Staying at Esperanza Resort -- fabulous! -- more of that in another review.
Rented a car and drove to Casiano's among other gourmet jewels in this place.
An easy 25 min. Drive from our resort. Apparently Casiano's have been in their new place for a short time.
A nicely appointed small restaurant --- no menus , which is great as you get pleasantly surprised with what the chef has in store for you.
Waiter recommended a great mexican Cabarnet sauvignon -- PICCOLO that "opened up" in the space of a few minutes to our surprise! Already on a roll with a great wine -- came the amuse bouche - a seafood tomato compote with goat cheese on toast.
My wife opted for the three course dinner and i for the five course dinner.
First appetizer was a collection of perfectly pan fried scallops with a green puree, a chicken oxaca mole tamale and a lobster tail in its own sauce --- superb!! It went to even better with soft shell crab, filet of beef and on and on!! Dessert was equally delicious. Too long to detail all the delicious food here. Suffice it to say that each course was different in taste , texture and preparation from the other.
The food is not cheap -- approx. $200 for both of us. An equivalent experience in the US would easily have approached $ 400. We think it was money well spent. Incidentally the chef recently prepared his food for visiting heads of state at the recent G 20 summit in Cabo. We can see why!!
Service is meticulous and the servers know their food well.
For a special celebration or if you are looking for a true gourmet feast --- this place is not to be missed.
Four nights here and thus far we have hit bullseye with every restaurant we chose to dine at
Hacienda y cochina
Cabo obviously has a pretty high standard of cuisine compared to cancun ( where we usually go ) which seems to have gotten stale and very expensive for the quality of food served -- that is our humble opinion.
