My husband and I just got back from 10 days in Cabo. We stayed at another resort ( not Capella) but we made our reservation at El Farallon a month in advance to get a reservation time of 5:30 so we could be there for sunset.
Last year, we were in Cabo and went on a sunset cruise, and noticed this beautiful restaurant jutting out from the cliffs. We inquired about it, found out it was El Farallon, and vowed to eat there next time we went to Cabo. The location alone was enough to make us want to go there! It is literally situated in the rocky cliffs above the ocean, with the waves crashing below you! When we knew we were going to Cabo this year, I made a reso and found out about the "menu".
When we arrived at the Capella resort, we were blown away! What a place! We were escorted to El Farallon, and it was everything we had seen from afar, and more! There is no set menu, as you choose from a blackboard, all the fresh catches of the day. I chose the Mahi Mahi, one scallop, and one shrimp. Everything is priced by weight, in my case, the Mahi Mahi was $37 for a 6 ounce, and $10 for each scallop and shrimp. With the price you pay for your "meat", you get a soup to start, a trio of appetizers, and 2 sides of your choice to go with your meat. A pretty good deal I thought for mine, but my Husband's, not so much. He is not a seafood eater, so he went with the Ribeye, which is the only item that you can't pick the weight, so he ended up with a 12 ounce Ribeye!! Way too much, and the price was a little excessive, $60! They really should give you the weight option on the Ribeye as well. Our dinner was fantastic overall, but my husband's steak was average, and for that price, should've been superb! We are from Alberta, where we are used to fantastic steaks, so he was a little disappointed, but this place is not known for steak! ( he really needs to start eating seafood! ( : One more thing I will add, is their wine by the glass is quite pricey ($16-20) so it adds up if you have 2 or more glasses! Our final bill with tip was $240, ( we both had a few drinks) so be prepared to have a pricey evening!
Overall, the service was fantastic and you can't beat the atmosphere! So romantic and definitely a dining experience you won't have on a regular basis! I recommend making your reservation between 5:30-6:00 so you can enjoy the sunset, as it is very dark there once the sun goes down and you can't enjoy the beautiful view. If you are celebrating something or just want one fancy dinner while in Cabo, I highly recommend El Farralon!
