The location, views and waitstaff are all a 10+...however, the food is a different experience....it was very well plated and presented... Upon tasting it we were very disappointed....the goganzola salad was heavily oiled making it impossible to finish...the beef carpaccio had so much oil the taste was mushy...the risotto with rib eye was buried or soaking in melted Parmesan cheese and surrounded by oil...the risotto was also under cooked and I really don't understand why anyone would top risotto with shredded rib eye...I don't know what kind of meat that was - this dish also could not be finished...our server felt my partner really deserved an opportunity to chose another dish...after a little pressing she chose the gnocchi with salmon...sadly, that dish was sinking in a cream sauce and the salmon was not cooked at all..although the our experience was not what we'd hoped, it was a windy evening and the "Sunset" sadly, had to be set up inside...noise level was deafening...BUT...we will give it a second chance...next year...

Absolutely gorgeous view, the best in Cabo for sure. Make a reservation as early as possible so you can request the best table. It does get chilly once the sun goes down so bring a jacket. Live music was great, food was good, service was awesome.

This place is just so beautiful. The scenery it's just breathtaking! The attention to detail is amazing. The servers are so friendly and helpful! The food is soooooo GOOD! The chef came to ask how dinner and the visit was and I could t wait to tell him! For my birthday they gave me a tray that said happy birthday with like 4 different desserts! We ordered a tiramisu and it was so tasty too. For drinks we ordered a Chilean house wine I think and it was 33 bucks? It was a cav, and it was delishious. Pricing on food it's cheaper than expected. I think we payed 23 bucks per entree.

Hands down the most picturesque restaurant I have ever eaten at. The view was unbeatable. The service was wonderful. Typically I would expect restaurants this great to move you along and try to turn your table fast, but they didn't rush us at all and we were able to sit there for over two hours and watch the entire sunset. They even bring you blankets to stay warm because it can get windy! It wasn't overly expensive either, for two of us to have a couple drinks, salads, entrees, and coffee it was only $100 USD, which also included complimentary roasted red pepper soup before our salads and little mini desserts after dinner. The service everywhere in Cabo was fantastic but especially good at this restaurant. Highly recommend!

We have dined at Sunset da Mona Lisa many times and it surely is a place not to missed when coming to Cabo for the first time as the views are spectacular. The food quality and presentation were the best this year. Unfortunately, it was extremely windy and cool so the food did not stay hot longer than a couple of moments. Service was good, however there were long waits between requests. We will be back when we bring others with us who have never been.

Hands down, the best restaurant we have gone to in Cabo, and in the top 5 restaurants we have gone to anywhere in the world. I highly recommend their fettuccini dish. Better than any I ever had, even in NYC. Service was terrific too. The nicest people work there. And obviously the views are to die for. Wasn't even that expensive. In March at least, dress warmly for dinner because the wind can be cold and annoying. They gave us blankets though.

What an amazing experience we had dining at Sunset Mona Lisa. It was my birthday and we were given an amazing table overlooking the waves, not that there are really any bad tables! We were sent an amuse, not sure if that is the norm, or if it was because it was my birthday. The food was fresh, clean and delicious, and the service was impeccable and seamless. The staff also sent me a special dessert for my birthday. Fantastic sunset, beautiful guitar music, great food and cocktails...oh, and we got engaged! An evening we won't soon forget.

 (Denver)·Dined on March 19, 2017

Let's get the obvious out of the way. The most spectacular views of a restaurant with a patio/terrace in Cabo, inspiring and romantic. Also, we thought the service was excellent.
Apart from this, it's all terrible. We were skeptical about this being the "best Italian restaurant in Cabo" but wanted a break from purely Mexican food. This restaurant was started by an Italian from Florence decades ago and it boasts about having a Michelin-trained Italian chef. Being born in Italy myself, I was certainly hopeful this could be a gem. This is also a short walking distance from the house we were renting.
The appetizers were just fine, nothing fabulous. The burrata was stuffed with smaller cubes of mozzarella and croutons I believe but the outer shell was not moist and creamy as it should be. The pesto and olive tapenade along with it salvage the dish somewhat. The fried calamari comes with fried zucchini and inexplicably sprinkled with grated Pecorino cheese. The squid was not crunchy and not salted well enough. No tentacles, just rings, which is disappointing. The zucchini was quite good.
The main courses were a bigger disappointment. The sea bass (local, not branzino) did not taste fresh. It came with a pea puree. Tasted bland. The octopus paccheri was a disaster. The large noodles were al dente but the accompanying puttanesca sauce was not ideal, a combination of tomato paste and few spices. The octopus tasted like a Michelin tire, chewy and rubbery, totally inedible. The concerned manager did an excellent job of handling this, removing the dish and later agreeing that the octopus was not cooked properly. The item was not charged and they insisted on bringing over a small plate of fettuccine with a creamy mushroom sauce, quite good. Also comped the dessert, a tasty tiramisu. However, even though we mentioned that this was a birthday celebration when making the Open Table reservation, no one at the restaurant acknowledged this during our stay. Not a gourmet dinner

Fantastic view -- Be there for sunset - dress warmly - always windy there.

No wonder it's rated one of the most scenic restaurant settings in the World.
Food is outstanding - Pricing is comparable to NYC good restaurants - so by no means is it the inexpensive Mexican pricing of many restaurants in the Baja- but the food/presentation/sunset over the Arches -- great Value.

Beautiful sunset view. Romantic tables overlooking the water. Our service was wonderful, scenery was ideal. The food overall was just ok.
Some was good other not so much. The octopus was delicious, the lobster pasta was plain. The salmon tartare was light and tasty. The scallops were not anything exciting. The Gorgonzola salads were very good and refreshing. We had nice wine and great service. Definitely the place to come for outdoor scenery.

We went in Feb and it is WINDY and a little chilly after the sun goes down. Take a jacket and they have blankets and warming lamps there too. Great find.

This is a must in Cabo! It's a short drive from any resort and totally worth it.

The food and the service were outstanding!

The atmosphere was breathtaking and you'll never get a better sunset view of Cabo.

We were also shocked when we received our bill )in a good way ) The prices are so very reasonable for the quality of food you receive and the attention and service you receive also:))

Please do yourself a favor and reserve a table at Sunset Mona Lisa. You'll be forever glad you did !

We have dined at Mona Lisa four times over the past three months. It is our favorite restaurant whenever we are in Cabo. This was our only disappointing visit. The food, as always, was wonderful but, on this particular evening, the service was not up to their usual standard. The delivery of all three courses was disjointed with some of us waiting excessive times for food delivery, while others at our table had already received their food.
