“Beautiful location at Capella, wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

First class restaurant at Capella Pedregal. Beautiful drive thru tunnel and mountain. Restaurant overlooks pool, beach and pacific ocean. Can eat outside or in private secluded areas indoors.

Wide deletion of appetizers including duck tamales, scallops, masa, tuna. Dinners were phenomenal - veal chop, blackened tuna and short ribs.

Desserts were served in the kitchen with 15 choices to pick from (as many as u wanted). Nice wine list, great service and extensive wine list.

Not to be missed on your next visit to Cabo.

“Best fine dining in Cabo San Lucas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

I live in Cabo and love to eat out. Last night me and my boyfriend went again to Don Manuel's, and I just need to write this review. We've been here several times before, and it was always excellent, but this time I decided to write a review, as we realized yesterday that Don Manuel's really should be rated as a #1 restaurant in Cabo.
The menu is excellent, I love it because they always have something new, as they adjust the menu to the season. The restaurant works by concept "farm to table", so you can be sure that your meal is fresh and organic every single time!
I am an absolute fan of Tuna tiraditos (starter), and last night I had sea bass on macadamia crust. Both exquisite! My boyfriend started the dinner with ceviche, and then continued with cochinita pibil. He is Mexican and very picky about food. He said that he never tasted this good cochinita outside Yucatan area (where it originally comes from), which is truly a big compliment.
We were full already but I never can skip the dessert at Don Manuel's - as I'm a chocolate addict we had Chocolate study from Yucatan, and it is really to lick your fingers.
I love the wine selection at the restaurant, and if you are interested, you can ask the sommelier to show you the cava!
Also i should not forget the service - very attentive and friendly. Several of waiters took care that everything was in order and even restaurant manager Marcel came by to check if all is well.
Don Manuel's is my favorite fine dining restaurant in Cabo; and even if you are not staying at the Capella Pedregal resort, you can have a dinner there with prior reservation. We highly recommend it and I can't wait when we'll go back again!

“Great Ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2011

My husband and I dined at Don Manuel and enjoyed the food, service and ambiance very much. Also worth a trip to check out Capella-its a beautifuly designed resort. The black cod was delicious!

“Beautiful ambience and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2011

Where to start? the off menu special appetizers of sea bass ceviche and the scallops with risotto were outstanding. The beet salad is always so good.
Black Cod main course is small but perfect, the beef short ribs excellent.
Desserts are a work of art and disappeared very quickly!
