What a fantastic view! Sitting on top of a cliff with waves crashing 40 feet below you is not your every day restaurant experience. Every aspect of the four course meal was great and we were lucky to go on a Thursday night which is the night they have fireworks over the restaurant.

The food was great. Enough that my husband and i usually shared. Breakfast was amazing!! The view and service was unbelievable once we came the first day they already knew our name and how I liked my coffee and my husbands favorite juice.

This restaurant located in the Esperanza resort is situated on the cliffs overlooking the sea of Cortez. This is a wonderful view especially in the evening as the sun sets and moon rises. The service was wonderful and attentive. The meal was great with fresh tomatoes for the salad and wonderful fish and chicken entrees. The best part was the... More

This is an incredible place to eat, it is open air, just down from an infinity pool, it overlooks crashing waves out to an ocean expanse. We had stopped by earlier to book a table and confirm the meal, a sea food burger and a steak burger. My friend and I split them. We arrived at 7 to a very... More

We were excited to eat at this restaurant. Its at a beautiful resort and located on the side of the cliff with great views. However, it was the worst service I have had in a really long time. The food was just okay, the prices were really high but the biggest disappointment of all was the neglect by the staff... More

To be honest, I hadn't looked into the resort and didn't know what to expect. The setting was stunning. And we arrived at sunset so it was really spectacular. The full moon also made for great tidal activity. But the menu was very special. I really like what the chef is doing with the new menu! Loved the mole sauce... More

We had a large party in celebration of my father's 80th birthday. The food and atmosphere could not have been better or more beautiful looking. An added delight was a musician playing later in the evening.

The drive to this property is beautiful. The grounds are amazing and as the views. The waves crashing into the large rocks next to your table were really cool. The setting is very romantic and a great location for a meal. The food was not great which was a disappointment. After reading the reviews, we decided to try it anyway.... More
