We had one dinner here this week and it was very good. The portions are on the small side--particularly the beef filet, as are the appetizers, and there are few salad options, but the preparation and food quality were excellent. The prices are high as you would expect, and the wine prices are too high--$150 USD for a Malbec, but... More

Loved the view. Very relaxing to view the ocean and here the waves in such beautiful weather. The food was great with enough variety and healthy choices also. Well prepared and service was great.

Have been looking forward to our visit to Palmilla for several years. Finally booked a dinner reservation at Agua, the 5 star restaurant and was very disappointing. Three out of four dinners were served cold, although the plates were very hot! Told management and they said they were very sorry and would talk to the chef and that was all.... More

I have never seen a restaurant so spectacularly adorned with details. This place is the most romantic restaurant I have ever seen, it is a visual feast. I don't have enough words to accurately transfer the experience to you. It is something you must experience for yourself. The food and service was over the top. There wasn't anything I didn't...

Excellent combination of food, drinks and an amazing view. I could not say enough nice things about the service team at Agua. They are so incredibly attentive and good at what they do. The menu is varied and designed with all tastes in mind. A little on the expensive side but then again anything 5 star in Cabo is expensive.... More

The 3 piece Mexican band made this a magical evening (may have been 4 piece....). The climate is so perfect for outdoor dining and the One&Only has set up a beautiful dining venue near the water. Tables not too close together; delightful menu. Even the bar is special--kind of a "tiki-hut" open sided room.

We travel to Cabo every February and enjoy trying different restaurants in the area. We have been to several mostly restaurants considered in the top tier. Agua was disappointing. The atmosphere is excellent. The food is average and expensive. I have no problem paying for good food but Agua does not fall into this category. The service was terrible and... More

We dined during the evening so it was an amazing view of San Jose del Cabo- all the lights made a beautiful background. The food was great and service superb!

We just had a drink at Agua after playing a round of golf at Palmilla but the atmosphere was serene and luxurious. The bar is round and has many different lanterns hanging from the rafters of the giant hut. We relaxed and enjoyed the view.

We vacation in the area every February, and tried Agua for the first time last week. Had every expectation for this to be a great experience, and was very underwhelmed. The atmosphere is excellent, the service was outright bad, the food was OK, but OK is not good enough for the prices. Love live music, which they had, but it... More
