“Great Food and Terrace atomsphere hard to beat”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

One of the best ribeye steaks I've tasted. Time between courses alittle long but we didn't mind as we're on a terrace with a great view of beach, ocean and moon. Even supplied us reading glasses for menu review and a heater as it gets a little more chilly than anticipated with breeze and sunburns.

“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Our group of six had dinner at De Cortez. The setting on the oceanfront was beautiful and a great way to end our last night in Cabo. The wait staff, their presentation and service were excellent, and we all enjoyed our dinners. Being a high-end resort restaurant, the prices, as expected, are high, but overall we were very pleased with our dining experience.

“Friendly Beautiful Dining”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

My wife and I dined here and were pleased with the outcome. I've rated it 4 stars because compared with other world class restaurants, it did not quit match up. However, it has a very nice atmosphere, excellent ocean views, great service, good quality food and a good menu. I would come back.

“Quiet and Romantic”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We began our week's stay at the Hacienda del Mar resort by dining seaside at the De Cortez restaurant. Food and service were superb. And the atmosphere is divine. You will not be disappointed with this gourmet choice. Kudos to the de Cortez chef and staff.

“De Cortez, We Still Miss You”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Last year, I reviewed de Cortez after a very disappointing experience in 2/13. The former chef and most of the long-time wait staff had left since our visit in 2/12, the menu and concept had changed and the quality of the food and service had deteriorated to an unacceptable level. We were excited to read that a new chef had been brought on board in 2013 so gave de Cortez another chance in 2/14. Unfortunately, we won't be returning again. If the menu had changed, it wasn't noticeable. Pricing continues to be exorbitant for the quality of the food and portion size, even considering the 20% off coupon included by the Sheraton as part of our check-in package. The setting of de Cortez is simply beautiful and service had improved over last year, Both the bread and the amuse-bouche included with the meal were good. However, our rack-of lamb was over-cooked, unseasoned and miniscule, although the mushroom side was tasty. Fresh rolls, a tasty amuse-bouche and nicely prepared mushrooms aren't enough to entice us to return to de Cortez.
