Wow! Now here's a great new, (albeit $$$) high-end restaurant in Cabo. We enjoyed a wonderful evening in February with our friends eating outside. The service was fantastic, the food - delicious. And a very nice bottle of wine to accompany. Well Done!

We decided to check out El Corazon del Alcachofa based on the recommendation of Paula (our concierge at Playa Grande). What an amazing experience! There was nothing about the meal, atmosphere or service that could be described as less than exceptional! The restaurant was a little hard to find (but well worth the effort) since there was no big sign, bright colors or “greeters” trying to get you inside. The understated elegance and stylish outside were just the beginning of an unforgetable dining experience.

My partner and I went all out – from appetizers to desserts along with cocktails, wines, after dinner drinks and coffee.
• El Beso del Diablo was not only fun to look at, it was a fantastic combination of flavors!
• The bread basket could have been a meal by itself
• Jurel Carpaccio & Homemade Panela – ordering seconds was an idea from the first bite
• Kobe Steak & Pork Ravioli were cooked to perfection
• I honestly do not know how to describe how good the creamed spinach was
• Piccolo 2009 red wine – not expensive but certainly something to look for at home
• Three deserts (for two of us) – the Chocolate Fondant was to die for, Pear Cheesecake and Panna Cotta were unbelievable.... I wish we would have also had the Tart Tartin and the Creme Brulee (but that might have been excessive – LOL)
• Casa Dragones Tequila – this was the smoothest best tasting Tequila ever! THIS IS A MUST HAVE!
• 1921 Tequila Cream

Everything about this meal was memorable! The concept was new and it was obvious everyone involved took pride in what they were doing. Service was, without a doubt, superb (thank you Sergio!) and the setting was beautiful – especially as night fell and the lights and candles came on all over the restaurant....

This was not be an inexpensive meal – but there is nothing we will do differently (except try ALL desserts) next time!

PS - did I mention how good the Casa Dragones Tequila is?

A must have is the grilled artichoke as well as the Kobe steak. If you are chocolate fan, chocolate fondant is one of your best choices.... Enjoy!

Great food served here. When we were approached by the owner, we thought he was a time share salesman and rebuffed him, only to find out he was genuinely concerned about how we liked our meal. Sorry buddy !!

We decided to try this restaurant after driving by several times last month. There is no sign, but a large back-lit artichoke shows on the front entrance wall. The atmosphere is hip but still warm. They have some contemporary decor mixed with local art. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We sat outside even though it was a little chilly. We were wrapped in soft and warm ponchos by the staff.
Several dry-erase boards are located around the restaurant with cocktail list and menu. They only make a certain number of each dish nightly and the dishes change daily based on availability of ingredients. As the dishes are chosen and served, the number beside the selection on the dry-erase board is lowered. It's different and I liked it! Short ribs were good and the Kobe tenderloin was good! The creamed spinach: DELICIOUS! Order it. They have a decent wine list. The service was the real clencher. Some of the best in Cabo without question. Everyone was personable, inviting, and helpful. They arrived at the table at the perfect time and didn't linger too long. It was a fabulous experience!!! The food was a bit expensive, but it's Cabo.....
