Excellent service, food and atmosphere!
Exceptional but expensive!
We have been here before. The best!!! Food is amazing !!! Oswaldo and Marco ate a great team. Entertainment elegant. We will be back. Again .
Perfect setting just a fantastic overall experience.
Everything was excellent, beautiful setting, the price of meal was commensurate with the setting and service.
Only negative was cost of bottle of wine.
Don’t know there corkage fee’s however bring you own wine is my recommendation
We loved Don Manuel. We have been coming to Cabo for 13 years and have previously dined at the other restaurant on the property of the Pedregal Resort, El Farillon, and enjoyed it. We ate at Don Manuel for lunch several years ago but for some reason never tried it at dinner. It was delightful....a high point of our trip this year. The food was amazing, the service spectacular, the resort beautiful. There was live music (trio: keyboard, 2 violins a la Lindsey Stirling in style) that made the setting even lovelier. We had the risotto for appetizer and we both had the totoaba for entree, the Tres Leches cake for dessert. From the moment we stepped foot on the resort to the moment we exited, it was a special night. We highly recommend Don Manuel and will return again.
We visit Don Manuel's every time we vacation at Cabo. We love everything about it - the wonderful cuisine (perhaps a bit more expensive than other places, but so worth it), the impeccable service, the immaculate, beautiful décor - it's just such a pleasure to dine there.
What a wonderful restaurant. The restaurant is waterfront. We arrived 10 minutes eArly and seated in a bar area. We ordered drinks and were pleasantly surprised by music performed by a trio with keyboard and 2 violins. Our wait was enjoyable though it was more than 10 minutes as promised. Our service was attentive and all the menus were backlit to help us with our selection. I had the duck carnitas and my husband selected the tuna tartare. Both excellent.he had the special fish of the day which was striped bass with onions, chipotle mayonnaise, radish and I savored the souls vide suckling pig. Both were excellent. We will definitely make this a must do spot when we come to Cabo.
Great ambiance ... food was good. Service was great. Property was GORGEOUS.
Great food, service and outdoor location and views. Very impressed. Worth the price considering all the positive attributes.
Amazing service and food! Maybe our top 5 dining experiences ever. We brought the kids and they loved it and had fun watching the live show. Not a cheap dinner but we’ll wortg it for a special night out.
overall wonderful experience. Atmosphere and service were 5 star in my book
At $240 for breakfast for four people it's way overpriced. Only two of us had the $40 brunch and the other two a $20 meal. If I recommended this place, I would remind the friend it's a $60 breakfast. Yikes!
We went here for Christmas Eve with our family. It is a spectacular place to stay (no swimmable beach, FYI) and eat. The service was exceptional, the food fantastic, the desserts gorgeous and they accommodated my limited diet graciously and deliciously. Class A place to dine.
AMAZING! We went here our first night in Cabo and it was a great start to our vacation. Every staff member at the resort was friendly and helpful. One of them actually walked us to the restaurant instead of just pointing the way. The food was fantastic! This was hands down one of the best meals and overall experiences. The prices were very reasonable for the quality and similar to any fine dining restaurant in the US. My only criticism is regarding the wine list. It was an excellent list, but the prices were outrageous. They were two to three times higher than in the US. I think the least expensive wine on the list was $70. Had the cost of the wine been more appropriate, it would have been perfect. We will definitely be back.
Both the service and food at Don Manuel’s were impeccable, but it is very expensive.
great setting and wonderful food. The braised lamb was fabulous. Well wroth the stop. 18% included but not advertized
Awesome service and great food!
Absolutely fantastic from the service to ambience and of course the food!!
absolutely outstanding. The service was beyond perfect from greeting the car and showing us to the restaurant, everyone was really nice.
The music violins playing contemporary songs very special.
Don Manuel's is located in the Pedregal resort located on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas. A tunnel was bored through the side of a mountain, that you drive (or walk) through, to access the resort. Valet parking and you are personally greeted by name and escorted down to Don Manuel's. The restaurant is truly beautiful, romantic and the service was attentive but not intrusive. We had the seafood cerviche, special
salad, arroz seafood entree and sea bass. The server was very conscientious about asking about food allergies and actually brought gluten free bread to the table. All of the food was impeccably prepared and not overly salted which we are hyper sensitive to. Perfect place for any special occasion. The drink pictured is a Paloma. Highly recommend it!
Stunning restaurant in gorgeous resort. Fairly priced for high quality food. Service is almost too much but if you don't mind being pampered I loved every minute of it. It's quiet and reserved very pleasant music does not detract. Please no backwards baseball caps this is a classy place treat it with respect!
Literally one of the best dining experiences in Cabo. Pricier than other options in the area but worth every penny as this spot is on par with some of NYC's finest. Amazing staff, phenomenal views and great live entertainment. The food was to die for and the desserts, I can't even. Yum.
Excellent spot in the Pedregal Resort, but the worst value. Food is ridiculously expensive and not that good.
We enjoyed our dinner, the food was amazing and not too spicy.
We had the risotto appetizer and the pork empanadas... they were both amazing.
My husband had a pork chop for dinner and love it.
I had a seafood bowl and it was good, not my favorite, but I think it was a preference issue, not good quality.
We enjoyed the atmosphere with the outside seating and live music. We will go back!
Don Manuels offers Impeccable service and amazing views. The waiters and waitresses couldn't of been more gracious and welcoming. Expect High quality and well thought out food. Favorite dish was the poblano risotto and a pork specialty which was slow cooked in banana leaf and super tender. The Octupus was the only dish we didn't love All other items were yummy and I would highly recommend this spot for a special dinner. I loved the decor , from the breathtaking scenery to the special lighting and the authentic Mexican dishes. All made for a very enjoyable evening.
The food and service was outstanding. My son had the veal enchiladas in mole sauce, and he said it was the best mole sauce he's ever eaten. I recommend the duck carnitas appetizer. The view of the Pacific Ocean is breath taking, and you can hear the crashing of the waves. We celebrated our son's 18th birthday so his dessert (churros) was complimentary. I would highly recommend Don Manuel for a special occasion.
We have dined at Don Manuel's several times. Food is excellent, and so is the service (from the hostess to the wait staff to the bar waiters to the floor manager). And the setting is both beautiful and peaceful. Don Manuel is definitely on our short list of best Cabo restaurants.
Very special birthday dinner with my daughter. The live music and food both were spectacular. We have been before and it has not lost a step. Luxury dinner and an incredible view.
A very memorable dinner in a beautiful setting at a fabulous resort. Service was excellent, as was the food and ambience. An additional treat was the wonderful music by an excellent 4 piece guitar group. Expensive but not over the top, and I would highly recommend Don Manuels!
Four of us went for dinner. The men loved their entrees but my friend and I each ordered the tuna. Neither of us ate it because it had a strong fishy flavor. We also ordered the tuna tartare to split as an appetizer and it was delicious. The server noticed we didn't eat our tuna so the manager and chef each came out to apologize. Of course they took it off the check. Very classy way to handle an unfortunate situation.
Always fabulous! The cuisine is creative with a Mexican flair, always delicious and beautifully presented. Service is attentive without being intrusive and the view, particularly when you can sit on the patio is beautiful.
This place is fabulous ! I have only had lunch here but it is always outstanding ! Service is great and attention to detail is unsurpassed. The tuna civiche was the best I have ever had!
Nice menu. We prepared and presented. A+ Service.
dinner was so good we're going back tonight
Juan provided exceptional service!! This may have been one of the best dining experiences of our lives. Incredible food!!
Group of six friends, drinks first at champagne bar on the rocks, then an amazing dinner. American expensive but a beautiful experience. Highly recommend while in Cabo.
My wife and I have been coming to Cabo for 20 years and this is our "go to" spot for the best food and ambiance in Cabo. Yes, the sister restaurant El Fallaron has the incredible views, but the better menu is at Don Manuel's. The appetizers were great, duck carnitas and risotto and we both ordered the lamb shank as an entrée, A+ on that. Service was excellent as always. My ONLY complaint is that one gets jammed up on corkage (Cabo restaurants all allow you to bring your own wine) as this Resort adds $40 US for that. Otherwise, it's the best we have had and continue to have in Cabo.
A wonderful restaurant with a beautiful view. The sound of the waves crashing was breathtaking and the food was very good and reasonably priced.
We have been to Cabo San Lucas twice -- both times, the best meal was at Don Manuel's. What an exceptional restaurant. Kind, thoughtful service (everyone seemed genuinely excited about the food, and that matters), a beautiful setting, and even single dish prepared to perfection. Between the two of us, we had their salad with organic vegetables (easily the best salad we've had in a restaurant in the past year), the duck carnitas, the veal mole enchiladas, and the "catch of the day" (a striped bass). Perfect. There's no other word. For dessert, the churros are amazing. This is a gem in Cabo San Lucas, and we can't wait to return again.
