    I’ve been to Agua several times over the years, but this time we were seated in the coveted lawn-area banquets next to the sea. Magical would be the word I might have used for this experience, because it certainly was that. But the word transcendent seems a better choice for this event; the weather, view, service, wine and, of course the food, combined to transport us away from outside drama and worries, leaving us to enjoy the extraordinary moment. Thanks to all of those personnel we met and to those we didn’t, for a highly memorable, delightful evening.

    The service and atmosphere were amazing! The Sommelier was very friendly and knowledgeable and the wine was delicious! Loved the tortilla soup and the bread selection. Unfortunately, the Sea Bass was too fishy, dry and bland. The Filet was over cooked and the vegetables under seasoned. We had a great time but for the $$$$ the meal was disappointing.

    This is the reason they call this resort the “one and only” because it is outstanding!! My wife and I we’re celebrating our anniversary and everything was over the top and perfect!!! I highly recommend aqua to anyone coming to the Cabo area. It’s magnificent!! Our waiter Benito was EXCELLENT!!! He was very knowledgeable of the menu and explained all the specialty items for the night very clearly. He did not hover over our table but when ever you needed something he was there to get it for you!! He was very professional and very kind. I am a small business owner and I would be very proud to have a team member like him. The Agua restaurant is beautiful in the evening, we had a full moon overlooking the sea of Cortez and it made for a very special night. Thanks to the staff for making our evening so special!!

    We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted by Alexa, very efficient, knowledgeable and kind. She seated us on the outside terrace with a beautiful view of the water. The tables were spaced far enough apart for relative privacy and the live music was also at an enjoyable distance. The waitstaff and servers were knowledgeable, friendly and pleasant. The food was fresh, delicious and creatively prepared. This is a special restaurant and a wonderful experience!

    This is the nicest place we have ever dined at. We came here for our anniversary since we stayed at One and Only Palmilla on our honeymoon and it did not disappoint! The service was impeccable; they even brought a bug deflector because there was one pesky fly. The views are beautiful of the Pacific and the food was delicious. Their signature Palmilla margarita was great too.

    Fabulous lunch with dramatic ocean views at Agua! The One and Only Palmilla never disappoints, a memorable birthday 🎂 experience for my husband and son. We started with the house guac 🥑, salsa and chips, yummy! Then we really wanted some coconut 🥥 shrimps and the chef agreed to prepare them for us even though they were not on the menu!! The fajitas, tacos and delicious ceasar salad were all fantastic!! Fit for foodies. We will be back!

    Agua is a place we always know will be delicious and special. Last night was no exception. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable and welcoming… we felt embraced upon arrival and happily satisfied when we left. Okay, the sea view is beyond beautiful as well… As much as I would like to keep it a secret, I cannot recommend Agua enough to anyone who has an appreciation for wonderful food and exceptional service.

    For such a beautiful setting and great service the food quality was very disappointing.. When you’re going to spend $400 plus on dinner it better be a very very nice dinner. There are many restaurants with beautiful views in Cabo. Telling people it’s my pleasure over and over again doesn’t make up for the fact that the food did not match the setting. I would suggest going to palmilla Aqua for a brunch I was there for Easter brunch and it was exceptional. I haven’t been there four times now, I don’t think I’ll be going back unless it’s for a brunch like Easter or something like that.
