Arrived (about 6pm for dinner) to what looked like a mass waitress group interview session, chef strolled in a little later with what appeared to be superiority complex, although our waiter seemed to be sincere service was slow and a portion of our (one of four entrees) was forgotten. After ordering waiter returned to the table to report the chef could not prepare a particular dish for lack of ingredients. Although the food was acceptable, portions were small and lacking interest, and certainly not worth the price or aggravation. Final blow was being charged 270.00 pesos (about 25 american dollars) for 6 small Figi waters. Left very disappointed and feeling that they are trying to be something they are clearly not.

Last Jan. we loved their dinner. Today we had lunch at 2 p.m.. July. Choice of AC or outside--in humidity. AC is better. There was a good crowd in the AC part of the restaurant. Decor was beautiful, and simple. They will soon expand to include adjacent property. Free beer and hors d'oeuvre with entree. Chef came out to talk. Outstanding service. Good price and value. Good job of explaining menu. "Pier 19 Cocktail" was tasty, with scallops, many shrimp, fruit & veggies, but the octopus was too chewy. Fish soup was flavorful--loved it-- but crab was in its shell--hard to eat. This is our 6th trip to San Jose del Cabo and our 8th week here. This remains one of or favorites, along with Cynthia Fresh and Maison del Angel.

The chef here has trained her staff very well and she has great attention to detail. Each plate looks like a picture out of a magazine and tastes better than they look! My parents were impressed and they do not usually seem to be, having traveled and cruised all around the world. It is a new restaurant and every time I go back it is busier than the time before. I hope that it does not get to the point that you need a reservation just to get a table. The seafood is always great and ventured to the chicken this last time, since you cannot eat seafood seven nights a week. The setting is nice with part covered and part not with a wonderfully decorated tree going skyward.

My family and I came here a few months ago and we loved, the menu changed with new and even better ammenities, they have live music now and was half full when we were there, the chef came to our table and recommended a delicious oyster dish to share.
My wife and friends believe still the best place in town.
