My partner and I went to Acre to get out of the tourist-y Cabo scene and it did not disappoint. Rather than order off the menu, we opted for the prixe fixe tasting menu. If you do this, there is no actual menu of items for you to choose from, it's chef's choose and the ask you your food allergies and away we went! The food was absolutely divine with unexpected flavors. Service was phenomenal -- one of the best I've ever had -- and the scene was unlike anything I've ever experience. It was like we were eating in a tree house! I highly recommend Acre for dining while you are in Cabo San Lucas or San Jose. If you rent a car and drive yourself, opt for a larger size SUV - we were in a Chevy Beat and the back roads were tough to drive with our tiny little car. GO TODAY!

It was recommended to us by friends. We went for a lunch. Food was delicious, service was excellent. After our lunch we had a tour of the grounds by a lovely young lady, Brittany. She was very knowledgeable and explained the whole sustainable concept that Acre is working towards. Definitely a must visit on any trip to the south Baja.
Check out their website.

The restaurant building is nice but the surroundings are totally out of place. The owners probably tried to recreate a kind of jungle when all the area in Los Cabos is semi desert so al the plantain trees and other non native trees and flora are totally tasteless and out of place. Going to the dining experience we were a party of 9 from which 6 arrived earlier and opted for the menu tasting 1 of us was vegetarian and also ordered the vegetarian tasting menu. Our initial cocktails were also bland and not very savory. The dinner experience began very badly first because the price paid for the tasting menu was the same for everybody but the portion served for the vegetarian party was far larger than the portion served for the 5 of us that ordered the normal tasting menu in one case the portion for the 5 was exactly the same than the one served for the vegetarian client. The quality of all the tasting menu dishes were bland and tasteless. Later the other friends arrived and joined us and since we were already dining we offered them to share some of our bland dishes and thy were planning to order from the menu. Suddenly the waiter told us that we can’t share our meals or he will be charging additionally, so this was ridiculous because we already were paying for our food and the friends that were joining us were also ordering from the menu. So a discussion began with the waiter and later the manager came to apologize and at the end send us the desserts for everybody for free (by the way the desserts were the best dishes of the night), at the end we paid near $1,000.00 UScy. For an overal poor dining experience. We thank the manager for trying to fix things but they have to work hard to improve things because Cabo is exploding with new places and they can’t oversee this and counting to have a full restaurant with all those flaws.

A friend suggested the trek out there from Cabo San Lucas and while we were driving there I really thought it seemed a long way out to go but upon arriving we u deratood why the schlep!! It's a gorgeous piece of property very close to renowned Flora Farms - which we have also been told is a must - but anyway we sat in the bar and enjoyed a spectacular menu of cocktails all handmade and very creatively presented ! Then we went in a tour of the dozen or so treetop accomodations - a night or two getaway- in small but amazing little cabin style accommodations which were simply but beautifully appointed !! After the tour we we escorted to dinner in the stunning restaurant that boasts a varied and very appetizing menu ! Staff were well informed and excited to share their choices ! Food was excellent and. Itching was left on Any plate ! As they say - the proof was in the pudding !!
A must visit if going to Cabo , San Jose or anywhere close by !!

That is a well deserved endorsement for an extraordinary place. I'm not a real "earthy" kinda gal but there is something about this place that brings about a connection with nature.
Rodrique happened to catch us in the parking lot and took the time to give us the tour. The treehouses are so cute and what a special occasion treat. The grounds are meticulously kept. It is a ways off the beaten path (yes, some bumpy dirt roads to get there) but so worth the journey.
We went back for dinner and enjoyed a meal to reach all the foodie senses!
Artisan breads.
Incredible drinks unique to Acre.
Food that was off-the-hook.
And a chocolate cake dessert with homemade ice cream and liquid chocolate poured over the entire dessert at the table. 5 spoons please!
This is a Do-NOT-Miss when in San Jose Del Cabo.
Oh, and peacocks wonder about. This one thinks he is a dog and follows people after he greets them.
Pets are welcome too of they don't pester the baby goats and peacocks.
