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.

A few things about this amazing place. 1. The drive into the grounds in incredible. The road winds trhough impeccably maintained landscaping, and you enter through a gorgeous gate onto the property itself. 2. The property. As beautiful a view as anyplace in the world. While you're not QUIET as beach front as El Farallon, it's pretty darn close, the... More

This restaurant is very good. It was recommended to us by friends, -fellow foodies, based on the experience and setting moreso than the food. That's not to say the food was bad, it's just not excellent by gourmet standards. However I would absolutely recommend the experience due to the wonderful location. When you sit out on the terrace, you are... More

Wow, what a beautiful restaurant. We were staying next door at Hacienda Encantada and it was well worth it to leave our resort and go there. The wine selection was excellent and the food was perfectly prepared. We had a table so close the Ocean that we could feel the mist of the waves crashing, it was so incredible. They... More

This was a wonderful surprise. The restaurant is tucked away at the end of a long, winding road that takes you to the edge of the sea. The view from the restaurant is breath-taking. The architecture of the restaurant was very beautiful. The service was superb and the food was inventive and delicious.
