This was my first trip to Cabo. My wife had been once before, and she was lucky enough to have a work event at Flora Farms. She and her colleagues loved it, so we knew we had to go back.

Rather than just visit the restaurant (which we heard it amazing), we decided to do one of the Flora Farms cooking classes. Base on our schedule it worked out for us to go on a Tuesday, which was a vegetable taco cooking class. At first I was a little weary just because it is not inexpensive, and I imagined that we had to be making some pretty special tacos for that price. I will tell you that from the moment we arrived at the property I knew it was going to be worth every penny.

We were quickly welcomed, and then we waited for about 10 minutes until they took our group back. There were 12 people in our class, which was a comfortable sized group for the space. We started with at tour of this wonderful, diverse property that has become something truly special. After the tour we officially started our class. We learned how to make roasted tomatillo salsa, lime cilantro cream, pico, roasted vegetables, rosemary guacamole and tortillas. It was such a unique experience working alongside some wonderful chefs. After you prepare the food and it is cooking, you have time to sit and your table where you are then served an enormous meal consisting of fresh salad using ingredients from the farm, along with the vegetable tacos. Then we wrapped up with a fresh key lime pie.

Be careful not to eat too many chips while you are making your salsa, pico, and guacamole...we fell for that trap and could barely make a dent in our actual meal. But the flavors mixed with the experience is something I will never forget. I would highly recommend Flora Farms, and specifically the cooking class, for anyone visiting the Cabo area that appreciates this type of place.

This space and ambiance is amazing and the food was delicious. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience. I went for my birthday with my family and they even made a little birthday sign for our table. My only complaint is I felt super rushed. As I sat finishing the amazing beets, several waiters came up and asked if I was done, one after another. I wasn’t. When I was, I put my plate aside and they came immediately to get it and then started taking up our placemats even as my mother still had bread in her hand that she had just started to butter. Then they took the bread basket too so there was no option of lingering with another slice, and she had to just hold her bread since they had taken all of the plates.

I know seats are in demand, and for very good reason, but the dining experience lacked the easy charm of its surroundings. Only my mom and I were eating so maybe we weren’t high priority customers with a hefty bill, but being treated like a commodity left a bitter taste to an otherwise lovely evening.

I’ve taken this class now twice. I had such a great experience in September 2019 with a friend, I brought another friend during my latest trip on Jan 20,2021. From reservation about 3 weeks ahead via email to Danielle through the fabulous meal after the class completion, everything was fabulous.

The class instructor team of Elliott, Hector, Marina (?), and Rosario (?) were very efficient and able to describe each step clearly. I took lots of photos and videos.

We saw how the corn masa flour is prepared and watched how the tamale masa was prepared with butter (instead of lard), chicken stock, sweet corn, salt and pepper. A demo is provided showing how to use the corn husks and shape the tamale masa for the filling. The shredded chicken filling and masa is provided for each class member to go back to their station to make their own tamale. You can make more than the initial set if you would like. The class sun it’s their tamales to be steamed while the class takes a tour of the beautiful organic farm grounds. Upon return from the tour you are given the Flora Farms signature margarita and then you make from scratch a tomatillo and chili pepper salsa. A special fresh guacamole is prepared in front of you along with the freshest Caesar salad.

Lunch is set with the group’s cooked tamales, Caesar salad, hibiscus cream sauce, guacamole and chips, and the salsa you personally prepared. A surprise dessert tamale topped with restaurant made homemade ice cream.

Everyone goes home with a booklet of all the recipes used for the class/lunch.
Note that the class is $115 plus tax ($133USD) and then plus the tip. It seems high but the 3 1/2 hour class with lunch and the signature margarita is actually a good deal considering that meals at the restaurant on site are pretty pricey. And any extras from the class lunch (tamales, salsa you made, and cream sauce) are packaged up for you to enjoy later. Go prepared to take home. I actually had an ice pack for this trip because we were staying at a resort unit with full kitchen and I wasn’t sure if we were going to shop in San Jose del Cabo after the class.

We arrived a couple hours early in order to look around and have a cocktail. 30 minutes is all you need to see the grounds, including the shops. Lots of children running around unsupervised, picking up the little ducklings and trampling the plants. We were seated after sunset and the atmosphere in the evening is terrific- beautiful lighting all around. More unsupervised kids running around the pathways blowing out the sidewalk candles and screeching at each other near people trying to enjoy their dinner. Where the heck are their parents?

Food arrived and the presentation is nice. Salad is delicious, bread is great. Pate appetizer is good. Main courses arrive, they look beautiful and are cooked well. However all three are way too salty and we can't fully enjoy them. That's a big disappointment considering you are paying a premium price for average food. We had the 1/2 chicken, fettuccine and raviolis.

I can't recommend this place, the unique atmosphere is overshadowed by loud families and their free range children. If you have sodium restrictions tell your waiter first. There is much better food for a much lower price elsewhere.

I wanted to love Flora Farms, but it sadly didn't live up to the hype. The evening started off well enough with a welcome drink upon arrival, and a complementary amuse bouche soup shooter. The burata appetizer was excellent as was the crudo (but neither require actual cooking). The sea bass entree was also good, but it went downhill from there. We got the chicken two ways and the side risotto. The risotto was a mashed potato consistency (which as any Italian food aficionado knows is blasphemy - it should run on the plate) and the chicken was overcooked both ways (although the parsnips were good). The drinks were also average - the watermelon julep was lacking in flavor. Finally the carrot cake was stodgy (as Paul Hollywood would say). The service was also questionably misogynistic, with the extra glass of wine and check going to my husband despite me (a female), asking for them both. The place was full of American tourists (as am I) but ultimately the establishment felt like a high end shopping mall's Cheesecake Factory. The most helpful person was the valet at the end of the night who made sure we found our Uber.

I was excited to read the reviews for this place, made reservations and drove an hour from Cabo San Lucas to enjoy a meal at the restaurant in what I thought was going to be a quaint organic farm setting. I made it down the dirt road, ingesting dust all the way, into a gravel parking lot filled with cars. "Hmmm," I thought, "This place must be larger than I thought!" I followed the path past two over-priced and rather disappointing gift shops. Then I saw it. A huge open air restaurant with live jazz music filled with American families. Not what I expected but I kept an open mind. There was no sample menu on the website and now I know why. The entire menu was high priced American food - including pizza. There wasn't a single Mexican item. The salads were fresh and had very little dressing on them so they were nothing to write home about. And the loaf of homemade bread was about $16!
I also booked a pedicure so we made our way to the spa. My friend was told she could wait for me but only in a designated area and was told quite sternly that she was not allowed to sit in the sun by the pool or to walk unattended through the garden area. If she wanted to see the garden, she'd have to either take an official tour or be willing to listen to the sales pitch for buying a place on the property. It felt a bit like Knotts Berry Farm in Southern California in it's commercialism. The woman who gave me my pedicure did not speak English so I ended up with a color I didn't want because it was simply too much work to have her leave each time I attempted to tell her something, have her go get someone to translate, and then proceed. If you are looking for a quaint and aesthetically pleasing farm, this is not the place! It's a tourist trap. I highly recommend you go next door to ACRE. We dropped by afterwards and were very impressed with the grounds, the bar, and the friendliness of the workers. It was classy, elegant, quiet, immaculate, and the gardens were a delight to walk through. Not vegetables, but gorgeous tropicals and cactus. It was night and day between the two places.

We arrived early to walk the beautiful grounds (recommended) and then enjoyed a spectacular lunch here. The fact that the ingredients are grown on the premises is impressive, but even more impressive is what they do with them. We enjoyed every dish we ordered. The house-made burrata was incredibly refreshing. The chopped salad was good. We were hesitant to order banh-mi in Mexico, but it was fantastic. The fennel sausage pizza was amazing.

It was a bit warm and humid, but they had fans around the dining area to keep the air flowing. Yes, the meal was pricey, but it was worth the experience. We enjoyed shopping in the little market area. There wasn’t an empty seat in the house, so make reservations! This isn’t a place you want to miss.

Overpriced, over rated and the service was terrible. We sat for 45 min and waited for our drinks to come, appetizers came before drinks. We sat there and waited for a long time for the dessert menu and then they did not come back for our order. So we just asked for the bill. We told the waiter we wanted to pay in pesos but we got it in US money. Then we told him we would pay the tip in cash so he told us to write it down on the paper. So we did only to find out they charged us again for the tip when l checked my credit card. I would not of minded leaving a 30% US tip if the service had been better.
Lots of better restaurants out there, save yourself some money.

We enjoyed our time at this beautiful farm. We made reservations for lunch and were able to walk around the grounds and explore. They have several stores to shop at, Santo Cabo being our favorite where they have organic and locally sourced ingredients in the skin care products they make. While waiting for our table we also played Corn Hole on the lawn, walked around the man made pond looking at turtles, walked thru the trails that we were allowed to access without being on a formal tour, shopped at the market, and grabbed some coffee. There are host/hostess stands around the property near the parking lot to help answer questions and sign you up for a tour if you didn’t register online ahead of time (which is strongly recommended). They have an ice cream cart outside the restaurant area. Our lunch was fabulous, the pizzas were really good along with all of the other items we got including desserts. They had fun mocktails for the kids and a nice bar selection from the bar. You can spend a long time here, or at minimum give yourself 30-45 minutes to explore and shop before or after eating in the restaurant. A wonderful farm to table experience in the Cabo area.

We went to Flora twice these past 2 weeks, once for dinner and another for breakfast. The consistent issue is the service. Dinner was busy so we cut them some slack-but it was 30m beside someone even took our drink order. For breakfast, it was not busy and we had to submit or coffee/juice order to 2 different servers. The beverages and food were great when they finally arrived but it was overshadowed by the service (both times there appeared to be plenty of servers but no manager overseeing).
