We were in Cabo for 10 days and I can say that this was our best meal! The food, service, and atmosphere were delightful. Go around dusk for the best time. The waves crashing on the rocks were very enjoyable. However, the people sitting across from us, did get hit by a wave!

The view is fantastic and the food is great. Service is well prepared and seem happy to work there. Go before gets too dark so you can enjoy the view. The food plus view plus service is a perfect combination.

I loved sitting on the terraces watching the waves crash against the walls. They light it up and it's very dramatic. The fireworks are awesome, too.
