Good Food, Slow Service

Again I will say, as mentioned in my review of The Resort at Pedregal, the food at Don Manuel's was very good, but the service was very slow. It felt as if they were understaffed. Although our waiter was very attentive he was taking care of all of the guest seated inside which made for slow... read more

Don Manuel offers a good but not excellent dining experience. I ess disappointed there was not a better selection of Mexican cooking, both low and high. One evening there was an upsell bit of a lecture about reposado tequila at $35 a pour (U.S.). The tres leches cake is divine. The breakfast buffet ( at $40 U.S. + hefty service... More

What a beautiful garden setting. The food, custom margaritas were all excellent. When ordering the whole fish we were bombarded with flies so much so that there were 3 waiters around us shooing them away so we could eat. We think it might have been something in the cooking preparation that attracted them. Although we had this strange fly experience... More

We were very shocked at the poor service we received at this restaurant. The setting is beautiful but the we had to ask 3 and 4 times for simple things. Also, beware of the Champagne tasting area. They tell you that the prices are marked on the board; but they add additional service charges and gratuities when they hand you... More

Saved this place for last night of our vacation. Disappointed. Hair in my cocktail at bar. Sat for dinner about 8pm. Staff pleasant but some more fine dining training needed. A small bottle of water was $7! Appetizers very nice. Ordered fish for main but sent it back because it was overlooked. No guest recovery whatsoever not even the manager... More

Had a wonderful dinner with friends. Drinks we very well prepared, service in he bar was outstanding. The restaurant was out doors, no A/C. It was a little hot last night because of the tropical storm, so dress comfortably. The food was out of this world for this Cabo boy, at last a very high kitchen in Cabo. Had the... More

U gotta try the French toast. It is unlike no other. Words cannot describe. I ate it every day for breakfast for 6 days. Make sure you get the caramelized banana with it.

We enjoyed cocktails here about 4 times during our stay in Cabo. It is so relaxing both during the day and at night. Handcrafted cocktails were all very delicious and refreshing. Bar snacks were tasty. Service was excellent and we were welcomed for hours. Views are lovely albeit a bit obscured by some pool lounge chairs but still a pleasant... More
