One of the places we always make sure to go to when we are in Cabo! It didn’t disappoint this time either! Brought a new group of friends with us this time, and they are as in love with this restaurant as we are!!

Wonderful food, decor, service and view. This may be our most favorite restaurant anywhere! Be sure to request seating on the patio. They also offer seating on the beach, but we prefer the patio. What a great place!

We went twice in three weeks, always one of our favorites. First visit, attacked by flies and second visit, service was horrible. I was truly disappointed.

We had been to this restaurant last year and decided to go back again. Unfortunely the service was not very good and they messed up our order three times before they got it right. They also brought different margaritas than we ordered and they tasted watered down! Then I at the end of the evening I was given someone else’s bill for $350 and at first the waiter tried to tell me the bill was right. The food was descent and the view was spectacular but unfortunely the service ruined our evening and we won’t ever go back again.

Exquisite anniversary dinner. We had the Ahi ceviche, Shrimp Diabla, the chefs choice which was Sea Bass and a caramel flan. Each item was great. The setting on Medano beach overlooking Lands End was beautiful. From the moment you enter the lobby of the Hacienda Beach club and proceed down the stairs to the cantina you get an idea that this is a special place. My only regret is that we've been in Cabo for two weeks and we've just discovered this place now! Thank you Francisco for a memorable night!

Another great dinner at Hacienda. Excellent presentation, service and great food. We always eat a Hacienda when in Cabo and consider it a special opportunity. A fabulous location and wonderful decor.

This is the first time in many years, I have been extremely disappointed. When we received our dinner, no exaggeration, we were attacked by 50+ flies! Waiters came with hand fans and finally moved us in doors. We woofed down a $200 plus meal in a few minutes to avoid the flies. The apology just a random remark, nothing we can do! Not acceptable and still left a 20% tip. No compensation offered, extremely disappointing.

We had an outstanding time recently at Hacienda Cocina and Cantina. From the moment we arrived at the gate to our leaving everyone there was so friendly and gracious ....it was a real pleasure .
The entire staff was superb and constantly smiling and polite .
The food was excellent and the setting phenomenal. Our waiter gave us very good explanations of all the entrees and specials as well as helpful recommendations . Delicious steak special ! And shrimp entree was also very good !
The whole experience was immensely enjoyable !!

This was recommended by a random stranger in a hotel pool. Turned out to be the best food and dinning experience ever. Travel warnings to the area by the US media kept crowds down but the Cabo area is safer than Seattle. This whole trip was amazing We are from Washington state and Cabo is safe.

Our favorite dining experience in Cabo. We came as a group of 8 friends to celebrate 3 birthdays and an anniversary and this evening was the ultimate in dining ambiance! Right on the waterfront next to an infinity pool with delicious( but pricey) food and good service. Beautiful evening and great place for photos.

Delicious food and beautiful setting. Loved the ahi tacos served in jicama taco shells and the mixed grilled seafood. We filled up on "starters" and never ordered from main entree because the portions were so big, even the simple mixed green salad was large portion. Highly attentive service and very friendly. Worth a visit!

Excellent views of the coast. The food was authentic with a great selection of Mexican wines. Service was on point and every one we interacted with greeted us directly and ensured we had everything we needed. Highly recommend this place right around sunset for a romantic dinner.

Food and service was great. My only complaint is that we tried to book an 8 pm dinner reservation but we were told they only had 4 or 5 pm available. We took the latter time but as the evening wore on we noticed that the place was still almost empty. We could have just stopped by without the reservation at our preferred later time. I felt as if they were saving the dining spots for their own preferred guests. They view was magnificent, though. Worth our time.
