    Spanish octopus was tender, service was amazing and attentive. Ambience is ideal as it’s right at the pool side and floating lanterns + blue lit pool offer something that’s visually stunning. I declined dessert and they gave me a house-made truffle. Elegantly served and perfect ending.

    Food and service top notch. Staff very pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating. My only complaint was the loud music coming from another area of the resort. It overpowered the nice dining music at the restaurant and greatly hurt the fine ding ambiance.

    While vacationing in Cabo, we wanted to experience some nearby nice restaurants and came across Vela. The food and ambiance were amazing as much as our server Gregorio. He was so attentive, made excellent recommendation about the food and the wine selection. He chose a Mexican red blend wine that was perfect with the meals. The warm oyster appetizer was delicious as was the bruschetta. The pastas were flavorful. The tiramisu was none like I’ve had and scrumptious. You will not be disappointed!

    We have a “date night” once a week, and this was definitely romantic. Service & food were outstanding! We especially loved the complimentary, house made limoncello & truffle that arrived after our meal. Wine prices are high, as they are all over Cabo, but the Chianti we had was very good. We had the bruschetta, arugula salad with citrus vinaigrette, & the Shrimp ravioli - all were worthy of repeating, we will definitely return.

    The carpaccio was excellent, my oasis bucco was good but not great. My dining companions had the warm oysters and said they were very small and could not be tasted they the toppings. She then had the mushroom pasta, which was excellent. The other companion had a beautiful arugula salad and lasagna. The lasagna was perfectly spiced. Our server was a bit frantic in his delivery, perhaps he was too busy. And the piped music was too loud …but the speaker was directly overhead.

    Food and presentation was very high quality. Prices quite reasonable for this level of dining (unlike the other restaurant at this property). Service was excellent, attentive, and amiable. Cocktails well-crafted and interesting. Scallops appetizer was yummy, and their pastas are hand-made with well-executed sauces. Didn't try the protein offerings, but the menu looks very appealing there as well. Wine offerings and pairings spot on. We don't usually do desserts, but I'm glad we had the chocolate sphere, which is a death-by-chocolate sort of experience! A little Limoncello and chocolate/cassis-covered cherries topped it all off. Can't wait to go back. One note: the Hilton's unnecessary checking of their New Years Eve sound system on the beach below should be kept to a minimum. A lot of unnecessary off-and-on that would be better done before interfering dining hours/live music. After a while, it seemed like they were just goofing around, and it was pretty horrible. I'm in the music industry and I can tell they were having a little too much fun with their big toy.

    Wow what an amazing dinner at Vela! The setting was just gorgeous, the service team we had was outstanding the food was off the charts! We are a family of four adults and started with 3 appetizers (Charcuterie board, Grilled Octopus and Bruschetta)….everything was delicious and the charcuterie was spectacular and large! We all had different pastas / risottos for dinner - the Grilled Shrimp Scampi with risotto was fantastic as was the carbonara and porcini risotto. Alfonso and his team did a great job pacing the food, always attentive to our needs and even walked us out of the hotel to side parking lot so we didn’t get lost. Will definitely go again!

    Delightful setting adjacent to resort pools and landscaping yet quiet and intimate. Come during sunset for spectacular views. The arugula salad was exceptionally fresh, well adorned, and presented in a ring. Delicious. Homemade pasta did not disappoint; fresh, Al dente! Desert cheesecake described more beautifully than the flavor or eating experience.

They served us the most delicious white chocolate passion fruit truffles! Everything was fantastic! Oh and they provided me gluten free bread to enjoy their house made sage infused olive oil. 10/10!
