    The service was outstanding. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. Unfortunately two of our courses were undercooked and had to be sent back. The food was good, but not reflective of the price.

    Gorgepus setting. Our server, Joira, was OUTSTANDING. Best service we have had in our two weeks in Cabo. Food presentation and quality was excellent. The spinach parmeaean soup was out of this world! Only complaint was that the food should have been just a bit hotter. Other than that, my favorite meal in Cabo.

    My wife and I tried this restaurant while staying at Vidanta. We were disappointed in the overall experience. My wife ordered a filet, but they were out of this cut at 7pm. This caused us to totally change our order. We ordered the New York strip for two. The steak was good, not great . It was huge. We ordered the grilled root vegetables and garlic Texas toast as sides. The vegetables were good, but the Texas toast was not good, especially for the price. This is not a restaurant we would try again.

    We ce rated our anniversary here. Excellent hotel with views over the ocean. Hostess was very pleasant, let us choose where we wanted to sit. We sat outside on the patio which was gorgeous. It wS surrounded by water, gardens and a view of the ocean. Our server was very efficient, pleasant and very helpful. Food was brought out quickly and was delicious, a good size potion. They also brought out a dessert to celebrate our anniversary which wS both delicious and a nice surprise. It was very reasonablely priced too. We loved it. We would love to love back, but we leave tomorrow. Maybe next time.

    Beautiful restaurant right on the beach. Ordered the picanha steak with a baked potato and macaroni and cheese. The food quality was ok, I asked for the picanha to be cooked medium but it was almost medium-well when it was served. Everything else was serviceable. The views were incredible, this is a beautiful property. Service was fast and friendly. Tips are included automatically but don't show the tip amount which was strange. Overall, I would return.

    Overpriced. $75 for 16 oz prime rib. Meat was of mediocre quality, cut thin and of questionable weight. Salad just ok. Chocolate lava cake average. Wine list was marked up. Two vines wine able to be purchased in US for less than $10 was close to $50. Consumers reconsider this choice!

    Drinks are really expensive including $13 for a bottle of still water. Kind of noisy but I think that has to do with who is next to your in the next booth. They forgot to bring my wife’s birthday chocolate shell with chocolate moose inside until after we were 1/2 through the cheesecake we ordered. Steak was very very small and lobster kind of messy due to sauce they put on the shell. Should have offered wet towels to clean up.

    En general me gusta el lugar, ya hemos ido antes y tuvimos una muy buena experiencia por eso regresamos, pero en esta ocasión uno de los cortes de carne no estuvo en su término y era la mitad de grasa, al mencionarle al mesero que no nos gustó el platillo ya no regresó a preguntarnos si queríamos algo más, mencionamos que era un cumpleaños y no hubo mañanitas ni postre, mala experiencia, la carta de vinos estaba incompleta, no creo que volvamos pronto

    Celebrating our 10th Anniversary. Service was amazing. Jairo was our server. His recommendations and hospitality were exceptional. He reviewed my listed allergies provided to the restaurant prior to our ordering. Tailored the recommendations to our palette preferences. The view as we entered was breathtaking. Watching the ocean waves crash against the shore, the sunset peaking over the western hillside gave beautiful pink skies reflecting off the poolside backdrop.

    This place is terrible- do not waste your time. You enter the hotel and it’s very nice with the bridge and the water walkways taking u to the restaurant. We were walked by I thought was the hostess until she was throwing her sales pitch to stay for a week if we did a tour and sat in for a 90 min pitch- and take our credit card details to hold the spot!! New this was going to go south very soon. Entering the restaurant it felt like a cafe and faux greenery everywhere very tacky… the waiter gives us the menu and then tells us it’s not updated and some items price have changed - never have I ever witness this it was so comical that we had a combination of a tasteless steak fajitas, a roasted chicken that was so dry it it was barely eatable- so much potential for such a beautiful spot a total waste of money!
