The wine list was absolutely ridiculous with mediocre wines that were hugely overpriced! Then the entree came with the over cooked fish. You just shake your head and say why did I even think of coming to this God forsaken country. This restaurant had difficulty...meeting the low standards it sets for themselves. A concentration of gracious incompetence! $350 dinner for 2 a horrible value! Views are better in Northern California!More

We received outstanding service by Adan Blanco and his team, Carlos specifically, our servers, were excellent and knowledgeable. Truly, everyone that came to the table was so natural, helpful and such a pleasure to talk to. A true vision of the passion for service. Our...appetizers including the yellowtail sashimi, blue fin tuna crudo were the best, we also ordered the fresh oysters, we had an exquisite dinner. The charred octopus was spectacular, the blue colossal Shrimp and rice was very tasteful. Our main dishes were phenomenal and the combination of flavors were delicious, the catch of the day was cooked to perfection. The view was magnificent, we came after sunset but the view and the sound of the waves under you was amazing. If you are in Cabo, Cocina Del Mar is a must try! Delicious and most unique service ever! We loved it and definitely will be back for another experience with the Auberge Esperanza family.More

We took an Uber here from Cabo San Lucas. You enter the property and it is a beautiful drive from the main road to the hotel and restaurant. The restaurant is on a cliff overlooking the ocean. We came at night so we did not...really get to see the view, but it must be amazing. The food was very good and so was the service. All the servers were efficient and friendly. The food is quite expensive but with the location and ambience, and the very good food, it was worth it. We were there rather late and I thought it would be difficult to get an Uber back, but the Uber came within minutes.More

Each year, over the last 6 years, we select one fine dining restaurant during our annual trip to Cabo. In 2023 we went to Cocina Del Mar. It is by far the best. Great food, great view, great ambiance, great service… all without being overly...decadent.More

We celebrated our anniversary here in March and I never wrote a review. It was so impressive- I have to leave one. The food and views were so so good. We watched the sunset and whales jumping galore. Such a beautiful evening. The wait staff...was great and attentive. Fireworks at the end of the evening (shot from the beach below) were the cherry on top for our celebration.More

We were on vacation with friends and this was by far our best dining experience of the trip. Javier took incredible care of us and even helped us surprise our newly engaged friends with a beautiful and delicious dessert platter. I ordered the risotto and...everyone at the table agreed it was the best thing we tasted during our time in Cabo San Lucas. The views are great, but the food and service is even better.More

I wanted to enjoy lunch at the resort where "The Heartbreak Kid" was filmed. The view was amazing and the food was even more amazing. My wife and I shared a surf and turf meal. The shrimp and steak was delicious. Margaritas were also amazing....Guacamole appetizer with chips also delicious. When we checked in for lunch, the hostess asked us if we were celebrating anything and we stated that we were on our honeymoon. They surprised us with a delicious red velvet cake. Very thoughtful and unexpected.More

Had a wonderful meal with 3 other couples - enjoying the most fabulous setting! This was our final dinner plan for Cabo and it did not disappoint. The property is so beautiful and multiple servers were very attentive (possibly because of our party of 8)....We got a few apps for the table (scallops and burrata) that were both delicious. I had the fettuccine with short ribs. Hardly put a dent in it as it was loaded with meat! I'm a big eater and hated our flights were out next morning as I've been craving this since having it (couldn't take leftovers). We did have a windy evening but were given blankets and a space heater. Can't control the wind! Was still a fabulous evening :).More

We have spent a lot of time in Cabo. Usually we stay at the Waldorf Astoria Pedregal, yet we are curious about the other luxury resorts. Esperanza is a beautiful, yet remote resort. We actually met a manager at the resort who graciously gave us...a tour of the grounds. The setting of the restaurant Covina Del Mar was beautiful. At the beginning the staff was very attentive. We were surprised by the cost of cocktails. $40 glass of Chardonnay! The food was good, not the best in Cabo, but good. Once the dinner was served our waitress disappeared. There were 2 other tables near us, all of which were neglected. So much so, we all started joking. “Where’d she go???” Finally my husband got up and found someone to help. We never received an explanation, apology, only the bill!! We had HIGH hopes to plan a stay in the future at Esperanza. But after our experience in their upscale restaurant, we have written off the Esperanza.More

My husband and I have dined here twice before and now brought our 3 children to enjoy the gorgeous view and food. Try to plan to arrive at least 45 min prior to sunset to really take in the scenery. The tall trees block the...sunset so make sure to arrive early even to have a drink before dinner. Our server was excellent and her service was perfect. Food is delicious — I wish I could have the recipe for the rigatoni dish. It was incredible. We will be back next spring break!More
