Description: Cocina del Mar is known for its exquisite variety of fresh fish and seafood specialties. It utilizes only the freshest possible ingredients offered by La Baja, offering a light, simple, casual and progressive menu. We would call Baja, coastal, seafood restaurant concept. Is the best place for guests, owners and local visitors to celebrate life, love and friendship in a unique seating that maximizes views of the Sea of Cortez. Cocina del Mar embodies the simplicity and elegance of natural & fresh dining, the restaurant focuses on the pure essence of taste, with a genuine passion for providing an opportunity to slow down and indulge in a dining experience carefully crafted for the mind, body, and soul. Featuring local fare presented in a vibrant ─ bare style, such as tuna crudo ─ jicama taquitos or perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes with tomatillo salsa. Along the menu a selection of local, seasonal, sustainable and organic ingredients; such as simple grilled grouper with a ripe-raw tomato sauce or small progressive bites offered directly at the table, create a freshly and wholesome concept. CDM cuisine is based on the product of the coast of Baja California, where Cortez Sea local ingredients are the stars along with seasonal fresh organic vegetables from Cabo’s near small towns. This Cuisine is highly inspired by Mexican flavors. A menu inspired in seasonal and locally grown ingredients full of Mexican flavors with some Mediterranean hints. A selection of appetizers from an Abalone with green tomatillo sauce, to fresh oysters with passion fruit ─ light spicy cocktail sauce. The Chef highlights the wide selection of La Baja ingredients, resulting dishes such as roasted octopus with peppers, avocado and toasted white corn or al pastor totoaba with annatto seed sauce and grilled pineapple. Cocina del Mar is already known for showing a real empathy with those vegetarian trend healthy eaters who can enjoy an oven beet salad with hibiscus vinaigrette or a pan roasted eggplant with pico de gallo and cilantro.

Quite possibly one of the best meals we've had. To start, the setting is breathtaking. The property is lovely and dining on the cliffs overlooking the ocean was very special. The waitstaff was very attentive and informative. We were a party of 4 and everyone loved their selections. From appetizers to main courses, every dish was unique and flavorful. We opted for the four course option and the desserts did not disappoint. The chocolate lava cake was one of the best we've tasted. It was not an inexpensive evening, but well worth it for the unique ambiance and delicious cuisine. We will definitely be back next time we visit. Perfect choice for a special occasion.

Loved the breakfast here - the machaca burrito was excellent and so was the salmon lox bagel. Other things we tried were also great, but these two stand out the most. I recommend.

We had a wonderful meal here. Try to ask for a table overlooking the water, but we ate near the bar and had a great time. The menu has lots of wonderful choices, labelled for gluten free and vegetarian which was helpful. Highly recommend for a special dinner.

Beautiful setting right on the cliff. Lots of nice touches and great flavors. The service is only reason I'm eating it 4stars. Our head waiter forgot a few steps which we noticed for the table sitting in front of us....like the towels to start and fruit in our water. He also seemed a little stressed out. My polenta dish was very salty and I only took a few bites, they still charged us. but the rest of the meal was really excellent. There were awesome fireworks too. Be ready cause this place is very expensive. The dessert and muffins to take home were delicious!
