“Hate to write a good review and risk not getting in next time I go!”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

I have a timeshare in CSL and I can't live without going to Alcaravea at least twice during the week. I have had the timeshare since 2005 and was one of the first non-locals to go there at the suggestion of the concierge at my hotel. It was impossible to find, no signs, on a road somewhere behind El Squid Row. The food is beyond fresh and so lovingly prepared by Chef Enrique - he'll win your heart and your stomach! The restaurant is basically in a parking lot, but they have really worked hard to make the ambiance as special as possible.

“Very, very nice”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

This is a delightful Italian restaurant a bit away from the typical tourist haunt in Cabo San Lucas. We have been coming to Cabo for at least 15 years, and we always look for new places to eat. We were well rewarded for this recommendation from someone at our hotel. The food was very good, the service was first rate, and the ambience was nice given that this is a small place off on a not particualrly attractive side street. I expect we will come back to Alcaravea on our next visit. Given its small size, it is a good idea to make a reservation.

“Recommended . . . and Recommended!”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague of mine who visits Cabo several times a year. The food was the BEST we ate the entire trip! I would HIGHLY recommend a visit to Alcaravea as you will miss out if you don't go!

“The BEST restaurant in Cabo!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Make sure you try the Alcaravea Shrimp dinner if you like olives and pasta.. What a treat and the Chef/Owner will usually thank you when you leave. At this time they do accept the Passport 2 for 1 dining card which makes this very attractive.
