First, the food and it’s presentation were excellent. But the restaurant cannot decide what it wants to be... fine dining or a sports bar. We got there at 6:30 pm and there were 6 TVs with football on. We we were told sports from 12 to 6. But game still not over. Very loud. Then changed over to Frank Sinatra. (Little too loud, but better than sports). Then there was a worker mopping the floors around us with ammonia. Only 2 other tables with people and we waited forever for each course. Were told extenuating circumstances caused the delay in service (kitchen is taking care of restaurant and hotel and two cooks did not show up from their New Year’s Eve partying). Were asked to provide comments if which we told them all of the above. Again, food was fabulous, but doubt we would ever go back.

Off season in Cabo so Aleta was pretty empty. We sat at the railing at a high top table with a view of the Sea of Cortez. Tomas was our waiter and he was attentive but would guess he was fairly new. Moderate prices. Between the 3 of us we had the beef/octopus carpaccio (very good), seafood chowder(way too thick, rich and creamy and not much seafood and the description did not allude to this preparation), seafood risotto (liked), Caesar salad (liked) and shrimp entree (nice size shrimp). All the food was “okay” but Aleta would not be a restaurant we would return to. No particular ambiance.

Be aware (which I was not) that one Sunday per month there is a live band just in front at Cachet Beach Club. It was so loud we had to scream at each other across the table to be able to talk.

The Caesar Salad was good and a different presentation which I liked. However we ordered the catch of the day which was snapper. Ordered it grilled. Unfortunately I think they cooked it at same time as they made salad. The fish was dried out and cold. So my friend and I both could not eat it and requested it be sent back. A few minutes later the hostess/manager came back to the table and said they tried it in the kitchen and the chef said it was okay. After some tense few minutes and several exchanges in my vest Spanglish they finally agreed to grill us 2 new pieces of fish. It took a very very long time to get the 2nd fishes. My friend’s husband was completely finished eating his brisket. I suggested that it would appropriate for them to give is a discount since the dish was prepared incorrectly and it took soooo long to get it right. That idea was met with lots of flailing arms and angry words from the hostess/manager. So we paid the full amount of the bill and left a moderate (15%) tip.

Would probably return for drinks overlooking the beach as it is a nice setting and they have valet parking which was nice. Don’t think I would come for dinner again. Too many other nice restaurants in Cabo to have cold, over grilled fish!

The food, view and service were all 5 stars! I have a gluten allergy so most menus only offer a few selections. The team at Aleta we’re all knowledgeable and accommodating, even modifying the dishes and drinks of my choice to suit my dietary needs. If you are in Cabo and want a range of gluten free options with a beautiful atmosphere and great service you have to go to Aleta!

We were staying at Casa Dorada and this restaurant was across the street in the Cachet Beach Club. Amazing meal. Each dish was distinctly flavored. Efren, our waiter was exceptional. Every suggestion he made we loved. And not too pricey. Quiet, serene views, beautiful space.

A great restaurant. Good food, service & value. The red snapper we both ordered was absolutely superb. We asked it be cooked in lemon & butter- and we were accommodated in this request.

The only negative regarding food & beverages was the espresso & coffee. Apparently, not enough coffee was used in brewing both!

The other negative was the noise level (disguised as music!!??)! This was most annoying.

As we departed, we discovered they had valet parking which would have been nice to know before we parked at the hotel to which the restaurant is affiliated; same, which was satisfactory but not as convenient as using the restaurants valet parking.

Fabulous seafood place with amazing view. Service was incredible. We had the place to ourselves. Margaritas were delish! We got to pick our own fish out at the seafood window and how we wanted it cooked - grilled with butter and lovely veggies. It was Amazing and plentiful. Well priced and amazing service.

Excellent food and service. The shrimp cocktail is the most delicious we've ever tasted! Restaurant is in a great setting -- overlooking ocean. Ship lights are fun to view in the evening. The red snapper special was excellent breaded and fried. Wish they had not run out of lobster (only one of us could order), but it was enjoyed.

One of our most favorite dinners of our vacation. We may even come back here again before we leave! Amazing food, great service, and amazing ambience/views right by the beach at Cachet. Thank you for a wonderful night!

We were very well taken care as the service for our table of four was very attentive. All four of us enjoyed the fresh catch of the day, sea bass. The entree was well presented and delicious. We returned again the next day for
lunch and the grilled tina sandwich was outstanding. Beautiful view of the ocran and beach.

The lunch was better then dinner and do not recommend the beef ! It was a poor quality tough and flavorless.
It was so bad we returned it because it was 29.00 usd and it was unacceptable. The manager and owner was not happy and gave us s hard time.

We celebrated our son's birthday while vacationing in Cabo. Our waiter, Abraham, served him a chocolate cake with a side of mint ice cream. The food and service was outstanding. The live band was very good . They sang a variety of cover songs from the Beatles to Pearl Jam. I would certainly come back!
