It was absolutely wonderful! The service was above and beyond, the food was spectacular. It was our anniversary and they gave a special dessert and happy anniversary written on the plate. The wait staff was so attentive, dinner was served at the same time by two waiters. I can’t say enough about the ambience the food and the service from Vela!! This is now one of our favorites when we visit Cabo! I highly recommend this restaurant!!

Very mediocre food. The bread was stale, the pasta overcooked and the sauce had no flavor. Ambiance is nice, but stay away if you are looking for a decent dinner.

The menu was limited and the price of the food was too expensive for what you got. $30 for lasagna was way too expensive and the dish was too heavy on the meat and light on the cheese. The menu should be expanded.

The food was five stars, for sure! I had a filet that was perfectly grilled, with magnificent flavors. My husband had a couple of appetizers for his dinner: the mozzarella aubergine (grilled mozzarella and eggplant); and tres bruschetta (three different types of bruschetta). He raved about both. This was our second meal there this trip as we try to work our way through the menu. I’m gluten intolerant and they’re very accommodating and cautious which I very much appreciate.

The food and service were ok but they charged me $8 USD for a bottle of water. I have never paid that much anywhere else in the world. This place caters to tourists and exploits them. I would not recommend.

Our party of six had an enjoyable dinner at Vela on a Monday evening. The restaurant has a very nice poolside setting, with tables spaced generously apart for privacy. Our servers were all quite personal and well trained. We did have some gaps in service where it looked like our waiters were doing double duty serving people at the pool and losing track of us periodically. Our salads and appetizers were all excellent. Several of us ordered a local fish dish and it was nicely prepared and presented. One of our party that ordered the lasagne was disappointed as it was nothing special. Another in our party ordered a shrimp ravioli dish and also though it was middle of the road. I thought the wine list was overpriced.

Lovely view and attentive service. Food choices varied and execution really nice. Only distraction was tables so close to pool, that every so often swim suit clad pool goers walked by and destroyed the ambiance. Portions large.
