We love to eat at this restaurant. The views are romantic and the ambiance is second to none. We like to order the seafood and steaks on the menu. Its a pricey menu but you are paying for the atmosphere. We love Esperanza and the Cocina del Mar.

This is definitely a splurge. Our bill here was bigger than at Seared, but the view and sitting by the ocean was fantastic. The service was excellent. We didn't enjoy the food quite as much as at Seared, but it was still very good. The resort is beautiful.

View / Ambiance: 5/5 Service: 5/5 Food: 3/5 We opted for the prix fixe menu. They have a la carte options, but really it is the same items from the prix fixe menu, except you can pick and choose. From the moment you walk they treat you as a special guest. The ambiance and views were breathtaking. Get here early... More

We wanted to splurge on a nice romantic meal while on our honeymoon and decided to try the Cocina del Mar. The view was breathtaking. The atmosphere was romantic with the tables right on a cliff over the water. The staff was very attentive and even surprised us with champagne when they found out it was our honeymoon. The food...

Friends referred us and we loved it. Service was fantastic and food and views were one the best in Cabo. Make sure to stay after for a visit to the fire pit for a port or cigar and conversation.

We went here for a birthday dinner and were promptly greeted and taken to our table outside on the point overlooking the waves. The servers do not rush your meal/drinks/etc so if you are the kind of person who cannot take in the surroundings and take in all of the aspects of your experience this place isnt for you. Each...
