A stunning new concept of free flowing shapes and textures in the heart of Cabo. Elegant, artistic, and romantic are the words that best describe this unique restaurant. The two-story-high interior walls are adorned fantasy Mexican decor. Note the spectacular stained glass, wood, and iron circular stairway designed by Guadalajara artist Ernesto Cruise that to the second-floor dining area.
For starters, don’t pass up the tortilla soup. It’s prepared in a rich, picante tomato broth, then topped with cheese, avocado, and sour cream. The seafood cocktails come loaded with Baja’s freshest fish, succulent prawns, and scallops in their own campechana sauce.
Dozens of ingredients are combined and cooked for 24 hours to create this dark, rich traditional chocolate-spiced salsa. Enjoy it on enchiladas, grilled chicken breast, and tamales.
The Buccaneer fish encrusted in mild chile and served with an exotic salsa of mango and papaya recalls the Caribbean. From the Gulf of México comes the Medallones Chipochamp dish, succulent beef medallions bathed in their own salsa of chipotle and mushrooms accompanied with Cajun potatoes and beans. Finish a perfect meal with the classic strawberry cheesecake or flan.
Prices range from $7 U.S. for the Que Tamale (chicken wrapped in banana leaf) to the $35 U.S. lobster dinner. There’s a full bar, and delicious cold margaritas are a specialty.
