At this time the resort all of its restaurants are closed. We thank you for the patience and understanding as we move through a process of recovery from Hurricane Odile, which has impacted the entire area. We are doing everything possible to re-open so that we can welcome you, and our valued guests, back to One&Only Palmilla.
As of today our tentative re-opening date is March 15th 2015. We will continue to update our websites with information, as it is hard to confirm a date. Please check back soon for any updates.

Agua Restaurant - One & Only Palmilla reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Paradise!

    Wow! This was a wonderful experience! We were celebrating my partner's birthday. Picture sitting on the patio looking out to San Jose across the Sea of Cortez, enjoying a quality martini. Then ordering an amazing meal and receiving absolute top notch service. The staff accommodated our dietary allergies with no fuss. Chef Darouch stopped by several times and provided a great wine pairing suggestion. Every part of the meal, from the salad to the main course to the wine and desserts were fantastic.

    Went to Agua for lunch for the second time in 9 days based on an excellent experience the first time. Food was still superb and view still magnificent, however the impeccable service we had on our first visit significantly deteriorated this time. Service was slow and less than attentive. Staff seemed more interested in servicing regulars and residents than us. We expect consistency from an establishment of this level

    Agua is part of Pamilla Resort which is a member of the ultra luxurious One and Only Resort Group. Food and service at the restaurant follow the same high standards. Prices are also of the same high stand but quality of food, service and ambiance justify it Your visit starts with a 30 second golf cart ride down an treelined path from valet parking to the restaurant overlooking the Pacific. Both inside and outside dining are available but the ambience and view outside are far superior if weather is good. Serving staff are very helpful and attentive but not overbearing. Our food orders(shrimp salad and red snapper) were done to perfection and well presented. Special drinks of the day are enormous and tasty

    Overrated and overpriced. I get the impression Agua is skating on the fact that it's the restaurant at One and Only Palmilla. We found the dishes to be somewhat salty and very 'package-y' tasting. I would have expected fresher ingredients and some 'wow' flavors, but none of the dishes we had (4 courses each) were anything to write home about. Disappointing really - it could - and should- be so much more, especially for the price and location.

    Amazing restaurant on the beautiful One and Only Palmilla resort in the Tourist Corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. We come every year and stay in Cabo San Lucas and the short drive is definitely worth it. This is a pricey restaurant but it is worth every penny. We have never been disappointed with the food or the ambience. We get an appetizer, entree and dessert every time because we don't want to miss out on a thing. The view is beautiful overlooking the bay while eating outdoors.

    The only reason I gave Agua 5 stars is because there is nothing higher. We were treated like royalty from the time we came on grounds. The wine list was extensive. The menu had a variety of fresh fish and choice beef. We were there for our anniversary. The menu had Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Pitler on top. We were given a comp. dessert of a dark chocolate heart filled with vanilla bean ice cream and strawberries. The food was amazing. Our table overlooked the Sea of Cortez. Nothing about the night was less than perfect.

    excellent food at a wonderful Cabo hotel. We'd been to the fancier resto previously on another vacay but this was one of those outstanding nights. The food was fabulous, the site on a rolling lawn overlooking the ocean was made even better by fireworks across the bay in San Jose and a small but memorable performance by Antonio Zepeda, a well known Mexican musician. I had the most gigantic and succulent shrimp dish and my husband had a grilled red snapper with blanced vegetables. If only they could move part and parcel to LA

    As always Aqua did not disappoint this year. The food was spectacular and the wine steward gave us two amazing recommendations that were not traditional finds. Won't miss this place any time I am within 100 miles.

    One of the most AMAZING dining experiences I've ever had!!! We requested a Gluten free option for one and they not only accommodated us w/ her entree but also took it a step further and made gluten free bread, and dessert for her. Above & beyond!!! It was a girls night so we especially enjoyed all the little extra touches like the purse stand...Amazing!!!

    We had the most amazing experience at Agua. As our "big night out," it was the perfect setting. The chef's creations were fabulous - the braised short-rib pasta was heavenly. And there really is no better place to dine than outside with a view of the water through amazing landscaping. Service was impeccable. In all, the perfect dining experience.

    Agua is located in the heart of the Palmilla resort. The scenic view of the water, as well as the grounds of the resort itself, are breathtaking. The level of service from the waitstaff could not have been higher, and our food was exquisite. Pricey but so worth it!

    This was the best restaurant we had been to in a while. The service was impeccable, and the food and wine only even more impressive. It was our honeymoon, and they made us our own personalized menu, as well as sat us on the ocean and away from other tables. Agua is the reason I would return to Cabo for a second honeymoon.

    The food was good but it really bothers me to pay more in Mexico than the best restaurants in nyc. I ordered the fois gras and got a piece so small it was barely a bite, I didn't even say anything and shortly after another plate arrived with a much larger piece. A bottle of Silver Oak 2002 was $475.00 a little steep!!! The best value in town is Gardenias a taco joint by the mall.
