“Dinner once and breakfast 3 times - all world class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

There is no reason at all to depart Capella - I mean paradise - with food and views and service like this. From the bread to the drinks to the wine parings from local wines that we in the US have no access to - wow and wonderful.

“One of the best meals I have EVER had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have eaten at many fancy restaurants all over the world and Don Manuels was up there with some of the best. We arrived at the hotel and after driving through the beautiful entrance that was carved through a mountain , we were shown to the restaurant. We had to wait a little for our table to be ready so we grabbed a drink at the bar. I had a fresh Basil and Blueberry Vodka drink that was delicious , we had a chance to watch the bartender and it looked like everything he was using was fresh . It was a nice change from the all-inclusive sugary drinks . The service was great although a little slow at the end, we waited about 20 minutes to get out bill. The food was AMAZING and the freshest I have had in a long time . The presentation of all of the dishes we ordered was beautiful, it looked like art. The meal was very pricey but it was worth it , if you want to experience fine dining the proper way I highly suggest Don Manuels

“A classy experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was our second time to Don Manuel's and it didn't disappoint. Although pricey, this is a classy restaurant with excellent presentation and preparation. From the terrific breadsticks to the great desserts, this restaurant delivers through each course. Although half of our party didn't order a first course, the chef sent out a leek consomme and parmesan crusted crouton for them so that they wouldn't be sitting idly by. That attentiveness is what makes this a special place. The filet mignon with chocolate sauce main course enticed even our 16 year old to ask if we could put this on our "return to" list. The short ribs were expertly prepared as was the blackened tuna. The Mexican Chocolate tour dessert was sinful and the passion fruit brulee was a refreshing end to a great meal. With great views of the Pacific, this should be on your must do list in Cabo.
