Mexican
The Hotel San Cristóbal's Restaurant offers a fusion of classic Mexican cuisine with a Mediterranean,
inspired by the diversity and culinary abundance of Baja California. By exploring All Saints and
surrounding communities, you can see fishermen arriving at the beach in their pangas with their daily
fishing, smelling fragrant basil in the night air, and observing whole truckloads of strawberries, herbs, and
green beans from fields not far from the beach . The menu will focus on this incredible local abundance,
variations of traditional Mexican dishes, and other fresh and simply prepared foods.
The wine programme will focus on winemakers who cultivate sustainably, with emphasis on organic and
biodynamic wines. The selection will cover Western Europe and the United States and include some of
Mexico's exceptional wines. The cocktail menu will include artisanal mezcals, tequilas and classic
cocktails from warm climates

Beautiful property for lunch! Sadly they will not seat you outside area of restaurant with umbrellas ! We had a nice lunch and vino in the lounge area of restaurant that looked onto the pool area. This area was did not have proper tables doe dinning but low cocktail tables. Very nice and much better then the inside resturant for lunch. Inside is not very sexy in daytime! But we loved it and will go
Back. The service was great!!! Good value too.

The food was delicious and our server Jonathan was amazing! All his suggestions where spot on. We came here for a dinner on our honeymoon and they brought us out champagne and had great conversations with the staff. Of course there were areas we could not go because it was for the hotel guest only, and we understood that, it makes sense! We definitely will come back here and hopefully one day stay here too!

Nos dieron una mesa a dentro, aunque a fuera hubo lugar.
No hubo aire, fue muy pesado.
Pedimos un poco de pan para cambiar de gusto para probar el vino, parecio que nos olvidaron
Por un precio tan alto, el servicio tiene que estar perfecto, que no fue el caso, hubo varios errores.
Una lastima que no se puede apreciar el atardecer desde el restaurante, especialmente por un lugar tan espectacular

We highly recommend coming here for dinner. There’s a perfect view and everything we tried was beautifully made and presented. I highly recommend their ceviche, beef tartare, beet and tomato salad as well as the short rib to share. We also enjoyed the churros to end the amazing meal! They also recommended beautiful white and red wines to pair with our dishes. 100/100 will definitely make my way back to Cabo to come back to this restaurant.

We stopped in for lunch on our drive from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos. The property is an absolutely stunning new boutique hotel on the ocean, about 2 miles down an unpaved road. We ate outside amongst the lovely desert landscaping on a lovely patio. The food was absolutely outstanding and the service was very sweet and accommodating.

I can't say enough about my multiple dining experiences at Benno. They knock it out of the park every time IN ALL CATEGORIES. The food is amazing, I love the atmosphere and the fireplaces, but more importantly, the staff provides top-notch service and take pride in what they do and it shows. Kind, sweet, happy and generous....each meal made me feel like the only person in the restaurant. Edna, in particular, really stood out. Benno is really lucky to have her. She served us for dinner one night and knocked our socks off with her attention to detail and true pride in her craft.

We had two meals at Benno ... an evening dinner and breakfast. The breakfast was superb and included an omelette and chilaquiles. The chilaquiles incorporated two eggs, chicken and both red and green sauce. One of the best ever.

Dinner, on the other hand, was extremely disappointing. A ribeye was ordered. By volume, only about one third of it was edible ... unless you like fat and gristle. The sole chicken offering was equally poor. Both over done and consisting of mostly wing and leg bones. Both of us left the table still hungry.

A fantastic find! This place was near empty and I was skeptical at first. However, the food and service was fantastic. We ate at Los Tamarindos and Nobu during our trip to Cabo and this restaurant is on par, if not better. We also witnessed a beautiful sunset over the ocean during our meal. A hidden gem that is sure to be discovered.

It was my bday. I called to make a reservation and make a special request and they were not interested on taking my reservation through the phone and sent me to Open Table. Fine. They should’ve warned me about not having a full menu. It was almost like a poolside menu, not ok. I’ve been so many times to the hotel and restaurant (even during the pandemic) and always felt welcome and this time was just” blah”. It was my second time celebrating my bday there but I felt they there was no sparkle at all. I got to the hotel 15 min before my reservation right on sunset time and they didn’t let me have a drink watching the sunset, they said it’s only for guests (but literally there were 0 people there). So we got to our table and they announced that they had only this short kinda poolside version of the menu. I’m saying all this because I think it’s a special place, otherwise I really wouldn’t waste my time! Please don’t lose it!
