3 course meal in paradise

We sat right on the tip of the point where we could hear and see the crashing waves. We split a bottle of wine, and each had an incredible 3 course meal. Needless to say it was amazing!

I had the best meal ever at Las Estrellas Restaurant at Auberge's Esperanza APRE. First of all the service by the pool, pool bar (yes you can eat/drink while swimming!) and restaurant is phenomenal. It is equal to any Michelin Five Star restaurant. They have put together a dream team here with Angel, Jesus, Pablo, Ignacio, Claudia & Miguel (Steward).... More

The views, water, and facility design are wonderful, unique, and definitely memorable. Our party of six raved about the food, the crashing waves, and fantastic evening we spent at this restaurant. Carlos did a great job serving us and the entire staff, including Jose Luis and the manager did well at ensuring we had a terrific time.

What a magnificent location-- one of the prettiest views in any restaurant I've eaten in around the world. It was a perfect evening in Cabo and sitting outdoors with the waves crashing below us was amazing. And now-- the food. I actually think the food has gotten better since the hurricane and since Esperanza has re-opened. The menu was a... More

I can't say enough about this place! Starting with the venue, which is, simply stated, breathtaking! The waves crashing on the rocky coast as we were sitting at one of 5 tables on a promontory jutting way out into the ocean made for a completely unique setting. The food was incredible, and the white chocolate soufflé is not to be... More
