing experience to have our family dinner on the beach and then wrapped up with a fire pit to have family smores. This was a dinner our family will always remember.More

Gregoria and Gregoria served us. They were both first class and made us feel so special on our anniversary night. The food had amazing flavor and they treated us with a special dessert to end the night. Truly a wonderful experience!

I have just experienced a long awaited perfect dinner, it’s not very often the trifecta of service, ambiance and dining come together perfectly but when they do they evoke a nostalgia that only Frank Sinatra could summon, the warmth of “the Two Gregorios” paired with...a sumptuous octopus brava, classic cocktails and dreamy sunsets embrace me for two lovely hours in the heart of the Hilton Cabo San Lucas, the beautiful Vela restaurant, dress code and reservations are a must for this wonderful experience. Thank you again for spending your time with me and I look forward to seeing you again in the near futureMore
