After seeing photos and hearing good things about this place, my wife and i went here 2 times in 1 week. The atmosphere is amazing, service was very good, excellent wine selection. I knew before we arrived, the food would be expensive, but no kids on vacation with my wife, money was not going to dictate our nights out together... More

Beautiful view and beautiful drinks! A must see! This is a great place for a celebration. The restaurant is very good but pricey. The bar is a great way to enjoy the beauty of Palmilla!

Monday, June 23rd, 2014 - Wanted to surprise my wife on her birthday by taking her to one of the "supposedly" best restaurants in Cabo. I called beforehand to let them know it was her birthday so they could have a detail such as a dessert with a happy birthday note or something. Unfortunately, the experience was not what we... More

An open-air setting near the sea. Very nicely decorated. Very good Mexican live music. But the food is not as good. I've ordered pork, which turned out very hard and dry - did not finish my meal. The Market restaurant at the same hotel is much better.

This place was one of the top 2 or three dining venues I've EVER visited. Prior to this, the Sunset da Mona Lisa in Cabo was my favorite here in BCS, but this is our ultimate place now. The setting can't be beat; the resort is like a tropical wonderland once you are off the highway and in lovely Palmilla.... More

This is a great restaurant on the One&Only property. Great views of the ocean for nighttime dining. They typically have a live band playing which is great for background music against the sound of waves in the ocean. The problem is, it's RIDICULOUSLY over priced. I mean, it's abusive. Don't get me wrong. I have no problem paying for a... More

We had to refill our own wine and water. bummer. We didn't stay at this hotel (Las Ventanas) so it was nice to get out and try a different restaurant!

This was our 3 visit to Aqua. We went twice when we were here in 2012, it was that good. We were excited to spend our first night back at Aqua. It was marginal, from the service to the food. I don't know what has changed but it is not a change for the better. My fish was basically fish... More

Before you go, make sure that you are prepared to spend a lot of money but I assure you that it will be worth it! The location is gorgeous - inside and out! Staff is extremely attentive and aims to please and make you happy from start to finish. Food was delicious. Very romantic setting.

What a fun idea for my birthday and a gorgeous bar too! My husband and son set this up for me and we all loved it! Give yourself an extra hour to enjoy the bar and view before dinner and take flight with food and tequila pairings. Reservations a must! Follow up with a lovely meal!
