Also, keep in mind there are no prices on the menu, which... More

Without a doubt the most delicious meal and STUNNING view of my whole vacation! We sat at a table at the very end of the cliff and the water happened to be a little rough that night, so prepare to get splashed a little! We were lucky enough to come on a night when the fireworks were shooting off the... More

This is a place for memories and memorable food. After looking for just the right place to celebrate an annual dual birthday dinner celebration, we chose Cocina del Mar. Our terrace hung over the rocks, with the feel of floating on the ocean. The sunset cooperated with an amazing light show, with the background of a Mexican band and fireworks... More

We set up a dinner here for my friend's bachelorette party (consisting of 13 ladies) and all of our jaws dropped when we arrived at Cocina del Mar. The hotel it's situated in, Esperanza, is truly one of the most stunning hotels I have ever seen. We were seated at an amazing table overlooking the ocean and had a spectacular... More

Dinner is a prix fixe dinner menu $76.00 3 courses. The food good, service was just okay. This is one of the hotel's restaurant and is convenient for Esperanza guests and has an amazing views. The restaurant is right on the cliff and waves break feet from your table.
