If you’re headed to Cabo San Lucas, you will find restaurant choices abound.
But if you want the most divine dining experience at one of the top Cabo San Lucas restaurants, you can’t ask for one better than El Farallon. The hotel, Pedregal de Cabo San Lucas, and restaurant are perched on the cliffs of Capella Pedregal above the Pacific Ocean. The views are breathtaking!
The walking path from the front of the hotel to the restaurant is long, winding, and picture-worthy. Take your time trekking to the restaurant so you can absorb all of the features along the way. Oh, and wear comfortable shoes!
Book an early dinner reservation time so you can watch the sunset. It’s spectacular. We booked at 5:30 and it was perfect but it will depend on the time of year you are there. Check your weather app for the time the sun will be set before you make your reservation. Get there early – before your dinner seating time – so you have time to relax and enjoy one of their signature cocktails as well as enjoy the ambiance.
Unique to this gorgeous outdoor restaurant is their Champagne Terrace. Carved into the cliffs, the terrace overlooks the beach and ocean, the perfect setting for enjoying more than 15 different champagnes ranging from Blanc de Blancs to Rosé and vintage champagnes. The staff will give you an education on all the champagnes, as well as, guide you on making a selection from their moles and artisan salts to add a special twist to your taste buds as you sip the champagne.
The restaurant is seafood-heavy with a “fresh fish market” displaying the catch of the day. The menu changes daily based on what is available. A couple of us had the lobster and it was a very good portion for a very reasonable cost and it was delicious! Also, tablemates tried the local fish that was similar to halibut and it was equally good. If seafood isn’t your fave, try the rib-eye. One of our diners raved about the dish which was unexpected at a decidedly seafood restaurant. For vegetarians, there is a great variety of vegetable choices.
All dishes come with a tasting of the day’s three appetizers, and entrees come with family-style sides. For dessert, don’t pass up the homemade donuts. There were eight of us, and we loved every bite of our food as well as the great service and romantic setting. Did I mention the musical entertainment to further the enjoyable atmosphere?
If we had to vote, we’d give this experience a 10. That’s why this restaurant is ranked as one of the very top restaurants out of 479 in Cabo San Lucas! But, make reservations as soon as you can because they book up fast.
