Many of the best fine dining options in Los Cabos are found along the tourist corridor that connects Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. Manta, the premier restaurant at the recently opened The Cape: A Thompson Hotel, has quickly earned a reputation for outstanding food, wine and service. The first Baja California peninsula based project for Enrique Olvera, acclaimed chef of Pujol in México City and Cosme in New York City, Manta specializes in seafood focused Pacific Rim fusion cuisine. And the sunset views of Land's End from Manta's location overlooking Monuments Beach are absolutely breathtaking.
Benchmark local luxury resorts like One & Only Palmilla and Sheraton Hacienda del Mar also feature excellent onsite restaurants, with spectacular views ably complemented by delicious dishes and impeccable service. SEARED and Agua by Larbi at One&Only Palmilla are each helmed by their own celebrated chefs–Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Larbi Dahrouch, respectively–while Asian fusions and fine wine distinguish Volker Romeike's menus at Pitayahas, the signature eatery at Sheraton's Hacienda del Mar.
Cabo San Lucas' exclusive The Resort at Pedregal is also home to several superb fine dining establishments: most notably, El Farallón, which not only showcases fresh and local market-style seafood, but also a stunning cliffside aerie overlooking crashing Pacific Ocean waves.
Don Sanchez is the fine dining locale of choice in San José del Cabo. Restaurateur and chef Tadd Chapman has created a culinary oasis in the heart of the downtown area, with elegantly plated seafood, steaks and tapas, expansive terrace and courtyard dining areas, and the best wine selection in Los Cabos.
