“Loved the setting, very good food, fair prices too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We really enjoyed our meal at the Hacienda. From the moment we walked into the resort, we were in awe, such a beautiful place. The decor, the views, and the surroundings truly are spectacular. We were not disappointed when we got our meals either. We got the Sea Bass and Mole Chicken and both were excellent. The prices are very reasonable, especially for such nice surroundings.

We will definitely go back to the Hacienda, a very enjoyable place to dine.

“Excellent Food, Atmosphere and Personable and Professional Staff-DON'T MISS THIS PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

My girlfriend and i spent a week in Cabo and ended up visiting the restaurant twice during our stay. Cocina has spared no details on ensuring an incredible dining experience. Starting with decor, the unassuming and welcoming staff, and the beautiful vistas of the ocean with both indoor and outdoor seating. They prepare incredible margaritas (try the Hacienda margarita), and have created a diverse and innovative menu You seriously cannot go wrong with anything you order. You get a five star experience without a five star price tag. We had the PULPO CANTINA (octopus) as a starter both nights and couldn't get enough. It is a very unique dish, unlike i have had before. Both the General Manager, Joe, and Manager, Carlos made sure we were comfortable and had an incredible experience.

Dont miss this place on your stay in Cabo!!!

“Lovely restaurant by the beach. Fab food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

From the moment I entered this gorgeous resort leading up to the restaurant I knew it would be one of my favorite spots in Cabo. The restaurant is gorgeous, elegant, warm and cosy. The food was amazing. The calamari was out of this world! Great place for foodies and for a romantic dinner out. Loved it!

“The Churros...oh the Churros!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We just returned from our annual Cabo trip and we can unequivocally say the Hacienda Cocina and Cantina will now be a permanent member of our annual restaurant tour of Cabo.

We went for Valentine's dinner and were just overwhelmed by the beauty of the place. The location is spectacular - you literally feel like you could reach out and touch the rocks and the Arch. And the decor is breathtaking. It is a truly magical place.

The service was very attentive. One thing I REALLY liked is that they automatically bring you a glass carafe of filtered water rather than making you pay for bottled water. What a novel idea! I had a guava mojito that was delicious.

For dinner, we shared their appetizer of shredded beef tostadas. These were served cold and they were incredible. A great combination of taste and texture and everything tasted so fresh! For our main course, we did the family style molacajete with chorizo, steak fajita, chicken and panella with vegetables. It was very good, but we wished there had been a little more of the steak and chicken included in the dish.

Then came time for dessert. We ordered churros and a chocolate cake. We didn't need the cake. The churros are incredible and definitely enough to share. There are 6 or 7 of them served in a little brown paper bag with two little dishes of dipping sauces in chocolate and caramel on the side. These churros are amazing little pillows of dough that are crunchy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside and then dusted with cinnamon sugar. We loved these so much, that we came back two more nights during our trip JUST for dessert. JUST for those churros. Well, the churros AND the amazing atmosphere.

Also, be sure to say "hello" to the restaurant manager Joe. He is a great guy who really seems to "get it" and he has created something very special there in Cabo.

Oh - one more amazing thing. Each night we were there, around 9:00 or so, fireworks were shot off somewhere off the coastline. Just one more special thing happening at this very special place.
