Bar Esquina has been Los Cabos’ go-to for a grown-up good time, offering exceptional food, killer cocktails, an extensive wine list, and a vibrant atmosphere that attracts locals and visitors from across Baja Sur. Whether guests gather at our social 17-seat marble bar or assemble around a table on our terrace, Esquina is a place where new friends and special memories are made. Nightly entertainment includes live music, seven evenings a week, and Chef Andres Bracamontes’ open kitchen. Chef Andres’ carefully crafted menu, much-loved by Esquina’s many regulars, is influenced by the Mediterranean, California, and his home state of Guadalajara — and emphasizes good food, shared with good friends. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Esquina evolves throughout the day, but it’s in the evening that it really comes alive. At Esquina, every night is a celebration.

Food was good but both the entrees the tuna and chicken had too much salt. Service was a bit spotty

Probably one of the best restaurants in Cabo. Don’t Easter your time with the other restaurants the hotel staff suggest. So far this week, Sur Brach House & Bar Esquina at the Bahia Hotel have been the only restaurants really worth going to

The ambiance was great and the food was pretty good but after a couple of big parties came in our waiter completely ignored us. I think they were understaffed to handle the large parties. Probably wouldn't go there again.

We were not impressed with the wine prices. They were really high for what you received. We ordered two pizzas, the mushroom and the pesto with brocollini, garnished with apple slices. We questioned the server regarding the combination of flavors on the last pizza and he said it was great. We both thought it was a horrible combination. The whole pizza was covered with apples, not really a garnish at all. The pesto and brocollini tasted burned and quite awful. The mushroom pizza was horrible as well. It was loaded with truffle oil, sickeningly so. We had lots of leftovers and just left them there. We ended up spending around 1800 pesos for the worst Valentines Day in 50 years together. We had dat around the bar a few days earlier for drinks and snacks and thought the prices and the food was great.

We have been eating here since you opened. I have recommended your restaurant to many people but never again. Our server and his service was terrible, he was absent, messed up orders and generally didn’t seem to care. We will not be back for a longtime and either will our guests. Where’s ownership?

I love Bar Esquina but I was warned about the terrible customer service and they were right. The wait staff were not engaged and we had to flag down other waiters for service. Took an hour to place our dinner order. The gnocchi came out cold for 3 people and the desserts were inedible. Not the wonderful experience I've told people about.

We got there at 5:00 pm so no one was there yet. When we arrived, the wait staff was having a team meeting so we were expecting greatness. There were 6 adults and 2 babies. We ordered apps and drinks and we didn’t see our waiter after that. Drinks and apps were served and after 30 min of sitting there, not being acknowledged or even looked at, we stood up and left. We didn’t even order dinner because it wasn’t an option for us. It was a major disappointment. We used to love this restaurant and unfortunately we will not be going back.

We ate there twice in a week . We had a reservation for 2 .
Each time I requested a different table , it seemed to be a problem for the hostess both times regardless of me having a reservation she wanted to seat us at tables that were shoved into odd spaces.
As for the food the pizzas are a great choice all very good. Salads are generous but lack in flavor dressings our pretty bland. I had the lobster gnocchi. The sauce was a little bland and the portion was small , The chef placed a lobster tail on too the gnocchi for plating but the very little amount of lobster I had surely didn’t come from the size tail in my bowl . Wine list is great and as well as the cocktails. The decor is beautiful but the food needs some improvement . They have a coffee bar that we came too each morning. The coffees are very good and rich in flavor. The pastries are excellent but be ware they are to be baked daily and one morning I had a muffin that seemed as if it were from the day before.
I requested another for lack of freshness and again it took a discussion just as the table requested by the hostess. Any issue and it requires more than necessary. None the less they gave me another muffin and it was clearly fresh and delicious.

We ordered a salad that was good and a pizza to share. The pizza was ok but not as good as we remembered. The band they had playing was not memorable. Prices are high for Cabo and it’s more acceptable when the entertainment is better. Much better food and pricing at other restaurants.

I did not have a warm and fuzzy experience like I thought I would. The hostess was very unfriendly and the service was ok. If you are on a date and do not want to have a lot of engagement with your server and you want the “snobby scene” experience then bar Esquina is your place...

Food was very good for Cabo and service outstanding. Host did their best to get us seated quickly as it was very crowded when we arrived. Lots of people trying to get tables without bookings. Very good music which was a little loud as we were seated close to musicians but this did not detract from an awesome evening. This was our forth visit and keeps getting better

Food and atmosphere always amazing. The service was a little slower than normal, would have appreciated a check in on drinks/cocktails instead of having to flag down the server. Saturday nights are always busy though, so expectations were lower due to how busy the restaurant and bar were.

We had a confirmed reservation and confirmed again by e mail request. We arrived early by 10 minutes visited the shift manager and told us we would have to wait for seat! We finally after an hour and 20 minutes got a table! Longest wait ever for confirmed reservation dinner ever!
Really ruined out dinner out with family and friends!

Will not return after booking here over 6 times previously!

This is one of our annual dinners when we come to Cabo. It has never disappointed us an tonight was no different. We took our sister-in-law to Bar Esquina for her birthday and had fabulous cocktails, wine and dinner. The catch of the day was Parrot fish and was wonderful, 15 on a scale of 1-10!! Our daughter had the spicy shrimp with coconut risotto. The service was attentive but not intrusive, friendly and helpful. It was a special night and made for a memorable evening that the four of us will remember for a long time!!

Very nice ambiance, but the live entertainment featuring a flute was mediocre and irritating. Lead vocalist had a raspy voice that was grating. Pizza and short rib entree were excellent and cocktails/wine were quite nice. Truffles at the end of the meal were a nice surprise. Service was competent but not as good as in previous visits
