The signature Restaurant at Esperanza follows the Auberge tradition of featuring superb cuisine in a sophisticated yet casual setting. Carved into bluffs overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the restaurant features three levels of stone terraces flowing from a circular palapa-roofed dining room down to the property's two sandy coves. The menu features Cocina del Sol "Sun Filled" Mediterranean-influenced cooking that incorporates the local resources and regional flavors. Complementing the menu is an extensive wine list showcasing selection from the Old and New World including several Baja Selections as well as a Tequila menu featuring more than 100 selections and a humidor.

amazing food service & experience

The view is amazing with the water splashing up on the rocks. The restaurant and bar area are gorgeous. All of the servers were on point, total class acts. The food did not disappoint, fantastic meal!

We had an amazing experience at this restaurant. Our server, Guadalupe was remarkable as well as the food, breathtaking view of the ocean, and the overall ambiance of the place. I would come back to Cabo just to go here again.

Food and company was amazing. Service was impeccable and the view was amazing. Freshest fish and an excellent steak. The smell of ocean air and flickering candlelight set the night off right!
