Dos Mares Marina Grill & Bar opened on the Cabo San Lucas Marina last December. The Mediterranean-style restaurant took over the spot formerly occupied by Barometro, a privileged location that features superb views of the Marina and the boutique shops of Puerto Paraiso and Luxury Avenue.
Like its predecessor, Dos Mares boasts a casual chic atmosphere with aquarium-esque accents highlighting the bar and shaded dining area, and al fresco dining offered along the water's edge. Chef Juan Manuel Sánchez' menu mainly focuses on fresh local seafood, but also includes pastas and steak dishes, as well as a tasty selection of gourmet pizzas.

Dos Mares excels in several areas, showcasing affordable prices, creative presentations, and some bold flavor combinations. Sánchez is one of the best young chefs in Los Cabos, and his dishes are often highlighted by unexpected yet delightful accents, from caramelized shallots to dried beet chips. A tasting menu is available, and in addition to acquainting diners with the restaurant's range of culinary pleasures, provides some terrific pairing options.
Dos Mares maintains a generous wine list with several nice offerings from Mexico's finest wine region, Guadalupe Valley. Decadent desserts are also a specialty and include a rich chocolate fondant, anise pana cotta and Bavarian ice cream.
