This is our 13thyear in Cabo. Every January 11th we go to Esperanza for my wife's birthday. This year the food was good but probably not good enough for the price, but OK. The service was HORRENDOUS. We were completely ignored for close to 45 minutes. Then they completely forgot to take one of our guests order. I had preordered... More

We had a group dinner of over 200. Beautiful location and surroundings right on the water. This is a very classy place. Had tuna as a main course which was good but not outstanding as I was hoping it would be. Decent wine.

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants anywhere. Great service, incredible ambiance. We almost didn't notice that the food didn't quite match the rest of the experience. Hate to mark this unique spot down, but the food was better elsewhere.

This review is about our experience last night "private" dining on the beach at Esperanza. We were a group of five couples and this was booked by friends of friends who were staying at Esperanza. The location of the table on the beach was spectacular but from the moment we arrived it appeared that we were in the twilight zone... More

After visiting a few years ago, our expectations were set really high. From the moment we arrived, we noted slight differences. Firstly, in the prior visit, the host greeted us at the cab door, and escorted us directly to the table. This time, we took the journey ourselves. The separation of the restaurant and lounge seemed like a huge step... More

You don't get your bang for your buck here. Price fixed menu at 805 for 3 courses, 90 for four. Wine way over priced. Food is uninspiring and average. Given the price, quiet the rip off. Pretty setting though, and great service.

Cocina del Mar was an amazing dining experience; highly recommend. Dining is outdoors amongst several levels of dining; food was absolutely wonderful, wait staff very attentive; and extra bonus with fireworks. We were seated directly above the ocean water which was fabulous! A true experience for all!

We did not stay at the resort, but ate dinner at the Cocina del Mar at Esperanza. My wife and I were in a party of eight (3 couples and two singles) that went there for dinner on a Tuesday night in early January 2017. Had reservations at 7pm and arrived at that time; they said our table was not... More

We had dinner there but was not staying at the hotel but as it was our last night in Cabo we decided to treat ourselves. The restaurant setting is just amazing , we were seated directly next to the edge so had amazing views out to sea. The waiters were very knowledgable and couldn't do enough for you. We chose...

I wrote a review of Cocina Del Mar in Feb of 2016 and gave it 5 stars because we truly had a 5 star experience. The menu was excellent, the service was excellent & the view was excellent! However, we just revisited in December of 2016 and had a completely different experience. I hope that it was just an "off"... More
