About El Farallon - The Resort at Pedregal

Tucked into the cliffs of The Resort at Pedregal and stocked daily with bounty from local fishermen, El Farallon is the most sought after dinner location in Los Cabos. Meaning “a rock that comes out of the ocean”, El Farallon has become a hallmark of exquisite dining at our luxury resort. Situated overlooking The Pacific Ocean, where Chef Gustavo Pinet sets only the best selection of local catch on mounds of shaved ice. Our fish experts will guide your selection with an old-fashioned scale that weights each choice.
Carved out of the rock appears The Champagne Terrace with a selection of over 15 different champagnes ranging from Blanc de Blancs to Rose to Vintage Champagnes. All you and your guests need to do is decide how many and what measure of each one you want. Eduardo Contreras, our Wine Director, and his team will be able to guide you through the process as well as help you learn about the champagne with a selection of imported cheeses and artisan salts.

 (Chicago)·Dined on February 6, 2018

We enjoyed the service and the staff. The champagne bar was an elegant touch, however the prices were exorbitant. There was not a single 6oz glass option for under $35 US. Looking at the fish and selling our dinner options was also a nice touch, however the food was mediocre and heavy, including the appetizers. We were underwhelmed by the flavor combinations. I ordered lobster which was well-prepared, however my sides of asparagus and tomato were nothing special. We had heard wonderful reviews of this restaurant and were very disappointed.

 (Raleigh)·Dined on February 6, 2018

This restaurant lived up to the hype. I agree that it was great to make reservation early enough to see the sunset (ours was at 5:45, as it was February). Allow yourself time to be escorted in, offered the high-end champagne by the glass options, and settling in to the atmosphere before being escorted to your seat. It has been said lots before, but no matter how hungry you are, be sure to save room for the main course. It is a LOT of food so maybe only take a bite or two of the bread and the soup. I had the fresh parrot fish and my husband had the snapper and both were perfectly grilled and delicious. As for sides, I agree with other reviewers that the asparagus are far too big and tough and should be avoided. Our server, Claudio, was not only professional and knowledgeable, but showed a deep interest and understanding in the wine offerings and even brought out a couple of reds for a blind tasting. It was a top notch experience all-around. As for the "Bounty of the Bay"/Taste of Ensenada chef's tasting, I really don't think that's necessary unless you really want to try every single fish and assume there is no way one could eat all of the offerings.

The setting, service, dinner and general ambiance were all amazing. It is not cheap, but it is reasonably priced for this high level of service and fabulous food. It is a good value and all in our party were thrilled. We would love to dine here again.

It is a very special place and all aspects of the meal and service were first class.

You won't find many more amazing views than at this restaurant. I've been lucky to eat at some amazing places but no place has had a better view. As to the food, it's pricey. I would call it very good to great. You order in front if a chalk menu with a waiter showing you the catches they are offering that day. Then the meal comes with two appetizers, your meal and dessert. The soup appetizer is incredibly delicious. Then you get there bowls of ceviche (excellent), a salad (delicious) and calendar (meh). Your meal then comes with two sides. I had the parrot fish which was cooked well, but a little bland. I think this was mostly my fault. I'd never had it before and is a very white and bland fish. My girlfriend had blue fin tuna which was very good. The mac and cheese may be the best I've ever had.

The dessert then came which was also good. Total bill with 4 drinks and tip was around $250. I got an expensive tequila so that's part of it. I'd definitely recommend going, and I'd like to go again. Staff was very friendly but everyone in Mexico is!

This was our sixth visit to the restaurant and unfortunately we were not as wowed as usual. Our main dish was ok but the accompanying sides were disappointing. We enjoyed the appetizers but after the soup and appetizers we did not have room to really enjoy the entrees. Dessert was unremarkable. Of course the setting was beautiful and the service also excellent.
If you have not been you should definitely see the setting but next time we may eat at the other hotel restaurant instead of Farallon.

First the very positives:

Fabulous location and scenery. Driving through their rock carved tunnel was impressive. The waterfront seating a definite plus. The food was excellent and the service impeccable.

The negatives:

We made all efforts to arrive for our 5:30 "Sunset Experience" reservation and were there with time to spare. After confirming our reservation we were encouraged to visit the Champaign Bar and waiting area. After two very expensive flukes of champaign and waiting for another 20 minutes and missing the sunset, we were called. Not to our table but to another glass display counter featuring various selections of seafood and only two steak choices. There was also a chalkboard with a selection of sides to accompnay you main selection.

After another 5 to 10 minutes we were called and escorted to our table with perfect views of the ocean. We realized they sat us by the kitchen. Lot's of chatter and constant traffic. I would also like to mention that the very light wicker chairs on rough cobblestone were not very safe. The lady behind us fell to the ground as she attempted to leave her seat! Luckily, she was not hurt but very embarrassed. There was an excellent band playing but we could not see them due to our seating location. Finally, when I made the reservation I had mentioned this was a "Special Night " for us. We were told happy anniversary as we entered by the hostess and server. However, I expect an anniversary dessert ( I would have gladly pay for to see my wife smile).)

*Fabulous location, service, and good food.
