By Renowned Mexican Chef, Enrique Olvera, Manta is the culinary centerpiece of The Cape, A Thompson Hotel. With an intriguing double meaning, the manta ray symbolizes the kitchen"s focus on seafood, while manta, the Spanish word for blanket, conveys the chef's emphasis on comfort. Acknowledge by the New York Times for his "way of confirming and subverting expectations of Mexican food at the same time," Olvera has drawn inspiration from the izakaya tradition to introduce a pan-Pacific concept of Mexican cuisine. The intimate, richly textured space features a dramatic exhibition kitchen and a curated beverage menu focused on mezcals, tequilas and sakes.

    This is one of the best restaurants I have been to. Chef Enrique Olvera, one of the most influential Mexican Chefs, reimagined Mexican food. As a mexican, I was pleased to rediscover the food I grew up with, through his team's vision. Service was excellent, and on par with some of the best fine dining places in Europe. In fact, this is the first place I have insisted on adding extra gratuity (as they actually have an automatic service charge)

    We celebrated my birthday at Manta. My boyfriend and I wanted an intimate experience with good food and craft cocktails and we got all that at Manta. The staff were all very attentive from the moment we checked in. A special shout out to Leonel and Esau for taking such good care of us. The chef’s tasting menu was excellent and we highly recommend. Everything we had was delicious. The views were breathtaking and Leonel escorted us outside during sunset to take some pictures to capture the occasion.

    Excellent spot for dinner and view in Cabo. Highly recommend the tasting menu. So much food and it was all amazing. Only downside was that it took 2 1/2 hours. Service started to slow and the table two down from us ordered a hot rock towards the end and we were inundated with smoke from the cooking meats. Not an ideal way to end the evening.

    Unbelievable fare at a reasonable price. Service was top notch and sitting outside with the ocean right there was priceless. Probably top 3 restaurant in Cabo. Only issue was the wine list and the wine pairing which were astronomical price wise. Great job staff.

    My partner and I’s experience at Manta was absolutely wonderful. The restaurants ambiance, the sunset over dinner, and the sounds of waves crashing truly added to the experience. However, what really topped the notch was the service. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left our waiter truly elevated this special moment for us. We did the 5-course meal and the attention to detail and flavor hit the nail on the mark.

    The atmosphere at Manta was amazing, dim lights, sultry music and the ocean view was amazing. We took several photos over dinner as the sun set in the background. The food was exceptional - I would highly recommend the tasting menu to anyone. Each plate was so good, it was hard to choose a favorite. Overall 10/10 would recommend, fantastic food, experience and an amazing evening

    One star for the beautiful space, one for our excellent waiter, but unfortunately it stopped there, mostly because of multiple blunders with the food. Bland crudo, overly sweet salad, dry fish, and most of all grey over cooked dry age steak. For the price you are paying we expected more, didn’t feel like the place lived up to what this chef is known to do. Also it was our anniversary dinner which was written in the check in notes, yet it was never mentioned once during our meal…

    I was hoping for a special experience and booked an intimate dinner for my husband and I to celebrate my birthday. It was everything I hoped for and more! Wonderful food, great service and exquisite company! From being forced to spend just as much for a mediocre beach meal the 5 course tasting menu was just glorious. If you wish for a magnificent time, book yourself a table right now!

    We did the 5 course tasting menu and it was phenomenal! We did ask about the wine pairing options and that was a bit too rich for our blood and instead opted for a nice bottle of wine instead. Oliver the sommelier was great and recommended a very nice Sancerre which worked out perfectly. Lionel our waiter was also very good. There were plenty of staff available to make sure we had filled glasses and cleared away dishes very promptly. The tasting menu was a great way to sample the menu and we will definitely be back again.

    The chef's selection prix fixe was excellent, arrive hungry, its quite a bit of food. On this particular evening the selection was 6 courses: the tuna sashimi, watermelon salad, a single fish taco, grilled Chilean sea bass, yuzu shorbet, and their popular tres leches cake. Service and presentation was excellent - all in it ran around $135 USD including tax and 15% service charge. I would also recommend sitting outside about 45 minutes before sunset to enjoy the ambiance as twilight sets in. Dinner was served over the course of two hours so I had plenty of time to enjoy the view.

    We celebrated our 30th anniversary dinner at Manta and they knocked it out of the park. From Chef Abizael greeting us at the table and cooking an inventive, balanced 5 double course meal (really 10 courses) using Mexican, Peruvian and Japanese influences, to the impeccable and attentive service including a timely wine service. I am a foodie, and this the Best we have had in Cabo.
