“Sadly dsappointing!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Get out your walking shoes to find it.
The space was --some might say Grand I say massive. The service solicitous but rigid and uptight. The food was very tasty and presented nicely.
Very pricy and would not accept dollars for payment. Really.

“Excellent food and service at the top restaurant in Cabo San Lucas”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

The food was excellent and the service matched the food. Fernando was a great waiter and Miquelon a wonderful host. Couldn't have been better.

“Awesome Restaurant, Great Staff, Excellent cuisine execution!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

My favorite restaurant for dinner at the Westin in San Jose del Cabo was Arrecifes. I loved the ambiance. The lighting was lower with a candle lit romantic feel. For cold appetizers we tasted the Yellow Fin Tuna Tartar, Sea Scallop Aguachile, and Sea Bass Ceviche. For hot appetizers: Huarache, and the Lamb Barbacoa Tamal. For Salads we tasted the Organic Farm Heirloom Tomatoes. For Soups we tasted the Chile Poblano Cream. For Main Courses we tasted the Mexican Sea Bass, and Yellow Fin Tuna. We ordered the Pacific Lobster off of the Grill Menu however the meat was a bit tough and could have been better cut by a steak knife versus butter knife. The seafood was beyond fresh, delicious and mouth watering and the local cuisine meats were equally impressive. For one of our dinners we opted to taste the Alpine Classic Fondue which was delicious, perfectly executed, and paired with an Apéritif that brought out all the key notes of the cheese (Yum). The staff was well dressed, friendly, and provided excellent service. They impressed the importance of providing the perfect dining experience by asking and giving us ample opportunity to provide feedback if our dining experience was not up to our expectations. We were very impressed. They made us feel very important and well taken care of. Thank you for the great experience.

“Elegant dining by the sea”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

The evening started out unevenly when they restaurant could not locate our reservations, made earlier in the day. The manager apologized profusely, and after a very short wait, we were seated. The service was wonderful, and the food outstanding. We ordered a bottle of the house Mexican Cabernet which we had tried previously, and they gave us no problems when we had to send the bottle back, due to the wine having an unusual off-taste. Our second selection, an Argentinian Malbec was perfect. Our party ordered a wide selection of the prime, aged beef and all were cooked to order, with wonderful vegetable side dishes. We also experienced a wonderful ceviche prepared with coconut milk. It was so good and unusual, that we asked for the recipe and one of the chefs came out and gave us a detailed description of how it was prepared. It was a most elegant and delightful evening, and we will definitely eat their again in future visits to the Westin.

“Awful Service, the worst night!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Last week we were at this restaurant my girlfriend , my friends and me. We were in Cabo from February 5 to 12 , every night we went out to dinner at very nice restaurants in Cabo , and Tuesday was our last night , so we decided to try in Arrecifes and it was the worst night of all , the service is very bad quality , presumed to be 4 diamonds and "fine dining" , but you get better care elsewhere cheap restaurant , we had to wait a long time for the menu , we had to ask for the wine list 3 times , the food is not bad, but the drinks reached the middle of dinner , my girlfriend asked still water and it never came , my friends started to complain and get in a bad mood, everytime we asked for something the waiter looked like get annoyed , and a man with gray hair , dark complexion came to talk to us, but in a very rude manner ignoring what we said, telling things that had no sense and his attitude was disrespectful to us, and we realized that he also was impolite to other people , I think his name was Joaqin , and possibly the manager, and he did nothing to improve our night, otherwise we all end up annoying and not even wanted to have dessert . How can be possible to allow people with this attitude and low level of education work in this place?? This was one of the worst experiences we had , because we had high expectations for this beautiful place, the view is stunning, but with a service as unpleasant is not possible enjoy it. I do NOT recommend visiting this place , unless you want to spend an awful night .

Arrecifes should not presume a quality that is not offered, we would never visit this restaurant again!!
