Mediterranean
YAYA is a term of endearment for grandmothers all across Mediterranean and Latin American cultures. Originating in Greece, the name evokes a sense of home, comfort, and generational passed-down wisdom and traditions – like cuisine.

YAYA connects Chileno Bay’s Latin American DNA with a European culinary heritage– Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal all come through in the flavor profiles represented in this new epicurean experience, making YAYAs everywhere proud.

The equivalent of a comforting embrace, the familiar yet elevated culinary ethos at YAYA is drawn from the flavours of home. An active, open hearth kitchen takes center stage at this indoor/outdoor dining room, where fresh ingredients and artisanal preparation become the main forms of expression in Chef Eli Godinez's seasonal menus.

Reconnect with loved ones through the tradition of sharing family-style dishes in an intimate, relaxing environment at the geographical heart of Chileno Bay Resort.<

    Food, ambience & service was all good however be aware of hidden service charge. When asking about leaving a tip the waiter failed to inform me a service charge was included. Leaving a 40% tip on a $550 bill makes one feel taken advantage of. Won’t be back.

    Outstanding food, service and ambiance!! This is a great little hidden gem! Very flavorful dishes! Beware the tapas style appetizers are plentiful so don’t order too many if you want an entree. Also make sure they serve you the chocolate cake at room temperature if you decide on this really good desert!

    Outstanding! Turned off the highway to get away from a traffic jam and made a last minute reso at Yaya. Was very serendipitous and perhaps the food highlight of our trip. Very family friendly, excellent service and impeccable food. We will be back!

    Claudio was one of the best waiters we have ever had. The food was incredible. Kevin was also provided an amazing hospitality experience. The attention to detail of this team, from the GM to wait staff was of the highest caliber. This is one of the best restaurants in all of Cabo. Great job!!!

    We read about Yaya before arriving in Cabo and were dying to try it. It did NOT disappoint. We had Claudio as our server, and he was so knowledgeable about all of the foods and their flavors. He made excellent recommendations and steered us towards having the greatest culinary experience. He was gracious, kind, and not pushy at all while doing it. Must try the Yayarita (the carrot juice element was initially a turn-off to me, but you don’t even taste it), the mussels, the crudite platter, and the pizzas, with their homemade dough. The manager, German, was also incredibly attentive. He stopped by several times throughout our meal to make sure everything was to our liking and wanted feedback, as they have only been open three months. He shared, for example, that since opening they changed the size of the meatballs on the menu to make them the “perfect-sized bite.” At the end of the night the manager himself made sure we had a golf cart to go back to the main lobby. I have no doubt, with people there who care this much, as great as Yaya is right now it will only get better.

    Simply the best! Comal is great and gets the headlines but YaYa is the new star in Cabo and at Chileno Bay! Traveled the world on vacation and come to Cabo 2-3 times per year for last decade...travel for business every week for last decade and eat at the best places in NYC, Chicago, Dallas...YaYa can hang with any! It starts with the service and that is from Gaby the host to every server to the Chef and his team. They are happy to be there and work well together. I don't think they know what the word "NO" is....they simply find a way! The homemade pastas are awesome....get the Prawns or the Meatballs and add pasta to the dish! All of the salads were solid and the bread (homemade and from the pizza oven) is so good. I caught fish one day, brought it back and Chef put together an amazing meal for us. Solid bartender and good wine list too. I will say it again, there are a lot of good food options in the Cabo area and you can comfortably put YaYa on that list. Regardless of where you are staying, you should make a reservation here and you will leave happy. It truly is an experience and the staff will make sure you leave with a smile on your face! BTW, if you like Tiramasu or Smores', you will have two huge amazing endings to your dinner.

    Chef needs to see what the definition of a shawarma is. Because i got a torta with chicken in it. Appetizers were good but thats where it stops also the waiter was great. Hostess was rude Restaraunt was empty its 105 degrees out and i said we will sit inside she said no your reservation is outside her boss stepped in before i can respond and said inside is fine there was no one there. First impressions are everything. Will not go back or recommend.

    Was a very nice surprise at Chileno Bay Resort. We had lunch there twice on our trip and everything we had was outstanding. The restaurant looks over the pool so the view is wonderful. Service was top notch. The Chef was trained in Italy and it’s apparent in the Mediterranean menu. Food and drinks are Resort pricey as a couple of beers coming at a cost of over 30 dollars seems like to much but food is well worth it.
