The new Cocina Del Mar Restaurant will awaken your sense with coastal Baja culinary artistry in a stunning seaside setting. With the November 2018 re-opening, the fully reimagined restaurant, bar and lounge have become the most dramatic dining destination in Cabo San Lucas. Perched atop striking cliffs overlooking the two private beaches of Esperanza Resort, the new menu will take you on a culinary journey through the Sea of Cortez and Cabo’s verdant farms.

Enter a buzzing lantern-lit bar and lounge that invites you to linger over hand-crafted cocktails before sauntering down to
dinner above a cascade of oceanfront terraces kissed by white-capped waves. The outdoor exhibition kitchen is alive with energy as guests engage with chefs and explore bites of coastal Baja cuisine and regionally inspired cocktails beside a glowing wood fired oven.

    We were in Cabo for our honeymoon and this was absolutely worth the trip from our resort near San Jose del Cabo. The view and scenery directly on cliffs only a few feet from the sea is incredible. The sommelier had excellent recommendations, the staff was excellent, and everything we ordered was outstanding. A truly memorable meal that helped make our honeymoon even more special and well worth the price.

    A friend recommended this place. Everything was amazing. The portions of food were large could have shared dinner with my husband. It is pricey so be prepared for that but it was worth every penny.

    Visitamos el lugar para celebrar nuestro aniversario! Nos encantó porque llegamos en un horario que no había nadie así que fue perfecto para tomar unas bellas fotografías. El lugar tiene una vista encantadora, el servicio excelente! La comida no fue tan buena como lo esperábamos! Un poco salado para nuestro gusto! Gracias!

    It was a beautiful, windy evening. Our server provided a blanket for my wife which was very appreciated & needed with the cooler winds. We were sat at a corner table on a back terrace near a propane heater which provided some additional lighting and warmth…it did go out before our evening concluded. The group nearest us was quite loud which was unfortunate. The service was amazing and food delicious & fresh with attention to detail. We celebrated our anniversary and the tres leches cake with message & sparkler was a nice touch. We would like to return perhaps another visit and have an additional experience at Cocina Del Mar.

She was funny and engaging and an absolute delight. All of the staff was courteous and welcoming. The views, cocktails and food were unrivaled. So glad we ended our stay in Cabo at this incredible restaurant.

    This was the first time coming to Covina Del Mar and we’ve been coming to Cabo almost 30 years. This is our new favorite restaurant! The ambiance and decor are beautiful overlooking the cliffs into the sea. The wait staff is attentive and friendly and the food is wonderful. I had the lobster risotto, it was delicious, so much lobster and abundant portion I couldn’t finish it all. Will be on our list to eat every time!
