Amazing Atmosphere and Location! Great Service! Okay Food...

The location is AMAZING! It's right up against the Pacific Ocean. You'll hear and see the waves crashing onto the beach. The view is lined by a huge infinity pool that perfectly blends in with the ocean, finished with a bar hut in the middle. All around are nice chairs and tables with romantic... read more

If you're interested in fabulous cuisine in a romantic setting at the edge of the Pacific then look no further than Don Manuel's at The Resort at Pedregal (formerly The Capella Pedregal). Perfect for any special occasion or simply to experience a dining experience you'll never forget. A beautifully lit 1500 ft tunnel blasted through a mountain of granite brings... More

Delicious! Preferred the lunch menu. Fantastic guacamole. Also really enjoyed the cheeseburger. Expensive, but worth it.

We recently stayed at the resort and ate a meal here and the other restaurant on property. We have visited Cabo many times and stayed at the other fancy places like One and Only and Las Ventanas but Don Manuel is special. Wonderful greeting. Big table nicely spaced. Comfy chairs. Attentive service but not too much. Menu had great items... More

Don Manuel's is one of the best restaurants in Los Cabos. It's higher priced, but should save it for a date night in Cabo. Romantic, with excellent wine choices. Be sure to check out the wine cellar!

We visited here on the day it reopened for business after the hurricane in January 2015. Despite being opening day, the service and the food were all superb. The staff is extremely well trained, they know their food and they know their business. The food was excellent and reasonably inventive. However the pricing is just so astronomically high (reminiscent of... More

Don Manuel's has an incredible view of the ocean. It has exquisite, homemade food and fantastic service! The tortillas are scrumptious and the orange juice is fresh-squeezed. There is a wood oven and they make all their pastries daily. All the entrees are delicious and presented beautifully. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always smiling. We especially enjoyed: Martin,... More

I took my significant other to Don Manuel's for his birthday. The location is gorgeous and it was a beautiful night, so we sat outside. Our waiter, Simon, was extremely attentive. This restaurant is pure luxury. They even had Guwurztraminer wine. This is the first time I've seen this in Cabo and Simon was helpful and got the name of... More

We stayed at Capella Pedregal 2 days and had 3 meals at Don Manuel: 2 dinners and 1 lunch. It was always awesome! The food is delicious and very well presented. Each dish is a composition of several ingredients and they are all expressed at their best: you can taste them one by one and they make a perfect "ensemble"... More
