“Not its money`s worth”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went there for a night out. The restaurant is clean and so we're the bathrooms. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Now the food is not the cheapest, definitely not for Mexican standards. Thus we both expected a culinary experience but that was not delivered at all. We had the artichoke as a starter which was good. The beef carpachio was way too salty, had no oil nor pepper on it. My wife ordered the duck which had no sauce on it and was very dry. It only came with a bit of fruit compote. No vegetables or mash. My Alaskan king salmon was over done and, again, very salty. It only came on a bed of some udon noodles bathing in reduced soy sauce. The wine was so so. We paid nearly 180 usd for us both, which was not good value for our money. Perhaps if you compare it with other Mexican restaurants it is ok. But if you are used to upscale restaurants you might be disappointed here. Small note; some of the waiters had so much perfume on, it literally destroyed the food/wine flavors at times.

“Great food, service and ambience”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

set near the marina area of cabo, you come through some heavy glass doors into a courtyard style restaurant. the music is light, the tables are well spaced, and immediately receive a smiling face. chalk boards with the daily food and drink choices, the waiter offering some friendly suggestions.
great food, no rush to leave, and the maître di came at the end of the meal to offer a liquor on the house, and make sure our experience was first class. we will return. many thanks.

Exceptional experience; the artichokes were truly amazing, not to miss; also loved the "special" steak dish which was marinated in wonderful spices; sat in a pretty outdoor courtyard area; really sweet and friendly wait staff; good mix of music; the owner came and chatted with us-nice touch

“Pure Perfection!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The four of us chanced upon this treasure of a restaurant one night and all I can say is...it was AMAZING. The homemade fettuccini alfredo with artichokes was simply delicious. They make their own unique cocktails as well. Would highly recommend it to everyone!

“a special place in mi corazon...”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Exceptional service. Fantastic food. And great ambiance. The best fine dining restaurant in Cabo San Lucas with locally-sourced features and reasonable prices for the quality of food.

My wife and I stumbled on this place when walking downtown from our hotel. We were greeted by a member of the staff who explained that the menu (written daily on rolling white boards) changes based on what the chef has procured from the local market.

We had the roasted artichoke, the artichoke pasta, and lobster ravioli. All the pasta was cooked to a perfect hand-made al dente. Paired with the garlic butter, bread, and a tequila and chili powder manhattan, this was easily the best meal on the peninsula and probably the best i've had in the last few years.

I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone in Cabo, but especially to those in the Medano Beach area who are staying in the restaurant's backyard.
