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.

The Manta at The Cape was recommended to us by a friend and it did not disappoint it far exceeded our expectations!!! Can't wait to go back when we return in November!!! We celebrated our Anniversary and I had forgotten that I mentioned it in my reservation and they surprised us with desert and complimentary champagne!!! The service was impeccable!!! The food was amazing and the ambiance was beyond gorgeous!!!

Super high-end place. The whole hotel is a breath taking Designed. Highly recommend if you like to try new food and experience. The mushroom tamale was out of this world and I never eat tamale 😳. The sea bass taccos was insane. In general the whole ambiance the wood and the lighting was just perfectly designed for making you feel spacial. Must go is you are in Cabo’s.

Terrible experience-overpriced loud restaurant with poor, inattentive service. Do not recommend. Go to El Farallon instead at The Resort at Pedregal for a far better high end experience.

We visit Cabo every spring and look for new places to try. While the views at Manta are spectacular, the food was good (not great) but nowhere near the price we paid. Portions are EXTREMELY disproportionate to the price. There are better options with the same views.

Very disappointing and we'd be hard pressed to return.
