Cocina del Mar at Esperanza Resort
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.

Amazing experience all around. Great food, great vibe, great views!
Hermoso lugar. La comida deliciosa pero extremadamente caro. Alrededor de 700 pesos por unos huevos. Una mimosa en 570.00, etc.
Way over priced. Great service, very average food.
Food and view were outstanding. Only knocks we’re the prices which felt high and the gusting wind we experienced. All tables are outdoors so plan accordingly based on the weather.
Absolutely gorgeous restaurant with delicious food and incredible service!
What an outstanding experience dining right on the ocean the service couldn’t of been better the food was beautiful the drinks were delicious everything was perfect it’s a perfect 10
Very overpriced but nice ambiance and good service. My steak was $78 and grilled broccoli $26, not including tax and service. Steak was not spectacular.
The experience of having lunch at Cocina del Mar is nothing compared to having dinner there. Dinner’s menu is more complete with various options. On the other hand, there are fewer options for lunch, which disappointed us a little bit. Also, ambiance is better during the night since there is music, a show of lights, and a more lively atmosphere. Overall the restaurant is exceptional, however I would recommend it for dinner.
Beautiful place with amazing food
Excellent service and magical atmosphere with delicious, creative and fresh cuisine
Cocina del mar is outstanding! Location is stunning. Food and service were excellent!
The atmosphere was magical and the food was amazing! For anyone who is visting Cabo I highly recommend Cocina del Mar It was one of the best meals we've had in years....
Impeccable service, food and views ❤️
This place never disappoints. I have the red snapper and wife had blue prawns taste was amazing and the price point for there wines were actually really good.
Friends joined us at Diamante and we come here every year in Cabo. Great food, service an an exceptional view. We will be back again in the spring.
We had a lovely table overlooking the ocean. Edgar was a fantastic server and the entire staff was delightful. The fresh sea bass and seafood pasta were prepared exquisitely.
We will remember this special evening for a long time
A little pricey, but an amazing view, great food, and great hosts.
This is a very nice setting and the service is good. The pricing is outrageous for the serving size... and they also add a 15% service charge... which is not a tip.
I have frequented most all the upper end dining establishments in San Jose/Cabo corridor and although the setting is very nice there are many other choices in area for less $$ and are pleasant, exceptional service and a better value.
Plan on spending $150 pp before service charges & tipping- if you order an entree & one cocktail.
Very slow service and average food. Spectacular venue and ambiance.
This was the best ambiance of any restaurant ever! The beautiful cliff side dining, views of the breaking waves on the rocks and the crash of the surf was incredible. Very special and a unique experience . . . the food was very tasty, but I wish the menu was a little more varied. We had excellent scallops and shrimp and the homemade bread was a nice touch. I was very satisfied with the food and the wait staff was very good. They are very low key and try to stay out of the way so you can enjoy the view and the sounds and the beauty. If you want a romantic dinner, I cannot think of a better spot . . . anywhere . . .
A magical evening with great food and my favourite wine
The views are amazing. I felt pressured to sit, order and eat quickly. I felt rushed. The food was good but the views were outstanding.
The views... Incredible!! Service was top notch. Food was pretty good. But those views... amazing!! Would definitely go back.
Food portions were very small this year. Don't know what the change is.
What a fine dining experience! Absolutely among the top of all the fine dining restaurants that we have been to anywhere in the world!
The view, service, and food were all spectacular.
Most amazing restaurant, views as the restaurant becomes one with the sea. Service is best in Cabo, food too. Don’t miss this one.
Loved everything about this restaurant :) Best food, ambience, service, views.
This place is the best of the best ! Amazing views and fabulous service!
Lovely meal with our friends! Gorgeous setting and the food was outstanding!
Beautiful view with friendly servers! Great experience!
Wow what an amazing restaurant. An unforgettable experience. It was perfect from start to finish.
First of all, the venue is amazing. From the time you enter the property you are surrounded by impeccably manicured grounds. The setting is surely one of the most beautiful anywhere in the world. Get there early and take a walk around the property to get the full experience. Before enjoying the setting at Cocina del mar make sure to visit the smaller pool side bar and let Marcello take you through a lesson about Mezcal. Then go to larger bar at Cocina del Mar and let Giovani finish up your Tequila or Mezcal experience. The menu at the restaurant has a wide selection but don't miss the salt incrusted fish for 2. It comes out light, moist and flaky. The chef definitely knows what he is doing. Allow yourself plenty of time to have one of the best dining experiences on the planet.
